  • Tarush R. Anand

    I had the pleasure of working with Michael on several complex personal injury cases pending in various courts across Texas. This allowed me to witness, first-hand, the hard work and dedication that Michael brings to his work. He is diligent and strives to be the best at what he does.

    I have personally worked with this attorney on numerous occasions, both as co-counsel, and as opposing counsel. In all contexts, Mr. Gallagher was thorough, aggressive, extraordinarily prepared and very effective as an advocate for his client. I respect him immensely as an opponent, and look forward to every opportunity to prosecute a matter together.
