"Dana Gallup is an extremely savvy attorney. He not only provides you with key information about your issue, but he most importantly provides decisive solutions. I personally had one of the most tumultuous employment cases that I anyone could possibly be involved in and I was not clearly in the right, but Mr. Dana Gallup was able to see through all of our opponents tricks and fought for my rights with what seemed to be effortless professionalism. He most importantly treated me like an individual, not just as another client.
