Gabe joined Smith Alling in October 2021 as an Associate Attorney.
Gabe came to the Pacific Northwest in 2013 from Michigan to attend Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, where he excelled and graduated first in his class, and was Associate Editor of the Environmental Law Review. After law school, he moved to Tacoma and spent two years as a law clerk for Judge Rich Melnick at the Washington Court of Appeals, followed by another two for Justice Sheryl Gordon McCloud at the Washington State Supreme Court. During his time at both courts, Gabe worked on a broad variety of cases that raised complex questions of will interpretation, administrative rulemaking, and class action procedure, among many other issues.
Gabe will apply his extensive knowledge of Washington law to aid his client with all their legal problems. He closely analyzes each case and takes a strategic approach to guide his client to the best outcomes available.
When he’s not working, Gabe enjoys wandering the mounts of the Pacific Northwest with his wife and son, and reading about American history.
