My name is Gabriel Assaad. I'm originally from Rochester, New York and now call the DC area home. After graduating from High School, I wanted to get out of the cold weather so I enrolled at the University of Miami, Florida.
I graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering in 1996 and accepted a position with a consulting firm.
I'd always wanted to go to Law School, so I sent applications to the top 25 Law Schools in the country. I told myself whichever school accepted me first, that's the school I was going to attend.
Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee was the first to accept me, so I packed my bags and moved to Nashville. I received my law degree in 2001 and then accepted a position with Dickstein Shapiro, LLP, a large law firm in Washington, DC.
I focused on Patent Litigation while with Dickstein Shapiro and it's where I had my first taste of litigation.
In 2004, I joined Paulson & Nace, a Washington, DC based Personal Injury Law Firm. I represented clients in personal injury, medical malpractice and product liability matters and found that I enjoyed it immensely.... and was very good at it.
That's when I decided to open my own law firm, and in October 2008, I did just that.
In just a few short years, I've earned a solid reputation as a top-notch personal injury attorney and am known for caring about one thing and one thing only my clients.
If you or a family member has been injured due to the negligence of someone else, I'd like the opportunity to do the same for you. I can be reached at (202) 741-9348. Just give a call and we'll spend time discussing your situation and what options you have. There is no charge for this call and I will not pressure you in any way. I'll simply answer your questions, ask you a few as well, and if I can help, I will offer to do so.
Thank you for stopping by.
