Gabriele Ulbig became an attorney to support employees in their struggles to be treated fairly while making a living for themselves and their families. Before joining HANNON LAW GROUP, Gabi worked for the United Mine Workers of America as a law fellow, advising union officers on employment and labor law issues and representing the union and coal miners before the National Labor Relations Board. Before that, Gabi clerked for the Honorable Judge Maureen M. Lamasney of the Seventh Judicial Circuit of Maryland in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
Gabi graduated cum laude from the Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law. Alongside her legal studies, she gained hands-on experience representing employees through an internship as a Peggy Browning Fellow at the Services Employment International Union (SEIU) and a clerkship with a plaintiff-side employment and a union-side labor law firm. While in law school, Gabi also practiced as a student attorney in the school’s General Practice Clinic and saw the positive impact legal assistance can have on an employee’s life.
Berlin, Germany, is Gabi’s city and country of origin. Gabi studied political science and international relations before immigrating to the United States. Gabi worked as a program director for the German Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Jerusalem, Israel after receiving her master’s degree from the Freie Universitӓt Berlin.
