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 multi-million dollar recoveries for our clients. Because of our proven track record, we are able to obtain the maximum compensation for our clients.

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

“The Galiher law firm has an excellent reputation among all lawyers and it is well-deserved. When attorneys from Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman 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, attorneys from the Galiher law firm are among the most prepared and most tenacious attorneys with whom I have ever dealt. They know their clients’ cases intimately. The settlements that they negotiate for clients are among the highest in the country.”
