About me


The client should be the center and focus of any legal representation. I strive to listen carefully to my clients, identify with them their problems, and find the best solution available. Each client brings a unique set of issues and concerns, and customizing and successfully implementing a solution is what constitutes a successful legal representation. Within ethical restraints, what is best for the client should be the ultimate driving force of everything that the lawyer does.

  • Vanessa Laura Brown Hanks

    I have had the pleasure to work with Gregory Piede and found him to be a highly intelligent and competent attorney with a moral core that is impeccable. I trust him not only as a colleague but also as the Elder and Estate Planning attorney for my mother. He is caring and compassionate with a sharp legal and financial mind. This combination is essential when working in the area of Elder Law, where he is helping individuals with difficult and complex decisions that will greatly affect their future and the future of their loved ones. I highly recommend Gregory Piede as an Elder and Estate Planning attorney.

    I refer clients to Greg regularly. I worked with Greg on a project shortly after I graduated from Law School. He demonstrated leadership, organization, and an understanding of the issues necessary for our project to be successful. Given that this project involved an area of law outside of his usual practice and he handled it with competence, there is little doubt in my mind that Greg is someone I can trust to serve my clients, current and former, in all aspects of Elder Law. I highly recommend him.
