Gaw Van Male - Experienced Estate Planning and Business Law Attorneys

 Our Values

Personal Service

To us, providing personal service starts with building a relationship. We know this takes time so, from the moment a client walks through our door, we make it a priority to establish a personal connection based on trust.

We want to know your story and what’s most important to you. So, we listen when you talk. We make it a point to learn about you, your needs, and desires. Only then can we develop a legal strategy that will help you achieve your goals—whatever they may be.

We know that trust only comes with confidence. Because we are always responsive and keyed into your objectives (and we challenge you to think about things you’ve never thought of before) you’ll be convinced early on that we possess the integrity and ability to serve as your legal advisor.

Friendly & Approachable

We take practicing law very seriously. And, we’re very good at what we do. We also realize that our clients don’t care what we know until they know we care. So, we make it a point to connect with our clients on a personal level from the moment they step through our doors.

Most of us save our suits for the courtroom and dress casually to create an environment where our clients can feel comfortable and be themselves. This creates an atmosphere to foster open communication, which we find helps our clients feel integrated into the GVM family.

We also want our clients to know that we are real people—not just a group of lawyers. When we’re not in the office, you can find us spending time with our families, traveling the world, coaching little league, volunteering, cooking, gardening, and – of course – enjoying (and sometimes making) wine from the beautiful Napa Valley.

Community Involvement 

 has a true and long-standing commitment to the communities we serve. We are consistently relied upon by organizations to serve as their leaders, and are honored to do so. Volunteering is our privilege and we do it because we’re wholly invested in our communities. We provide support both financially and with our time without expectation of getting anything in return.

GVM is a full service local law firm with expertise in: wealth preservation and estate planning, succession planning, business law (planning, entity formation, sales, mergers and acquisitions, financing, stock transactions) real estate law (leasing, purchases and sales, land use, water use, construction) trademarks and patents, employment law and commercial litigation.

We intensively research site culture and history to produce architecture that exists in harmony with its natural surroundings and the community it impacts. Our projects respond to local climate and relate well to their environment through the use of regional materials.  We explore spatial planning and building design, formulating multiple design solutions through sketches, models and computer modeling.

We believe that sustainability is one of the greatest challenges of our generation. As stewards of the environment, green principles are fundamental to our approach as we seek to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste and create healthy, productive environments.  We further this objective by collaborating with others who demonstrate this same commitment.

Western Health Advantage - A Full-Service Health Plan

Western Health Advantage (WHA) is a full-service health plan developed by NorthBay Healthcare, Mercy Healthcare Sacramento, and the UC Davis Health System. WHA members have access to a network of over 250 primary care physicians and more than 540 specialists within Solano, Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties. This not-for-profit health plan is committed to investing more of the health care premium dollar in patient care. Rates are very competitive.

About Western Health Advantage:

Great Balance of Value and Coverage
As a not-for-profit health plan created by local doctors and their hospitals, Western Health Advantage offers a refreshing alternative to the expensive bureaucracy of national HMOs.

Fifteen years ago, UC Davis Health System, Dignity Health and NorthBay Healthcare System came together to create a health plan to offer clear value in quality care for the people who live and work in Northern California. And this care starts with the exceptional range and reputation of our health care providers.

Access to Quality Doctors and Hospitals

With WHA, you have access to award-winning programs for cancer treatment, a nationally-ranked children's hospital, heart and stroke centers with "Gold Seals of Approval" and top-ranked medical groups. We are here to bring you easier access to care, that's why our members can choose from over 2,800 primary and specialty care providers and 15 hospitals in Northern California.
Sacramento-Solano Area
  • Hill Physicians Medical Group
  • NorthBay Healthcare
  • Mercy/Dignity Health
  • UC Davis Health System
  • Woodland Healthcare/Dignity Health
North Bay Area
  • Healdsburg District Hospital
  • Marin General Hospital
  • Meritage Medical Network
  • Palm Drive Hospital, Sebastopol
  • Sonoma Valley Hospital
  • St. Joseph Health

Choices and Flexibility

Our members have more choices because they aren't locked into one medical group for specialty care.

With our unique Advantage Referral program, you'll have the flexibility to choose from almost any specialist in our entire network, not just within your particular medical group.

All HMOs let you pick a PCP from the groups in its network. The trouble starts when you need a referral to a specialist. You're usually restricted to a specialist who is in the same medical group as your PCP. At Western Health Advantage, we want you to receive the care you need, when you need it.

That kind of choice and flexibility is why more than 92,000 members trust Western Health Advantage for their health coverage.

Personal Customer Service

You'll be supported by a local, personal customer service team dedicated to answering your calls within 30 seconds.

Yes, real people will be with you every step of the way, answering all your questions and taking care of your needs. Don't just take our word for it. The California Office of the Patient Advocate releases an annual Health Care Quality Report Card, assessing California health plans for quality of services. At Western Health Advantage, we are proud of how our members rate our health plan.**

As a member of WHA, you'll have an abundance of resources available to you 24/7 through your customized, secure Personal Access account online at

Day or night, you'll have access to your plan materials, the ability to change your PCP, order/print replacement ID cards and much more.

The Health Plan that Actually Makes People Feel Good

WHA gives our members the added peace-of-mind that comes from travel assistance from Assist America®. Anytime you travel 100 miles or more away from home - even in a foreign country - you are eligible for Assist America's assistance services, such as medical consultation and referrals, care of a minor child, lost luggage or document assistance, and other vital services that may arise while traveling.

Note: As part of your plan, urgent care and emergency care services are covered wherever you are in the world.

Our members have the added benefit of an online wellness program. HealthyroadsTM provides our members with a personalized health assessment, meal/nutrition planner, fitness and wellness trackers, e-coaching, articles and a variety of other tools to help you reach your health goals. In addition to receiving standard advice for medical issues, our members have access to registered nurses - all day, every day - who are ready to answer your specific questions on general health and wellness, including direct referrals to disease management nurses.

Note: Bilingual services are available upon request.

If this sounds like something you'd like in a health plan, give us a call at 888.499.3198.
