Thank you for seeing us. This is long overdue—but I am grateful….hopefully we never need you, but do appreciate your excellent advice and direction….Sincerely,
Dear Chris, I can’t thank you enough for the time and energy you spent guiding our family through the scary process of finding representation for my nephew. Your kindness, perspective and experience did so much to comfort everyone during a terribly stressful time.
Chris, thank you for everything you have done for my son. I have extremely high praise for every call, appearance, kind words and your many hours on his case. Thank you and have a peaceful holiday.
Chris, I can’t thank you enough for helping us. I described you to my friends and family as “the Michael Jordan” of defense attorneys. After seeing you in action I know I wasn’t wrong. I appreciate and respect you tons. Always,
Dear Jane, I wanted to send you a great BIG THANK YOU once again, for your expert and expedient handling of my case. Please accept my gratitude & acknowledgements, not only for your legal acumen, but for your professional reputation that must certainly precede you in the courts.
Dear Jane, I want to thank you for your support, guidance and amazing representation. I have learned so much through this experience and have come through as a much more educated and strong woman. You are one amazing woman and I’m inspired by you. Please let Chris know he was also such a help for me during that time. You and your team are truly the best.
Dear Chris, We cannot find the words to properly thank you for all you have done for M. and for our family. You knew all along the exact course to take to bring M. to the outcome that took place last Friday. C. once made the remark to you that you were like a father to her. This is the greatest compliment that I can give a person. My father was a very special individual and he always made me feel safe and secure. That is how you made us feel through this process; a process that to us was extremely stressful and quite terrifying. You always had a calming effect on all of us. Chris, this past year without a doubt has been the most difficult year of our lives. You gave us hope throughout. You feel like family to us now and we will be forever grateful for your competence, care, and sound advice. May God richly bless you and your family.

Thank you again,
I wanted to thank you for all you did for me. You will never know how much I appreciated you and the dignity and compassion you showed me.Big Hugs
Dear Chris, Words can hardly express how grateful I am for your help these past few months and last several years. To know that you understand my passion and have fought for me when I could not is seared in my heart. You are like a father to me, guiding me, protecting me, and giving me wings to fly when I need them. Plain and simple, you are a God Send, a God – Father if you will.
Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. You all have allowed me to maintain hope in a dark place!
I wanted to thank you for all your help this past year. I am especially grateful to have my computers back. The pictures and other data on there are invaluable and irreplaceable. Thank you for enabling me to get my life back.
Chris, I know I don’t have much experience with the law and lawyers but from the moment I met you I could easily tell you were on of the best. You are one of the smartest and most wise men I have ever met. You are truly a master of your art. thank you so much for helping me out in this situation. Words can’t describe my gratitude. I learned a lot from you. Again thank you my friend.
Steve, My wife and I want to thank you for seeing our daughter. Your visit boosted her morale. It was very kind for you to do that and it means so much to us. You have provided great counsel to our daughter and we are glad we chose you and your firm. It is hard seeing her go through this and we just hope this process does not break her. She is an exceptional person who made a stupid mistake. We are doing all we can do to support her. Thanks,
My family and I sincerely thank you for all the time you invested in our case. You offered wonderful advice and you were there when we needed you. But most of all, you gave us peace of mind. Should we ever need your help in the future, we know where to go. You are FANTASTIC!!!!Very Appreciatively,
Jane, Thank you so much for all of your help! I know it took a lot of time to decipher all of the facts pertaining to L’s case. Please accept our two favorite wines from our favorite winery, as a small token of appreciation. Not only do L and I appreciate your help, his children, grandchildren, and wife do as well. We need more people like you in our society to stand up whenever injustice occurs, and to be a voice for a the voiceless.

Chris, Thank you very much for guiding R— through the maze of pot laws. You’re one of the great ones!
Chris and Jane, I cannot thank you both enough. You have been in my corner for every step of the way. I couldn’t have done it without you. My graduating college is, in part, due to your aid. I’ll be seeing you both soon enough to begin my expungement! Woo! Thank you, with love.
Angel, Steve and Chris, You have changed the course of my family’s lives, and saved us from the unimaginable. We will all be truly eternally grateful. In the most trying and devastating of circumstances, there is absolutely no better a place to be. Your most astounding quality was the level of genuine care, warmth and emotional support during this time.Truly the absolute best, the ONLY representation to consider. Your experience and knowledge is without comparison, and your standing in the legal community is priceless. You have been the brightest of lights in what were the darkest of circumstances, and have triumphed with highest accolades imaginable.

Facing the possibility of a DUI conviction in my future, I retained Steve Gallenson, as counsel, after spending the night in jail. Finding myself in an unfamiliar and stressful place I had never been before, I relied on his easy-going persona, kindness and ultimate support in reassuring me that the journey would be worth the outcome. During the whole time, he listened to my concerns, imparted his wisdom of the process and gave me solace. I knew I was in good hands. I never felt disconnected or in any way unsure of the next step as he made the most difficult moments seemingly resolve themselves. He is the most proactive attorney I have ever known. With a most courteous and upbeat office staff and most friendly and helpful assistant, that could not have been more professional and knowledgeable of what was going to transpire next, I never felt apprehensive in making decisions to moving ahead.I am extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend Steve, and will, to anyone in need of his services. Steve displayed integrity, honesty and competence beyond my wildest imagination. At every juncture, along the way, he seemed to always be in charge of the situation that made me feel a resolve was always imminent. When needed, he was tenacious in presenting the facts and relied heavily on his knowledge of the law to be one step ahead, making the outcome measureable. He WON the case! Hands down – the best!
Dear Jane, Thank you so much for your time. Words cannot express my gratitude!! Your kindness toward my husband is also very appreciated. Thank you for everything.Dear Jane, Thank you so much for your time. Words cannot express my gratitude!! Your kindness toward my husband is also very appreciated. Thank you for everything.

A parent’s worst nightmare…Finding an attorney to represent your 12 year old child in a Criminal case. Steve Gallenson was referred to me by a good friend who is a liability attorney. He said Steve was the best…that turned out to be so true. Steve met with us, took time to explain how things should play out. He made us feel comfortable in what to expect in this turbulent time. He was quick to return a call and make himself available personally. We had the benefit of Steve’s knowledge and relationships where he was able to call Private investigators, and do in depth research to prove my child innocent. He knew the judges, and let us know their compassions and how they might rule. We had a 4 month intense relationship with Steve during this process and always felt he was there for us with reassuring words and knowledge. I highly recommend Steve Gallenson. He exuded confidence and is held in high regard among his peers. We noticed this while waiting outside the courtrooms, that DA’s, judges, and personnel would go out of their way to come up and chat with Steve.A parent’s worst nightmare…Finding an attorney to represent your 12 year old child in a Criminal case.
