  • Richard Mather Hall

    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.
