Clients love working with Gabriella because she is warm, knowledgeable, and never leaves her personality at the door. A third-generation Italian-American, Gabriella is sensitive to each client’s immigration concerns and the associated stress of moving to another country. At the end of the day, she believes in treating her clients how she would want her own family to be treated. She makes her clients feel cared for, comforted, and valued. She is also deeply inspired by her clients.
Gabriella joined Berardi Immigration Law in 2014 after working for one of the biggest law firms in town. She was previously a recipient of a prestigious writing fellowship at SUNY Buffalo Law School teaching legal research and writing skills to first-year law students. Gabriella was first exposed to immigration law through an internship with the International Institute of Buffalo, where she aided its legal department with diverse immigration matters.
Gabriella is our resident foodie and people-person. When she isn’t talking about her favorite bread recipe or the new restaurant in town, you can find her striking up a conversation with anyone and everyone. She is also a dedicated mom to little Gemma, whom our office affectionately nicknamed “Meatball”.
