    I first met Greg Stokes years ago as opposing counsel in a personal injury case resulting from a tractor trailer wreck. The case was hard fought and my client the trucking company paid Greg's injured client an excellent settlement. I learned a lot from Greg in that case. I learned first hand Greg was an expert in personal injury. From time to time I seek out Greg's advice on legal issues and the business of running a law firm. Perhaps what impresses me most about Greg is how much he cares about his clients and the lengths he goes to get his client great results. I endorse this lawyer's work.
