About Us

The Gibbs Law Firm, APC was founded in 1974 by Gerald R Gibbs in San Clemente, California. Today it remains one of the oldest firms in south Orange County focused on Estate Planning, Real Estate, Bankruptcy and Business Law. From day one, The Gibbs Law Firm, APC has been dedicated to providing its clients with the highest level of professional service, to upholding the dignity of the legal profession and to serving the local communities through on-going participation in charitable organizations. The firm’s commitment to the local South Orange County community includes representation and financial support of many nonprofit entities including Laura’s House, Mary Erickson Community Housing Foundation, The Ocean Festival, Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens, the San Clemente Chamber of Commerce, the San Clemente Downtown Businessman’s Association and many more.

During the past 41 years, the firm has developed a unique approach to the delivery of legal services. While many firms have attempted to be a “one-stop shop” for all legal needs, The Gibbs Law Firm, APC remains focused on its core practice which includes Estate Planning, Real Estate Transactional, Bankruptcy and Business law. Rather than delegating services out, the firm’s attorneys remain hands-on with their clients and cases – bucking the trend towards use of non-attorneys for critical case management and processing. Additionally, through their active membership in organizations such as the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys (AAEPA)National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), Orange County Bar Association (OCBA), Orange County and Inland Empire Bankruptcy Forums (OCBF & IEBF), the attorneys and staff of The Gibbs Law Firm, APC remain on the cutting edge of the legal services industry.

With an emphasis on Estate Planning, Real Estate, Bankruptcy and Business Law, we strive to establish lifetime relationships with our clients, providing legal services to individuals and businesses.
