Gabriella graduated cum laude from Hofstra Law School where she served as an Associate Editor on the Hofstra Law Review.
While in law school, Gabriella received the "Best Overall Trial Advocate" award in a trial competition and later served as Manager of Competitions and as Vice President of the law school's trial organization. Gabriella competed in five National interscholastic trial competitions and was named a Semi-Finalist in three: The Peter James Johnson Jr., National Civil Rights Trial Competition, The Capitol City Challenge, and the Texas Young Lawyers Association Trial Competition.
During her second year of law school, Gabriella was asked by the University's Distinguished Professor of Trial Advocacy to research and write several portions of a Civil Rights-grounded Appellate Brief arguing for a reversal by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. The Second Circuit reversed judgment on the issue that Gabriella argued. Upon retrial, the client prevailed.
