About Us

Attorneys Catherine A. Gale and Thérèse Wiley Dancks both had experience working in large litigation firms prior to establishing Gale & Dancks in 1997. Recognizing that their clients were looking for efficiency and value as well as quality services, Gale & Dancks was established so that their clients’ unique interests could better be served in a small firm environment. While maintaining the expertise and resources of a large firm, Gale & Dancks is able to provide individualized services to its clients in a small office setting. With a combined litigation and trial experience of over 75 years, Gale & Dancks, LLC has found that its talents are best directed at defending the interests of professionals and businesses in professional malpractice, personal injury, products liability and employment claims.

Catherine A. Gale, the founder of Gale & Dancks, LLC, is a well-seasoned trial attorney who is a member of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers. She focuses her skills on representing health care providers in malpractice litigation, licensure issues, risk management and insurance coverage questions.

Thérèse Wiley Dancks, also a trial attorney, has represented a variety of national insurance companies and their insureds in personal injury matters including medical malpractice and toxic tort claims. In addition, she represents diverse professionals in business and employment matters.
