car accident
I contacted Mr. Galm about a car accident. He called me back to sort out if we really needed his services and spoke with me by telephone for 20 mnutes. He explained the way the laws would work in our situation and what he would expect to happen. In a situation which had caused a great deal of anxiety for our family, he was able to ease our minds in minutes. We ended up concluding we would not need his help with this situation, but if I ever need a lawyer again for this kind of problem, he will be the one we contact!

A Lawyer Who Cares
Paul went above and beyond for us after my husband was injured in an accident. He was thorough, attentive to all aspects of the case, and kept us informed of all of our options. He brought in experts and carefully examined who was responsible for the accident. What I really appreciated was when other lawyers would have given up, Paul continued to fight for us. We would seek Paul's counsel again if we needed legal representation.

Client review
Open and direct communication and patient enough to explain things when there is some confusion or question. I trust him to take the correct path not just the profitable one.

Great Attorney, would recommend.
One of the most honest attorneys I've ever worked with. Actually responded and did the work even after getting paid fully.....unlike most of the attorneys I've had the displeasure of working with.

Best experience for circumstances
Having to obtain a lawyer is not something anyone looks forward to. Quite possibly it is right up there with taking your car into a auto repair shop when you know nothing about cars. In my lifetime I have had a few bad experiences with, attorneys to know the difference, between a good attorney and a bad attorney. Unfortunately it cost me allot of money to learn those lessons the hard way. My experience with Paul has always been outstanding. His soft demeanor when needed is what I liked most because facing a duii or reckless charge in itself is terrifying. I have always had a great outcome with any and all legal matters from personal criminal defense issues to sending business referrals for simple legal advice. All the referrals I have sent Paul for criminal defense such as harassment, restraining orders, DUIIs and personal injury have all had great outcomes and would use Paul again. Referring a lawyer can end a friendship, or business relationship quickly. So I don't say this lightly, Paul Galm is a solid quality person who you can trust to get the job done. I appreciate an honest straightforward lawyer, and Paul is just that.

Paul, You rock!
Paul has been such a wonderful help to me. Not only is he kind, personable, and reliable, he is just down right a great guy. I appreciate all of the hard work he does on my cases. I just wish I would have found him years ago! If you need a good solid attorney to actually work and do it right, Paul is your guy! Thanks so much, Paul!

Very Good Lawyer
Paul is no-nonsense, straightforward, diligent and hard working. He represented me very well. I was so impressed, I ended up using him for business reasons.

Excellent Attorney
Paul always treated me in a very professional, friendly and knowledgable way. He provided excellent legal advice on a number of issues including medical mapractice and a case involving my son. He has helped me successfully resolve my legal matters in an efficient manner. His fees are very resonable and he didn't charge me for phone calls, e-mails or letters like some of the other attorneys have.

Great Attorney!
I was so stressed out after getting my 1st and only DUI and didn't know what was going to happen to me. Didn't know if I was going to jail or what, and was really worried. I emailed Paul Galm on a Sunday morning and he called me back within a half hour!! He let me know what my options were and really helped me calm down and feel at ease. I hired him and he fought for me and got me the best deal possible. He kept me in the loop and was always there to answer my questions right away. That's really unheard of! I definitely recommend his services. You will have an attorney that fights for your best interest and be by your side through the whole process.

Business Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I was opposing counsel on a case with Paul and he is a top shelf lawyer. He worked with me to identify the facts and not bury them. We squared off on the issues which neither of us had dealt with before and both our clients prevailed on important and tense legal issues. Which sounds ordinary but that we did it without the tension being personal was extraordinary. Great lawyer and one that I would recommend friends and family to."

"Paul calls things as he sees them; has nothing but straight talk; he will go to the mat with you but still remains honest, ethical, and a gentleman - not an easy thing to do in this profession. He is diligent and a hard worker. Rest easy if your lawyer is Paul Galm - you are in good hands. Next time, Paul, I'll beat you..."
