I am a dad first and foremost.  I have two kids.  I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida at Good Samaritan Hospital and still live here.  My office is on Flagler Drive, which is right down the street from Good Sam.  In my spare time, I train jiu jitsu and play guitar in church.  

Making a difference in people's lives, one client at a time.

I fight for the underdog.  The individual against the powerful.  We only do personal injury and criminal defense cases.  I am passionate about helping good people solve their problems.  I've tried over 100 jury and non-jury trials in state and federal courts, authored two books and helped over 1,000 clients in Florida.  I successfully argued in the Florida Supreme Court, which expanded Miranda rights in Florida.  That murder case was covered by CBS 48 Hours.  I limit the number of clients I represent in order to offer unparalled representation.  I am board certified in criminal trial law.  Less than 1% of lawyers are board certified.

Top Notch Attorney
Grey Tesh did an amazing job handling our families case. He maintained constant contact with us. Made himself available whenever we needed him. Returned phone calls in a quick, and efficient manner. He got us a verdict that was well beyond our expectations. I would hire Grey in an instant, and I recommend him to anyone who has a difficult criminal case , that is in need of a lawyer.

I am astonished that when going to first appearance calendar call to set a date for a felony trial, my daughter was released from custody and going home same day with only a misdimeanor. WHAT...when does that EVER happen. I would recommend him with 110% confidence in his abilities. Definitely worth the investment!

Excellent Criminal Defense Lawyer
I would recommend Grey Tesh without reservation to someone who finds themselves needing a criminal defense lawyer. Grey is bright, experienced, socially adept, honest, compassionate and highly effective in producing results. Grey keeps himself up to date on current law and has gone the extra step of becoming "board certified" in criminal defense law. If my son or daughter were in trouble, I would look to Grey for his help.

Highly Recommend!
Grey goes the extra mile for his clients. He is well respected by his peers and all members of the "legal" community in South Florida. I have used Grey's services on various occasions and highly recommend him!

I called Mr. Tesh because of the excellent reviews that he received here. He never made me feel rushed or that I was imposing on his most valuable time. He gave me an honest opinion and suggested that it would be to my benefit to stay with the legal representation that I currently have. . I was not disappointed. He listened intently and asked all the right questions. I would not hesitate to hire hire him should the need arise.

Excellent Results and Very Responsive
I am a lawyer but do not handle criminal cases or practice in FL. I referred a case to Mr. Tesh and would do so again should any of my clients, family or friends ever have criminal defense needs. Mr. Tesh obtained excellent results as the charges were dismissed. He was very responsive when the client had questions both during and after representation.

he did what he said he could do...
After my arrest I was pretty upset. I called Grey and he told me that he thought that he could get all charges dropped. I felt better. I followed his advice and he got me a deal, all charges dropped by the state without even appearing in front of a judge. Grey was very knowledgeable and responsive. It pays to use a professional.

The Best Lawyer in West Palm Beach
When you hire Grey Tesh you not only are getting a highly experienced, outstanding lawyer but you are making a friend for a life time. My business in the States involved me to work with many lawyers time to time. I had been fed up with their arrogance, lack of communication, lack of time for you etc, even after paying insane money as retainers and fees. Grey always has time for you. He promptly communicates with you whenever you need him. Listening to you, understanding you and doing a thorough research on the case is his forte. In the court he fights like a tiger but always keeps you calm. I was really impressed by the time he would spend on collecting details for your case. I saw him going through 100s of pages of transcripts, 100s of hours of tapes, video just to find a small clue. When I was worried about loosing the case and had started to think about what happens when you loose the case he calmed me down and helped me to stop negative thinking and made me think positive. His knowledge of law is deep. This helps him to answer your questions quicker than anyone. At this point, I also want to mention about the exceptionally experienced staff that work for him. They communicate to you very regularly through the process and keep you updated. Grey Tesh works with you in terms of payment plans and makes it easier for you to climb and insurmountable mountain. As I said, when I hired Grey Tesh I did not just get a lawyer but a friend for life.

Mr. Tesh's Professionalism is Top Notch
I was caught up in an unfortunate criminal matter. Mr. Tesh listened to my story in an unrushed manner, allowing me all the time needed, asked pertinent questions and formed an excellent defense taking me to a successful conclusion in a jury trial. His follow-up pretrial was timely, thorough and effective. I never felt hustled or rushed in my conversations with Grey. His staff was courteous and always responsive to my questions and needs. His manner in court was always positive and tenacious. His attention to detail was excellent. I never once felt as if I had been forgotten while waiting for my case to move along due to the many phone calls and emails from Grey and his staff. I have Grey's skills to thank for giving me back my life.

A 100 % satisfied Criminal Defense Client of Grey W. Tesh
I recommend Mr. Tesh to the fullest. If you looked around for lawyers and made phone calls you also know how pushy some of them can be and want nothing but to get you in and sign a contract as fast as they can. After I searched for a lawyer affiliated with the group NORML because I thought that would be best for charges I had, I found MR. Tesh's number. He let me explain my case and helped me be more aware of everything and answered all my questions without once pressuring me to make an appointment to hire him and so on and so on. I have used lawyers before with prior charges and was not satisfied. I can honestly say I am 100 % satisified using MR. Tesh as my criminal lawyer and he got me the best deal that I didnt even think was possible. I owe him I feel.

Thank you Grey !
Mr. Tesh handled my case very well and I avoided any embarrassing repercussions based on Grey's work. I've used legal help for many years in business and attorney's don't impress me because they went to law school. Grey is the real deal and will do everything to help, advise and keep the client out of problems.

Fair and Honest
After more than a year, and lots of money, with no results from my first lawyer, Grey Tesh stepped in. Grey handled my case in a professional and prompt manner at a reasonable price. I would recommend Grey Tesh to anyone in need of such service.
