Gabriella Garbero is a disability attorney based in St. Louis, Missouri who has been a passionate disability advocate for more than 15 years.

Gabriella received her law degree from Saint Louis University School of Law in 2021 and graduated with a Health Law concentration. During law school, she worked as a Faculty Fellow for Professor Elizabeth Pendo, which required extensive research on disability law and bioethics topics and instilled in Gabriella an appreciation for legal research and writing. This appreciation carried over into her work as Technical Managing Editor of the Saint Louis University Journal of Health Law & Policy.

Gabriella published two legal articles during her time as a student. The first, “Sex-Based Discrimination in Healthcare Under Section 1557: The New Final Rule and Supreme Court Developments”, was co-written with Professor Pendo and Professor Brietta Clark and was published in The Health Lawyer. Gabriella’s second legal article, “Rights Not Fundamental: Disability and the Right to Marry”, was selected from student submissions and was published in the Saint Louis University Journal of Health Law & Policy.

Gabriella’s love of disability policy and strong advocacy background was put into practice during her law school summer internships working in the Legal Advocacy for Adults with Mental Illness (LAAMI) department at Legal Services of Eastern Missouri and at the ACLU of Missouri. Both of these roles taught Gabriella how to directly advocate for clients who were being oppressed by larger systems and, most importantly, to become and remain a good listener.

In addition to her professional work, Gabriella is actively involved in the disability community. She is a passionate advocate for disability rights and justice, and has been recognized for her efforts advocating for disability marriage equality in the New York Times, Vice News, and Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien. She also proudly serves on the Florissant Disability Access Commission, and she is always seeking new opportunities to use her skills to help empower the disability community.

Outside of her law and advocacy work, Gabriella enjoys spending time with her fiancé Juan, her dogs Bonnie, Ginger Ale, and Driveway, and her cat Xanthippe. She also streams on Twitch and occasionally updates her blog, The Girl Who Sits.
