VALERIE GONZALEZ, ESQ

OWNER AND PRINCIPAL ATTORNEY

When I became a single mom, I was a decade into my career as a Human Resources Professional training Executives and protecting Corporations from employee lawsuits. However, my life drastically changed and, like many entrepreneurs, I quickly realized the traditional 9-5 job was not going to work with my newfound responsibilities. I needed a profitable income, yet a flexible lifestyle so I could raise my daughter the way I wanted.

So, I went to law school with this goal in mind. I finished in the top of my class, passed the California Bar Exam on the first attempt, and opened San Gabriel Valley Law, P.C. SGVLAW, as we call it, is a modern law firm protecting Business Owners from devastating, door-closing, employee lawsuits. We combine Human Resources principles with Legal Compliance to offer practical legal strategy in a personal, hands on, tactical approach.

If you are doing business in California, you must have a savvy lawyer advising you. Because it is not a matter of “if” you will get sued, but “when” and how badly. The large corporations have teams of in house legal counsel to protect themselves from bankrupting lawsuits and now, SGVLAW brings the power of excellent in house legal counsel to the average business owner. 

If you are a California business owner without the counsel of a savvy Attorney, you risk losing everything you have worked for in one employee lawsuit. Call us and let’s create your legal strategy and safeguard your business from devastating lawsuit.

We look forward to meeting you!
