Attorney J. Gabe Talton

Bilingual Personal Injury Attorney Who Perseveres for You

Attorney J. Gabe Talton
919-287-9314

Gabe Talton joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2015, handling personal injury cases. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Talton represented personal injury, workers’ compensation, and employment clients for more than ten years. He also represented numerous Moral Monday cases pro bono. An attorney by day, a detective at heart, Mr. Talton enjoys trying to find that needle in a haystack that can mean the difference in winning a case or losing it.

“What keeps me excited about the practice of law on a daily basis is looking for that unique aspect in each case. Sometimes it is a witness statement the police did not take. Sometimes it’s a medical diagnosis which was underdiagnosed by the doctors. Sometimes it’s a wrinkle in the law the other side missed. What makes my practice engaging is looking for that unique aspect on every case. "

Mr. Talton earned his J.D from the Rutgers School of Law, where he was a Marshal Brennan Fellow. He earned his B.S. from North Carolina State University with a major in History and a minor in Spanish.

"I consider weaving our Spanish-speaking Americans into the fabric of our society to be my life's work. While I minored in Spanish at school, I really learned to speak Spanish waiting tables in college, working with farm workers, and serving as a Miami Public Defender. I always wanted to travel to Latin America. But at some point, I realized that Latin America had traveled to me! I have worked with university-educated professionals who moved to the U.S. to retire with family, and Native Americans from southern Mexico with no formal education. Spanish has opened so many doors for me to see others' life experiences."

Mr. Talton received the North Carolina Lawyers Weekly Emerging Legal Leader award in 2011*, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice Order of Service in 2010 and 2014, and is serving a three-year term as an NCAJ board of governors through 2017.

He is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, North Carolina Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System, North Carolina Bar Association, and North Carolina State Bar.
