Proven Track Record in the Court Room

We have a proven track record as trial lawyers. Our opponents know that our attorneys are not afraid to go to trial. They know that we have extensive trial experience with over 250 jury verdicts, and we have obtained many multimillion dollar recoveries for our clients. Because of our proven track record, we are able to obtain the maximum compensation for our clients.

“Galiher DeRobertis Waxman was one of the first law firms in the country to investigate and try large groups of asbestos cases against asbestos companies. When they went to trial in their first case, Gary Galiher was virtually the only lawyer representing his clients against the lawyers from large law firms all trying to defeat him. But the team embraced their”David vs. Goliath” role. The Galiher law firm not only won that first case, but went on to have the same success in future trials. They are terrific trial lawyers.”

Honesty and Integrity

We pride ourselves in developing and maintaining our reputation for honesty and integrity. Judges respect our commitment to our clients and our resourcefulness and determination in the courtroom. Even our adversaries acknowledge our professionalism and commitment. Judges and other lawyers know that they can rely on our word about any aspect of our cases.

“The Galiher law firm has an excellent reputation among all lawyers and it is well-deserved. When they give their word or make any representation, it can be relied upon. Other lawyers know it– and so do judges.”

Outstanding Results

Our firm is also known for our outstanding results. When we take a case to trial, we obtain multi-million dollar verdicts. When we settle a case out of court, we are able to get top dollar. Often, our settlements are so high that the defendants insist that the total dollar amount must be confidential, because they do not want the amount to be known publicly.

“As the national coordinating counsel for a defendant in asbestos litigation, I negotiate regularly with plaintiff lawyers from around the country. Without a doubt, the Galiher law firm is one of the most prepared and most tenacious with whom I have ever dealt. Even top management knows the details of client cases intimately. The settlements that they negotiate for clients are among the highest in the country.”
