Stephen D Gabrielson

About me



To my knowledge, no attorney in the St. Cloud/Brainerd area has tried as many cases for injury victims as I have in the past 20 years. This experience has allowed me to earn both State and National certification as a Civil Trial Specialist, an award granted to less than 1% of Minnesota attorneys.




You need caring assistance from someone who takes the time to know you and your case. I take that time, and you will see it in my diligent preparation and presentation of your claim.


Proven Success:


I have recovered out-of-court settlements for my clients totaling in the tens of millions of dollars and have won some of the most substantial verdicts on records in Central Minnesota, including the first million dollar injury verdict in Stearns County.
