About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

Like his political and legal hero, Abraham Lincoln, Greg Funfsinn comes from humble beginnings.  Greg was born in the small farm town of Mendota, Illinois - home of the National Sweet Corn Festival - and raised on his family's farm in Bureau County, Illinois.  Greg's dad worked for 47 years at a Caterpillar factory outside of Mendota and even longer on the family farm, before finally retiring.  His mom was primarily a stay-at-home mom raising Greg and his two siblings, but also worked on-and-off as a receptionist, waitress, and at an insurance agency before eventually retiring.

Greg graduated near the top of his class from Mendota Township High School and then attended Loyola University Chicago.  He was the first in his family to go to college.  Greg paid his way through college with some help from his parents, a lot of help from student loans, and also by working a few summers in a factory and doing retail work during the school year.  Greg graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice.  Greg's interest in law enforcement and his love of investigating almost took him to the FBI or Secret Service, but instead took him to law school.  During the year between college and law school, Greg worked as a project assistant at Vedder Price, an international business-focused law firm in Chicago.

Greg then enrolled in law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law.  He graduated with his law degree and after graduation began working for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office (CCSAO) as a criminal prosecutor.  The CCSAO is the 2nd largest prosecutors' office in the United States.  Greg began his career as an Assistant State's Attorney in the Appeals Division, where he honed his ability to conduct legal research and formulate persuasive legal arguments in writing.  He argued multiple cases in the Illinois Court of Appeals and wrote nearly 35 appellate briefs.  After years in the Appeals Division, he was promoted to the 4th District Criminal Trial Division.  During his time in the trial division, Greg handled more than 100 bench trials, several jury trials, and hundreds of court hearings.

While in Chicago, Greg met his beautiful wife, Aaron Ann Rose Cole, who was a fellow criminal prosecutor.  Aaron Ann was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky and her extended family is from Fayette County and Mercer County.  Greg and Aaron Ann were married in Harrodsburg, Kentucky in 2012 and are the proud parents of two young sons.  Aaron Ann is still fighting crime as an Assistant Commonwealth Attorney in Fayette County.

Since moving to Kentucky, Greg has worked at two of the largest and most well-respected law firms in Kentucky.  He has represented individuals and businesses involved in a wide variety of lawsuits.  Greg has participated in hundreds of depositions, numerous court hearings and oral arguments, and several jury trials.  With the founding of Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, Greg will use his vast experience and knowledge in handling injury claims and litigating injury lawsuits for individuals just like you.

Excellent attorney!!!!
Attorney Funfsinn and his staff were so friendly and helpful. He kept us informed of the status of the case on a regular basis. He was always available for our questions, or returned our calls as soon as he was available. He explained every detail and never left us questioning what was happening. If we were to ever need an attorney again, this is the attorney we will call. Thanks Greg!

EXCELLENT SKILLS
I used Greg on an injury case for a fall about a year ago that sent me to the emergency room. The hospital and medical costs were expensive and I thought I would have eat the costs. I contacted the company that was responsible and got little response. I was transferred to another company who said they would handle it. Finally, I was tired of the delay and contacted Greg. After the consultation (which was free) he contacted the company and presented my side of the incident and followed through with it. Other than taking a selfie of the healed cuts, I didn't do anything else. I received a check for three times the amount I thought I would get. I'm glad I didn't handle it myself.

Knowledgeable and communicative
It was important to me to find legal representation with swift and thorough communication, and Greg surpassed that expectation every step of the way. There were no questions that went unanswered, and I had confidence in his ability to represent me through the entire process. Greg brought my claim to a very fair and timely resolution. I will be recommending Hicks & Funfsinn to any family or friends should they be in need of the excellent services that this firm provides.

Excellent legal representation
I hired Mr. Funfsinn after being involved in an automobile accident. From the outset of my initial consultation, I knew I had made the right choice. In my mind what brought me to Mr. Funfsinn was the fact he has been on the other side of the table (representing insurance companies), so he knows exactly what they will try to do to avoid paying. Throughout the entire process (thus far), Mr. Funfsinn has treated me with respect and compassion. He always answered any questions promptly and is fighting to get what I deserve. I have been very pleased with Mr. Funfsinn's knowledge and professionalism and would recommend him to others.

Thorough and a Fighter
Greg represented me after a car ran a red light and hit my vehicle, with me and my baby in it. Greg was responsive, knowledgeable and aggressive with the insurance company to get us the best result. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
