Professional Profile

In 2016, Gabe joined Weathington McGrew with extensive litigation and trial experience. For almost a decade, Gabe served as a Deputy District Attorney for the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, where he supervised the Gangs and Drug Unit, as well as the Asset Forfeiture Division. Under his direction and leadership, his Unit secured convictions in 100% of the cases tried under Georgia’s Criminal Street Gang Statute. Prior to serving as a Deputy District Attorney, Gabe worked for the United States Department of Justice as Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) in the Middle District of Tennessee and the Northern District of Georgia. As an AUSA, Gabe successfully prosecuted large-scale drug trafficking organizations with ties to the Mexican Cartel. Gabe also served as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable William J. Haynes, Jr., United States District Court Judge, for the Middle District of Tennessee.

As a senior associate with Weathington McGrew, Gabe’s practice centers around the defense of physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers in cases alleging medical malpractice, wrongful death, and negligent supervision.  In addition to defending medical malpractice cases, Gabe has significant experience litigating general liability claims, including premises, negligent security, and automobile and trucking claims.
