My case was a long and arduous process, so Gal had to put up with me for several years… and I am not an easy person to tolerate! Fortunately, his work ethic was nothing short of stellar and he made himself available whenever I had questions or needed clarification regarding any legal specifics. He made the process fairly painless to endure; and even though I wasn’t hopeful regarding the outcome of my case, Gal absolutely shined in the courtroom which resulted in a favorable verdict. I couldn’t be happier – Thanks Gal!

I was charged with disorderly conduct a few months ago, a misdemeanor. Having had no prior incidents with the law, this was an awful, nerve-wracking ordeal for me. After speaking with a few lawyers, I found Gal and immediately felt more at ease. He took the time to hear all of my concerns, and took my case very seriously despite it being a more minor offense. I received tremendous, realistic advice and support from him and Justyna while I awaited my court date, and ended up getting the charges completely dropped, the best possible outcome I could have hoped for. I was also very impressed with the high regard and respect the judge seemed to have for him and Justyna when I was in court. The judge definitely seemed to know them well and I got the impression he even enjoyed working with them. I would refer Gal to anyone in my situation or worse, you're definitely in great hands with this team. He's also won several awards for his work and is a legal advisor for a news outlet, further adding to his credibility.

Hands down, Gal is one of the best lawyers out there! He is very knowledgeable and extremely poised in the courtroom. He was with me every step of the way in fighting a Class A Misdemeanor for nearly 3 years. I cannot thank him enough for everything he did and getting the charge dismissed!

My son was charged with a,Class X Felony charge facing 9 years in prison. After hiring two attorneys who made me feel very uncomfortable I decided to hire Mr Pissetsky . He assured me that he would do everything he could to help my son and he DID! He is geeat, he returned my calls right away and made me feel at ease. Mr Pissetsky reduced the Class X charge to a Class,1 and was able to get my son 2 year probation plus community service. He is an awesome attorney and I will recommend him to anyone who really needs the bestl attorney! Thank you Mr Pissetzky for saving my son from going to prison. Also want to thank Ms Justyna Kruk for her professionalism. I highly recommend Mr. Pissetsky to anyone looking for the best!

Mr Pissetzky was clear and direct when presenting my options. I was accused of conspiracy of commuting wire fraud, and managed to get just one year in federal prison. That, considering I am a deportable alien. Mr Pissetzky managed to extend the time until sentencing much longer than I expected. I am very greatful for that. He knows how to work with judges, and is a very respected gentlemen in his profession.

I was looking at 6 to 9 years in prison but Gal fought for me for two entire stressful years, he was always so confident and positive of the case, at times I would be very discouraged but kept me positive and I am extremely grateful for that and for the excellent job he did. I would hire him again with out any hesitation. A million Thank yous from me and my entire family Gal!

Gal will go the extra mile for you. If you're in trouble, he should be your first choice. I'm able to live my life with my family thanks to his hard work. Highest recommendation.

What can I say about an attorney who went above and beyond. I was fighting a Federal case for 4 years with Gal by myside he fought for me all the way. Was told i was going to serve 7 years and walked away with 2 years probation. If you want a lawyer to go to bat for you and do his job then i highly recommend Gal.

In July 2012, I was indicted on 2 Federal charges stemming from a 5 year investigation (2007) in which I was the target of 3 governmental agencies (FBI, DEA, Cook County Sheriffs Police). I was facing 5 years in prison for being an informant's pawn. Then next 3 years were nothing short of a nightmare. I lost my job, my dignity, and almost lost my family.
From day 1, of my indictment however, my wife and I were astonished and very much satisfied by Gal's professionalism and demeanor towards the Federal prosecutors, agents, and judge.
Gal became knowledgeable with my background and researched my case (5 years worth of police reports) with a fine comb.
The case took approximately 2 1/2 years to go to trial and another year or so for sentencing. During that timeframe, I struggled finding employment, family issues arose, and I became mentally drained. Gal showed compassion for me and I know he truly cared for me as a person, not just a client; but he never lost focus of my case.
During my trial, Gal showed passion in representing me. Gal fought till the very end, winning key motions that would have changed the dynamics of my trial & verdict. In the end, Gal beat 1 of the 2 charges. I was eventually convicted for: "making a false statement to a federal agent", and was facing up to 6 months in prison.
During my sentencing hearing in April 2015, Gal again fought for me relentlessly till the very end. He fought to get me the lowest points under the Federal Sentencing guidelines. Eventually, I faced my fate; I received 6 months of probation.
This case has been the most humbling experience I've ever endured in my life.
I am happily employed now, spend a lot of time with my wife and children, and have my dignity again. I am forever indebted to you, Thank you Gal!
