Everything you could want
Byron provided me with sound and accurate legal advice and helped me to win my case. He was very professional and was always willing to return my phone calls, usually that very same day. I've had other lawyers in the past, that always left me expecting more, not the case with Byron. I highly recommend him and we'll use him in the future if necessary.

The BEST lawyer I've had the pleasure to meet/work with!
Let me start off by saying that Mr. Gallagher is absolutely the BEST lawyer I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I was so fortunate to have found him. The first thing I noticed was his willingness to just listen. He never rushed me which made me feel comfortable enough to explain in detail my situation and ask him all the questions I had. He always returned my calls and emails promptly and he was always consistent in keeping me informed through every step of the process. I truly appreciate from the bottom of my heart all his help and consideration and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding lawyer.
