Our Story

Gale, Sutow and Associates is a law firm specializing in workers’ compensation advocacy for employers, insurers and third party administrators throughout the State of California. Our mission is to provide the highest quality representation to our clients through innovative, efficient and aggressive handling of cases.

Prior to opening Gale, Sutow and Associates in the summer of 2014, founding partners D. Matthew Gale and Steven H. Sutow collaborated with several clients with regard to establishing best practices and a general litigation strategy for enforcement of Medical Provider Networks in Southern California. Throughout the course of these projects, Mr. Gale and Mr. Sutow came to acknowledge a shared philosophy of minimizing waste and abuse in workers' compensation by not simply defending claims at the pace of the applicant, but driving a case to resolution by settlement or trial.

As a result of this fruitful collaboration, Gale, Sutow and Associates was founded in the summer of 2014 on the concept of obtaining the best possible resolution for its client through pro-active litigation, innovative strategy, and cooperative efforts by an insurer and attorney. In particular, focus is given to ensuring accountability of opposing counsel, effective discovery (including enforcement of a defendants' right to initial med-legal evaluation), management of lien and secondary exposure through assertion of Medical Provider Networks and medical control, and cost-effective settlement of claims.

With over 50 years of combined experience in California workers’ compensation litigation, Gale, Sutow And Associates is ready and able to meet the needs of California insurers. Gale, Sutow and Associates is committed to creating comprehensive and responsive solutions to our Clients' needs, be it complex appellate work or general legal consultation.
