Mr. Donald Gallick has been my lawyer since 2005. He first helped me with a DUI case that provided the facts to a judge to get rid of many unnecessary additional charges. Donald took my case seriously and handled it professionally and quickly. He made himself available when I had questions that even extended beyond our current case. His time is very valuable and he always has many clients at once but he made me feel like I was his only client when we worked together.
I recently used Mr. Gallick's services again to seal old, and what ought to be closed, cases. Even when cases take some time he is great at keeping up via email, or text, to keep me informed of any updates.
I highly recommend Donald to ANYONE who needs criminal, defense, and all other cases relative to his work. He knows the laws, and is able to quickly solve many exhausting cases.
I have worked with Donald on an appeal for a 13 year sentence. He was able to get it down to 10, so far, and is continuing work for me. The first time I met with Donald, He was very honest and up front about any questions I had. I could tell he was very knowledgable and was willing to take on a case that he knew he could fix. Needless to say, he is a good lawyer who will be honest with you on any case you have. He is willing to keep you informed and work with you closely for the best outcome. I would highly recommend Donald to anyone who is looking for good, sound legal advice.
When I needed help with an issue at work he gave me the information I needed to hear, highly recommended!
Mr. , I meant no offense. Just overloaded last week. I'm still interested in investigating your case. Did you find out if it was sealed or not
Donald Gallick, Esq.
I am not sure at this point, I mean he has taken his time and we have been corresponding since the second week of march or so via email.
I took out names but other than that march 25th is the last I've heard from him. That is the email from him pasted it at the beginning of this review and I for some intangible reason I still want him as my atty. I guess he seems like a fighter to me and that's what I want.
this was my reply to him:
Dear Donald Gallick, Esq.
Thanks Don for replying, it means a lot to me.
But no I didn't find anything out. I wasn't sure what to do and I was very sick last week.
Should I call the public defender that handled my case? I don't want to spill the beans and I'm not entirely sure if I can trust her. I mean I think she meant well but it's either ineptness or just more concerned about keeping on the good side of the Court\Judge.
I did file a grievance on her and was in the process of filing one on Judge when I was released.
I just found an activity report for the month of June 2012. It doesn't appear to be much help.It's 158k in size. Let me know if you want me to send it to you ok?
Thank you so much for hanging in there with me.
I know giving an all excellent review at this point doesn't seem earned but I have a gut feeling that once I get this guy in my corner, they will be!
Donald Gallick took on my case:
It was a writ of mandamus for public records under Ohio's Public Records Act. Holding districts accountable for public records is needed in many States this keeps corruption out and I am very thankful for everything Donald did he is truly a GREAT lawyer.
First, I highly reccomend Attorney Gallick. Although he assisted me with a speeding ticket I know that he is well versed in many different types of law. He is a very genuine person who does a wonderful job.
I recently received a speeding ticket out of town, and as this one was not my first one I thought it might be worth my time to attempt to do something about it. I spoke with Mr. Gallick and he was able to inform me of some options. He kept in contact and myself well informed throughout the entire process. In the end he was able to get my ticket reduced to a zero point offense with a modest fine, without ever having to take the time to travel 3 hours to appear in court. I never thought that would be possible. Thanks Donald!
Mr. Gallick was very precise and told me exactly what action to take. I trust his expertise.
I retained Mr. Gallick to represent me in municipal court. His understanding of the law and legal practices is clearly more superior than the opposition. I was very pleased with my investment.
Donald was extremely helpful while helping me through a very difficult case. He is an excellent lawyer who thinks outside the box and helped me to reduce more than 4 felonies to minor misdemeanors. My record is in good standings and has made me able to find jobs with no problems. Mr. Gallick was always able to be reached via phone or email and always kept me up to date on what path he was going to take next with the case. He listened to me, and was honest back with what he thought would happen and how he could help. I have recommended Donald to many friends who have dealt with anything from DUI's to Civil Disputes. He gets the job done and is affordable. I not only love him as an attorney but he is just a good guy, which is hard to find with lawyers.
My review for Mr. Gallick, he has been the Johnnie Cochran of my life, and that's a great thing!!! Not only has he been my lawyer ,but he has became a friend as well. I was lucky to have met him down through the years facing the terrible circumstances that life has thrown towards me. His emails are timely in circumstances, and he has never let me down in court. Mr. Gallick has helped me with a variety of legal issues other than those mentioned above. I must say that he's a busy guy,and he's down to earth with a personality to match ,he may seem busy at times in this technology age, but be patient, you won't regret your decision.
