Gregg Gallian is a former prosecutor who now exclusively fights for clients facing federal and state criminal allegations. These allegations range from federal violations of wire fraud, health care fraud, and drug conspiracies to state offenses of murder, family violence matters, and
everything in between.

Gregg Gallian started Gallian Firm, LLC in 2019. Gallian has tried more than 50 cases to a jury and has obtained hundreds of dismissals in state and federal courts.  His personality is infectious, and his laugh is loud and booming. But, when it comes to his clients and fighting for them, Gallian is all business. Earning their trust and achieving the best possible outcome is all that matters. “Simply put, I’m relentless”, Gallian says.

Clients say that Gallian “is the man you want in your corner amidst a storm”, an “amazing and powerful lawyer”, and “second to none”. Gallian’s reputation and glowing reviews offer a brief glimpse of the work ethic, empathy, and stellar advocacy his clients receive.


The short answer is that I love it and I’m great at it.  The long answer is that after graduating from law school, I knew I wanted to be in the courtroom.  Nowadays, civil cases hardly ever go to trial. I knew that if I wanted to be in the courtroom, I had to pursue criminal law.  After being a prosecutor with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, my passion for the courtroom only grew.  Now I get to combine two of my favorite things – helping people and the courtroom – in one job.`

Yes and no. Yes because I will never lose the understanding and appreciation of what criminal charges mean to my clients. No, because I know that when the case is in my hands no one will outwork me.  This level of dedication and case preparation is where I get my comfort amidst the anxiety.

Hard cases. As a criminal defense attorney, I live in a world of being the underdog.  I’ve learned to thrive in this arena.  When it’s time for the courtroom, I want a tough, knock-down, drag-out fight, type of case.  Those are the cases I enjoy the most. 

We handle state cases all throughout the Dallas / Forth-Worth metroplex. But we are able to handle cases outside this area as well. As far as federal cases, we focus predominantly in the northern and eastern districts of Texas. We can defend a federal criminal case anywhere in the United States, and have recently handled federal cases in Washington D.C. and Manhattan, N.Y.

Two words – Not Guilty. No better feeling in my world than hearing the jury read “Not Guilty” on the verdict form.  Take a look at some our recent winning results.

If you’re looking for representation, I suggest narrowing the list down to a few of your favorites.  Meet and question each one.  After that process, I strongly believe that my experience, passion for fighting, and strategy will make my firm the top contender.  Check out some of my client reviews, it may help you decide.

I was named Prosecutor of the Year with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office in 2015. I’ve been selected to D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in 2020 and 2021; D Magazine’s Best Lawyers Under 40 in 2021 and 2022; Texas Super Lawyers Rising Star from 2019 through 2022; and awarded the AV Preeminent Rating in 2021 for the Highest Level of Professional Excellence. There are some more but these are locally and nationally recognized as the best of the best.

My wife and I wake up at 4:30 a.m. where we hit the gym until 6 am. Coffee and news until 7.  Take my kids to school and then work for the day.  Most mornings I am in court, negotiating with prosecutors and talking with Judges.  I’m in the office most afternoons where I spend time meeting with clients and preparing a defense in their case.  Dinner.  Rest.  Repeat. I love it!

On a day-to-day basis, I love helping people.Every day I achieve a result that changes someone’s life for the better.  That feeling is addicting.  From a professional perspective, my favorite thing about being an attorney is trial – there is no better feeling than an intense cross-examination or a winning closing argument.

The most frustrating part about my job is dealing with prosecutors who refuse to believe in second chances or want to punish my client for an, oftentimes, singular mistake. I have found that persistence and relentlessness often carry the day on these cases.

If you think you need one, get one.  The earlier you hire an attorney, the more beneficial it is in the defense of your case.  Reach out and call us at (214) 432-8860. We provide a free consultation.  Even if you have hired another lawyer, we can help.

I love spending time with my wife and two kids. As a family, we love being together outside making memories in the sun and, sometimes in Texas, in the snow.  Laughter is the fuel that runs our house.

Town Hearth for the atmosphere. Bugatti’s for the food and friendship. Chuy’s for the chips and salsa. Javier’s for the cigar bar.
