Gayle Eskridge

About Me

I own a law firm dedicated to civil litigation, with emphases in real estate, business, and employment litigation.  I have experience with jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, mediations, and administrative hearings.  Additionally, I am an experienced, professional mediator.  I have conducted approximately 150 mediations, including mediations in the following areas: employment, real property, business, toxic torts, and lemon law.


I have held an AV ratings from Martindale-Hubbell every year since 2001.  An AV rating identifies a lawyer or firm with very high to preeminent legal ability.  The AV rating is a reflection of expertise, experience, integrity and overall professional excellence.  I have also been designated a California Super Lawyer for 2012, 2013 and 2014, and a Top Attorney in Southern California by Los Angeles Magazine.


Our attorneys and staff of ESKRIDGE LAW are committed to providing excellent legal representation. The firm prides itself on strong communications with its clients. Because of its smaller size, ESKRIDGE LAW is able to maintain individualized relationships with all its clients and to respond very quickly to client needs. The attorneys and staff at ESKRIDGE LAW are available to answer clients' questions and discuss their needs and concerns on a daily basis.  Our clients know the status of their cases at all times.


ESKRIDGE LAW has been in existence in Torrance since 1997 and I have been practicing law since 1988.
