When I initially met Jason I thought I was in good hands, he seemed very astute. I was onbviously emotionally distressed, why else would I need an attorney, right? I gave him my defense and evidence of which he "Cherry picked" through as he stated. Because I trusted him ( Never trust a lawyer) I did not bother to review what he submitted. He left out the meat of my case and there was no going backward. He missed the first hearing blaming it on his secretary, leaving me alone to seek a continuation in court without him, then he showed up late on the following hearing. He was unprepared and held a wimpy defense as though he really did not care. Then following the loss he billed me an additional $3200 above the $2,000 retainer. Do not hire him. He is just a salesman and does not care if you win or lose, he cares about how much he can bill you for !

I hired Jason after a good consult. He was knowlegable and had ideas on how to process my case in my kids best interests right from the start. He help me as a Father get and keep 50/50 custody and decison authority of my kids.
Jason is very good at explaining legal lingo and processes in a way a non legal person can understand. He knows his way around the Family law system. He was also straight foward when dealing with me, my Ex's council and the courts. Unlike some Attorney's he did not promote the typical dirty games that can be played in Divorce cases, yet knew how to combat them when the other side tried to play them.
Jason is known and respected by the Judges/Comissioners and other Attorney's in the Kent Reginal Justice center.
Lastly, his rates were very resonable compared to other Attorneys I consulted.
I would recomend Jason's services to anyone going through a Divorce, child custody or other Family law matter.

MR. Gaber was a referral through an agency my work partners with. The consultation was what sold me. My situation and the cause of my divorce wasn't exactly cut and dry, in fact quite the opposite. From the moment I explained my situation I felt confident he could handle it with ease.
What i liked best was not needing any face to face, travel time or appointments. Getting a divorce is a headache enough. Everything was done via email, mail or phone. Very 21 century. My case took a bit of time to finalize, through no fault of Mr. Gaber, but the patience was appreciated.
But I think the best part of hiring him was the honest feedback and advice he offered. It helped guide my case to the best possible conclusion.
A 15 year marriage ended, and that sad but when push comes to shove, you want this guy on your team. Worth every penny!

Hiring Mr. Gaber was a great relief, and one of the best decisions I made after I decided to leave a relationship and provide a better life for my young son. No matter how prepared I thought I was for this process - separation, parenting plan, child support - it was still probably one of the most difficult and painful experiences I have ever had. I am well aware I am not alone, and given what I have heard and seen from others I learned that having a competent advocate who knows every aspect of how family law cases work is crucial.
What Mr. Gaber does that sets him apart from those who just have the knowledge is that he can explain the process in a manner that is so clear and concise, and he follows through on everything - very quickly. Through much of this process there were times I felt rather paralyzed and unable to make decisions, even though I knew what eventually needed to happen. Mr. Gaber spelled out my options, what would likely be the outcome (and what *should* happen, as they are not always the same thing), and he was honest in what the cost of each step would be. There were a couple circumstances where he could have gotten some more work for himself and money out of my by pushing for a contempt motion, but he respected my decision to pick my battles and be conservative with what limited resources I had throughout the process. He let me know there were no guarantees in the outcome, but I felt like I had a major advantage in just having him handle the discussions with my former partner's attorney.
Mr. Gaber was the second lawyer I hired for my case. The lawyer I used to get my case started had the most fantastic paralegal who worked hard and fast to get my declaration done and filed in time to get a restraining order. However, over the next couple months I realized that law firm was VERY expensive and I was not able to communicate with the attorney in a manner that made the process any easier. Mr. Gaber was different. Just before I hired him, he took a moment to review the temporary orders under discussion, and drafted an email addressing a few paragraphs. That email, in one page, had all the information I needed to take a position. It was all in just a few minutes of time, and I had been spending a month (and a lot of money) discussing it with my previous attorney. Mr. Gaber was clearly a better match for me.
I have a very busy and stressful work schedule and I spend a lot of time shuttling a kid around to school, sports, etc. Mr. Gaber was great about keeping me updated via email so I could handle matters outside of my work day and after my kid was in bed. There were a couple times I would have been okay with a phone call when it was something more time sensitive. But the reality is that I was overwhelmed during that time frame and did not always check my email promptly. He made his best efforts to keep me on track.
I would not wish this process on anyone. But if it ever happens I would recommend Mr. Gaber to keep you grounded, informed, and provide reasonable advice.

I was a father of a 2 year old at the time (3 1/2 now) and was battling to get a reasonable amount of time with my daughter. I had an ex who was relentless and threw everything but the kitchen sink at us! Jason Handled my case with professionalism and is unbelievably talented in the court room. I got everything I was hoping to get as far as time with my daughter thanks to Jason's vast and accurate knowledge of the law. I highly recommend his services to anyone going through a family law case.

Jason knows the law and is very smart in coming up with strategies for making it work for you.
Your situation might involve court filings, working with court house personnel -- Jason is a practical lawyer who knows how things work. I was completely confident in his ideas and plans, and he got the results we wanted. When we had questions and "what ifs," he was very helpful.
Our situation involved parenting plans. His approach was not only practical but helpful in coming up with a plan that was easy to work with, with few loose ends and points of friction.

I called Mr. Gaber today in an attempt to retain him. After he so graciously listened to my concerns, he advised that retaining him at this point would be a waste of my money. He explained that I have nothing to worry about in terms of my ex's attorney threatening me. He said that if something gets filed, I can contact him then. I find this extremely interesting. He listened to me and wouldn't take my money. I was willing to borrow money to retain him. I don't know of any other lawyer that would do this. He agreed that I could give him a retainer for any possible incidences, but he was very honest in his responses to me. When something actually transpires, I will be hiring him.

I am a single father that has been in my daughters life from day one, when the mother of my child and I decided to co-parent I was hit with a parenting plan asking for supervised visitation rights as well as she was asking for me to pay 900-1000 a month for one child. I thought I was doomed and that one I would barely ever get to see my kid and two I thought I was going to be broke to where I would not even be able to provide for my myself and more importantly my kid. Luckily I came across Jason Gaber whom I had a meeting with and after hearing what he had to say I decided to hire him on as my attorney. Long story short I have my child 2 days a week and everyother weekend, I do pay child support but it is a fair amount so I am able to still support myself as well as my kid. Jason was ALWAYS very informative and updated me on EVERYTHING that was going on with my case. He would break things down to me and explain them in non legal terms. All in all Jason is a top notch lawyer that will do whatever possible for his client.

I hired Jason Gaber to represent me in a child custody case. He was extremely helpful, kind and courteous. He did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Gaber represented my family in a highly complex, very difficult family and custody matter. He worked closely with us for two years, and we are extremely satisfied with his services. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend Mr. Gaber. I hope I never need the services of an attorney again, but if I do, I will turn to the Gaber Law Firm!
