Former longtime La Cañadan Stephen Galton, a well-known Los Angeles attorney, was recently honored at a retirement dinner filled with stories and reminiscences at Parkway Grill in Pasadena.
The dinner was hosted by the Los Angeles law firm of Burke, Williams & Sorensen, where Galton spent the last three years of his 40-year legal career. Galton's wife of 46 years, Grace, and two of his children, Brad and Lissy, were present.
Before joining Burke, Williams & Sorensen, Galton had been a senior partner of Galton & Helm, a business litigation law firm he founded in 1985 with Hugh Helm and Michael Bell. Galton and Helm had both graduated from the USC Law School in 1969, where both also received their undergraduate degrees. In 2007, the firm of Galton & Helm merged with Burke, Williams & Sorensen.
