Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • She fought for me and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best.

    “Wow! Thank you, thank you to Caryl Gabe and her staff. I had a very difficult custody battle with my ex and Caryl was always there for me. Her experience and creativity allowed me to gain full custody of my children. I went to other attorneys who listened to my predicament, and she was the ONLY ONE who said it was doable. She fought for me and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best.”

  • I highly recommend her if you are going through a divorce. She is an expert and extremely professional!!!

    “Thanks for being so amazing! Caryl helped me get out of a terrible marriage. My ex-husband tried to extend the divorce case as long as he could, but Caryl not only helped get me a divorce, she also made sure he paid some of the attorney fees for the delay. I appreciate all your help throughout this tough time. I highly recommend her if you are going through a divorce. She is an expert and extremely professional!!!”
