In a nutshell, EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr Gentry assisted me with my divorce and he was very thorough, honest and extremely helpful. His knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile was truly appreciated. I have known him for almost 8 years and each and every time I needed something he was there. Would I use him again? DEFINITELY!
If you are looking for a GOOD ATTORNEY, this is the man to see. I can't thank him enough for all his advice and assistance and hard work.

Mr. Gentry, Is an Excellent lawyer. He assisted my parents with a dispute with a neighbor. He returned all their calls and emails quickly. He explained all their legal options clearly and they were very happy with their outcome. We will be requesting his assistance in the future if need be.

Galen was my counsel for a case I had to defend myself against a frivolous lawsuit. He was very confident and committed to my legal defense. I felt good knowing that he was fighting for me. Result was outstanding and I would recommend Galen to anyone.

Galen did an amazing job assisting my aunt with her prenuptial agreement and divorce issues. He was able to answer her questions throughout the process and was very assuring. Galen is quite knowledgeable, caring, and accessible - something one does not always find when searching for an attorney. I would recommend him again and again, as I already have to several of my colleagues. Thank you Galen!

Galen clearly outlined an effective strategy and approach to my intellectual property dispute. Responsiveness was critical in my case, and Galen proved to be highly available and quick to address issues as they presented themselves. Galen's efficiency was impressive. I hope I don't have further legal issues, but if I do, I will be calling Galen.

I had very specific questions regarding HR documents that I could not find definite answers for until I spoke with Galen. He handled them very easily and in a professional manner. AAA+++ Thank You

I had a complex situation involving conflict with former business partners at a company I co-founded. Mr. Gentry personally took my calls to answer my questions and had his assistant attorney set up a face-to-face meeting with me to review the evidence I have. After looking over the documents he discussed my options with me and instead of encouraging me to file a lawsuit he gave me his best advice, which is to take no action at this point. I am very impressed by Mr. Gentry's honesty, integrity, and experience in helping clients with business issues. If I set up another business in the future I will definitely want him on my side. I have never written a review for a lawyer but Galen deserves every word of praise I have written.

Galen was informative and considerate, unselfishly giving his time and vast knowledge. We are located out of state and needed lots of information to continue on with our dispute. He was attentive and responded quickly.

I met Mr. Gentry on Dec 2010 for business fraud and breach of contract. I won the case. I did not waste any time since he understood my situation accurately and handled all the work perfectly. I did not have to worry or think twice because he explained the case concisely and honestly. He also considered my finances. He is a perfect defense lawyer.

I contacted Galen with a preliminary question. Galen responded quickly and provided me with solid advice based on preliminary info. Hopefully I wont need his services but know where to go if needed.

Galen is an amazing lawyer!! He is personable, knowledgeable and trustworthy. You know right away he is not out to just bill you as many hours as he can, but he wants to understand your issue and provide you honest feedback regarding your options. He also helps you understand your rights under the law, which was extremely helpful to me because all the different legalities can be very confusing. He guides you through the process and delivers results. He did a wonderful job assisting us and we are very thankful.

I'm always skeptical about finding a new lawyer, or doctor, when I don't have a personal referral. I contacted Galen after seeing his high review status across the web, but was still skeptical. Often reviewers have only nasty things to say, so when I saw all the high praise I wondered if it was real. When I rang, Galen picked up the phone directly, didn't even have to wait for a call back, or go thru a secretary. He was very friendly, patient, and informative. We spoke for nearly 20 minutes without the mention of rates, until I asked. His pricing is competitive and he doesn't demand money up front just to hear your situation. A few days after our phone conversation, we met for over an hour in his office - a large space in Century City- to talk more about me and my partners' business venture and determine whether he was the best suited attorney for us. To make a short story even shorter, we (me and my bus partner) felt at ease with Galen and trusted his advice. We never felt pushed into making a decision - a tactic many lawyers in my past have employed- and we all felt like he truly had our best interests in mind.
I look forward to working with Galen on the startup of our new business venture and implore YOU to add this man to your contact list for any future legal assistance you may need!

I've talked to several lawyers in my day and none have impressed me more than Galen. Extremely knowledgeable, willing to take the personal time to guide you through any questions you have, treats you with respect, and doesn't try to over charge you like most lawyers. Galen's the kind of guy you'd like to share a beer with and at the same time get the job done. Overall, a real stand up lawyer with the knowledge to boot. Hire!

Just walking into Galen's office you can get the feel that he is at the top of the food chain. Sat down, gave a rundown of what I needed. He asked more questions to make sure he knew EXACTLY what I wanted and then formed his battle plan. I felt like he definitely cared to make sure the job was done right and to my full and complete satisfaction (which it was). He kept in good contact with me and let me know each step along the way. The final product was perfect and my situation was settled. You can tell when you meet him that he is a guy that does not over-promise and under-deliver. He will tell you exactly what he can do, and DO IT.
On top of his great original performance he also helped afterward. Something had come up and I emailed to ask Galen if he could advise. He was not being paid for his time but did get back to me with all the info I needed. Not to mention I wrote the email quite late in the evening and got a reply within 30 minutes. THUMBS UP!
Will continue to use him when needed.

HE HAS ALWAYS DONE HIS VERY BEST AND HAS ALWAYS WORKED VERY HARD TO GET THE BEST OUTCOME POSSIBLE FOR ME.

Mr. Gentry met me without charging a consultation fee, which is generous when many attorneys do charge hundreds of dollars. he was informative and concise. Mr. Gentry is definitely an honest attorney, and he advised me without regard to whether or not he would profit.

I responded to Mr Gentry's free consultation service advertised by this website without expecting much. I've called similar service before in the past and they usually either not answer the phone or won't tell you anything useful. I have signed a contract and now have come to a point where I need to take the next step in my life and wasn't even sure if what I'm about to do will be a violation of my contract.
Not only did Mr Gentry returned my call, he asked me to forwarded him my documents (which he read), and call me back the same day with sound advices with all of my options. He didn't even mention about any additional fee for this or that service if I wish to know more (which I fear in the beginning), was very attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. I will definitely go back to seek his services should I have any other legal matters I come across in the future.

I was recently sued for fraud. It was my first experience with a law suit and much of the legal process in general. Galen was a great help. Not only did he make me feel comfortable with the process, he was always available to help me and answer any questions I might have had. I recommend him to every one I know seeking legal advice, and would absolutely use his services again if needed.

I used Galen Gentry for an overtime and wage claim. He did a great job. I was on the job for two years and I was treated very unfairly by old employer. Mr. Gentry listened to my problems during our first meeting. He always kept me informed. He answered my legal questions and his office sent me monthly case updates. When I had questions about little things I talked to his staff. They were nice. I felt like they cared about my case. I got a great result. My case settled before trial and my old company paid me twice my earned wages: $120,000.

Galen was referred by a lawyer friend at one of the big firms downtown as the "best litigator" he knew. I never used Galen as a trial lawyer but did use him on some "run of the mill" stuff involving a corrupt partner. He was efficient and enjoyable to strategize with as we prepared our responses. Highly recommend him.

Galen provides personal services and promptly answers all emails & telephone calls. He explains everything in terms you can understand and walks you through the entire process. He is professional, knowledgeable, sincere and understands how emotional and stressful the legal process can be.
