About Us

In 1987, four lawyers founded a firm based on a core set of principles:  the precise, aggressive, and relentless representation of their clients to achieve a more effective and efficient resolution of cases.  And these are principles that have been the foundation for everything Galloway Johnson Tompkins Burr & Smith stands for today.

From one office in New Orleans, the firm has grown to 11 offices and over 100 lawyers in locations across the Gulf South and Midwest in multiple practice areas:  insurance defense and coverage; bad faith; maritime and admiralty; energy; amusement, sports, and recreation; hospitality, entertainment, and leisure; construction; corporate transactions; employer’s liability; environmental and toxic torts; mass torts and class actions; products liability; professional liability; property insurance; public entity and civil rights; railroad litigation; real property and banking litigation; retail and restaurant litigation; subrogation; title litigation; and trucking and transportation.

Our growth is a testament to the confidence of our clients that their interests are being aggressively represented and properly protected.  And we are acutely focused on delivering value to the clients we represent through early case assessments, cost-containment strategies, risk transfer whenever appropriate, and implementing the most efficient means of concluding a matter through early dismissal, targeted motion practice, timely dispute resolution, or trial.

This is evidenced by the long-term relationships we have developed with clients over more than 30 years and the growth of our offices across the South based on the needs of our clients in jurisdictions from Texas to Florida, and now Georgia and Missouri.  These are just some of the reasons why Galloway has been Top 10-rated for insurance defense by Martindale-Hubbell, rated an Index Value 5 of 5 by the ACC, and included among A.M. Best’s Recommended Insurance Attorneys 2011-2017.
