Representative Testimonials

"Massey & Gail literally saved our business in a bet-the-company dispute. They were terrific in Court -- fierce when required, diplomatic when desirable, and always extraordinarily well prepared. Outside of Court (and after a successful ruling), they knew when and how to conclude the dispute on favorable terms. They were efficient and client-focused throughout."

- Lisa Turner, Chief Executive Officer, Wilbert of Birmingham, LLC

"Massey & Gail offers a unique, cost-effective, and just plan valuable approach to legal services.

“Massey and Gail have what I look for in outside counsel: smart, dynamic, responsive legal advisors who make it a point to understand my business and give me straightforward and practical advice.  In this day and age when legal budgets are under pressure, it is critical for me to rely on lawyers who understand our business imperatives and deliver in a cost-effective way.  In working with Lenny Gail, I felt like I had a partner who was aligned with our interests.”

- Roya Behnia, General Counsel, Senior Vice President, and Corporate Secretary, Pall Corporation


“Many clients think of the law as an external factor affecting their business, something that happens outside their control, like the weather. Jonathan Massey's career proves otherwise. For a general counsel with good ideas, Jonathan Massey has a track record of execution that turns ambitious goals into reality. Plus he writes like a dream and has good judgment. I recommend him for the hardest projects without reservation.”

- John Thorne, Deputy General Counsel and Senior Vice president, Verizon Communications Inc.

“Jonathan Massey is simply one of the finest appellate lawyers in the United States. I had the distinct pleasure of working with him on a series of appeals involving a question of federal law in a complex mass tort case that wound its way all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Against all odds, after Jonathan's brilliant oral argument, the Court decided in our clients' favor 9-0 on a dispositive issue and 6-3 on a secondary issue. In addition to his sheer talent, he is one of the nicest people I've ever met and extremely easy to work with. It was a pleasure not to have to deal with the kind of ultra sensitivity or egomania so many other brilliant lawyers suffer from when working with Jonathan. His prowess as a legal issues lawyer and appellate lawyer are unmatched and I would not even consider working with anyone else on a high stakes appellate matter. He's simply that good.”

- Scott Hendler, Austin, Texas


“Over the 15 years I have known Lenny Gail I have witnessed and benefited from his extraordinary knowledge of the law, exceptional ability to create innovative legal and business solutions and steadfast dedication to serving his clients every need. Since legal and business concerns constantly change, it gives me and my organization great confidence knowing that the advice we receive from Massey & Gail is sound, thoroughly scrutinized and strategically driven. When we are faced with a legal or business problem, or even when I just need a trusted voice of reason, Lenny is always the first person I call.”

- Steven Johnston, Chief Legal Officer, World Triathlon Corporation
