Excellent Attorney
Mr. Paddison was not only thorough throughout the entirety of my case and court proceedings, but he was attentive and kind as well. He was always well prepared and willing and ready to go to bat for me.

Great service
I would recommend Gregory Paddison for legal services. He has been working with my family on an urgent matter and has been nothing but professional. My phone calls are always returned in a timely manner and he has been valuable throughout this process.

Great Counsel Represented by Gregory Paddison
After only 2-3 hours of being arrested Greg showed up to provide counsel. Greg was an absolute professional, was very attentive and was also empathetic to my situation. Throughout the process Greg remained in contact with me, keeping me informed on my legal matter. As far as legal counsel is concerned I couldnt have asked for a better attorney.

Satisfied Client!
Gregory worked with me on a lawsuit filed by some former tenants who lived with a family member. I have never been in trouble or sued before so it was a stressful situation for me. Gregory always listened to me. He addressed my concerns and my issues. He provided me with all of the information and documents that I needed to proceed with the case. He is knowledgeable, professional and was very prompt with any replies and he always kept me informed. It was a great comfort to me to know that he understood the law and my situation. He even followed up with me after the case was over to make sure I was satisfied with his performance. I would definitely use his services in the future if needed. I would recommend him to family, friends or anyone that needed legal help.

Navigates easily across multiple levels of law, even outside of his specialty areas.
Greg assisted me with a conflict with a neighbor in an instance where the local ordinance was not clear. He was incredibly swift, professional, and compassionate and was able to get a very stressful situation resolved within one week's time! I was nervous but trusted Greg's judgement and advice, and am very glad I did. I can only imagine his performance is even better in his focus areas. I was impressed by his demonstrated ability to apply solid legal training to any case, and would definitely contract with him in the future.

Very pleased!
Greg was courteous and attentive while describing in detail how our current estate plan aided us while adapting our forms to better protect us against the current changes in the law. It was nice to work with an attorney who talked to us rather than at us. I have recommended him to multiple friends and family knowing that I feel confident in his ability to aid my family.
