Mike Gallagher's Bio

Mike Gallagher began his legal career as an insurance defense lawyer at Fulbright & Jaworski. After five years and a vast amount of trial experience, he joined the firm of Fisher, Roch, Blackstock, McClendon & Gallagher.

Litigation

For most of his legal career, Mike Gallagher has handled general products litigation, such as oil field explosions, aviation, and rollovers.

Legislative Leader

A tireless and influential advocate for individual rights, he has been quoted as saying, “A lawyer’s obligation to his client does not stop in the courtroom. It continues on through the legislative process.” He admirably supports his statements with action, having just returned from Austin, TX where he fights aggressively against additional devastating intrusions on individual rights. It’s a hard fight, since the opposition is financed by some of the wealthiest corporations and individuals in the State of Texas. He receives no compensation for his time or his expenses, nor does he believe he should. He is backed by his own commitment.

Texas Governor, Rick Perry, recently called Mike Gallagher “an honorable man” and even most of his opponents would admit a grudging respect for this adversary.
