I retained a Jamie Galati to file a simple objection to my being named in a Trust petition filed. Not only did she misspell my name on the petition but the day before the filing deadline she told me that the $2,500 went into a Trust (yeah right!) and billed me over $4,000. All I ever got out of this lawyer was a telephonic consultation because I live out of state. I will share pictures of her correspondence to me and the petition that never got filed because she at the 11th hour held it hostage for another four grand! Look me up I'll share all the pictures all the documents with you if you want proof what is shady lawyer this is. Linda, Las Vegas, NV

Re: Jaime Galati
I recently had the opportunity of meeting with and subsequently hiring Jaime Galati to handle a sticky legal matter for me.
I have been in business in California and Idaho for over thirty years and during that time have had, on many occasions, the need to engage legal representation to handle business as well as the occasional personal matter. This representation has been provided by large firms, small firms and, by independent solo practitioners.
During those many years, I have never worked with an attorney who was so straightforward, direct and well prepared to take care of my problem. Jaime was responsive, answered all of my questions and was eager to explain where the case was directed and the possible solutions.
She had an excellent grasp of the issues and insights into solutions. She attends to detail and her legal analysis and writings are without flaw. She is charming, competent and well qualified.
In the event I have need, in the future, of legal assistance, my first call will be to Jaime.

Jaime is easy to talk to, she listened to me and addressed any concerns that I had. She is succinct, to the point and easy to understand. Jaime speaks to you in your language. She doesn't use big fancy words to try to impress you. Hiring a lawyer can be a scary thing. Jaime is about as far from scary as you can get. She is very professional but is also kind and understanding. I plan on using her services again.

Jaime is an exceptional lawyer. I had the privilege of working closely with her for over two years on an incredibly complex probate and trust litigation, including trial--which lasted several months. Jaime did an outstanding job and was largely responsible for our success in that case. She is a hard worker; her oral advocacy, legal analysis and writing skills are excellent; she has great people skills and her ethics are above reproach. I have no hesitation whatsoever giving Jaime my highest recommendation and endorsement.

Jaime Galati is an excellent trusts and estates litigation attorney. She has significant experience in legal research, negotiating settlements and motions in the probate court. Jaime is a fantastic trial attorney and is capable of handling any trust dispute no matter the complexity. I endorse this lawyer.
