Gabriella joined Mello & Pickering LLP in January 2024. While Gabriella is new to the firm, she has been a practicing attorney for several years.
Gabriella received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, San Diego, where she majored in psychology, and received an honors in clinical psychology. After graduating from UCSD, Gabriella received her law degree from San Francisco School of Law in 2019. She was then admitted to the California State Bar in December 2019, after passing the state bar exam on her first attempt. During her law school education, Gabriella gained extensive experience in family law working for the Legal Aid of Sonoma County, the Family Violence Law Center, and a solo family law practitioner. Gabriella's hard work in law school earned her a place in the top 20% of her class.
Gabriella developed a passion for family law during her final years at UCSD, noting a specific interest in helping individuals cope with and find safety from family violence. However, it was during her course in Family Law at San Francisco School of Law that she determined she would pursue a career in family law. It was during this course that Gabriella found her drive to help families of all sizes and of all walks of life.
When not zealously representing her clients, Gabriella enjoys spending her time with family and friends, painting abstract art, and exploring the Bay Area.
