I felt that I was in good hands with Woody Thompson from Gallagher & Kennedy. His assistants, Bella and Rosa were equally amazing. I felt that I had a good understanding of my choices and situation. The firm did not make poor recommendations that net them more money, they had my best interests in mind.

Environmental Law

Gallagher & Kennedy (G&K) is the Company’s principal environmental counsel in Arizona and New Mexico and provides legal support on environmental matters in other states. G&K also provides representation in the areas of toxic tort, discovery, government relations, and general litigation. The lawyers in the environmental practice group are a very valued and long-standing part of our legal team. They have an intimate knowledge of federal, Arizona and New Mexico environmental regulations and a good working relationship with state regulators. They provide a high level of client service and attention, strengthened by a deep understanding of the Company’s business and operations. In the litigation area, there is a deep bench of lawyers and support staff. While we work extensively with all the environmental group attorneys at G&K, the primary lead attorneys on our matters are Dave Wallis, Stan Curry, Lee Decker, Dave Kimball, Dal Moellenberg, Chris Leason, Brad Glass, and Bill Underwood.

Both attorneys that we use are very knowledegable in their fields. They answer our direct questions and go beyond our direct questions where more advice is appropriate. They both speak in plain English, not complicated legaleeze. The labor/employment attorney sometimes sends us appropriate language samples to use in dealing with employee issues.

Dave Lock Grand Canyon State Electric Cooperative Association, Inc.

Corporate Law

Our agency was dealing with political, accounting, and legal challenges. Our attorneys with Gallagher & Kennedy made themselves available literally 24/7 to address the continual new issues that surfaced over many months. Without their guidance and continual support, while maintaining a positive and professional approach, I am not sure we would have been successful in getting our business back on the right path.

Corporate Law

We have worked with Gallagher & Kennedy for more than 25 years and have had nothing but excellent service and representation. They are always the "best attorneys in the room", which provides us with a distinct advantage in contentious situations. I cannot imagine working with any other firm.

Paul Amick PhoenixSoft

Robin Orchard Orchard Medical Consulting

Environmental Law

It has been my experience of working with G&K for over two decades, that their attorneys provide a high degree of integrity, expertise and legal insight that helps me to make informed decisions day to day on a wide range of environmental challenges.

T.J. Raica Apache Nitrogen Products, Inc.

Mergers & Acquisitions Law

Several things stand out from my experience working with the M&A team at G&K: 1. Expertise - the team had the knowledge and practical experience to walk me through my options at every step of the acquisition process; 2. Responsiveness - while the opposing lawyers would take two weeks to turn around a document, the M&A team at G&K would do it in half the time, would be more thorough, and would anticipate potential obstacles and develop strategies to streamline the process; and 3. Cost-Effectiveness - G&K communicates incredibly well internally and would have only those people in meetings that were necessary and then would bring the rest of the team up to speed accordingly. They spent my money like it was their money, suggesting at times during negotiations when it was more efficient sit and wait because they understood the pace, timing, and critical components of the deal.

Steve Schramm Optumuas

DUI/DWI Defense

I'll never retain or recommend any one else

Evan Larson

Environmental Law

David Kimball with G & K is by far one of the most impressive attorneys that I have ever worked with. His knowledge and sophistication is invaluable plus he gets the job done. Would highly recommend David or Stuart to anyone dealing an environmental issue. David has decades of experience working in the State of Arizona which was a huge plus for my work with the firm. If I ever need to hire another attorney for anything, I will look at G & K before any of the other law firms in Arizona.
