|Born||13 October 1922|
|Died||12 October 2005
|Known for||Criminal Law|
While he was in the Navy, Galbally played Australian rules football in the Victorian Football League with Jock McHale's Collingwood. He made just six appearances, all in the 1942 VFL season. A leg injury sustained with an axe while cutting wood left him in hospital for two months and ended his career.
Galbally was one of the first solicitors to practice as a trial advocate without joining the Victorian Bar. He defended his first murder case in 1950 and by the end of his career had achieved an acquittal rate of 80 to 90 per cent.
A novel he wrote, Jury Man, was made into a film in 1992, called Storyville.
He died in 2005, the day before his 83rd birthday.
