After almost 8years I still reflect back on my experience with Gail as my Council. I was involved in a road rage incident in which I never exited the vehicle, and was mistakenly identified on the scene as the person who carried out an assault on another motorist. In the blink of an eye I found myself facing several serious felonies including aggravated battery with bodily injury. For over a year, 15 years was my offer, as trial approached that number was down to 8. I was so scared I considered that offer. I believe her advice was along the lines of “Absolutely not!”, she believed at times when even I was unsure.
I walked out of the courtroom a free man. Gail’s determination, passion, attention to detail, and ability to think outside of the box impressed me throughout the entire process. I distinctly remember a sense of calm walking into the courtroom with Gail, in spite of the feeling that the odds were stacked against our favor. HOW she represented me was just as important as WHAT she did in my defense. I never once felt rushed or that I had a stupid question, and from beginning to end I knew I had somebody in Gail who was in it to win for me, and willing to fight for me.
My story would have turned out a lot different if it wasn’t for your skilled and compassionate representation. No wife, no kids, no career, I would just be tasting freedom again. I know there are many options for representation, but I honestly feel there is no other attorney who could have done what you did for me. I can’t thank you enough, and my family and I wish you nothing but the best!

Gail was invaluable in helping me get through a very difficult time in my life. Any client that is fortunate enough to have Gail represent them, is a lucky client. Her no nonsense approach in the courtroom demands attention. I was truly impressed in how Gail conducts herself with a calm but shrewd demeanor. Gail didn't miss a beat in that courtroom. Her experience with law stands out and can make any client know they are in good hands. When it comes to the judicial system, one does not want to roll the dice and allow the courts to direct their future. I utilized Gail Conolly three different times and all three times the outcome was to my liking and not the courts. That was over 10 years ago and I can only tell one what Gail has done for me, one would have to see with their own eyes what Gail can do for them.

Gail Conolly was a Godsend for my family and I. I was charged with a felony and scared that I had nowhere to turn. Gail heard of my case and after meeting, decided to take me on as a client. She instantly became part of my family, and treated me as if I was a part of hers. She fought for me and after a lengthy trial, I was found not guilty of all charges. Had it not been for her, I might never have been able to resume my life and return to my wife and children. It's been 8 years since I was acquitted and we still keep in touch to this day! She will always be a part of my family, and I thank God for her everyday!

I worked with Gail on a very serious criminal matter and she brought a lot of experience to the table as a former Assistant State Attorney and years of experience also defending those accused. It was such a pleasure working with her. Prospective clients will find a caring advocate who will fight on their behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.
