Excellent Experience
Mr Gallagher was extremely professional and kind. During our initial consultation, he was very informative. He Provided me with all of my options. I was hurt at work and really needed advice and help, as I was not able to continue to work because of my injury. Though I cannot not go into specifics, I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend this firm.

Highly recommended!!
I am writing to help anyone else who has been injured at work and is deciding whether or not to get a lawyer. I research and write my reviews of everything online - restaurants, tire dealers, carpet cleaners, etc. I have lived in Florida for 21 years. I was at the same job for nine years and was hurt at my job a year and a half ago. Everything was OK at first, but then I realized that the doctors and insurance company were working together to screw me. I knew that I needed a lawyer. I must've had 35 lawyers contact me about my case. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are both lawyers, but not injury lawyers, and not in Florida. They called lawyers in Florida to find out who the best workers comp lawyer was. They were both told that Kevin Gallagher is one of the Best workers comp lawyers in the State of Florida. I did my own research to check on him and several others. I have also been told that you have to find an attorney that actually goes to a lot of trials in the area of law that you need. Some lawyers just try to settle cases and don't go to trial. But the insurance companies don't take them seriously because they know that those lawyers will not go to trial. Some of the lawyers that contacted me do "personal injury" but not really a lot of workers comp. anyway, I checked different court websites in Florida. I saw that Kevin R Gallagher took more workers comp cases to trial than ANY other attorney in the last three years. I kept checking, and saw that he has even won cases in front of the appellate courts and the Florida Supreme Court. There was another guy who did a lot of appellate and supreme court cases, but he only did the appellate and Supreme court cases. So, I decided Kevin Gallagher was definitely the lawyer I wanted. My brother-in-law said I would probably only talk to a paralegal. That was not the case. Kevin Gallagher met with me and my wife at our house. He talked to us for an hour and a half. It was amazing. He knew everything about the doctors, the clinic, insurance company in my case. So, I hired Kevin as my lawyer, and it couldn't of been a better decision. There were so many things that I didn't even know insurance company was not supposed to be doing. I will talk to him, and he would tell me what the doctors were going to say before they even said it. Anyway, Kevin got me new doctors that actually knew what they were doing and were trying to help me. He made the insurance company pay me money that they owed me (They didn't pay me for three months before I hired Kevin because they said that the doctor said I could work "light duty"). I ended up having surgery. I'm not perfect now, but I'm pretty good. I could've went back to my job, but I decided not to. I just finished my case with the Gallagher Law Group, PA. I settled my case for $355,000.00. I have a new job. I am so grateful that I hired Kevin R Gallagher and the Gallagher Law Group, P.A., to help me through this. The entire office was great. I really hope this may help anyone else who had to go through what I did for those first several months before I hired Kevin R Gallagher.

Worked for Mr. Gallagher in the Miami Office-
I do not know why anyone would write a bad review. We work hard for our clients. Sometimes clients do not like it when we honest. The WC law provides for limited benefits and we certainly maximize those benefits. We've represented over 2,000 happy clients. I've referred by best friends and family members to this firm.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Gallagher made me feel very comfortable throughout my entire workers comp case. Everytime I would get a letter in the mail I didn’t know what it was, and I would get really nervous. I would call Mr. Gallagher directly, he would explain it so that I understood, and everything would be fine. Everytime I thought I was at a dead end, he would somehow create other options that I didn’t even know I had. He was very strong and tough in court, but I believe he always cared most about what was best for me. In the end it was my decision to settle or keep working, and I would not have had the option if it wasn’t for him. I decided to settle my case, but only after I found a new job first. I was so very happy with the way Mr. Gallagher guided me through the entire case and stood up to the insurance company when he needed to. I had another attorney for a car accident 4 years ago, and it was totally different. I never even talked to the attorney for that case. I just talked to a secretary, and they always told me the same thing that they were sending a demand for settlement. I was expecting the same thing when I had my work accident, but it was a totally different experience. Mr. Gallagher actually talked to me and didn’t ever make me feel like I was bothering him – like my other attorney did. I wish everyone could get an attorney like Mr. Gallagher if they are have to suffer through an accident like I did.

Great attorney!
I had an attorney before Kevin and I never got to talk to him. The first time I heard from him he called me to settle my case for nothing. I went to Kevin G and he told me my case was worth 4x what the first attorney wanted me to settle for. I used to call Kevin on his cell at 10pm at night - and he answered! He ended up settling my case for 5x the other attorneys offer. I sent 6 more people to Kevin G since my case settled. The guy is a great attorney.

My Review
Kevin did a great job. He offered good advice and kept me informed throughout the entire legal process. I truly felt as though my case was a top priority for him. He always returned my calls in a timely manner and contacted me when new issues arose regarding my case. I was happy with the successful outcome of my case & I would definitely recommend him.
