Joe Gallo was referred to me by a Tarrant County law firm as being the best lawyer to hire in Ellis county to help assist me in getting an expunction or Non-Disclosure ruling for my criminal record.. I contacted Mr. Gallo by email and he responded in a very timely matter and when it was determined I would be eligible for the Non-Disclosure application I was directed to contact his office and set up an appointment. I had an appointment to visit with Mr. Gallo within the week and was equally impressed with his very efficient and friendly staff. Mr. Gallo was very honest with me and he explained the entire process that would be required and answered all my questions. His fee was very reasonable and I had a court date within the same month as I contacted him. You can not go wrong having Joe Gallo by your side standing in front of a Judge. He is an amazing lawyer and can give you the confidence to make it thru the most stressful time by knowing that you have him standing with you. Without a doubt if you are in need of the best Criminal Lawyer for your defense you will not be disappointed with Joe Gallo.

Last year, I was arrested for my 2nd DWI and I felt like my good life was ruined. My medical license was also going to be in jeopardy. After making bond, I immediately began searching for the best criminal defense attorney that I could find. I interviewed a few, but Mr. Gallo's office was the only one to call me back with important information that the other attorneys never even mentioned. After researching, I discovered that Mr. Gallo is very experienced on all sides (Prosecutor, Municipal Judge, and Defense Attorney). He was always was very direct with me and he didn't sugarcoat anything. His confidence gave me the courage to fight this out, even knowing I could actually face some jail time. He is very honest, doesn't butter it up, he will tell you both the best & the worst case scenarios. Everything he does is "Balls to the wall." He will fight hard for you and is very impressive in the courtroom. We eventually set my case for a jury trial, but I never had to even go to trial because he won a pre-trial motion to suppress the evidence. After that, the case was dismissed. Thanks to Mr. Gallo, I now have my life back!

In our first consultation as i was in complete worry about my future Joseph told me, "give me all your stress and worry, continue to live your life like it didn't happen". Being this was first time in criminal court I trusted him and hoped this not a empty promise. After almost a year of letting him take on that stress and worry, I realized that Joseph was true to his word and not empty promises when i received my NOT GUILTY verdict. I never saw the work behind the scenes, but after my days in court I couldn't help but think he worked everyday fighting for my justice. If you want a lawyer that is not afraid to fight for you and give you the fair trial that you deserve Joseph Gallo is the MAN!

I would like to enthusiastically recommend Joseph Gallo for anyone in need of a solid criminal defense attorney in Waxahachie/Ellis County. Last summer while driving through
Waxahachie, I was arrested and charged with 2 misdemeanors
(DWI with a blood alcohol of .28 , possession of marijuana) and 1 felony (possession of marijuana). I am a physician, therefore the Texas Medical Board was notified of the charges, and they immediately suspended my medical license. I was in dire straits and freaking out about the potential jail time, loss of my medical license and career, and having a felony on my record. My sister is an attorney in California and she spent several days thoroughly researching and vetting attorneys to find the best representation possible. We chose Mr. Gallo based on his extensive experience in both prosecution and defense. During my multiple meetings with Mr. Gallo he was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. He did a great job of presenting complex legal matters in a clear simple format that I could understand. My felony case went to the grand jury and had a high likelihood of going to trial. Mr. Gallo presented a convincing letter to the jury outlining my background, mistakes committed by the arresting officer, and case law surrounding the matter. The jury voted to "No Bill" the felony charge ! Mr. Gallo also negotiated a more than fair settlement for the 2 misdemeanors. The possession of marijuana charge was dismissed altogether. For the DWI, I did not have to serve any jail time and my driver's licence was never suspended. Along the way, I had a few other attorney friends suggest that I should go with a bigger name attorney from Austin, but I never entertained this proposition as I had full faith in Mr. Gallo. I strongly recommend 'going local' when it comes to criminal cases because the relationships your attorney has with the legal community and their reputation is much more important than a flashy resume. Mr. Gallo had excellent rapport with me, my family, and the healthcare attorneys involved in my case. He replied to everyone's emails within a few hours. In our most recent meeting, he stressed that he would be available to help with any ongoing issues with the case and any other legal matters that may arise in the future. I consider Joe Gallo a lifesaver, a friend, and my legal go to guy for life.

I was charged with something that, while technically accurate, was in my mind well outside the bounds of the spirit of the law. Outraged, I contacted Joe Gallo, who not only calmed me down, but gave me realistic expectations of the outcome of my case.
He followed this up with meetings with the prosecutor and came back with a settlement that was wise, fair, and redeemed my record. All this while maintaining communication with me so that I never felt "in the dark" regarding my case.
With both his expertise and experience, Joe Gallo makes you feel as though you truly have an advocate - someone who will work hard on your behalf in the confusing and often scary legal world.
I strongly recommend Joe Gallo!

I'm not sure where to even start with how great Mr. Gallo is both as an attorney as well great person I would call a friend. I have never thought I would need a criminal defense attorney in a thousand years.
Our relationship started when I charged with a 1st degree felony that I had no part in. Obviously I was in a panic, I have never done anything wrong in my life other than a few traffic tickets. I remember my first meeting with Gallo, I was trying to keep it together but on the inside I was freaking out. By the end of that meeting Gallo had some how had me feeling positive and told me to go home, relax and let him handle it. During the entire year and a half process he always knew what to say to make me feel at ease. During the whole process Mr. Gallo always kept me in the loop and updated as soon as new information came to him. He is very thorough in the case, going over each and every detail as well as making sure you understand everything.
So at the end of this year and a half my 1st degree felony was dismissed, it was all over and I felt relieved. If it was not for Mr. Gallo with all his wisdom and expertise I'm not sure how I would have made it through this whole ordeal. My advise here is, if you are looking for a criminal defense attorney stop looking and call Mr. Gallo now. I now look forward that when I talk with Gallo now it is over better topics that do not involve me going to prison.

I highly recommend Mr. Joseph Gallo for legal representation. He is highly efficient, organized and honest. I found myself in a terrible situation and saw no way out except jail time. I was charged with three felonies for possession of drugs. Joe was able to get two of the felonies reduced to misdemeanors and negotiated no probation, fine or court cost for the felony I was charged with. He didn't even charge me for the felony case at all. He kept me updated on every detail along the way.
I felt at ease the moment I met him. Everything he said he could do, he did and more. I'm so thankful we decided to hire him. Joe is a man of his word. I think of him as a friend now.
If you need legal representation, put your mind at ease and let Joe take care of it.

Mr. Gallo is excellent at what he does. His experience and reputation is well established. From the very beginning he kept us informed of the process and what to expect/anticipate. He provided clear direction and we wasted no time in following through with his recommendations to insure the most positive outcome. Not only did he provide sound, fair and honest legal counsel, he provided support and encouragement to a young man who has turned his life around and is a better person today for it. Although I hope there is never another need for his services, I will, without hesitation, use him again as well as refer others in need of an excellent attorney and exceptional individual.
