About Us
Watch Massey & Gail provide expert Supreme Court commentary on The Nightly Business Report

Since its inception in 2008, Massey & Gail has been dedicated to providing clients with the highest quality legal services – from strategic advice through and including appellate review. The firm offers clients exceptional judgment, expertise, and results by bringing together two partners with a combined fifty years of experience spanning Supreme Court and appellate advocacy, civil and criminal trial work, and executive level in-house advice and counsel.

Our streamlined approach provides higher quality legal services. The firm’s lean staffing ensures that our partners are thoroughly and completely engaged in each matter. Because our knowledge is not filtered through the work of younger and less experienced attorneys, we can provide our clients with more complete and informed advice, and develop their cases with a better strategic sense.

We recognize that legal matters are business issues, and we remain keenly aware that Pyrrhic legal victories do not further our clients’ interests. Our responsibility is to identify from the outset endgame solutions and to secure them expeditiously.

We treat every case as a distinct and individual matter. We do not turn on the “auto-pilot” button upon retention, nor do we force each matter into the same cookie-cutter mold. Our experience teaches us that there are nuanced differences in the legal and factual questions presented by every case; that creative solutions are often possible; and that it is frequently feasible to identify short-cuts that will bring our clients’ disputes to resolution more easily and cheaply.
