Hired Mr. Padgett to assist with dissolution of irrevocable trust - previously unsuccessful with other legal counsel. Because of his professional, competent help, the judge ruled in my favor. He is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend.

We used Greg to help to settle the estate of our recently deceased father. There were several complications due to a poorly structured trust. Greg was able to quickly process through everything and gave us a very clear and common sense path to liquidating the trust. There were a few other peripheral issues involved that Greg was also able to counsel us through in a very professional way. We had spoken to several lawyers before Greg and no one was even close to him in knowledge and counseling skills. I would highly recommend Greg and his services.

Possible life insurance lawsuit being filed against me. Greg took a common sense approach and remained calm while other lawyers I talked to tried to put me in panic mode immediately. Would recommend him highly.
Richard Hall, Estate planning Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
As an estate planning attorney (33 years) I need to refer clients and prospects to an experienced will/trust litigator from time to time. In Indiana, there are only a handful of attorneys who, in my opinion, have the requisite skill set and experience to handle estate and trust-related litigation. Attorney Gregory L. Padgett is always my first choice of litigator for Indiana-based disputes. Greg achieves good results for his clients, whether through discovery and depositions, mediation or trial.
