Introduced into the legal field at a young age through his mom who worked at the district attorney’s office in Clayton County, Gaeta knew that he wanted to be an attorney by the time he was in high school.
“I wanted justice for the victims,” says Gaeta, who has spent the last 10 years seeking justice for defendants throughout Georgia after serving as a prosecutor in Clayton County.
Aside from his extensive experience working as a personal injury and criminal defense attorney, Gaeta also has ample experience on the dance floor. Despite spending some time practicing wrestling during high school, this was not the sport he practiced over the years. During law school, dance became therapy for Gaeta. Falling in love with the feeling dancing and music gave him, Gaeta continued to work and get better at the art. Latin dancing has become a big part of him. Combining his love for Latin dancing with his passion for traveling, Gaeta has traveled around the world attending dance conventions in different parts of the world, including Serbia, Bosnia, Russia, and Lebanon. For Gaeta, nothing beats Salsa music as the top choice to dance to, especially the rhythms by the iconic Mark Anthony.
Before law school, Gaeta was awarded two scholarships and had the opportunity to study abroad in Argentina. During his time there, he traveled around South America and became fascinated with the ability to see and experience other cultures. Since then, Gaeta has traveled to 23 countries. At the end of 2021, Gaeta will travel to London with his mother before closing the year with a trip to Dubai.
Gaeta has always been active through nonprofit organizations. He has acted as a leader for various student organizations through his studies, including Latin Law Student Association and the Student Bar Association. His pro bono work, including with the Latin American Association, helps people fight injustices, and provide quality legal help to underserved communities. Gaeta believes that everyone deserves a second opportunity. He understands that one bad decision can have a tremendous impact on someone’s life, so he seeks to find the best outcome for his clients to give them a second chance at making things right. Gaeta has always strived to be a genuine person, and never compromise his beliefs for anything.
Gaeta is an active member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA) and Georgia Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (GACDL) where he has tutored continuing legal education for other attorneys. He is barred in state courts around Georgia, in the Georgia Appeals Court, Supreme Court of Georgia, and Federal District Courts of North Georgia and Middle Georgia.
