Welcome to the Gallagher Law Group, PC.
Philadelphia Area Employment Lawyer - What Do We Do?
At the Gallagher Law Group, PC, we are committed to representing individuals across the range of workplace rights issues, from handling litigation matters involving discrimination, retaliation, FMLA leave, overtime and non-compete agreements, to administrative hearings relating to unemployment compensation or government employee rights. In addition, John has substantial experience in breach of contract litigation involving small businesses and the like.
Who is John A. Gallagher?
Firm President John A. Gallagher is an experienced employment law attorney who has been been practicing law since 1991. He has receioved many accolades from his peers, and the legal community in general, and enjoys a "Superb" rating (10 out of 10) from lawyer rating service Avvo.
What Are John's Typical Fees?
Most of the Firm's employment litigation cases are Contingent Fee cases filed in the Federal Court in Philadelphia. That means we don't get paid unless we win! We handle unemployment compensation hearings for a flat fee. For cases in state courts, which are frequently of the breach of contract variety, John provides "flat fee" billing (as opposed to billing by the specific hour for each task performed). This provides cost predictability to clients, and encourages communications between John and his clients, who do not have to worry about being "nickle and dimed" every time they feel the need to reach out to John for guidance or discussion.
John's YouTubes and Blog - Real Answers in Plain Speaking Terms
John's YouTube videos, "How To" and "Did You Know" guides for the everyday worker, have had tens of thousands of views since July 2010. In these videos, John attempts to truly address the substance of a number of important legal principles.
Over the past 5 years or so, John has spent many hours preparing in-depth articles for his Blog, Employmentlaw101. Unlike many legal Websites and Blogs, which he considers to be light on meaningful content and designed primarily to cause readers to initiate contact with the lawyer to get their questions answered, John's Blog represents a sincere attempt to supply in-depth and easy to understand explanations of legal principles commonly encountered by its readers.
Where is the Firm Located?
In October 2014, John moved his office from Paoli to his home in Malvern, PA, which is in Chester County (+/- 20 miles west of Philadelphia, 5 miles south of King of Prussia Mall, 5 miles east of West Chester). He takes meetings and conducts litigation-related tasks (i.e. depositions, settlement conferences, etc.) at any one of a number of Regus locations (Berwyn, Exton, Conshohocken, King of Prussia, Newtown Square, Blue Bell, Philadelphia, etc.) This approach makes his work accessible to him at all hours, while cost-effectively reducing overhead to make his services more affordable.
While we are certainly glad that you found John's website, it is his Blog that will provide one with the greatest insight into John's experience, knowledge and reputation - and it will likely address any questions about the law you may have as well!
