Gabriel’s ultimate goal is to help clients. His prior work with the nation’s largest title insurance group allows him to identify and prepare for issues prior to their happening. Likewise, his practice at Brown & Sterling is built on this philosophy of preventing problems before they arise and preparing for potential future issues.
Post-law school, Gabriel attained his Master of Laws in Taxation (LL.M) through New York University’s Tax program to better help clients in all facets of their lives. Tax plays a large role in almost all events, whether personal or business-related, and Gabriel is determined to continually be able to provide the tax expertise and knowledge necessary for the success of his clients.
