Client Comments

"I've seen Ms. Gallagher in action on several occasions. She is a brilliant trial lawyer. Even her voir dire is masterful; she cleverly elicits the information she needs to select a jury, while naturally engendering the support of potential jury members. Once in trial, she creates a careful record while advancing the case, always mindful of the engagement of the fact finder(s). I'd recommend her to those who believe they may go to trial."
