I had a very positive experience with Attorney David Gabriel and his staff in my attempts to modify my alimony according to the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Act. I had 3 previous failed attempts with other attorneys (full disclosure - these were before the bill took effect in March 2012). The Massachusetts legal system is still working on understanding this bill and David, and his staff, did a lot of research to make sure I qualified and would have a high degree of success (no guarantees where human judges are involved). David and his staff were always responsive, informative and patient with any of my questions as the process is inherently not quick when dealing with opposing counsel. Upon going to family court I was granted a fair and very satisfactory decision.
I would not hesitate to hire David again - but sincerely hope that I don't have to.

I had a pending restraining order that an ex-girlfriend had unjustly filed against me. Upon recommendations from local attorneys in the area, all of whom recommended David to me, I hired him to represent me in the upcoming trial hearing that was scheduled.
One of the toughest judges was assigned to my case, and I had already began to give up any chance of beating the restraining order. However, David never gave up and was able to beat the restraining order in court that day. I cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone who might have a case similar to mine.

Attorney David Gabriel is quite simply the BEST attorney around. I retained him to represent me in my recent divorce and I couldn't have been happier. His vast experience and extensive knowledge enabled him to see all angles of my case and present me with insightful options. He always took the time to thoroughly consider every possible scenario. Attorney Gabriel really listened to me and respected my requests and, just as importantly, knew exactly when and how to reel me in when it was in my best interest. His caring and compassionate nature was a constant source of reassurance throughout the process. Ultimately, his brilliant negotiation allowed me to settle the case, saving me considerable time and money.
Having worked closely with many excellent attorneys in my professional life, I can confidently say that Attorney David Gabriel truly stands out from the crowd.
David is nothing short of exceptional and I am so very grateful to have had him in my corner.

I started working with David and his staff in the spring of 2009 and came to a final divorce agreement in December 2009. With four children, and a very difficult ex-wife, he was able to guide me in making informed decisions and was able to negotiate terms that were very beneficial to me in the long run. I continued to work with David through the full settlement of assets and several modifications as circumstances evolved. He was always proffessional and handled himself very well in court. I have recommended David to friends and would definitely work with him again. His staff was very responsive and always supported him in a timely manner.

Atty Gabriel is a very competent , respectful ,and patient attorney. He always took the time to explain the process as many times as needed. He went out of his way to keep me informed. Most inquires were answered the same day , if not within 24 hours.
Atty Gabriel 's staff is respectful, responsive , knowledgable and professional.
We developed a case strategy which was very successful. I got an excellent result and he convinced me that further court involvement was not in my best interest since I would end up with the same result. He did not want to take any more of my money and go the litigation route because the result would be the same.
I would highly recommend Atty. Gabriel as he made a very stressful time in my life a lot easier.

David Gabriel did an outstanding job on my divorce and child custody case. After having been through 4 previous lawyers, David was able to help me turn my case around completely. He worked late nights, weekends, and was available around the clock when needed for explanations. He was fantastic in trial and I cannot thank him enough for all he did to help both me, and more importantly, my children.

David handled my divorce in 2013 -2014, like the arch angel Gabriel. I had no idea what I was getting into or what was involved. He guided me through the process. He is very competent, intelligent and a caring individual. He understood where I was coming from and was there to listen and help. I never hesitated to call David and David always made himself available to me. David did a great job.

I have an immense amount of gratitude and respect for David Gabriel and David Broderick, who helped me through a difficult and stressful divorce and custody situation in 2013.
They are compassionate, kind and caring. Even better, they really know what they're doing. Their deep experience and expertise with the people and processes associated with Essex County family and criminal court systems was invaluable. They helped me navigate through what felt like an extremely foreign landscape. I always felt confident that I was in good hands with them.
And while my ex-husband may be one of the most challenging characters to negotiate with on the planet, David and David ultimately got me the custody and divorce agreement terms that were what I needed to feel like my daughter and I could have a clean and fresh start.
I honestly don't know what I would have done without them to help me through such a trying time. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for them as people and attorneys. They know what they're doing, take their work seriously. and have good hearts.
I would recommend them to anyone looking for an attorney on the North Shore or greater Massachusetts.

Although i feel David Gabriel is an experienced Lawyer, i would not recommend him. As my case proceeded towards the status hearing David became more and more unprofessional in his communication, all too often treating me with insults and a condescending manner
After not hearing from David for 3 weeks, without any warning, and with only 3 days before hearing Attorney Gabriel sent by courier a motion to withdraw. Calls to his office offered no explanation for another day and a half.
Two months later my new lawyer settled the case.
Although he still had 50% of the retainer remaining, I do feel that money was a huge issue for this attorney.
On a plus side he was very helpful in bringing my new attorney up to speed quickly His staff is good.

I am very happy I retained Attorney David Gabriel to help me with my case. David and his staff were knowledgeable, informative, accessible and professional. If I have a personal injury case in the future, I would absolutely call on David again, David kept me informed every step of the way and I was very pleased with the outcome.
