  1. Entertainment
    80%
    As an entertainment attorney, I negotiate and draft personal service contracts in the entertainment industry. Representing musicians, producers, actors, artists, managers, production companies and writers brings something new everyday. I solve problems for my clients and that is sometimes the best part. Since I am a musician and producer myself, I can relate to many of those challenges.

  2. Business
    20%
    I represent start ups in the entertainment industry. Often those are film companies and artist development and recording companies in the music business. I am very familiar with those related issues.

    36 years

Being a guitar player/singer gives me at least some idea of how hard it is to make a living in show biz.  Whether on stage or behind-the-scenes with music, film, digital media, stage productions or otherwise, my clients must have special courage to succeed.  I often admire their success precisely because I know how hard it can be.  That's why I took the easy route--lawyer!

No better attorney on the planet!
Mr. Galloway was strongly recommended to me by a trusted music composer friend who frequently writes for Disney and numerous other publishing companies. I have not been disappointed in the least. Mr. Galloway has never conducted himself in a manner void of professionalism and integrity. In fact, he has exceeded my expectations time and time again. He works hard and achieves results. He is well informed and draws from a rich set of experiences in the industry. In my personal situation, I was up against a giant in the music industry - a well financed giant I must say. I was being taken advantage of big time. Mr. Galloway represented me in a manner that caused that giant (really a bully) to back down, giving me incredible reason to sleep well at night. I would strongly recommend Mr. Galloway to anyone seeking legal representation. While your chances of success can never be guaranteed by anyone, I believe you will have the BEST possible chance of success with Mr. Galloway.

Thoughtful, Timely, Responsive, Quality
When working with an attorney I look for someone who is knowledgeable, takes the time to understand what is required of him or her, responds to my inquiries and follows through in a timely manner with a quality work product. Greg hits the mark on all accounts and understands the importance of balancing legal issues with getting a deal done.

Greg is an excellent attorney that I would highly recommend to anyone seeking someone that actually cares.
Greg has represented my daughter's music career for four years. In an industry where it almost becomes impossible to know who you can trust it is such a relief to have Greg there by our sides, navigating us through what to do and what not to do. Greg brings the kind of knowledge that only someone with years of real world experience can bring and the kind of integrity that only a person who really cares can have.

More than just another Lawyer
Greg has been my Entertainment Attorney for over a decade. More importantly, he has become my friend and trusted business advisor. I depend on his judgment, advice, and candor to help me navigate through complex issues knowing that he cares about and protects my interests as if we were family. That, in turn, allows me to be open and forthright with him. Greg is a crucial part of my team and anyone with entertainment and/or business law needs would be wise to consider working with him, too.

A True Strategic Partner
I have worked with Greg for over 25 years in every facet of entertainment, intellectual property and business law. Greg has served as our virtual in-house General Council since the founding of our firm in 2001. Well beyond the purely legal work-which has always been exemplary, Greg is a trusted and essential strategic business partner and adds value in all of our operating decisions from staffing to creative affairs. It is always a pleasure to recommend Greg to our clients and partners and we could not imagine IDEAS without his leadership.

DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!
Greg Galloway is a terrible lawyer and a cheat! After charging a $300 consultation fee this man pretty much went on tease me about the possibility of paring up with a company that would help me get my production off the ground for 2 MONTHS only to turn around and tell me the deal fell through. What worst is when I asked if there was anything we could do to move forward, any people he could try to reach out to and talk to he pretty much said "I wish I could..but I can't" PLEASE save your money and DO NOT go to this guy for any legal advise. He's going to take your money, fake care about your project and leave you high and dry.
