About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

4
Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    30%
    The purpose of estate planning is to make sure that you and your assets are taken care if you pass away or become incapacitated. If you need help with a power of attorney, will, trust, advance-health directive, special needs trust, etc. I can help.

  2. Guardianship
    30%
    Guardianship is the process whereby you can obtain authority to manage a loved ones affairs If a loved one has become incapacitated. If your loved one does not have a power of attorney and has become incapacitated, I can help you navigate through the necessary court process.

  3. Social Security & Disability
    30%
    Social Security benefits are monetary benefits you have a right to If you have a disability that has kept you from working, and that disability will last or has lasted for twelve months or more. These benefits can be difficult to obtain. Make sure you have a lawyer advocating for you throughout your disability claim.

  4. Probate
    10%
    Simply stated, probate is the judicial process to obtain authority to manage a person or their estate. If a loved one has passed on with or without a will, you will need to go through this process in order to wrap-up their remaining affairs. Regardless of where you may be in the process, call me, I can help.

Primarily, I work for people with disabilities and their families. I've been helping families obtain guardianship and conservatorship when their disabled child reaches the age of majority, or when family members become incapacitated through traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's or dementia, or some other malady. I also help these families apply for their entitled government benefits, such as Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and Medicare. After obtaining government benefits it can be critical for families to establish a special needs trust in order to protect their benefits or assets; I help families in the establishment of these trusts as well.

 

The area of law these legal services encompass is called probate. Probate law seeks to answer questions relating to a person's death or incapacity. Probate law deals with both estate planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorney, etc.) and what to do in case someone dies or becomes incapacitated without an estate plan in place (guardianship, conservatorship, opening and closing the probate estate, etc.). I've been working in the probate arena for seven years and practice all forms of estate planning and probate litigation.

 

Helping families in Social Security cases does not fall under probate law, but are disability related and I have made this part of my practice as well.

Guardianship
Greg is a very good attorney. He has a clear passion for his chosen area of practice. Greg has always been very straightforward with me regarding a parental guardianship issue. He is genuine, which you will come to appreciate if you need assistance in this area of law. From my experience, Greg is very respected in the field and this helped to make the final process smooth and efficient.

Not sure what that means.
He spent time with us, answered questions, set up a time to talk when I had problems downloading papers on my computer. He was willing to take money in two installments and one just before court. He was pleasant and kind to my daughter.

He's a good lawyer.
I was a client of Mountain West Disability for about 2 years and every 3 months or so they would assign me a new case manager and ask me a series of questions and they were the same each time. They would send me new paperwork for a doctor to fill out and have send it back to them and I did as they asked. I never got to meet these people and I don't know what happened for them to drop me. At this time I needed a Lawyer and Mr. Misner was recommend to me. We spoke on the phone and I met with Greg Misner at his downtown office and this was Halloween 2015. My hearing date was 18 DEC 2015. Greg agreed to be my lawyer and in the short amount of time I had him as my Lawyer he got more done and returned all of my calls with in a few hours when I had questions, and he kept me in the loop with what was going on. He was also easy to talk to and was there with me every step of the way. Thank you, Greg you rock

Guardianship
We were in a difficult situation where we had tried every route to solve our problem -- but the opposing people refused to work with us in any way. We had no other choice but to turn to the law. Greg was recommended to us by someone concerned about our situation. Upon meeting Greg, I was impressed with his professionalism and his willingness to listen to what I had to say and what the situation was. He was so helpful to lead me through the things I needed to do to handle this legally so that no one could come and refute the outcome. Because of Greg and his assistance, we were able to get the situation handled. We got legal rights to have the person removed from the situation, but the opposing party refused to do it and talked the police into NOT carrying out the order because of lies that they told them and convinced them it was true. Greg went back to the court and got specific rules from the judge that made it impossible for them to do anything but follow the court order. Because of this, we were able to get the person out of an abusive situation and into a place where she was safe and cared for in a loving way. This was NOT an easy case, and I know that Greg had no idea what he was getting into when he agreed to help me, but he stuck with me and we were able to succeed in getting the right thing done. I would recommend Greg to anyone who was looking for help in his areas of expertise.

Highly Recommend
Greg, Thank you for all you did for our sister and helping us obtain guardianship. I’m not just referring to the legal stuff, because that goes without saying. It’s the kindness, sincerity and patience you displayed towards her that stands out. You made all the difference during a time when she was feeling anxiety and distress during the hearing and you made her smile afterwards. You even sat with her while we finished up paperwork. Thank you for everything! You are really great at what you do.

Highly recommend
I hired Greg Misener to help me get guardianship of my handicapped son that we felt was in a harmful environment and was being isolated from his family. Greg is wonderful to work with and is a caring, experienced and dedicated attorney. He was very responsive to my calls, emails and kept me up to date as to what was going on. He explained things clearly to me and walked me through how the court proceedings and processes work. Our case was complicated and it took over 2 years because of that, but he has worked hard and we got the outcome that we wanted. My son is safe, happy, healthy and involved with his family again. I highly recommend Greg and would definitely call him again if I needed an attorney.
