| Hired Attorney
The best lawyer ever!!!!
I consulted with numerous attorneys, then I met Gary Tabat and everything changed. I went from feeling scared and unsure to confident and safe. He really listened, cared and took control of what felt so out of control. His kindness is like no other. He was able to answer any and all legal question and did not look at his watch. Once he took over my case, everything felt like it would be ok!! He is brilliant. He has the best memorie and always surprised me how he just knew how to put things in such simple terms that seemed so complex to me. I have referred him to many friends and family and they always are so impressed with him and grateful to me. Like I said, he is the best!!!! Hire him before your x. He’s not just a great lawyer, he’s a wonderful human being. I am forever grateful to him!

The Right Attorney for My Case.
Gary is an excellent divorce attorney and I cannot thank him enough for how well my case was handled. During such a difficult time in my life, the one thing I could count on was the legal team I chose to spear-head my case. The Support Staff in the office are very responsive and helpful as well. Thank you Gary!
