Great for corporate/startup law
Our startup has been using Todd and the folks at Gallinger Law for all our corporate legal needs for the last few years, and we couldn't recommend them more highly. Todd is thoughtful, diligent, and always very reasonable with billing. If you have a small to medium sized company and need legal help, give Gallinger Law a try (the first consultation is free according to their website).

President and CEO
I had an issue about two plus years ago where my ex-partner didn't want do any work in the company and yet was demanding 50%. I called on Mr. Gallinger, he handled it without having to go to court, and yet helped me expel him from the company. To me that was minimum cost money wise as well as avoided all headaches.

I had a positive experience working with Todd
Todd helped me with my immigration case. I found Todd to be very knowledgeable and experienced. Soon after contacting him, he started the process and kept me informed of the status of my case. When the case was taking longer than it should, he raised the flag with the government’s attorney and made sure that we get their attention. My case specifically was a little harder since the government attorney was on maternity leave for a long time and we had to deal with a different one who needed to be educated about the history of the case. Todd did very good job in making sure that the case is getting the attention it deserves and succeeded in getting me my citizenship. I already recommended Todd to other people who needed help with the immigration.

Lack of right information presented
I have asked for consultation from this called lawyer and he charged me $1,500 to process my immigration visa. Later I found out I can not obtain visa to visit my family in the US, when I asked for a refund, even though he did not spend more than 2 emails communicating basic information about my questions he refused to refund the money. He did not care to give me the professional recommendation, and did not really help much in anything but claimed he performed some hours of work to give me a copy paste answer from Google. I would never recommend to any one. Now I found this platform after 10 years, but I still remembered his name and I am happy to let others be aware before getting involved any any services through him.
