Simply the best - you won't be disappointed!
I highly recommend Galen. He represented me in a wrongful death suit. He was compassionate, professional, and timely in all communications. He set reasonable expectations during the initial consultation and I am very pleased with the final outcome.

Excellent Service!
After a car accident/injury, I didn't believe I needed a lawyer to handle my case since the other driver claimed full responsibility. I was so wrong. After several months of getting the run around from the insurance company, I was referred to Galen by a friend. He explained the laws to me in great detail, including what paperwork to expect in the mail and how long the case would take. When he took over my case, I didn't have to worry about anything or spend hours on the phone fighting with insurance people. Galen and his staff handled everything in a professional and timely manner. If I would receive a lien from my medical insurance in the mail, Galen would already have a copy and handle it for me, then email me and explain what they took care of. He was always available to talk with - even nights or weekends - if I had any questions or concerns. Not only did he get the maximum from the driver's insurance, but he also got the maximum from my under-insured motorist coverage. Because of his hard work, my case was completed in about a year - which I'm told is quite speedy for an accident/injury case. I would enthusiastically recommend Galen to anyone requiring services for an accident/injury case.

Personal Injury Claim
Galen assisted me with a personal injury claim and I was very impressed with his professionalism and timeliness in resolving my case. He was extremely knowledgeable about the law, upfront and honest and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to my close family and friends. Great, positive experience!

100% Dependabilty and Follow Though
My family was involved in a head-on collision that sent my pregnant wife and I to the emergency room. The other driver was completely at fault, submitted admission of fault, was cited by DPS, and witnessed by two other parties. Despite this, the driver's insurance company was evasive for several months and claimed to not have my family's contact information, citing that as the reason for not taking any action to pay our escalating medical bills. This was unacceptable reaction by the insurance company and I was getting nowhere fast dealing with multiple phone calls from medical billing offices weekly. All this came at sensitive time in my family's life as we were relocating to a new state, buying a new house and welcoming our daughter into the world. Galen and his team came highly recommended and were very thorough in pursuit of accurate compensation from the other party's insurance. They were able to give my family peace of mind that medical billing offices would not be harassing us for payment or unfairly destroying our credit while the process was being sorted out. The communication from Galen's office was prompt, accurate and I was never in doubt that our best interests were being looked after. When the insurance company was starting to show signs for dragging out the process or underpay what was fair compensation, Galen was swift in responding as well as successfully countering their initial offers. I will not hesitate to consult and seek representation Galen along with his team in the future. You should do the same. You will not be disappointed!

Galen was amazing!
Galen was there for me in a hard time whe. I got into my car accident I was hurt and with out a car he worked quickly and efficiently to help my case. If I ever needed anything regarding my case he was quick to respond and follow through. Very professional and overall a very nice man.

Highly Recommend!
I sustained serious injuries when a distracted driver violently crashed into the rear-end of my vehicle while I was stopped at an intersection. My wife, who works in the legal field, told me to call Galen right away. I’m glad I did. He brought my claim to a successful conclusion and made sure I was appropriately compensated for my injuries. I would highly recommend Galen to anyone in need of a personal injury lawyer!

Great lawyer
I was involved in a car accident that was not my fault. After a few months of struggle dealing with the insurance company on my own, with no positive results, I hired Galen. He immediately started working on my case. He was very knowledgeable and apprised me of all my rights. He lead the discovery process and negotiations with the insurance company. He fought for me and moved the case along. He was professional, proactive, and kept me well informed throughout the case. He negotiated a fair settlement for me, and I was very happy with the outcome. Galen saved me a great deal of stress and aggravation. I recommend Galen to everyone, including my friends and family.
