Accident and Litigation Lawyers
"We Thought We Could Do It Better"
The California civil litigation attorneys of Gates, O'Doherty, Gonter & Guy LLP, founded our firm in 2001. Yet partners, Peter J. Gates, F.X. Sean O'Doherty, K. Robert Gonter, Jr s and Douglas D. Guy have 120 years of litigation experience between them and have worked together since the 1980s.
We worked together at a large Orange County law firm and observed numerous areas where client and legal services could be improved. We decided that we could do it better, and founded our firm.
Since 2001, we have kept our focus where it was before — on bringing vast trial skills to each dispute we handle and on litigating cases in court whenever a jury trial will best serve our clients' interests. Our primary practice areas include:
- Wrongful death
- Car accidents
- Bus and truck accidents
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Construction accidents
- Nursing home negligence and elder abuse
- Business litigation
- Real estate litigation
- Employment litigation
- Probate litigation
- Construction defects
- Consumer warranty products litigation
- Family law
- Litigation against governmental entities
- Toxic torts regarding chemical exposure, environmental law and super fund clean up
