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.

I hired Attorney Joe Gallo to represent my 17 year old son. He stated the pros/cons of my son's case and he worked hard for a dismissal. He was an Excellent Attorney and provided Excellent Service. He provided case updates and did not allow the case to linger over a long period of time. I would recommend him Again and Again. The outcome of my son's case was everything I prayed for. Thank you for your Superb service Attorney Joe Gallo.

I had a complicated case because I was living in another state when I recieved my DWI and I didnt require a vehicle to get around so I hesitated to get any restrictions lifted. When I moved back to Texas and needed to drive everywhere, the charges and restrictions between the two states were incredibly convoluted and my lawyer from the state that I was charged in was unreliable and unresponsive. I was at a total loss and was SO fortunate to have hired Mr. Gallo to not only get my temporary license while I finished the probationary requirements but he was also amazing enough to help afterwards AT NO EXTRA FEE to get my interlock igniton removed and all restrictions lifted from my license. He gave me the ability to finally put all of this behind me and I am forever thankful. Super efficient and extraordinarily dependable, I could not have been more pleased with the impeccable service provided!
