Protecting You & Your Business

Whether your business is a startup or a growing corporation, I help minimize lawsuit exposure, create employee contracts, draft buy-sell agreements, and incorporate your business. After 26 years of experience, I have attained the highest rating for legal skills and ethical conduct from AVVO and Martindale.

I can work with you to avoid costly legal problems through proper planning and successfully litigate business disputes if they do arise. I proudly serve clients throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Pasadena, Ventura County, Orange County, and Long Beach.


The Gentry Difference 

With respect to transactional matters, my experience allows me to perform most matters for a flat rate within a predictable and short period of time. When business owners know the cost up front and know how long it will take to accomplish the tasks it simplifies their decision making. Furthermore, if trial arises, they can rest assured knowing my firm offers distinct advantages. 

"My goal is to win, not to bill. I do everything that is necessary to win and nothing that is not."
Accessibility

Most law firms have a layer of personnel between their attorneys and clients. However, at my firm, when clients have substantive questions, they speak directly with me.

Preparation

When you bring a case to me, I will prepare as if it will be presented to a jury. Since most cases settle, average lawyers never think about trial until it is almost upon them.

Experience

I show the jury how to see our perspective by using audio and visual presentations that help them understand our case. It sounds simple, but it takes years to perfect.

More About My Fees & Services 

While I strive to offer flat fees to those litigation clients who desire it, I always offer flat fees for non-litigation services, such as contract drafting, entity formation, and taxation issues. I also offer free consultations, where I’ll give you an idea of how long your case is going to take and how much it’s going to cost. 

Below, you’ll find a list of my most common areas of practice. If you are currently facing a situation that is not noted, please go ahead and reach out to my firm regardless. This is not an exhaustive list, and I will do my best to assist you in whatever way I can.
