    "Speak softly and carry a big stick"

    If you are looking for an attorney that can negotiate in a soft, peaceful and knowledgeable manner while simultaneously exuding the kind of strength that reveals he will not back down from a fight, then John Gallagher is the attorney for you. Since this was my first time experiencing anything like this, I was filled with questions, fear and anxiety. Before finding John, I sought counsel from several other attorneys that actually made me feel worse. Right from the start, John won me over with his charismatic, take charge personality. He is a true professional that cares about his clients and is willing to go the extra mile. I highly recommend John.

    I recommend John Gallagher!

    John Gallagher recently represented me after being let go from my job after 13 years without any warning. John was super knowledgeable in employment law (you would be surprised about the things we do not know), he was very professional, caring and worked very hard to negotiate a good settlement for me and my family. John Gallagher is definitely the best in the business and I will recommend him to all my friends and family members!!!

    Nobody better in Employment Law issues

    John helped me fight a federal non-compete lawsuit in Ohio for 4 years. It was very complicated. A friend and I were sued by the very large company that once employed us, and John came up with a great strategy. We eventually reached a fair settlement, and then won cases filed by the company that hired us both in Ohio and New Jersey (they did not support us in the lawsuit, and turned against us instead). John always kept us up to date, treated us fairly from a fee perspective, and won using a great strategy. I would highly recommend John to anyone with a non-compete issue. He is straightforward, smart and creative – and kept us sane during a very hard time.

    The Worst Attorney!

    He signed a contract to help me with my employment matter, cashed my check, and never helped! He missed the deadlines to file an appeal with unemployment and never filed the lawsuit he stated he was filing.

    John A. Gallagher’s response: “I am now taking this up with Avvo corporate. I believe it is false in whole or in part. Regrettably, the person who submitted this has refused my request through Avvo to address/resolve the situation. I help hundreds of people per year; I regret whatever experience this person had, but unless he/she contacts me, I cannot address/fix it. Most people who call me are very distressed; I get that, but I believe doing something like this is wrong. I have a positive reputation within the industry, and almost all of my reviews are very good. For now, I have to live with this review....”

    Excellent representation!

    Mr. Gallagher represented me in a case involving a non-compete/non-solicitation agreement. He kept me informed of each development in my case, he set reasonable expectations as to what I could expect, and he represented my interests aggressively. Ultimately the matter was settled and the outcome exceeded my original expectations. I would recommend Mr. Gallagher very highly to anyone looking for legal representation in employment law.

    Gallagher review

    John was clearly an asset who did a great job for me and handled my case well. He came up with an out of the box approach. He did excellent research on the issue at hand . He handled the opposition well. I am very happy with his knowledge of the law his preparation and his work ethic. He handled himself professionally with the court and the oppositions' legal team.

    Great lawyer - Wrong Termination case

    Mr. Gallagher represented my case on a wrong termination. He was tremendous from the start and always made sure I knew the process. He always gave me good advice on how to handle my case. He has tough negotiating and strategic skills. With John’s help, I won the case before the trial. John is smart, confident and extremely knowledgeable lawyer. He knows what he is doing. He is honest and reasonable. I would recommend Mr. Gallagher to anyone in need of legal advice or help!!!

    Not someone I would recommend

    I was incredibly disappointed in my experience with John Gallagher and his firm. In the beginning John was going to be a crusader for my cause, on principle! (and of course for compensation, let's be realistic) However, once the resistance came from the other party, the crusader spirit quickly waned as John realized the case wasn't going to make him "rich." I thought John was knowledgable but I found his style less then professional and basically the opposing lawyers shut down and refused to deal with him because of his incredibly abrasive and argumentative style. I think part of lawyering is knowing your opposition. For John, I think it's tact be damned I'm going to steam roll through everyone and then blame them for being uncooperative retroactively. Unfortunately, in my case, that turned out to be a lousy strategy. The other "reviews" of John are very good but we all know the online review system is fraught with bogus reviewers. Who knows, maybe he is competent, I just didn't see it....

    John A. Gallagher’s response: “Well, I am sad to see this. Here is my response. First, I do not crusade on principle, ever. Second, I often consider taking cases subject to learning additional information from the employer. Sometimes, things don't "check out." Third, my style is assertive, honest and straightforward. The author of this comment most assuredly was not a party to any conversations I had with opposing counsel. In fact, my approach with other lawyers is almost always to "catch bees with honey.". Four, I am not a "blamer." Finally, it seems likely that this is a matter I did not put in suit, and the client may have been disappointed in my decision in this regard. I try my best, and sometimes I "fail," and I guess I did here....”
