Michael handled two arbitration cases for us. One was with a builder and one was with an HOA. We were the defendants in both cases. On the builder case we had worked with 3 other attorneys and had basically been told we were screwed. Michael Galletch came in on the tail end of this case; an arbitrator had already been assigned. Michael didn't pull any punches he told us it would be an up hill battle, but he immediately got to work researching the situation, he kept us in the loop continually. He wrote a well thought out , thorough brief, the arbitrator agreed with us and ruled in our favor, even awarding us attorney fees! The second case was given to Michael at even a later date than the first case, he basically had a week to prepare for that case. Again Michael Galletch was immediate in action, researching the specifics of our position and wrote a very detailed three page brief for the arbitrator. Once the HOA read Michaels arguments, they dropped their suit, as they were aware that they would loose and would have to pay our attorney fees. We had also worked with three other attorneys on this case. We are extremely pleased with the integrity and honesty that Michael Galletch portrayed. We highly recommend Michael and will use him in the future.

I used Michael approximately 8 months ago to review contract documents; he was thorough and detailed. The opposing council was attempting to keep 100% of my earnest money. Mike was able to review the documents and determine that a substancial refund was due back to me. Another attorney had reviewed the documents and missed the details. Thanks to Michael's thoroughness , my money was refunded.

Mike handled a business dispute for us--he undersold and over delivered. He had great insight and anticipated exactly what would happen. He kept us informed through out and, his put me at ease. Really invaluable, and I know having worked with other lawyers before.

Mike has practical wisdom, good human warmth and the type of razor sharp legal skills that every client wants out in front of his or her business interests. Work with him, and he will likely be your lawyer for life.
