Most Caring Lawyers
Keith Sullivan and his partner James Galleshaw along with their staff were the most caring and kind lawyers I have ever dealt with. They always made sure to answer all of our questions and took a lot of time explaining things and keeping us in the loop. I was extremely satisfied with the settlement they were able to get my husband and I. Great experience overall with Keith, Jay and the firm as a whole.

Keith Sullivan, Solves your Legal Problems
Mr. Keith Sullivan is an excellent attorney . He is very thorough, knowledgeable and is an incredible problem solver! He recently handled a matter for me that would have disrupted my business, but he took over the problem and handled it with incredible care, so I could continue to run my business! Thank you Keith Sullivan!

Best Advocate
I had a bad slip and fall last year, and broke my leg due to the negligence of a poorly managed building . It was a very trying time for my girlfriend and I, with complications arising at every turn. But Keith Sullivan was there from day one. He was a constant and steady advocate, who listened, empathized and then fought with all that he had. He always kept us in the loop with what his office was working on, and every member of his firm was attentive and knowledgeable. I had set a high bar for what I wanted as compensation. I had suffered a great deal and wanted the number to reflect that. Not only did Keith Sullivan deliver my request, but he got over 3 times the amount I expected. Now I am able to start my life over again. I cannot recommend Sullivan and Galleshaw more highly. They are the absolute best.

Personal Injury Client Review
I am an attorney of over 20 years. Keith was recommended to me by a colleague. He exceeded all my expectations relative to my personal injury case. He is the ultimate proffesional, as is his staff. He involves you in his planning and strategizing. The outcome exceeded my expectations as well. Always keeps you informed and does not hesitate to bring in other lawyers with certain areas of expertise. I highly recommend him. Of course, it goes without saying, Gina is the best.

Excellent, caring & aggressive!!!
I recently used keith Sullivan on a very serious injury case. He was not just very concerned about the case, but for me and my personal well-being as well. In Court he was extremely smooth and when it was needed to fight the insurance company...aggressive. He is a true fighter for people who need it most. I would definitely recommend him for others to use. He is and will reamain my families lawyer!

Exceptional attorney
Mr. Sullivan is an attorney who many attorneys refer catastrophically injured clients tlo. Keith dots all the I's and crosses all the T's and leaves no angle un-addressed. I have been referring cases to him for several years now and will continue to do so going forward. I have not been disappointed. In fact, if anything, i have been shocked at the recoveries he has secured for his clients. Totally blew me away with the numbers he was able to resolve cases for. Without a doubt, i would recommend Keith Sullivan and his firm.

Highly Reccomended & Qualified attorney
Several months ago I was charged with a DWI. This was something I did not take lightly, I felt as if my life was ruined due to my poor decision. Some dont realize just how much this offense can cost you. It can cost you your driver’s license, your job and even your freedom. Keith genuinley cared about my case and the outcome of it. Thanks to Keiths hard work and knowledge of the law, my charges were reduced. I couldnt be more thankful.

Trusted and Knowledgable
Let me start by saying that if you are in need of an attorney you won't find one with more integrity and knowledge than Keith. I was weary, I think everyone is about contacting an attorney when you've been hurt in an auto accident. From the first conversation I had with Keith, I was at ease. He spoke with me that first day on the phone for over an hour, he listened, I mean really listened to me. I had tests run and when the results came back better than expected, he was honestly happy that I wasn't hurt worse, not upset because my case might not make as much money. He stayed on top of everything, when the insurance company was dragging their feet, I was confident that Keith was fully prepared at all times. Keith is a fantastic attorney. I am thankful everyday that we were told about Keith, I trust him completely and can't imagine what I would have done without him and his help. He helped me make the right decisions for me and my family and no one can ask for more than that.

Excellent attorney who truly cares
Mr. Sullivan helped with a civil matter that didn't involve a substantial amount of money. To him this was irrelevant. He handled my case as though it were the single most important matter in his practice. In the end, the matter was resolved in my favor. I can't thank him enough for assisting me through a confusing legal system with the utmost care and concern

Keith Sullivan
I am the President of an advocacy group for NYC residents and firefighters named Merit Matters. Keith found out about our mission- to fight to maintain standards for FDNY hiring and promotion as well as ensuring equal treatment for all applicants- and contacted me to volunteer his services. His advice, efforts and time have helped us immeasurably as we struggle to understand the various twists and turns that occur in the legal system.
