OUR PHILOSOPHY
MAKES US DIFFERENT

Goyette, Ruano & Thompson (GRT Law) has provided world-class legal services across the state of California. Our firm has a proven track-record of success representing 5,000+ clients on both the defendant and plaintiff sides of a wide range of issues.

 

You never know when a legal situation is going to arise, and in some situations, it may not even be obvious that a legal situation has arisen. Not to mention, a large number of legal matters evolve or advance in scope to cover more than one type of legal discipline, which means that legal specialists need help with those aspects of cases. That’s why people who are dealing with legal matters that are more general in nature need the help of a mid-sized, full-service law firm that can help them through whatever situations they encounter as they pursue a proper resolution.

Labor & Employment Law

Retirement, Health & Disability Matters

Civil Litigation

High-profile Criminal Defense Cases

Business Law Matters

Estate Planning

Personal Injury
