Distinguishing Factors

All licensed lawyers are intelligent, well- educated people who must pass an arduous testing procedure and obtain a Juris Doctorate degree prior to practicing law in the State of Connecticut. Just like Attorney Gallant, many attorneys who have engaged in their profession for any appreciable length of time are seasoned and experienced advocates. There is a difference, however, in how that education and experience translate into real life situations. Does the attorney listen to you carefully and keep YOUR interests in mind or does the lawyer substitute the lawyer’s preferences for your wishes? Does the attorney explain your rights to you in a way that you understand? Do you receive practical tips and sound advice? You should be comfortable with your representative and your lawyer should be comfortable with you. We invite you to contact Attorney Gallant to see if the fit is right for both of you.

Messages from Attorney Gallant
  • “My philosophy and motivation is really quite simple. I take great personal satisfaction in helping my clients to focus upon carrying out the legal steps necessary to re-align their lives, whenever adjustment is necessary, and in guiding them to a better future.”
  • Too often, lawyers escalate situations and confuse people with legal jargon instead of listening carefully, explaining things in a comprehensive and understandable way, and working closely with a client to achieve the best available resolution for that person – whether through settlement or trial.”
  • “I always envision myself as a client – someone who is looking to understand the lay of the land in a legal world that is foreign and incomprehensible to me; someone who is seeking compensation for an injury that has hampered my well-being and lifestyle; a parent who is looking to do right by children in a divorce or legal separation; or a spouse caught in a web of financial and emotional entanglements. If I were a client, I would seek an attorney with a high level of compassion, patience, and understanding – someone who can provide me with the information necessary for me to make a sound decision and then work with me in carrying that decision out. I strive on a daily basis to provide the type of counsel and representation to my clients that I would be looking for in an attorney if I were a client.”
