Hi, I'm Gabe!

I’ve been involved in Mock Trial for over six years. As a competitor, my high school team recorded a 32-4 record winning 85% of our ballots.


In May of 2016, my team won the National High School Mock Trial Tournament in Boise, Idaho. Even after graduation, I have stayed involved in Mock Trial at both the middle school and high school level providing day long clinics,  as well as season long consulting/coaching services.


After seeing the success of those using my services, I decided to try and help even more people! I have taken what I know and built two separate courses, and have an informational blog that is updated weekly to share the latest in Mock Trial tips and tricks!


My areas of expertise include: 

  • Understanding Case Law

  • Rules of Evidence

  • Witness Development

  • Trial Procedure

  • Objections

  • Preparing Case Materials

  • Case Editing

  • Cross Examination

  • Direct Examination

  • Opening Statements

  • Closing Arguments

  • Pre-Trial Proceedings​


  • As a student, his dedication to learning was unparalleled... If you are interested in mock trial, Gabe will instruct and inspire you to exceed your expectations. His passion and knowledge will transform you into a person ready to engage and persuade the world around you.

  • Gabe is a unique individual, who combines his exceptional natural ability with a willingness and eagerness to learn and share trial understanding. He possesses great strength of character allied with a wonderful sense of humor and a humble heart. I enjoyed the opportunity to work under Gabe.

  • Over his career, I watched Gabe become the natural leader of our team. Nobody else brought the same sort of focus and dedication we needed....As a coach, Gabe made an effort to teach the skills needed for students to prepare their content and perform competently during a round. He brought a wealth of experience to the table from the regional, state, and national level. Gabe’s understanding of Mock Trial shows clearly in his ability to teach and develop those skills in those he teaches.

    Gabe's Former Team Mate

  • Gabe excelled at working with teams to teach the discipline of mock trial advocacy, develop successful case theories, and work through the many administrative tasks required to take a team to trial. More importantly, Gabe’s traits of reliability, trustworthiness, and respect make him someone who is easy to work with.
