We Won Good Versus Evil
Mr. Galvin and others at his office were very helpful in allowing us to win the case for tortuous interference against us and our case for conversion against the plaintiff. James was highly focused, knew the law, and attempted to win the case for the least amount of our money. Although still expensive, it was good to know he was aware of the hardship that this was putting us through. I had previously used James in a real estate suit, winning that case as well. I found James to be very professional, personable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend James and other members of his law firm.

James has done legal work for me, my family, and my business for several years. His integrity is above reproach. Further, he brings a balanced view to each situation considering legal, moral and personal perspectives as appropriate in a given situation, always with a healthy level of pragmatism.

Great attorney for business-very pleased
Our company is in focused real estate and construction industries, we have hired Mr Galvin on several occasions and have always been pleased with both the quality of his work and level of expertise given across multiple issues and needs. He has given excellent advise and counsel on deal negotiations and disputes. He has drafted complex real estate purchase and sale contracts for us. He has advised us on company policies and procedures, helping us to limit our exposure on a day to day basis. He has created operating agreements for new business entities we have started. He has helped us recover money owed from delinquent clients/vendors. I actually didn't realize how many different legal services he has provided for us over the years, but I continue to pleased and impressed both with him, but more importantly, the results he has achieved for us.

James Galvin
I consider James Galvin to be an irreplaceable member of my team. As an entrepreneur responsible for executing more than a half dozen multi-million dollar construction projects across the country at one time, I have come to rely confidently in James' abilities to provide advise on both professional and personal matters. His legal recommendations and strategy formation are provided in a straight forward manner. James is strong under pressure, knows his way around a court room and handles negotiations with care and diligence. His ethics are impeccable. He has also handled a number of legal matters for members of my extended family of a personal nature. When in need, look no further for an attorney you can trust and who will provide you with top quality service!

"As an attorney, I have on multiple occasions sent my own family members to James for property dispute litigation. I can think of no better endorsement than to say that I send my own family to him. He has become so close to my family that everyone in my family knows what it means when I say "that is a James issue." After I say those words, they know just who to call to help them. James is a professional, who really fights for his clients. I endorse him."
