    Very thorough and empathetic.

    She was hired for consultation concerning a custody battle. She provided detailed and precise information for my areas of concern. She really helped to ease the burden of this very difficult issue.

    Prenuptial consult

    I met with Lauren Checki to discuss the potential need for a prenuptial agreement at 8 AM on a Saturday which is nearly unheard of. My now husband is a restaurateur with multiple LLCs and owns a home. I own multiple homes with renters and 1 LLC. The protection of assets was very important especially having little knowledge of how we could be affected in a community property state. Ms. Checki was able to provide an adequate timeline for when prenuptial or even postnuptial agreements should be filed, what they could and could not include, and generally give me a well rounded education on the subject matter. With the information she provided, we were able to make calculated decisions that will impact us and our businesses for the rest of our lives. The piece of mind she provided made our bid day that much more special having all of the cards on the table like that.

    The Best

    My consultation with Ms. Checki immediately instilled confidence. She answered all of my questions and gave me relatable examples and insights. She was also very generous with her time. I've talked to lawyers outside her firm and they deeply respect her work.

    He returns calls & he cares!

    We live in Texas and had a problem with a service provider with our home in Louisiana. Galen Hair called me back and not an assistant was a great start. My husband's schedule is difficult and he worked around our time and the July 4th weekend. He answered my questions and I felt ready to deal with the service provider. Everything finally worked itself out because the service provider looked up Galen Hair, knew we meant business and heard he was good. We still have that home in Louisiana and if ANYTHING should come up in the future, Galen Hair will be the first person I'm calling.

    A lawyer I can count on

    Mrs. Checki helped me get through a very difficult time with my child's father. She was extremely understanding, patient, and trustworthy. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and understand what was going on! I would absolutely recommend her services.

    Very effective negotiator

    Galen has proven his mettle negotiating our debt collection issues over time, and has settled almost everything pre-litigation. I have no qualms recommending to others.

    A difficult situation made easier

    I retained Lauren's services for a child support/custody issue I was having with my son's father. Over the years we have gone back and forth to court several times and have never been able to come to amicable agreements. Lauren was kind, patient, and knowledgeable in our situation. She took the time to work with me on stressful and difficult issues, and used her knowledge to successfully negotiate several important points in our case. Thanks to her, we now have an agreement everyone can live with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

    Ms. Checki is dedicated to her clients!

    Ms. Checki represented me in court in dealing with irresponsible landlords. She was absolutely fantastic. Not only did she truly listen, she went above and beyond in her representation. She kept me aware of every step along the way with what she was doing, and what I should expect. I highly recommend Ms. Checki to anyone who might need representation.

    Knowledgeable and Informative Attorney

    Galen handled FDCPA lawsuits for the debt purchasing and collection agency I worked for. I was his primary contact at our office regarding these matters and interacted with him on a weekly, sometimes daily basis for the past 3 years. Galen is very knowledgeable on every aspect of the FDCPA and is a skilled negotiator. When asked questions, he always gave options and took the time to explain the law and reasoning behind his recommendation. I would also occasionally request legal advice on personal matters and Galen was always willing to offer a recommendation and point me in the right direction.

    Professional and Knowledgable

    Galen Hair has been instrumental in consulting my small but growing business on myriad legal issues ranging from contracts to intellectual property. While Galen is incredibly knowledgable, he's willing to refer you to other resources if a topic falls outside of his specialties -- a quality that is rare in most lawyers I've met with. If you're looking for a courteous and professional lawyer with a range of skills, you won't go wrong with Galen.

    Could not have chosen a better lawyer.

    In 2011, I partnered with several individuals to purchase a health care company. I obtained 40 percent of the shares and was the majority shareholder. Unfortunately, with this percentage I also had very little control of the company. I contacted Mr. Hair and explained to him what had taken place over the last year. He asked me what I wanted out of the company. I explained to him that I wanted complete control of the company and I want the two of the shareholders out of the company because of illegal activities. After reviewing my case, Mr. Hair invited me back to his office for a meeting to give me a game plan and the cost. He felt certain that we could win the case if I decided to hire him. At that point I had nothing to lose because I had no control of a company which I claimed ownership. Mr. Hair proceeded with the litigation and the shares were offered back to me and I gained control of the company as it was intended.

    Proudly I speak of this attorney because of his knowledge, skills and abilities. He was very persistent and went out of his way to research my line of business to insure that I received the most accurate information. Because I was so happy with the actions of Attorney Hair, I asked him to represent me in the purchase of another healthcare company. I am pleased to say that Mr. Hair responded quickly and made sure that the purchase of the new company was legit. Attorney Hair has my stamp of approval and I am certain anyone seeking an attorney to represent them will not be disappointed in the services that Attorney Hair will provide.

    Recent Litigation Client

    Mr. Hair quickly and efficiently resolved a contract issue that arose in our small business a little over a year ago. From start to finish, he was very attentive to our needs and objectives. Mr. Hair is a sharp attorney and we will certainly be using him again.

    I'm glad to have Galen Hair as my lawyer!

    Galen Hair was an excellent lawyer on my case. His research was thorough and extensive. We went to court well-prepared to fight the battle. He spent considerable time preparing me prior to the court date so that I would know what to expect when placed on the stand. After we won the case, he set up a manageable payment plan with me so that I could pay off the well-earned fees without breaking the bank. He is always willing to provide me extra information or consultation that I may need. I am sure to recommend everyone I know to him so that they are comfortable knowing that their lawyer is working hard for the case.

    Mr. Hair saved us a significant amount of money by arguing some contract discrepancies. VHC Law prevented our license from being revoked wrongfully. He has also helped us settle some sizeable debt.

    Great Guy, Very Helpful

    He has been helping me with a sensitive employment discrimination issue. He is responsive. He always answers the phone or has someone call me back. His partners are nice too. When I came to him, I didn't even know if I could sue. Now we have a federal lawsuit and he emails me every time something new happens to let me know. I would reccomend him to anyone.
