    While I didn't use Galen during my initial divorce proceedings (I wish I had!), he helped me with some post-modifications and was awesome. He was very quick to return calls and emails and give clear and helpful advice. If I need to revisit anything divorce-related in the future I will be giving him a call. Recommended!

    Mr. Gentry performed our business entity formation work for a flat fee. He told us precisely what it would cost prior to starting the work. He told us how long it would take to complete the work. This was helpful because as a new business we wanted to keep close track of our start up costs. Later, we used Mr. Gentry for a lawsuit. Instead of billing us hourly he was able to quote fees for specific services. He kept us abreast of what was happening in our matters and returned our calls.
