Gabrielle Vidal, co-chair of Loeb’s Trust & Estate Litigation practice, is profiled in an article published in the 2022 Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine discussing her practice and her journey to becoming a trust and estate litigator. Her roster of clients have included public figures and celebrities, including Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and Carol Burnett.
“They are people who are going through a really hard time, and their privacy is very important,” Gabrielle told Super Lawyers. “I try very hard to make sure that people feel they have a protected space in which to step through whatever family issue is being litigated in the courts. … I like to hold that for my clients as kind of sacred ground.”
Gabrielle noted that the key to her practice is building strong relationships with her clients.
“It’s so important to me to have relationships that are close with the clients and to also have a very respectful relationship with opposing counsel and co-counsel whenever possible. It’s a small community—a semi-small community, I would say—of people who handle the high-net-worth trust and estate litigations in Los Angeles. I’ve been fortunate to call many of them friends.”
