Gary Tabat is a scam artist. I was a client and was treated poorly. He over bills and also made sexual references to me often which made me feel very uncomfortable some of which are on tape. All of the negative reviews you read below are true. Dont believe the positive ones. Gary Tabat is one of the worst kinds out there. Please do yourself a favor and stay far away from this practice.

In what I consider the worst time of my life, Gary helped me tremendously. He is smart, kind, and fair in his bills.
Like the other reviewer, he always returned my phone calls. My divorce was very prolonged, but it was mostly because Gary was not my first lawyer. I should of used him from the beginning.
I was very happy with Gary and have recommended many people to him. I have never heard a single complaint.

It was a disaster from the start. It took me over 3.5 years to be final and cost me the equivalent of a college education. The deal that was in place at mediation was the best deal I would have ever seen. He is not sharp, focused or available. He is semi-retired and will do you a disservice. There are so many other lawyers out there, do yourself a tremendous favor and go and find another one.

Gary Tabat's goal is to increase his income but not to get you divorced. It will drag on. He also over bills. I was assigned to one of his staff attorneys at the beginning. She constantly needed his help and even his presence in court. At first they wouldn't charge me for 2 attorneys but later they started double billing. He even wrote to me saying he wanted to charge me for the law secretary's time. In retrospect I see that I would have been a lot better off settling at the beginning, because after 100,000 of fees I was told I couldn't afford a trial and I would be a fool not to settle. So what was the point of all the discovery etc. if it wasn't going to be used at trial? I was billed for every second of every phone call and even to have a letter forwarded to me. If I had gotten a fair settlement it would have been worth it. But after 4 1/2 years of legal bills the only winner was Gary Tabat. My ex had a MUCH better attorney.
