What People Say
Our newly formed internet marketing company was facing wrongful competition injunctive litigation filed by a Fortune 100 multi-national corporation. The litigation was intended to close our new business. John assembled a team of lawyers and other essential professionals from several firms with various specialties that he deemed necessary to carry out our self-defense. John managed this team through several years of aggressive pleadings, discovery, jury trial and post judgment hearings. We not only succeeded in defeating the efforts to put our new company out of business, but we also were successful in our counterclaims for bad-faith litigation and were awarded costs, attorney fees and punitive outstanding lawyering. The personalities of each of the lawyers and professionals were strong and sensitive. John did an amazing job of assembling, managing, and even replacing when necessary to and through a resounding victory.
I was the CFO of a Fortune 100 multinational corporation that was rocked by a major accounting scandal after I left the company. I retained John and his firm after I had already secured the legal services of a large and highly regarded law firm with its main offices in a major east coast city. John analyzed the difficulties I was facing from the Department of Justice, the SEC, multiple civil class actions, corporate investigation and media coverage. John asked me to provide him with a list of priorities/objectives. John then constructed a “game plan” and assembled a team of lawyers and other necessary professionals from several different firms. During this very trying time, John was always available, in the middle of the night, weekends, etc., to tend to my needs. In the end, we achieved each of my objectives. We avoided criminal and most civil prosecutions, saved my family from public ridicule, preserved my family fortune, and avoided any appreciable negative impact on my business reputation which allowed me to form and build successful new businesses. John’s work was outstanding. The results were spectacular. He is truly the best attorney I have ever worked with.
I think very highly of John Galarnyk’s firm and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. He has very high standards and morals in getting the job done for his client. He gave me great advice and always spoke to me, not down to me to keep me involved on what was going on in my case. My experience with his firm has been excellent. Everyone there is very professional and friendly. I always felt that I was the “number one client”: I could not have asked for a better firm to represent me. John and Sarah, his fellow attorney, did an awesome job getting me the money I was entitled to and letting me know that there are attorneys out there who puts the client’s feelings and needs first before thinking about winning the case. He is one of the “best”. Thank you so very much!
I still lack the right words to thank you. After I learned Barbie had died, I was deeply sad, shocked, confused and frightened by the unknown. You removed the fear, you made me feel safe, protected, and cared for. I thank you.
The Court finds that Mr. Galarnyk is a competent trial lawyer who achieved an excellent result in a difficult case. The Court credits Mr. Galarnyk for his success in the case, the risks involved, and the general need to encourage competent attorneys to take on civil rights cases. Mr. Galarnyk took a risk by assuming the Flaherty case on a contingency basis – the risk that he and his associates would spend many hours, over several years, and come away with nothing. Facing the potential burden of losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees, he took the case to trial and obtained a positive result for his client. He is the type of attorney the civil rights laws seek to encourage.
Asking for a recommendation from a trusted friend, relative, or busines associate is a great place to start.
Although each legal issue is different, getting a referral from someone you respect helps.
