Informative and thorough
Greg was knowledgable and very informative with what was going on during our case. He kept us up to date with the process, and made it as easy for us as could possibly be. He was willing to meet us on our end of town, and explained every step that needed to be done. He also made sure that we knew we could contact him at anytime with any questions we might have. He negotiated with insurance companies and made sure to get the best settlement he could get.
