      Ray has dedicated his professional life to protecting the interests of his clients, large and small. He has negotiated numerous win-win deals for clients of all kinds, and has amassed a stunning winning percentage at trial (more than 85% of cases tried to verdict), reflecting not only his skills as a litigator but also his dedication to careful preparation, determination, and judgment about when to compromise. That credibility translates into negotiated results. Ray’s settlement results exceed $100 million. He achieved these results in consumer fraud, legal malpractice, corporate fraud, and other matters. He avoids needless disagreements and the associated expense by being reasonable and likeable. His results and approach are reflected by his clients' loyalty, his many friendships with his former adversaries, and the referrals he regularly receives from both.

      Ray is supported by truly cutting-edge technology (backed by our affiliate Gallo Digital and its software engineering team) and a team of talented and dedicated young lawyers and paralegals. Originally focused solely on representing businesses and executives, Ray now focuses significant effort on representing consumers in class and mass actions alleging large scale fraud, employees, and other victims of large scale wrongdoing. He also continues to handle professional liability cases and to act as outside general counsel to entrepreneurial and middle market businesses.

      Ray is a graduate of Yale University and the UCLA School of Law. He has been listed in Martindale Hubbell's Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers since 1999, and enjoys a "10" rating from AVVO.com. He was repeatedly selected as a "rising star" in Los Angeles Magazine's "Super Lawyers" edition. Ray was originally trained in litigation at, and associated with, Crosby Heafey Roach & May (now Reed Smith).

      Ray is admitted to pratice law in California. He works primarily through Gallo LLC, our Puerto Rico affiliate firm.
