Gale & Vallance Attorneys at Law

Mat and I met while we were working as young trial lawyers for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office in 1983. Over the next four years, we became good friends and experienced lawyers. We decided that we could fill a need in Orange County California for young trial lawyers who worked aggressively for their clients at a fair rate in a client concentric manner.

To us, this meant that we would always advise our clients on the options that were best for them. We always thought that our clients were intelligent and if provided with all of the information and the various options that were available to them, they would make the best decisions for themselves. In our opinion, this is what the practice of law is all about. We are trusted advisors.

Our philosophy of always looking out for the best interest of our clients and providing them with all of the potential options that were available in a particular situation brought us a lot of success. Our 30-year practice was built upon referrals of new clients from satisfied former clients.

Our legal practice was initially focused on the defense of criminal matters solely. With the growth of our practice and clientele, our clients repeatedly asked us to assist them in a variety of other legal matters. Over the years, we have expanded our practice from criminal defense.

Our practice now focuses on four areas of the law: criminal defense, personal injury, estate planning, and all matters related to business.

Our firm currently consists of two lawyers with more than 30 years of legal experience each. We have a dedicated support team made up of paralegals and administrative assistants. Though over the years we have had a larger firm with many more lawyers and assistants, today’s legal clients require small, efficient law firms made up of highly experienced attorneys who can provide the right advice at the right time for the right money.

We would love the opportunity to become your trusted advisors.
