Outstanding attorney
Greg represented me on my divorce modification. He did a wonderful job representing me. He was very clear in where I stood and rather than making any promises he just got the job done. His experience shows in the way he handled my case. My x-wife's attorney was very difficult to deal with and rather than thumping his chest and making matters worse he handled her in a very cool and calm matter. Greg did everything he could to avoid going to trial and he succeded not only in that outcome, but getting everything resolved fairly. I was very pleased with the way everything was settled. Kudos also to his assistant Victoria. She was extremely helpful. I highly recommend using Wall and Wall.

Our Hero
I highly recommend Gregory Wall for your legal needs. He immediately honed in on the situation, came up with solutions, and ultimately made us feel at ease with my legal case. When armed with information, your level of stress decreases. Gregory always had time for us and came up with concrete, poignant solutions with a kind delivery. I value his knowledge and appreciate his willingness to help us through a very sticky mess.

Excellent Attorney
Our son was in a bad car accident and had to be hospitalized. The driver of the other car was ticketed for being under the influence of drugs. We contacted Gregory Wall and he helped us through this difficult time. He was very professional, yet personable. He sued for damages, and our son is now recovering. Thanks, Gregory!

| Consulted Attorney
Outstanding
I have only had a consultation with Mr. Wall and am already compelled to write a review. I have been involved in a custody battle for 8 years, that has turned my life upside down. My daughter's father, (we were never together) kidnapped my daughter when she was only 3 months old, and he was not even on the birth certificate. Before this time, I was blissfully unaware of the dark side of humanity and the level of corruption in the system. I am hoping to obtain Mr. Wall as my lawyer to help me fight a severe case of parental alienation. My daughter has been withheld from me for 2 months now as minors father continues to appeal to the court to grant a TRO; a request that has now been denied twice. The reason for the TRO; the unexpected and freaked death of my infant son. This has been very hard situation to face; and Mr. Wall has helped me keep the faith. He arranged for a free consultation within days and was genuinely concerned with my case. The consultation went well over a hour as Gregory made sure he understood all aspects of my case. I am very grateful for his time and professionalism.

Superb, smart, knowledgeable, and communicative
Attorney Gregory B. Wall, represented me in a complicated divorce case. He is a very smart and compassionate family attorney, who knows his stuff. He was always available on the phone/ email and responded to my queries promptly. Above all, he is a great human being who genuinely cares for his clients. I not only found an excellent attorney, but a great friend as well.

Reasonbab le fees coupled with broad knowledge and experience
I was really pleased with the services provided by Mr. Wall. He actually spent a fair amount of time providing me with information about my case and helping me to understand the law behind the case as well as procedures and other things going on with the case. It was obviously that his considerable experience served me well. I was also pleased with his rates, which tend to be lower than many other attorneys, so his rates coupled with the extra extensive experience made the whole experience a big plus.

HIghly Recommended
I had the pleasure to work with Gregory with my paternity matter. I was so nervous to meet with anyone and Greg calmed my nerves and guided me along the way, very patiently. Whenever I called he was either available or returned my phone call in a timely manner, and if he wasn't a paralegal would call to see if they could assist with my questions. The entire firm was so friendly and inviting. I would recommend any lawyer within this firm, but would HIGHLY recommend Gregory Wall!

So pleased with my representation
Had such a great experience, if that is possible in a legal battle. I was kept informed along the way; Mr. Wall was constantly available or got back to my quickly, and his prices are far more reasonable than most attorneys. I found his knowledge and skill level to exceed what I have found else.

Nothing but Positive Experience
My experience at Wall & Wall was nothing but positive. I worked closely with Greg and could tell that he really was concerned for my benefit and wanted to help me any way he could. He responded quickly and in a timely manner and addressed multiple concerns I had. Hopefully I'll never have to use an attorney again, but if I do, I know I'll be heading back to Greg Wall for advice.

Greg Wall deserves an A+ by me!
I walked in crying one day to Gregs office from being treated unfairly by my daughters father. Greg patiently listened to all of my troubles, offered advice, and ultimately helped me get exactly what I felt was fair. What I liked most about him was that he had a way of calming me down and kept me feeling hopeful during a very stressful time in my life. He stood by me every step of the way in my painful patternity suit and I will forever be greatful! Give him a call today! You wont be dissapointed!

Great attorney!!!
Greg Wall did an amazing job for me in my divorce case which involved a really difficult custody battle with my ex. He was able to help me get a good result which is really in my kids' best interests. Greg is very knowledgeable and took the time I needed to have him teach me about the process. I have never had to use an attorney before and would really recommend Greg to anyone who needs a good lawyer.

