  • Phenomenal Attorney

    What can I say about an attorney who went above and beyond. I was fighting a Federal case for 4 years with Gal by my side he fought for me all the way. Was told I was going to serve 7 years and walked away with 2 years probation. If you want a lawyer to go to bat for you and do his job then i highly recommend Gal.

  • Got me the best possible outcome, highly recommend

    I was charged with disorderly conduct a few months ago, a misdemeanor. Having had no prior incidents with the law, this was an awful, nerve-wracking ordeal for me. After speaking with a few lawyers, I found Gal and immediately felt more at ease. He took the time to hear all of my concerns, and took my case very seriously despite it being a more minor offense. I received tremendous, realistic advice and support from him and Justyna while I awaited my court date, and ended up getting the charges completely dropped, the best possible outcome I could have hoped for. I was also very impressed with the high regard and respect the judge seemed to have for him and Justyna when I was in court. The judge definitely seemed to know them well and I got the impression he even enjoyed working with them. I would refer Gal to anyone in my situation or worse, you're definitely in great hands with this team. He's also won several awards for his work and is a legal advisor for a news outlet, further adding to his credibility.

  • Fantastic attorney

    Gal will go the extra mile for you. If you're in trouble, he should be your first choice. I'm able to live my life with my family thanks to his hard work. Highest recommendation.

  • Gal saved my life!!!

    In July 2012, I was indicted on 2 Federal charges stemming from a 5 year investigation (2007) in which I was the target of 3 governmental agencies (FBI, DEA, Cook County Sheriffs Police). I was facing 5 years in prison for being an informant's pawn. Then next 3 years were nothing short of a nightmare. I lost my job, my dignity, and almost lost my family. From day 1 of my indictment, however, my wife and I were astonished and very much satisfied by Gal's professionalism and demeanor towards the Federal prosecutors, agents, and judge. Gal became knowledgeable with my background and researched my case (5 years worth of police reports) with a fine comb. The case took approximately 2 1/2 years to go to trial and another year or so for sentencing. During that timeframe, I struggled finding employment, family issues arose, and I became mentally drained. Gal showed compassion for me and I know he truly cared for me as a person, not just a client; but he never lost focus of my case. During my trial, Gal showed passion in representing me. Gal fought till the very end, winning key motions that would have changed the dynamics of my trial & verdict. In the end, Gal beat 1 of the 2 charges. I was eventually convicted for: "making a false statement to a federal agent", and was facing up to 6 months in prison. During my sentencing hearing in April 2015, Gal again fought for me relentlessly till the very end. He fought to get me the lowest points under the Federal Sentencing guidelines. Eventually, I faced my fate; I received 6 months of probation. This case has been the most humbling experience I've ever endured in my life. I am happily employed now, spend a lot of time with my wife and children, and have my dignity again. I am forever indebted to you, Thank you Gal!

  • Excellent Attorney

    My son was charged with a,Class X Felony charge facing 9 years in prison. After hiring two attorneys who made me feel very uncomfortable I decided to hire Mr Pissetzky . He assured me that he would do everything he could to help my son and he DID! He is great, he returned my calls right away and made me feel at ease. Mr Pissetzky reduced the Class X charge to a Class,1 and was able to get my son 2 year probation plus community service. He is an awesome attorney and I will recommend him to anyone who really needs the best attorney! Thank you Mr Pissetzky for saving my son from going to prison. Also want to thank Ms Justyna Kruk for her professionalism. I highly recommend Mr. Pissetzky to anyone looking for the best!

  • Super Federal Criminal Lawyer

    When selecting an attorney, what you have to ask yourself is in whom will you trust your entire life. After I was met with lack of trust everywhere else, I selected out of town layer Gal Pissetzky to guide me and provide me with the advise I needed to overcome my legal challenge. He fought along my side and was drastically able to rescue me from the huge legal mistakes I had done. Knowing he was recognized as one of the best 100 trial lawyers in the nation made me feel a lot more comfortable. He was able to get my charges dropped and suspended my sentence. What I liked about Gal was that he was enthusiastic about my case, and always dealt with the truth--no bs like the others. His aggressive style was backed by substance and deep knowledge of trial experience--unmatched by many lawyers out there who just want to process you and find the easy way out. If you are in a position where you need a lawyer, I would be calling him right now!

  • Magnificent, impressive, very great work

    No words can express how we appreciate all the magnificent impressive, very great work you did in representing our son. Thank-you, Thank-you!

  • I knew I was done until I hired Gal

    [There are] only 2 words to describe Gal: Life Saver!! I never thought it could be done. I was in a small town where it's very rare to win drug cases. No matter what in their eyes you're guilty and I knew I was done until I hired Gal and, every time after the first court date with him, I felt like I had someone who is on my side and I felt what it felt like to have a real defense lawyer on my side. For the first time ever I felt protected. I also have priors in this same town and trust me... you do not have a chance without real defense. I also knew I couldn't trust the local lawyers. I also had been sold out in the past from trusting lawyers... so I called a federal defense lawyer and he referred me to Gal who said he takes state cases and it changed my whole case when I hired him he is a Blessing!!! And came thru like a fighting Angel like my Grandma calls him... he looks small and short but he is 10 feet tall in the court room. I just recommend anybody who wants the best turn out and the best: Gal is your man. All you have to do is pay on time and listen and do as you're told... God bless you and your family Gal, thank you for saving my life!!

  • Excellent Lawyer!

    I was looking at 6 to 9 years in prison but Gal fought for me for two entire stressful years, he was always so confident and positive of the case, at times I would be very discouraged but kept me positive and I am extremely grateful for that and for the excellent job he did. I would hire him again with out any hesitation. A million Thank yous from me and my entire family Gal!

  • Gal saved me from prison

    Gal saved me from prison. Other lawyers wanted me to become a snitch, but Gal fought for me real hard. I will recommend this lawyer for anyone!!

  • Super professional and knowlegeable lawyer!

    Mr Pissetzky was clear and direct when presenting my options. I was accused of conspiracy of commuting wire fraud, and managed to get just one year in federal prison. That, considering I am a deportable alien. Mr Pissetzky managed to extend the time until sentencing much longer than I expected. I am very grateful for that. He knows how to work with judges, and is a very respected gentlemen in his profession.

  • He saved me from jail!

    I was charged with a third-degree felony in Cook County. Although my action was passive and no one was harmed -- nor was there an intention to harm -- I was charged nonetheless, and the evidence was clearly against me. He first positioned the case to obtain a judge whom he felt would be sympathetic to my situation. He then skillfully (and I think amazingly, given my situation) worked to obtain the verdict of "not guilty." I was prepared for a "guilty" verdict and a punishment of either jail time or community service. Others told me to expect as much. I will be forever grateful to him.

  • Very highly recommended!

    “We hired Gal to represent our Son who was facing 2 aggravated armed robbery charges (mandatory 21 years each) and a class X posession charge. Our Son is 20, and had never been in prison. Horrifying and scary are putting it lightly. Gal was professional and supportive through the whole process, always returning our calls with any questions, and I know we drove him nuts at times. Our Son ended up only getting a couple of years. This was better than we could have hoped for, considering there was video of the robberies. Very highly recommended. If you have a loved one jammed up this is the best money you could spend! Thanks Gal!”

  • Highly Recommended

  • Highly Recommended

    Hands down, Gal is one of the best lawyers out there! He is very knowledgeable and extremely poised in the courtroom. He was with me every step of the way in fighting a Class A Misdemeanor for nearly 3 years. I cannot thank him enough for everything he did and getting the charge dismissed!
