John Gilroy represented me on a complex and protracted DUII case. He was proactive, responsive, and persistent in his pursuit for an excellent outcome and, he kept me informed every step of the way. He holds himself and his team to a high standard. They were all wonderful to work with. It was obvious that he is well respected in the legal community and in the court system as well. It is my sense that this is the culture of the whole Gilroy | Napoli | Short Legal Team. John is a genuine and sincere person with a strong command of the legal process. He truly cared about me and my case, and he went above and beyond to ensure that we achieved the best possible outcome. I am so grateful to have had him represent me. Jeff Napoli worked a bit with us on this case and he is equally exceptional. John and his team made a very difficult experience manageable and I highly recommend this group of outstanding professionals.J.S.
We want to thank you for the professionalism which you handled the petition to the Superior Court to restore my firearms rights in Oregon. The work you put into preparing the presentation and briefing me on what to expect was very comprehensive and made our successful outcome possible. In spite of the judge not being an advocate of firearms ownership, you had all the ducks lined up and the hearing went very well. Shawn, you are a great asset to the Short Law Group! We'll be recommending SLG in the future if the occasion arises.Kerrigan G.
I chose John Gilroy for legal representation and could not have made a better choice. He was always available for questions, provided excellent feedback, and put my mind at ease.Ryan Y.
Jason Short went far and beyond the call of duty when I needed help with a legal matter in May 2010. His responses to my questions were extremely fast — usually getting answers to my messages/emails within the same business day. I initially made a few contacts with some other lawyers, but decided to trust all of my business to Mr. Short, and not because of the "best rates/fees" (which were more or less on par with other law firms), but because of Jason's willingness to go the extra mile for me.John H.
Mr. John Gilroy was recommended to me when I was seeking counsel. I trusted the recommendation and was represented by Mr. Gilroy. This decision was one of the biggest and most important decisions I have ever made. Thankfully, the smartest. My life could look very much different than it does today but with the help of Mr. Gilroy, my future looks very bright. He had great knowledge of the court system, it's process, was open and honest along the way and was able to provide first class representation. He was very direct and realistic while being encouraging the entire way. The legal advice was the best I have had.Ryan S.
After a DUI arrest, I was distraught. The thought of losing my job and driving privileges in a difficult economy were overwhelming and led to many sleepless nights. If I wanted any semblance of a successful outcome, I needed an attorney who could perform miracles. Mr. Short and his staff were courteous, professional and possessed a winning attitude that I desperately needed to save my career. They worked tirelessly to meet my critical time line, reduce my charges and restore my driving privileges. I am proud to call Jason Short my lawyer.Allen B.
I hired John Gilroy for my DUI case and I can't thank him enough for doing an excellent job.Sheldon B.
Jason and his staff negotiated hard for me over several months in 2009-2010 with excellent results. His people skills and knowledge of the DA's office were amazing. He made a nightmare go away, and I carry his card in my wallet to this day.Maria R.
I used John Gilroy with Gilroy & Napoli to represent me in a very complex and multi-faceted case after a bad experience with a different lawyer/law firm (whom I dismissed). I travelled from Hawaii to deal with my case and made a point to interview several different firms. I felt instantly comfortable with John and his staff and never felt judged or looked down upon. Since I live across the Pacific Ocean and am not in state to deal with this legal matter, finding the right lawyer and firm was essential. My requirements were the following: knowledge of the law, loads of experience, amicable connections, excellent communication, likability, cost and ability to think outside the box. John Gilroy far exceeded my expectations on all accounts. His resume, experience and knowledge of the legal system are outstanding and his contacts and connections saved me both time and money. The amount I saved from his thinking outside of the box and directing me clearly on what to do covered more than his fees; I ended up saving money by using Gilroy and Napoli. He’s also a very nice guy. This may not seem important; however, having a lawyer who has a good reputation among his peers and colleagues is necessary. Many lawyers will reference that they know everyone in the system, but he genuinely does. His professional history outlines it and my experience proves it. I highly recommend John Gilroy and Gilroy & Napoli.Lia Mahoney Powers
When I came to Mr. Short, I had never needed to be represented by an attorney, so I was nervous, scared and unsure of what to do. Mr. Short helped me in feeling comfortable with the legal process. He can easily reference the law and explain in detail what the law means. I am thankful for being represented by such a knowledgeable attorney, who was well-known and able to work with prosecutors to ensure a fair hearing. I will always turn to Mr. Short if need be in the future. Thank you.Aimee K.
I feel very fortunate to have been represented by attorney Jason Short. His knowledge, experience and attention to detail were instrumental in the favorable outcomes of my cases, both at the DMV hearing where the license suspension was rescinded and full driving privileges were maintained and at the trial for DUII where I was found not guilty by a jury vote of 6-0. The firm was personable and supportive throughout the entire process and worked very hard on my behalf.Mike P.
If I could give them 6 stars, I would! I hired John Gilroy to represent me on a complex DUI case with charges in two separate counties. He did a fantastic job, and the outcome couldn't have been better. This is what I loved about working with John: (1) He was very available and responsive regarding emails or calls, despite having a busy schedule. (2) He was very thorough and persistent in obtaining the most favorable outcome for me. (3) He was kind, respectful, and sensitive to the difficult emotions I was going through being in this legal situation. (4) He inspired calm, confidence and class. I highly highly recommend John and his firm.Anca I.
Jason Short has a great deal of experience and does every thing in his power to ensure the best possible outcome for his clients. Jason Short and Chris Trotter did a great job convincing the District Attorney to drop all charges against me before the trial date. It was a pleasure working with Jason and Chris. Over the past 40 years I have worked with many professionals. Jason and Chris are two of the most genuine, sincere, caring persons I have had the opportunity to work with. They are honest, hard working men and have a great spirit about them. I highly recommend the firm.Steve
My special needs son found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people and received a citation for possession of a controlled substance. We quickly realized the need for a lawyer to guide us through the traumatic experience of court and penalties for my son. We chose the Gilroy | Napoli | Short Law Group and will be forever thankful we did.A Very Grateful Mom
Jason Short was outstanding in handling my sons DUI case. My son's breathalyzer test was only .05, but he was still being charged with a DUI. Jason used his experience dealing with the DA's office and was able to convince the district attorney they would not win this case…all charges were dropped, including the traffic citations. After calling several attorneys in the area Jason was the only one who felt we had a shot at having the charges dismissed, most of the attorneys we talked with only wanted to discuss the diversion program. Jason was the right choice!Paul
We have recently gone through the biggest trial in our lives. Dealing with false accusations from a vendictive person. Thankfully a friend highly recommended Jason and Jeff for guidance. Today I can report with their help our case is closed and the truth prevailed! Words can’t express our gratitude for these guys. They worked hard, quickly followed up and very much earned our trust and confidence. I am eternally grateful and highly recommend them.Kimberly
