I love practicing personal injury law, and I am good at it. My focus is my ability to tell your story. This is what we're good at.

I teach other plaintiff lawyers in Texas how to present their clients' damages in the most effective way. I tend to look at cases visually and get to know each of my clients and their families in order to understand what the collision or the injury has done to their world. Often the contrast between pre-collision and post-collision is dramatic. If I can show that contrast, then the insurance companies realize that the case is quite real, and they realize that they now have an opportunity to help you. If they balk at that opportunity to help, then we give that opportunity to a jury.  

The effectiveness of how we tell your story is what will make a jury empathize with what has happened to you; juries will help when they understand the harms you have suffered. 

If you have been the victim of a drunk or reckless driver, if you have been hit by someone who was not looking out for your motorcycle, if you have been t-boned by someone not paying attention to the traffic light because a text was more important than your safety, I can and I will help you.

The best
During our long and painful recovery process from a head injury, Len was the best thing that happened to us. We still talk about "before Len" and "after Len". We have met him more than dozen times and every single time he showed that he really cared for us and wanted to bring us closure. To me, that is the single most important quality needed in a personal injury attorney. He also works very very hard. Our case generated several hundreds of pages of medical records and he was on top of the whole thing. Len's combination of solid expertise, genuine compassion and amazing hard work is very rare to find in any field. It is especially valuable in a personal injury attorney. Len's team is as good as the man himself! Tiffany and Andrea were simply the best. They were always very compassionate, very thorough in their work and very good to work with. In summary -- if you are in an unfortunate situation of having to sue someone after an injury, Len and his team will help you find closure.

Absolutely Dynamic!
I cannot say enough about Len Gabbay and his staff. I was the unfortunate victim of an animal attack that really turned all aspects of my life upside down. Mr Gabbay and his team of ultimate professionals worked incredibly hard and revealed an unacceptable standard of safety and security by the animal owner. This in turn led to a judgement that greatly exceded all of my expectations. I could not imagine a more positive personal experience than I had with Mr Gabbay. Every call, email, and text was answered promptly and with high priority. All staff members... Ariddsa, Tiffany, Donna and last but defintely not least Denise are truly above and beyond and will go to great lengths, as they did for me. They all really care about you and your case as if you were family. I had a more than Excellent experience with Len Gabbay and I have and will continue to recommend him

An attorny you can trust? YES!!!
From day one Len and his staff have been in contact with me on a regular basis. They would even call just to see how I was feeling! It is rare to find, not only a good attorney you can trust, but to find one who actually cares about you more that your case is next to impossible. Len Gabbay is that attorney.

Great lawyer with a fantastic team!
Mr. Gabbay and his team were quick to respond to me on any question I had on my ase. He explained everything to me in laws related terms without all the steps to be taken. He never made promises he couldn't keep. He guided me through the whole case and procedures related to a car accident case which I was a victim. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Leonard Gabbay and his great team.

The best law firm in Austin!
I would highly recommend Leonard Gabbay to anyone. I was in a car accident where I was rear ended. It caused whip lash and I was in a lot of pain. Not to mention that I was having to deal with all the trouble of getting my car fixed and dealing with insurance people. I was overwhelmed until I went to Mr. Gabbay's office. From the moment I started working with them I received the care and concern I did not get from insurance companies. Tiffany would call and ask if I was feeling better and always offered her help consistently through the whole settlement. Denise kept me informed of the offers and put together a great demand letter for me. Leonard worked really hard and got a fantastic settlement for me. Everyone at this firm was so kind,caring and involved. I'm so glad that I chose this law firm. I fully believe this was the very best team to have on my side and I'm extremely happy with the service and results that I received.

Mr Gabbay
Mr. Gabbay and his amazing team (kudos to Tiffany in particular) are straight shooters, dedicated, professional and most of all decent people. They work hard and they know their profession well. They will fight a good clean fight and give it to you straight. I had a great experience and would recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer in his field. He delivered exactly what he said he would.

Len Gabbay
Len Gabbay is fantastic! He provides the utmost level of professionalism and class to every interaction. He has helped myself and my mother on a variety of topics on several occasions. He is highly intelligent, very respected in the community, trustworthy, and his team is always on top of things and quick to respond to any question. They even have a section on their website where you can e-mail them and they have such a fast turn-around time. He is a life-saver and my family couldn't have survived without him and everything he's helped us with. You'd be doing yourself an injustice not to work with him. He is the best and his team is top notch! :)

Excellent Austin personal injury attorney
Mr. Gabbay helped us when our 3 year old son was bitten by a dog. He was very familiar with the type of case and has good relationships with the insurance companies and other experts that were consulted in the case. Mr. Gabbay and his associates made the process very easy on us and we received a fair outcome to the case. He has built a good reputation in Austin for being an honest attorney which helps get cases resolved quickly and fairly.

Excellent lawyer with an excellent, friendly office staff
Mr. Gabbay and his well-organized team worked tirelessly on my case, which spanned a longer time than I'm sure they originally anticipated. They kept me informed and up-to-date on the facts at all times, including efficiently explaining processes that weren't familiar to me.

Highly recommended attorney
Mr. Gabbay helped me in a terrible situation where I was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. Not only is he an excellent attorney, he is also very forthright with his clients. I needed his help with some legal matters and he put in 100% of his knowledge and ability toward getting a good outcome for me. He's a good man and a great attorney. Highly recommended!

Leonard Gabbay had me at hello.
You can't go wrong with Len Gabbay and his law office. Len Gabbay is the nicest guy, and a GREAT lawyer too. I had a very complicated accident case that he was handling. This was hardly a connect the dots case. With Mr. Gabbay's brilliance and creativity, he hit a home run for me. He was honest with me every step of the way and always took time out to answers my questions, and I had many. The complexity of my case was very frustrating to me, especially with my medical bills and the health insurance wanting to put a lien on my recovery. Mr. Gabbay took care of those insurance people. Mr. Gabbay took the time to make sure I understood everything that was going on. If Mr. Gabbay was unavailable, his rockin' staff Tiffany and Denise were always there to take care of me. They took the time to get to know me and new me by name once they heard my voice on the phone. I felt valued by Mr. Gabbay and his staff. That is a rare thing these days. If you need help and are feeling overwhelmed by your choices of attorneys I don't think Mr. Gabbay would let you down.

Mr. Gabbay - Diplomacy & Tact
Mr. Gabbay developed a strategy for my case quickly and efficiently .He went beyond the call of duty by taking a sincere interest in my immediate and long term well being. Mr. Gabbay handled everything while keeping me informed. His staff walked me through every aspect of my case as it progressed. Mr Gabbay's staff made me feel comfortable and always promptly responded to my questions. I could really tell that the firm cared deeply about my case. My case had the positive outcome that I was hoping for, and I would not have been able to achieve this outcome on my own without Mr Gabbay and his amazing staff.
