Attorney At Law
Born in Romania and immigrating to the US in the early 1990’s, Gabriel graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, with additional focuses on Philosophy and Political Science. He earned his Juris Doctordegree from Drexel University School of Law, during which he earned a clerkship with a criminal department of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, as well as a summer position with the Public Defender’s office of Philadelphia.
Mr. Pene then relocated to San Diego County to begin his legal career following graduation. With a varied and diverse background including experience in civil litigation, immigration and naturalization law, national security law, and some limited criminal representation, he now focuses his practice entirely on Family Law. He uses his diverse experience and background to navigate this dynamic and tumultuous area of law to obtain the best result for clients, both through a collaborative approach when possible and high-conflict litigation when needed.
Outside of active practice, he is an avid traveler and writer, and strives to continue assisting those without access to representation through volunteering with the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program.
