Los Angeles Divorce Law Firm
Galen Gentry, Principal
I have practiced law for over 22 years. I have the highest rating for legal skill and ethical conduct from the two most popular attorney rating sites–avvo.com and martindale.com. See the ratings from avvo here and from martindale here. I am the Chairman of the IP Section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association and a Member of the Family Law Section. I ensure that my firm puts our client’s needs first. We do what needs to be done. I am willing to negotiate early when I think it’s in my client’s best interest and I will litigate with all my effort when the situation calls for it. I generally offer opposing counsel an open exchange of information followed by skilled negotiation to obtain a fair result, but if the opposing counsel or spouse tries to cheat I can and will use the law to ensure my client gets a fair deal.
How are we different from our competition?
