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.

Look no further. I came to Tom Gallagher with what I thought to be a simple contract law breach. It was because of the tenancy and knowledge of the law that Tom brought to the table and is the reason that we prevailed and I was able to recoup the losses I had recognized. I cannot give a higher recommendation for this group. It is not just contract law either. I would recommend this group for any of your potential legal issues. Their excellent knowledge of the law and their skills will help to prevent potential issues. Use them for all your personal or cooperate needs. You will not be disappointed.
