Gale was below average as far as lawyers I have had represent me in the past. She did not keep me informed and it was difficult to get her to return phone calls. I got the impression that she was not well received by her peers, especially the prosecution. I ended up getting another lawyer to represent me. The "deal" she had obtained from the DA for me was not a deal at all. I could have approached the DA personally and agreed to a plea for a lesser sentence. Personally, I would not entrust her with my freedom. I felt like she was either unqualified in criminal law or just incompetent.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
