Tom Gallagher Esq.Avvo - Rate your Lawyer. Get Free Legal Advice.

Before founding the practice as a solo practitioner in 2008, Mr. Gallagher was an associate with Barton H. Hegeler, APLC, working in the insurance defense industry on medical malpractice claims. In this capacity Mr. Gallagher gained perspective on the defensive side of law practice, working with a great team of attorneys before venturing onto his own practice.

Mr. Gallagher then partnered with Troy Krich, Esq. and Melissa Bobrow, Esq. to form Gallagher, Krich & Bobrow, APC. The firm focuses on business & contract law and general civil litigation, especially in the area of business litigation, breach of contract, corporate dissolution and real estate litigation. The firm enjoys a clientele of small local business owners, franchisees, and individuals involved in civil disputes (both plaintiffs and defendants). In addition, the firm has partnered with local counsel in the areas of bankruptcy, criminal law and family law to provide referrals to our existing clients. Clients can expect personal interaction with each of the attorneys, rather than paralegals or secretaries.

In some circumstances, our attorneys meet clients at their business or home address to alleviate stress on busy or incapacitated individuals. Mr. Gallagher has brought six figure awards and defended frivolous cases to dismissal. We value our clients’ trust in our services and look forward to speaking to you about your particular needs.

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.
