Experience, Integrity, Tenacity and Unparalleled Results in All Areas of Civil Litigation

Hiring an attorney in a civil dispute who isn't experienced in courtroom litigation is like hiring someone to complete the first half of a complex tax return. To effectively resolve your full legal matter, you need someone who can handle all steps of the legal process, including the final and most important step — a jury trial.

At the law firm of Gates, O'Doherty, Gonter & Guy LLP, we have unparalleled experience in litigating cases in court. Our combined experience includes hundreds of trials with approximately 400 taken to verdict. Just as importantly, our verdict success rate is almost 96%.

We can handle almost any type of civil litigation, from comparatively simple property line disputes to medically complex traumatic brain injury cases. Our credentials also include:

  • Membership with the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)
  • The instruction of numerous classes regarding trial litigation, the evaluation of wrongful death claims and the evaluation of traumatic brain injury claims and other catastrophic injuries
  • The highest rating by the rating agency Martindale-Hubbell
  • Designations as Southern California Rising Stars
