We received a letter from an attorney representing an ex employee from years ago. This letter couldn’t have come at a worse time for our family. Although the ex-employee had no substance in their case and this was mostly a nuisance, we felt very vulnerable and unprepared. I reached out to a few lawyers for a quote and their retainer fees alone were deal breakers. When I reached Thomas Gallagher, he approached my case from a completely different angle and walked me through the many small steps we would take to get through this issue. Within the first conversation I felt like I had a plan of attack, an attorney I could trust, and that our family was protected. Our case ended up never going to court. In fact, Thomas was able to resolve the entire issue within a week. I am extremely happy with the results from this potential lawsuit, but even happier knowing my family and business is now protected by a lawyer than can get the job done.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Johnny Nitti helped us with our estate plan. He was very meticulous while drafting the plan and spent enough time to explain the details to us. He filed the deed with county recorder and paid for the fees himself. Overall, Johnny did a great job and we definitely plan to work with him in the future for any updates to our EP.
