I am one of the partners of Atwood & McVay LLP.  I typically wear shorts and flip flops to the office, because I like being comfortable and hope to foster a comfortable environment for my clients.  Most of my clients have been beaten up and talked down to for way too long, so when they come to me I want them to get no nonsense and no bs advice.  And more than anything, I want them to laugh.  This is a serious job, but there is no reason why we can't have fun while helping people.

So Glad I Met Him!
This guy has got to be one the most honest and direct lawyers I've dealt with. He couldn't help me immediately, but he listened to my story. Put my mind at ease about a court date. Gave me a plan of attack and pointed me in the right direction.

Great support throughout the process
Bankruptcy is a pretty stressful process, but Greg was always available to answer questions throughout the whole process. He managed to get us in under Chapter 7 which made a huge difference in our future.

Super friendly and helpful!
I recently had an immediate legal concern and was recommended to Atwood & McVay, LLP. Great Recommendation! From the moment I phoned I was treated with care, concern, and respect. Mr. Atwood even returned my call on Saturday! This is a fine group with which to work if you find yourself needing highly professional and most considerate guidance through a difficult circumstance. Thank you again, Mr. Atwood!

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Jan 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the opportunity to both learn from Greg Atwood while later working with Greg in various Ch. 7 and Ch. 13 cases. Greg possesses an immeasurable amount of knowledge of the bankruptcy code which allows to him to ensure that each of his clients will receive the best possible representation. Another undervalued attribute of Greg is his efforts in responding to questions of his clients. Greg is always available."
