  • Donny J. Foty

    Galvin is one of the finest lawyers I have ever known. He has a superb knowledge of the law and his courtroom skills are phenomenal. I have watched him question witnesses with such finesse that the weaknesses of the opposing side’s case are quickly revealed. He easily develops a great rapport with juries and other attorneys in any case. One of his greatest traits is his ability to analyze complex legal situations and break them down to a manner that juries easily comprehend. He has a tremendous knowledge of overtime law and the Fair Labor Standards Act in general.
