Learn More About Gabe

Gabe maintains a general law practice serving southwest Georgia and has experience handling matters involving civil litigation, real estate transactions, family law, environmental law, estate planning, business formation, civil appeals, and criminal law. Gabe has a diverse background that sets him apart from most attorneys.

Prior to enrolling in law school at the age of 31, Gabe had earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in environmental engineering, served nearly four years on active duty with the U.S. army, and spent two years managing the environmental program at a chemical manufacturing plant.

While serving in the army, Gabe earned his commission as an infantry officer. He also completed the army’s elite Airborne and Ranger training programs. After completing his training at Fort Benning, Gabe led a platoon with the First Calvary Division during a yearlong combat tour in Iraq, where he earned a bronze star medal for his combat service.
