In early Fall of 2015 we had a dispute with a tenant over payment of rent and rat infestation in the crawlspace that was handled very timely. The tenant got a lawyer to send us threatening letters and refused to pay rent which was hugely stressful. I did a bunch of research to find someone who had a lot of experience and skills at handling Landlord/Tenant Law. Greg’s reviews seemed frank and honest and I am very glad we chose him as our attorney. It took a couple of months and the tenant pulled out all the stops in fighting us, but we were able to evict the tenant and get a judgment. Greg was always calm and explained things in detail so we could make educated decisions. His experience with the courts and more importantly with the human element of the conflict in these situations is really invaluable. He gave us good advice and I’m glad we took it. One thing that struck me as a client is that he loves practicing law and loves advocating for his clients. Always a good thing in the lawyer you are hiring! We will definitely use him again if we need an attorney, and we will recommend him to our friends.

Landlord-tenant issues. Greg knew the law. He gave me great advice. He met me after my work hours which was really helpful. While the law in Oregon tends to favor the tenant, Greg kept me on the 'good side' of the law, advised me what and what not to do. I would totally recommend Greg, and would use him again (hopefully I won't have to).

I have had the good fortune of having Gregory L Abbott answer some Property Management questions that I have posted and in each case I received a concise, thorough, and professional response. I have also read his responses to questions posted by others which has further enriched my knowledge as a Property Manager. I would not hesitate to hire him to represent me should the need ever arise as I have full confidence of his knowledge of the Oregon Landlord Tenant and Fair Housing laws.
Thank you Mr. Abbott for all the good you have done on this site.

Greg was very thorough and prompt with his response to my legal tenant lanlord law inquiry. He then followed up with a recommendation to my particular situation. For someone to be so generous of their time and expertise for no financial gain says alot to this mans character. Unfortunately he doesn't practice in San Diego so I wouldn't be able to retain his services. Thanks again Greg your the best.

I'm a business attorney but occasionally I'm asked to answer a landlord-tenant question by a client, neighbor or friend. Greg has always been extremely responsive and provides his guidance and suggestions in a clear, easy-to-understand fashion. When a question recently came up on my own rental, Greg provided excellent guidance. He understands that emotions can run high when it comes to your home and provides measured but compassionate guidance. I highly recommend him!

As novice landlord trying to navigate the statutes alone is a very daunting task at best. In my case I thought I had dotted my i's and crossed my t's only to discover, after my tenants hired an attorney, that I misread a portion of my lease agreement. After being contacted by my tenants attorney.
Mr. Abbott reviewed my documents and educated me on several items both with my lease agreement and the landlord tenant law itself. I quickly discovered that Mr. Abbott takes pride in not only advising you on what you CAN do in a particular circumstance, but also what may be more appropriate. His experience with the legal process is invaluable as he has see so many different cases and scenarios, that I felt very confident each step of the way. While I had made stumbles in the beginning, he was able to correct my course and I was able to get possession back and move on.
I feel that Greg was more than fair with regard to his billing of time. A point I would like also mention is his work and time. Greg works later in the day which is really nice, because I was able to avoid missing work during the day to meet with him, we were able to meet at night. I was impressed with the depth of detail he was able to provide me on several issues and really just can not say enough for his commitment to provide proper details so you can make an educated decision. Something, I can tell you that my tenants attorney did not feel was necessary for them.
If you are in need of legal advice or counsel from either the position of landlord or tenant, I dont believe you could find a better advocate than Mr. Abbott. He will be fair. He will be honest, but most of all he will have your best interests in mind.

After trying on my own to get information about the court-ordered pension money due to me, Gregory Abbott was successful in getting a quick response from a very large organization. After carefully listening to me and reading the court- order, he explained the steps that he would take to reach a successful outcome. He clearly described his billing and kept me informed of the case's progress via email and telephone. He was very knowledgable and able to explain to me everything that was involved in plain English. He is an excellent lawyer and enjoyable to be with.

Gregory worked with me to draft up a Notice To Vacate to serve on a house sitter in my home. This was not simply a cookie cutter notice that I could have picked up at the stationary store. He accepted my input to specifically address issues in the situation I was dealing with.
His costs were more reasonable then other attorneys who I checked with. He was very generous with his time and provided me with a lot of valuable advice. I have and will continue to recommend him highly.

Mr. Abbott responded to an urgent question I posted regarding Landlord/Tenant Law. He gave me invaluable information, that I was able to implement in what I felt to be an urgent matter. I had sent my former tenants a certified invoice, on day 18 out of the 21 days I had to inform them of why they weren't getting a security deposit, and what they owed me for stolen plumbing fixtures, as well as damage outside of the custom "wear and tear" allowed. One day before the deadline, day 20, I was power washing the outside vinyl siding and noticed that 4-5 of the "shingles" were melted. They look pregnant. I love pregnant, but not on the side of my house. Having been to the home to make routine repairs, I have seen that in the area of damage is where they used to keep their bbq. It all made sense, but I had not noticed that before I sent the invoice. In a panic, I turned to my trusted AVVO and sent the question out to your experts. This is where Mr. Abbott comes in. Just in the nick of time he told me to file in small claims court, which if I won, could put a lien against their property. When I researched further into a lien I was thrilled, because they stole the mobile home they are in now from a senile 98 year old widow. It's a long story. I feel if I can vindicate her as well as myself, maybe she can have some peace on her heart the remainder of her days, and I will find peace for a piece of property that is very dear to my heart that the tenants stole from and destroyed senselessly. Thank you a million times over for including Attorney Abbott on AVVO, I have hope again.
