About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

I have handled a wide variety of cases over the years, including car wreck, death cases, divorce and criminal defense.

 

I was born and raised in Decatur.  After practicing law for 17 years, I decided to give back to my community and, as a result, I ran for city council.  

 

I was elected with 80% of the vote and, then, was elected city council president.  During the next 4 years, the City of Decatur experienced unprecedent growth and progress, even though we experienced a severe economic downturn.  

 

For the past 3 years, I have served as a staff member of a nationally reknown trial lawyer's college, a non-profit, volunteering my time to help other attorneys.

 

I have tried approximately 20 jury trials and I served as the lead counsel in a capital murder case that resulted in an acquital, said to be the first in the history of Morgan County.  I was 30 years old at the time.

Great job
Greg was very thorough. We won the lawsuit thanks to his attention to detail and knowledge of how the system works. I hope I won't need an attorney again, but if I do it'll be Mr. Reeves.

Mr Gregory Reeves
I was hit by a drunk driver on my motorcycle. I was having issues with the driver and insurance. I was referred to Mr.Reeves and was told he could help. I was very apprehensive about lawyers and the system. Mr. Reeves took the time to explain the process and answered all my concerns. He kept me updated and everything happened as he explained. I would recommend Mr. Reeves to anybody without hesitation. Very pleased.

Hired Reeves Law Firm after being hit head-on by another driver. All the bills and legalities were taken care of quickly by Greg, he kept me informed and explained everything in layman's terms the whole time. Always returned my calls, and worked hard to come to a very fair settlement. I'll definitely use Greg if I ever need an attorney in the future. A genuinely nice guy!

Client Review
Attorney Reeves was easy to talk to,not pushy like some attorneys I had talked with, this really helped in making my decision. Mr. Reeves explained the process thoroughly so I could understand what to expect. Everything he said he would do,he did. Mr. Reeves came highly recommended from someone I knew and trusted. Mr. Reeves and his office assistant were really nice if I had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

An excellent lawyer who became our friend
I was injured in a car accident in May 2013. Initially my husband and I tried to resolve the case on our own, but as the medical bills and doctor visits kept accumulating we became overwhelmed with what was the correct thing to do. We were referred to Greg Reeves Law firm by a friend and we were very thankful to have him take over our case. Mr. Reeves treated us as if we were his only case and always returned our phone calls or emails in a timely manner. This was very important to me. Mr. Reeves knows the legal system very well, he knew step by step what we would be facing and this made the settlement process as easy as possible. We not only felt we had a very good attorney to represent us but we felt he was our friend and cared about us personally in the midst of a difficult and emotional time. At the end of the case we reached a very good and fair settlement. My husband and I would recommend Greg Reeves to anyone who needs a confident, knowledgeable and caring lawyer. ~Heather

Near fatal auto accident
My wife and daughter was seriously injured in an auto accident that claimed the life of the person that struck them. He was travelling at a high rate of speed on the wrong side of the road. My 11 year old daughter suffered a broken back and my wife had multiple broken bones and endured several surgeries, she was wheelchair bound for 6 months. Throughout this entire ordeal, Mr Reeves handled our settlements and was very proficient, as our results reflected. He kept us fully informed, but only as needed, as he allowed us to heal. We are extremely satiisfied with his work.

Would definitely recommend his services!
I was injured by an uninsured motorist - out of state. Mr. Reeves went above and beyond to ensure my case was handled accordingly. I had no idea how to begin due to the extenuating circumstances. He handled everything and kept me informed throughout the process.

An excellent lawyer
My family and I were in a terrible car accident in February of 2009.Myself and my young daughter were badly injured. I had a broken leg and spent 6 months in a wheelchair while my 6 year old daughter suffered a broken wrist, a skull fracture , and a laceration on her forehead requiring 80+ stitches to close. Mr. Reeves was there for us and immediately stepped in and started taking care of business .He made sure we got the medical attention we required and were well compensated for what we had been put through. He always kept in touch and answered every question I asked. He has a wonderful staff ,everybody I spoke with was friendly and helpful. He is an excellent lawyer and a very trustworthy person and if he says he can help you he can and he will.
