A skilled litigator with nearly twenty years of experience in a variety of practice areas, Gabriele Burner Shakeri works closely with her clients to develop legal strategies which advance their personal and professional goals while balancing costs and time.
My strength lies in helping clients achieve their personal and professional goals through a collaborative process wherein we identify issues, brainstorm solutions and tailor strategies which are customized to the client’s specific needs. Part of that process involves the client and I getting to know each other and also discovering commonalities and quirks within ourselves which may be impediments to growth. I think my best work with clients has an element of self-discovery for both the client and me.
