Torrance criminal defense attorney Greg Hill defends those accused of DUI, domestic violence, shoplifting, drug crimes and other offenses in the Torrance and Long Beach areas, as well as other areas. He grew up in the Torrance and Long Beach area, before leaving for college in Annapolis, Maryland. After graduating from college (the U.S. Naval Academy), Greg went throughThe Basic School (TBS) in Quantico, Virginia, and then through flight school in Pensacola, Florida for about two years. After earning his wings, he spent about a year in Whidbey Island, Washington, learning to fly the EA-6B Prowler and learning about electronic warfare. Upon finishing the training in Washington, he went straight to the Gulf for Operation Desert Shield and then, Operation Desert Storm. After this deployment and combat, he spent another six years in the Marine Corps, deploying to Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba and various places across the U.S. While in the Marines, he earned an MBA from Boston University.
Once he left the Marine Corps, as a Captain, he entered law school at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. Three years later, he graduated and took the Bar Exam, passing it on his first try despite having monocleosis.
Since passing the Bar in 1998, he has aken many cases to jury trial and bench trial, although most have resolved short of trial. He has een lucky enough to learn from some great lawyers and thereby develop my skills. He learns omething new every single day in practicing law. Often it is just a better way to argue a point. Other times, it is a case that says exactly what he needs for a client with a similar problem. He thoroughly enjoys helping people resolve problems, whether it be a civil or criminal matter.
Outside of my practice, he has three very active kids and a family to support. He is also active as a Blue and Gold Officer for the Naval Academy, giving interviews for high school kids applying to the Academy and then submitting his evaluation to the admissions board. He is also active in his son's Boy Scout troop and his daughters' club soccer games.

I have known Mr. Greg T. Hill for over two decades. Mr. Hill is an extremely versatile and intelligent human being. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy for his undergraduate work, and Boston University where he received an MBA and Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. This is where I met Mr. Hill. We were classmates. Throughout the years, his diverse background with military science, business and law have proven him to be a formidible opponent in the courtroom and an asset to his clents. Mr. Hill is competitive, hard working and an extremely dedicated lawyer. Aside from his aggressiveness in practice, he is also very ethical and a fine human being. I have the highest regard for Mr. Hill and without any reservation endorse him.

What I see in Mr. Hill as a lawyer: Greg is dedicated to serve his client well beyond the typical obligations in a lawyer-client relationship. Unfortunately most clients do not understand or appreciate this trait. His academics knowledge and lawyering skills are of the highest quality. His results in court prove the point.
