About Us

Individualized Attention

The Firm was founded by Attorney Gabriel M. de las Salas who has been practicing law since 2010. GMS Law represents property owners who have suffered damage to their homes and businesses. We also handle real estate closings and construction disputes. Our primary goal is to provide our clients with zealous representation to ensure they achieve the results and compensation they deserve. As a boutique practice, GMS Law prides itself on providing clients with individualized attention and responsive service. We operate as a quality, not a quantity, practice and limit the number of cases we take on to ensure we provide the most effective representation possible.

No Recovery, No Fee

In many property damage and construction defect claims, we work on a contingency fee. In other words, you are only required to pay attorney’s fees and costs if we make a recovery. We can advance costs on your behalf, and you are not required to pay any of those costs up front. If no recovery is made, then you do not owe us any money whatsoever.

In some cases against your own insurance company, we may also be able to recover attorney’s fees and costs directly from the insurance company. Simply stated, the insurance company would be required to pay us, and we would not be charging you a percentage of the recovery. This helps ensure that monies that are recovered for repairs can go toward repairs rather than paying legal fees.

Each case is unique. To better understand attorney’s fees, please contact us for a free consultation.

Closing Costs

Closing costs must be considered when buying or selling real estate and are often a matter left up to negotiation. Unless there is an agreement stating otherwise, the forms of real estate contracts used in Florida come with preset allocations of closing costs.

The cost of title insurance varies depending on the purchase price of the property. Rates are set by the State of Florida. It is a one-time charge, paid at closing.
