Parents pay attention! Tim Galluzzi is a great lawyer, especially when your child has a serious issue – like a potential DUI. I’m very grateful, as is my child, for Tim’s dedication, guidance and honesty. Plus, he is very affordable, which is hard to find with such an excellent professional. I’d highly recommend Tim!

I am writing this review because I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I had a fraud case involving a home purchase. I chose Kevin Cheney to handle my case. Kevin was a “hands on” type of attorney. He drove all the way from Denver to my Greeley home to view my situation first hand. He was exceptional at taking in all the information I provided him with, remembering even the smallest of details of that information, and then articulating that information accurately and effectively. He’s smart, quick on his feet, and a great communicator. He really worked the case hard, did not allow things to “drag” out, and gave us his full attention and time…you’ve got to appreciate that. If you want someone smart, who will fight hard for you to bring about the best possible outcome, Kevin is definitely your man!

Kevin & Cheney Galluzzi & Howard (Cheney Galluzzi & Howard) the best and easiest to work with! They are a young new firm and we were referred to by a different layer because this one was a CAR ACCIDENT which let me tell you all know they are terrible but Kevin always asked my wife and I if we were ok each time we talked! They have a strong passion for the law and doing what’s right. Kevin took our car accident case right away which was already been in the works by my wife for 3 months! Kevin played hard ball for four days on line and on the phone with both insurance companies and we won! I don’t know anything about law Kevin explained every step of the process and was very up front and kept it simple the whole way through! I would highly recommend them to any one in need of even a question, to this day he will respond to my wife’s emails! Thanks Jon and Leigh

Tim Galluzzi is the man. I trust him with any legal matter I may have. He helped me look into hospital bills that I wasn’t sure was legal when I happened to have a bad night and woke up in the hospital. Then I ran into legal trouble and Mr. Galluzzi gave me the legal advice I needed to head in the right direction. He also represented me and got me the best possible outcome I could have gotten for my particular case. He was straight forward about what the process was going to be and what possible outcomes there were. What I appreciate most is that he is no BS, straight to the point, and steers you in the right direction. I will always go to him for legal advice and recommend him and his Law Firm to any family or friend who may need legal help. Thank you Tim, for everything. I appreciate it.

I had an issue with an error on our credit report for our business and Tim was so on it. Within just a few hours he was able to get the company to send the corrected info to the reporting bureaus to have them remove it. I am so thankful to him for helping solve this issue and doing it so quickly. It would have taken me months to accomplish this. I would highly recommend Tim if you need things done quickly, efficiently and professionally.

I strongly recommend his services to anybody in need.

If you’re hesitant about using Kevin & Cheney Galluzzi & Howard (Cheney Galluzzi & Howard) don’t be at all. You might think they are a young new firm but I assure you they are far from it as they are nothing short of “Bull Dogs” in the court room. They have a strong passion for the law and doing what’s right. Kevin took my civil case against a startup company I work for where I got cut out of the project. I thought I had rights to my work and Kevin confirmed that. I was the little dog in a big fight as Kevin took on one of the largest firms in Denver, one that takes multimillion dollar cases, and a startup owner with very deep pockets. Kevin played hard ball for four days in the court room and in the end we won. I don’t know anything about law and had never filed a lawsuit, never thought I would ever have to. Kevin explained every step of the process and was very up front. Kevin & Cheney Galluzzi & Howard conveyed confidence as a team the moment I walked through the door. Kevin did an amazing job of prepping me for me deposition, direct and cross examination, trained me on iterating key points and phrases, as well on how to work through the evidence when I was on the stand. We practiced several times to insure I was fully prepared for trial. Kevin pushed me as a client to know and understands everything leading up to trail so that I can be the best witness in my own case. This is only because they are that passionate about the law. I would highly recommend them to anyone. If you believe your fight might end up in a court room this is the team you want on your side. Regardless your reasons for looking for a lawyer give Cheney Galluzzi & Howard a call and talk with them, hear what they have to say about your issue.

Nobody usually wants to be in a position to hire an attorney, but I can’t say enough about how at ease I felt with Kevin and Tim immediately! They both walked me through processes with reassurance and professionalism. Kevin was super prompt in responding to all my communications even after he had wrapped up my case. The firm was also the most reasonable & honest that I found, and I interviewed 5 lawyers before choosing Cheney Galluzzi & Howard. I highly recommend!

I am a family law attorney who works in the same building as Kevin and Tim. I called them late one afternoon for assistance with a friend for criminal charges. Tim was extremely helpful in explaining the issues. They took the case right away and Kevin appeared in court the early the next morning. The client was scared but Kevin took the time to explain everything and ease the client’s fears. Kevin argued very well and got the client a great deal. As an attorney who frequently deals with “bad” attorneys, I am extremely picky when it comes to retaining other attorneys. Kevin and Tim are fantastic, easy to talk to, professional, and highly efficient. They both have a strong understanding of their field. I highly recommend using Kevin and Tim. Call them and see if you feel better after the conversation. I bet you will.

Can’t say enough good things about Tim and his office! I met with several lawyers before deciding to go with Tim. Not only was their billing the most fair practice, from the moment I met with him, Tim made me feel good about my case, and confident that he would do everything possible to get the best outcome. He always kept me well informed, and kept me feeling hopeful everything would turn out fine. I was facing life changing charges. Case Dismissed, it doesn’t get any better than that! These guys are amazing at what they do, don’t hesitate to give them a call and do a consult!

I recently hired Kevin to help me deal with an issue I had with my ex-landlord. I was under a lot of stress since I didn’t know how to deal with what I was going through and Kevin helped put my mind at ease as he would respond to all of my email and phone calls in a matter of minutes. I was very blessed to have found Kevin. I was able to get my issues resolved and I never even had to deal with my landlord again. I am a very very happy client!

I’ve known Tim as a friend, law student, and fellow practicing attorney for nearly six years. I hired Tim to help me in a tricky and time-sensitive landlord/tenant dispute. I called Tim because I knew he was talented and passionate. I explained the situation to him and he worked with me to write a demand letter to the landlord explaining the legal issues with their actions and the horrible position I had been placed in as a result. I’m not very familiar with this area of law myself but Tim knew right away how to handle my issue, talked me through it, and even welcomed my input without acting like he knew better (even though he did!). I felt I could trust Tim from the first minute we started talking about my case and, despite being a young attorney, I knew he would do whatever it took. Fortunately, he got me a successful outcome within just a few days. I could have tried to handle the issue myself and would have only succeeded in spending unnecessary time and emotional energy. Instead, I put the matter in Tim’s hands and immediately felt a sense of relief. I was kept updated at all times and was consulted at every stage of the process. If I ever run into another issue requiring a skilled, competent, and friendly attorney in my corner, I will turn to Tim and Cheney Galluzzi & Howard. I recommend the same to anyone who thinks they have been wronged or just has a question about their rights.

Kevin was excellent in handling our case with our previous landlord. Our original security deposit was $1700 and when we decided to move out she tried to only give us back $192 from that original deposit. She was using this money for regular wear and tear in the house and didn’t have any evidence to back up her claims that we “damaged her house and forced her into expensive repairs.” We sent her a demand letter for $1200 letting her know that if she did not comply then we would be taking her to court. After a couple weeks she eventually caved in and paid us back the money we deserved. Kevin did a great job throughout the whole process and was very thorough with us and our previous landlord. I would highly recommend him for any legal issues you may run into.
