If you are seeking legal counsel for your serious personal injury, I hope you will spend some time exploring our site. We've structured it to provide you with an overview of our Philosophy and described some of the Successes we have had.

Our
Legal Tips section provides answers to questions you might have about personal injury laws and the legal profession. I have prepared an extensive section on Michigan's No-fault Law which is must-reading for every driver in the State.

Selecting a personal injury lawyer to represent you is not an easy task. It's important that you find a attorney who has your best interests at heart and is someone you can trust and depend on. I'm proud of the relationships I have built with each of my clients. You can read a few of their personal
Testimonials to get a sense of how they feel about me and my professional capabilities. I promise the same level of commitment and dedication to you.


Your first consultation is free of charge. You may use our online Free Case Evaluation Form, but we are also very willing to meet with you in our office, visit you in your home or at the hospital. If we accept your case, we will pay all related legal expenses and expect no reimbursement until and unless we win.

Because we are a small firm, we are very selective in taking on new cases. I want to give each client professional yet personal attention. I return my calls the same day that I receive them, and I am completely forthright and open in any discussions which we have.

It is our job to serve you. We will be exhaustive in our efforts, to recover the compensation that you deserve.

About Michael J. Gallagher
I have over 35 years of experience as a trial lawyer and have represented individuals in Michigan, Illinois and California. My goal is to help relieve the suffering and worry an injury causes an individual and their family. It is a noble calling and an increasing challenge.

Many organizations and industries seek to limit or take away your rights to fair compensation. Innocent injury victims or their surviving family members deserve the right to be fairly compensated if a jury assembled from their community agrees. My dedication to ensuring your rights is powerful, thorough and fearless.

I paid for my own education. I worked in a Chicago funeral home as an Assistant Manager while attending
Loyola University and graduated in 1966 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

I then attended
DePaul University School of Law and financed my legal education by driving a city bus in Chicago and, later, working as a brakeman on the Rock Island Railroad. I received my law degree in 1968.

Immediately following graduation in 1968, I began my legal career as an Assistant Prosecutor in Champaign, Illinois. During the next two years, I had extensive trial experience including Felony Prosecution. I then transferred to a firm exclusively handling Personal Injury work for Plaintiffs and also did defense work for State Farm Insurance. Consequently, I've had experience on both sides of the Personal Injury Field and have an understanding of the Insurance Claim process.

I became licensed in Michigan in 1972 and accepted the position of Chief Assistant Prosecutor in Livingston County, Howell, Michigan. A very difficult murder case and other challenging suits extended my courtroom experience during this time period.

In 1975 I established my private practice and began to represent injured plaintiffs. As my compassion for injured clients grew, helping them obtain compensation became a driving force for me. By 1980, a significant amount of my time was being spent fighting insurance companies for seriously injured people and their families. For the past ten years, my practice has been totally devoted to personal injury cases.

To most effectively represent you and to properly prepare a successful case, I sometimes join forces with other attorneys who specialize in particular facets of personal injury law. When a case warrants it, I will pay to bring in experts from various fields. I pay the fees for these services along with the charges for depositions and other costs which help bring your case to trial. There is no cost to you unless I am successful in helping you obtain a favorable settlement.

On a personal level, my interests are varied. I’ve been active in local and civic organizations including the Brighton Chamber of Commerce, as a Board Member, and later as its Vice President. In addition, I have served on the Advisory Board for the Salvation Army.

Firm's Philosophy

Our Firm's Philosophy
Our focus is on representing victims of serious injuries and their families. Serious injury is all we do. When I take on the responsibility of your injury, I am dedicated, thorough, and fearless.

Because we are a small firm, we are very selective in taking on new cases. I want to give each client professional yet personal attention. I return my calls the same day that I receive them, and I am completely forthright and open in any discussions which we have.

To most effectively represent you and to properly prepare for a successful case, I will periodically combine forces with other attorney specialists. Additionally, I will pay for all experts and their charges, all deposition fees, and any other costs in connection with bringing your case to Trial. In the rare event that there is no recovery, I absorb those costs and there is no charge to you.

Having done insurance defense work in the past, I understand how cases are defended and bring that experience to the table in negotiating for you. If I accept your case, you will find that I am an aggressive litigator, a concerned listener, and I devote my utmost energy tirelessly working on your behalf. Submit your case to me by using our
online evaluation form. This is a free service I offer.

My firm represents plaintiffs in Wrongful Death and Personal Injury cases in the following areas:

Paralyzing Injuries Birth Trauma
Auto Accidents Cerebral Palsy
Spinal Cord Injury Dog Bites
Machine Injures Slip and Fall Injuries

Testimonials

Glen Debolt
When I was injured at work, I went to Mike Gallagher. During the almost 2 1/2 years that it took to have a Jury finally award damages, Michael was always attentive, returned my phone calls, was patient and helpful, and dedicated.

He went with me to doctors visits and worked with the doctors. He presented my case in the most favorable light and always had time for me. He was upbeat and positive, and we became good friends in the course of his representing me.

I unhesitatingly recommend him.


John Johnson
When I was injured in a severe auto accident in 1998, I didn‘t know who to turn to. I went to seek advice from a fellow who I saw advertised on TV. I never got to see Sam! The lawyer I did get filed a Suit for me but never returned my phone calls. He didn’t seem to take much of an interest in my case.

I finally called Michael Gallagher, who took the case over for me, answered all of my questions, and achieved an excellent result. Mike was always attentive, was willing to sit down and explain things to me as the case went along, and give me good advice and was always well prepared.

To anyone who is injured, I recommend Michael Gallagher as a good lawyer and helpful, dedicated professional.

Deborah Hogan
Over the course of almost 3 years of time that Michael Gallagher represented me, I found him to be a friend who was compassionate, dedicated and thorough.

He always returned my calls promptly and answered all of my questions. He came to visit me when I was in the hospital after suffering a set back of multiple sclerosis and was very supportive. He always followed up and worked closely with me and the doctors to achieve the excellent result that now allows me to own my own home, get the medical assistance I need, and relieve the worry and stress that my illness has brought to me.

He was a friend and confidant. I highly recommend him.


Amber M. Vought
When I was first injured, my Mom and I went to seek help from attorney Michael Gallagher. He was compassionate, friendly, and helpful. He always returned my phone calls and went out of his way to pursue my case.

The medical issues were difficult, my treatment was years in duration, and Michael was tireless in its presentation. He advanced the monies to bring my case to trial as well as talked with the doctors to help them understand the legal process, learn the facts of my injuries, and discuss my medical treatment.

His commitment to my case achieved excellent results for me. I recommend Michael Gallagher to anyone who has been injured.
