Practicing law since 1979, Santa Clarita Attorney Gary Symonds is a UCLA graduate who earned his law degree from Loyola Law School.


Upon admission to the California Bar in 1974, Mr. Symonds began his practice by conducting both civil and criminal trials, with a primary focus on criminal defense.  This background has provided Mr. Symonds with the unique benefit of having extensive civil jury experience backing his criminal defense practice.


Since 2000, Mr. Symonds has focused his practice on defending people charged with DUIs, drug crimes, firearms crimes, violent crimes and other criminal offenses.
