Gaye L. Gould

Our friend and partner Gaye Gould passed away September 5, 2020.

Gaye was a lawyer and partner at Sacks Tierney for decades and was an amazing colleague and friend.

Her practice focused on commercial litigation matters for the construction, healthcare, and insurance industries. She was also a valued member of the firm’s appellate practice.

An Arizona’s Finest Lawyers selectee, Gaye was also named one of “Arizona’s Top Lawyers” by AzBusiness magazine and one of the 2013 Top Rated Lawyers in Commercial Litigation Law by The American Lawyer.

Gaye earned her bachelor's degree with honors at Arizona State University in 1981, and received her law degree with honors from the Arizona State University College of Law in 1986.
