I hired this attorney and all that was done on my case was "wait for your hearing date". He did nothing to notify the judge that time was of the essence and in the meantime his staff was billing me beyond belief. So much that now I may also need a bankruptcy attorney on top of a family attorney. Nothing was done on my case and he claims to understand "Father's right's" issues. I beg to differ.

I was a client of Mr. Gallagher in a family law case last year. I only spoke to Mr. Gallagher for 20 minutes total; ten minutes at the consultation and ten minutes before court. I called the office and they were unresponsive and Mr. Gallagher never returned my calls. When we went to court Mr. Gallagher forgot my file and was unprepared in front of the judge. I could have done a better job representing myself. Save your money.

I hired Mr. Gallagher to help my Step Son with a Seminole County felony VOP case. He arranged a walk though with the jail and a good bail bondsman. A couple of months later he resolved the violation and most importantly he kept my boy from going back to prison in one hearing. I was not going to hire an attorney for my boy's latest problem, I am very happy with the results for the money we spent. I am sure things didn't work out as well for the other guys with their PD's waiting to see the Judge that afternoon.

Mr. Gallagher has been responsive and effective in representing me on two legal matters: he crafted some fairly complex contracts for my business and protected my company from a legal and liability standpoint while providing outstanding, strategic business advice.
I also called on his firm to represent my interests for my will and estate issue and again, his counsel was straight-forward and spot-on. He asked a lot of questions and helped me think through "unintended consequences" in my will - and frankly, pointed out some great strategies. Another attorney I interviewed was simply filling out a template, but I felt like Mr. Gallagher listened, probed, and made really great recommendations.
Having hired law firms on several occasions for various business and estate issues over the years, I am sensitive to the both the quality of legal representation and the fairness of billing. It's nice to have both with this attorney.

Mr. Gallagher was knowledgeable, professional, informative, responsive, and courteous at all times throughout the time it took for our case to finalize (hopefully, this case has come to fruition)...
Mr. Gallagher kept me informed of all proceedings and dutifully worked through the many challenges brought on by his opposition (opposing member switched lawyers midstream) who misrepresented the truth every chance possible. Mr. Gallagher always kept his cool and professional manner even when dealing with these unscrupulous, unprofessional, and shady characters.
Even though this case has taken six-plus years to get to this point, I believe that Mr. Gallagher and his staff (Wade, Eileen, Tacey, etc.) worked diligently and tirelessly plus was very fair in reference to the amount of money charged.
If I ever need representation of this kind (hopefully NOT) in the future, I would not hesitate to get in touch with this group of outstanding personnel once again.
Best to all and thanks for a job well done!

I hired Mr. Gallagher to represent me during my divorce. The only time I ever met with Mr. Gallagher was during my free consultation and then at mediation, 1 year later! I called his office usually once a week to see what was going on with my case. No one was ever available to talk and I rarely received a return phone call. I was emailed forms that I needed to fill out, which months later, was told that they were the wrong forms and I needed to fill out new ones. I was very upset with Mr. Gallagher and his law firm and feel I could have represented myself better. Complete waste of money and I would not recommend Mr. Gallagher to anyone!

I hired Mr Gallagher to amend a parental agreement. Paper work was not filed on time, if at all. His office staff has shown to be highly unprofessional. There has been no contact on their part to keep me informed on what was happening with my case. I feel as though my case could have been handled a lot better. I am very dissatisfied with how things were handled.

Mr. Gallagher represented me recently in a case where I was asking for custody of my son. I was concerned about my son's welfare and his mother was keeping him from me even though he was getting in trouble at school. Mr. Gallagher did not over charge me and kept costs down while giving excellent representation at the trial. I highly recommend him for his professionalism and knowledge.
