…always promptly communicated back to me, either by phone or text message and always made me feel at ease. [Their] knowledge and understanding of the court system allowed me to make the right decisions throughout the entire process – with a fantastic outcome! I couldn’t be more satisfied.

Just recently finished settling from an auto accident that was a little over 2 years ago, Gallagher & Kennedy represented me and as far as everything goes, I don’t really have any complaints, however I did feel like at times there could of been some more communication with me and letting me know what was going on. Glad everything is finally over and I can move on. Would recommend their law firm to represent you if you want very professional people.

Gallagher & Kennedy [attorneys] are consummate professionals and relentless in their efforts to win. Opponents have to work twice as hard when facing G&K.

Amazing, wonderful, thoughtful, professional, on point…. Just a few words I could use to describe these wonderful humans. So responsible, followed up on every little detail, had answers to ALL my questions, no BS deflection or decoy answers. Having a case is stressful enough, knowing this team is on it will put your mind at rest.
