Carol L. Gallagher, Esquire, has been representing vaccine injured clients in Vaccine Court, nationwide, for 24 years. Ms. Gallagher currently assists in guidance regarding religious exemptions from vaccination for employees, students grades k-12, college students and others.

Ms. Gallagher began law school as a mother of three children ages two, nine and eleven.

"I can sit here and write you a book about how hard she works for her clients. Long story short All around great lawyer highly recommended" Anonymous
"Phyllis Widman, and staff, after years of continuous working on my behalf, keeping in touch with me every step of the way, for years, was happy to inform me that we had won the case. It wasn't easy, but she never gave up. Always answering my emails, and on top of my case. If you are looking for someone you can trust, and have faith in her and her team, will try very hard to get the right and fair results for you." Jim S.
"I hired Phyllis Widman to assist me with the denial of my religious exemption for the COVID vaccine and employment termination by my employer. Phyllis was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained to me about my legal rights and the legal process. I found her to be very efficient, organized, and passionate about her work and I especially liked that she really cared about me as a person and truly wanted what was best for me. I am very grateful to say, I did have a successful outcome. The religious exemption denial was overturned and I am back to work. I highly recommend Phyllis Widman." Kimberly R.
"Phyllis and her team took care of everything after my injury. When I was hurt, I was unsure who to speak to, as I'm quite young and typically "let things go." After a few recommendations and the first phone call I knew I was in good hands. I don't know where I'd be right now if I didn't make that simple first phone call. A thank you just isn't enough, but thank you so so much for what your firm does." Anonymous
"My experience with Phyllis Widman was excellent. I know that I would not have had the successful outcome that I did without the expertise and specialty training of Phyllis Widman. Phyllis worked tirelessly to make sure that my concerns were addressed, and my needs were met. Phyllis is extremely personable, friendly, comforting and very relatable. She is so well versed in the field of vaccine injury law. I am extremely fortunate to have found Phyllis for my case and would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a truly compassionate professional." Kristen M.
