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.

Tom Gallagher is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to business law. I reached out to him reguarding the Pandemic and my salon and I’m so glad I did. Many times stress and hard times can fog clarity and he really helped me understand the laws.
Thanks Tom!!!
