About me

After graduating from Kalamazoo College in 2006 where he served as Captain of both the college golf and hockey teams, Gregory went on to graduate Cum Laude from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, also being awarded highest honors while earning his Master of Laws (LLM) in Taxation.


In 2013, Gregory received the clients choice award for his contributions in the area of Estate Planning.


Gregory is currently pursuing his MBA at the Haworth College of Business and expects to become dual licensed as both an Attorney and CPA in the State of Michigan by 2017.

Away from the office Gregory is actively involved with the National Kidney Foundation and volunteers as a youth skiing and hockey instructor. He and his wife presently reside in Auburn Hills, Michigan with their two dogs Baxter and Rocky.
