  • Gilbert B Feibleman

    I have know Mr. Gage for over 30 years. During that time I have had many cases with him, some of which have gone to trial and some of which have settled. He is very professional and knows when to settle when it is in the clients best interests and when to advocate in court if needed. He is also very knowledgeable on the substantive and procedural areas of family law giving advice to lawyers from all over the state. He is one of the few lawyers send cases to him if I have a conflict.
