"Kevin O'Malley of Gallagher & Kennedy is a very thorough and competent legal professional who deserves no less than our highest praise. Kevin's expertise in the field of Governmental Procurement was needed by our company recently and thus far has been invaluable. After an initial ramp-up period, he hit the ground running as if he knew our industry intimately. He was and remains very responsive to communications regardless of their form - e-mail, phone or text. Kevin is focused and measured, even in the most stressful situations. Mr. O'Malley is able to process large volumes of information quickly and formulate an effective strategy in short order. He is personable and easily gains the trust of clients and/or the opposing side. In our short business relationship thus far, we have found Kevin to prepare compelling and well-researched briefs, motions and oral arguments. Kevin is a gifted public speaker, which has served us well in front of governmental bodies and others within the legal profession."
