About Us

In 1987, the original founding partners began a new law firm based on a core set of principles:  precise, aggressive, and relentless representation of their clients to achieve a more effective and efficient resolution of cases. These principles have been the foundation for everything Galloway Johnson Tompkins Burr & Smith stands for today.

From the first office in New Orleans, the firm has grown to include 11 offices and over 100 lawyers, with locations across the Gulf South and Midwest. Our attorneys excel 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.

The growth of Galloway over the last thirty years is a testament to the fact that our clients’ interests are being aggressively represented and properly protected.  We remain acutely focused on delivering value to the clients we represent through early case assessments, cost-containment strategies, risk transfer, and implementing the most efficient handling of any matter through early dismissal, targeted motion practice, timely dispute resolution, or trial.

Our success is evidenced by both the multiple long-term relationships developed with clients over more than thirty 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.  As result of this success, Galloway has been recognized as a Top 10-rated insurance defense firm 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.
