  • Kay Kidd Caserta

    I worked on an oil and gas matter with Greg in 2013. When it looked like the matter might be litigated, I brought Greg in to advise on several matters. He was very speedy and wise with all of his advice. The other side also knew of his excellent reputation in the courtroom and knew he would win if this went to trial. As a result, we were able to settle the matter with very favorable terms for my client.
