Ken Gallon was very nice, warm and welcoming. He helped me with questions about my brothers case. He answered my questions and explained them and helped me understand the questions that were asked. 10/10 would recommend.

Excellent attorney and staff
I was looking for an attorney for my son and had called numerous lawyers in the area. We are from Ohio so I had no idea where to start. I came across Ken’s firm and sent an email about my situation. I received a call back at 10 pm that night. The ONLY lawyer to call me back. He has been amazing and I would recommend him and his firm to anyone who needs an attorney that cares and will do what they say they are going to do. I am so thankful for him and his staff.
