"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. – Benjamin Franklin. I have been fortunate in my career to have been surrounded by many great attorneys and mentors. One mentor taught me that it is impossible to over-prepare for a case that is going to hearing or trial. It is important to know your client, know the facts, and know the law. But most importantly, you need to outwork your opponent."
Greg is licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois. He is a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA), the Illinois State Bar Association, the Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG), the Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Association, and the Kane County Bar Association. Mr. Booth has been selected to the Rising Stars by Illinois Super Lawyers (2018-2021) and Emerging Lawyers by Leading Lawyers (2018-2020), an honor given to only 2.5% of all attorneys practicing in Illinois. He has also been selected to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40 (2019).
Mr. Booth was born in Aurora, Illinois and is a lifelong resident of the Fox Valley. He attended grade school at Holy Angels in Aurora and high school at Marmion Academy, where he now serves on the Marmion Alumni Association Board of Directors. Greg is also a homebrewer and BJCP certified beer judge, and he has won multiple awards at competitions throughout the country. Greg resides in Aurora with his wife and daughter.
