Calm collected
I picked up delivery case last year. Hired Gregorios for preliminary hearing and after cop testified Gregorios asked him questions and judge threw out the case. I was so happy. Gregorios is nice and not arrogant like some other attorneys. He was calm and collected. Beat the case

Nice Lawyer
Ticketed in Chicago for using a cell phone while driving. I heard about Gregorios through a family friend. Even though he usually only does criminal cases he said he would take my case. He showed up to court, talked to city prosecutor and my case got dismissed! All in 5 minutes! Would highly recommend. Easy to talk to and nice.
