About Gabriela

Learn Gabriela’s areas of practice.

Gabby graduated magna cum laude from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Political Sciences and Paralegal Studies. She earned her Juris Doctor from Widener University School of Law. While at law school she was a member and then the president of the International Law Society. During her last two years of law school, Gabriela participated in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court competition and she received an award for best brief. At Widener, Gabriela was the recipient of the Pamela K Karpouzis Memorial Scholarship Award and the Paul Isaac Leiter Memorial Scholarship Award.

As a native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, she is fluent in Spanish. By working with the Hispanic population in their native language, they do not have to worry about the language and cultural barrier, and can be confident they are getting the legal service they need.

Gabriela is passionate about immigrant rights and the injured worker. In 2006, she was part of the five-member committee that organized a ‘Day without an Immigrant’ march in Reading, PA, where more than 3,000 people attended and rallied for an immigration reform. She continues to help immigrants by representing indigent migrants pro bono.

Gabby is active with the Berks County Bar Association, where she sits on the Board of Directors and serves as Co-chair of the Minority Law Section. The section/committee’s purpose is to promote full and equal participation of minorities in the justice system in general and to identify issues minorities are facing within the judicial system and find solutions for the same.

In 2015, Gabriela wrote a chapter for The ABA Medical-Legal Guides: Head Trauma and Brain Injury for Lawyers. This legal treatise details the law surrounding traumatic brain injuries.

Prior to earning her law degree, Gabriela worked for three years as a social security and workers’ compensation paralegal. She was also a court interpreter in personal injury and immigration hearings. Prior to her arrival to the United States, Gabriela worked for the United Nations Association of the Dominican Republic organizing educational and volunteer programs.

Truck Accident
What I want to say about GB does not fit here because is so much. Gabby Raful and Mike Malvay handled my truck accident and have since become family to me. From the moment that you walk in you can feel the trust and positivity. Yohalna, the paralegal in the front makes you feel comfortable. Javier the Philly paralegal also makes you feel comfortable Gabby and Mike give 100 percent. Gabby is one of those rare attorneys that text you and keeps you posted all the time even on weekends.They don't think about money, they think and give you what's best for you. You can feel the trust and security. Gabby is simply amazing, and they make a dream team. I am Gabby s number one fan. What I appreciated the most was that I would call Gabby and she would call or text immediately right back. I highly recommend them.

My experience
When I was uncertain of what todo in my situation, I was given a recommendation to go and find guidance, so I did I visited the office of Galfand Berger LLP and Gabriela Raful took me under her wing. When talking about experience the quest at hand should be plain and simple: Trust worthy Transparent Dependable And full of knowledge The ability that this attorney has to get her client what they may need is incredible. Gabriela Raful was able to get me the settlement that I deserved and that I became more than grateful for. Thank you Gabriela Raful

The Best!!
I have known Gabriela for over ten years as a colleague and friend. Gabriela has the perfect blend of diligence and compassion that is a rarity in the legal field these days. I can truly say that if you want the absolute BEST experience and outcome of your case, look no further than Gabriela. I am proud to have her as a friend and colleague, and anyone would be equally proud to have her as an attorney.

Auto accident - fast results
Gabby helped my dad settle his auto accident in less than a year. She got the full policy of the stricking car and the entire coverage of my dad's underinsured coverage. In a year she got everything done! She cares. She called on weekends and evenings and texted all the time. She kept us informed.

Work on my Social Security diasability
Gabby was absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend her again. As a matter of fact I did recommend her and my friend was extremely pleased with her services. I was and have been dealing with cancer. I had every intention to return to work but that was not to be the case. Gabby basically took care of all matters concerning social security.At the time I was receiving chemo and was so sick I could not even attempt to take care of all the paperwork involved. She was kind,patient and walked me through any questions and concerns. What I was so appreciative of was how she was able to get me my rightful benefits that were due to us. That money helped us out tremendously as I had to leave a job that paid quite well. I would highly recommend Gabby again and I truly believe she is an asset to your firm. Thank You

Gets results fast!
Gabby helped my dad in his work injury case and secured a settlement quickly. She wasted no time and knew what she was doing. She went beyond the injury case and helped him filed for disability and got it in just 3 months. She cares about her clients!