Trustworthy Ally and Advocate on Clients Behalf
Greg has helped me an enormous amount with gaining sole custody of my children. He understood the importance of raising my children and having them in a positive environment. This understanding helped our communication and I knew he was a true ally and advocate in my behalf. The process of law can sometimes be long, but Greg did what he could to get things done in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone having problems with child custody and wanting to succeed.

An Office’s Organization Speaks Volumes...
...Greg Wall’s office shouts, “Get the hell out!” Unprofessional: Stood me up in court. Refused calls. Lost paperwork repeatedly, until I started emailing instead. Unapologetic: Wasted the entire time until, on the last day, I switched to Scott Brown and Brian Coutts who won $200,000 in a short period of time for about the same cost. Greg Wall made NO effort until it came time to collect his $30,000+ for doing nothing. I would love to meet these other people who gave him 5 stars. I suspect they’re members of his church ward.

Don't waste your money.
Greg Wall seemed to be competent, but certainly didn't do what I was expecting of him. He might be OK in an uncomplicated divorce, but not when dealing with a non-standard situation. My (ex)wife was a liar and hid assets, for example she claimed she inherited $30,000, but actually (as I found out years latter) it was over $300,000. I told Greg Wall her father was worth about one million dollars when he died, but he did nothing to find out how much she actually inherited, and I had to pay some of her attorney fees because it was a "financial hardship" for her. I told him she was lying about a lot of things besides that, and he shrugged it off saying "everybody lies in a divorce" (I wasn't. Was he telling me to?) There was a real property involved which she did not show the paperwork on (claiming she couldn't find it), G.W. said it wasn't important, but, it turns out, she was in the process of putting it into her name. I told him that she had to have undisclosed accounts (for example none of the disclosed accounts showed the $30,000), but his examination of her on the stand was so inept the judge told him to stop wasting time, so her undisclosed assets were never revealed. During the trial I was to write down any questions I wanted him to ask, but he didn't ask most of the ones I wrote down. I don't think he could have done a worse job for me even if she was paying him to do so!

Response from Gregory Wall May 16, 2016
This is a recitation of events of 9 years ago, and its accuracy and veracity are immediately suspect. Virtually is incorrect. This client received 56% of the assets and his wife 44%. Her inheritance, as he was told, was not, and is not, considered marital property in Utah and not subject to division between the two spouses. That property was her sole and separate property, regardless of the amount. The remaining property will generally be divided roughly 50/50, but he in fact ended up more than 50/50. The amount of her inheritance would have been a consideration in awarding alimony but this client wasn't required to pay alimony, so once again he received another victory in the case. The wife appealed the case to the Court of Appeals, claiming the property division was unfair, but the appellate court made no change in the award, finding it fair and reasonable. This client also did not choose to file a cross-appeal to claim he also had been wronged at trial, but then again, that would be difficult when you end up not having to pay any alimony and getting more than half of the property. This client's recitation of the trial proceedings is entirely wrong, some of his questions were asked, and others were not of any value, and therefore were not asked. On the appeal he was not ordered to pay any of her attorney fees because the appellate court found he was the prevailing party on appeal. This is hardly a picture of a situation where the client has been wronged or had a poor result. Just the opposite. And a complaint 9 years after the case ended is based on very questionable motives.

Educate Yourself Before you Hire Any Lawyer!
The lawyer did not represent my best interests in my divorce. At the mediation I was left alone, the facts were wrong, and I still had no discoveries from the Husband showing extra bank accounts, reitrements, nothing. Communication was horrible, I dealt mostly with his Paralegal whom was extremely nice and understanding. This lawyer submitted a Memorandum of Understanding of which I never saw, didn't authorize, never signed, resulting in a divorce which I was unaware of until I received an email from the husband weeks later. At that time, I was taken off medical benefits asap which was a devastating life changing event as I was on social security disability and no perscription plan. After 28 years of marriage, hiring this attorney was worse than the actual seperation from the husband. There is a Bar complaint, do your homework, please, guilty on numerous things after 18 months of waiting. I am still dealing with major financial issues, and medical after the hiring of this man.

Response from Gregory Wall July 8, 2015
This client took part in a mediation to settle her case, to which settlement she agreed and signed the settlement agreement. The mediator, a former district court judge, would never have closed the mediation without her voluntary assent to the terms and her voluntary signature on the agreement. She claimed at one point that she never signed anything and never received a copy of the agreement, yet in t he next breath asserted she had taken the agreement to her bishop that very evening to have him look it over with her. How could she do this without having a copy? She claimed she was taken to a back room and forced to sign the agreement; she claimed discovery hadn't been completed when in fact it had. She was sent the final divorce papers prepared by the other attorney to review before they were submitted to the court and failed for months to reply or get in touch with us. She mediator told her several times, as did I, that if she didn't want to settle and sign the agreement she didn't need to--that she should not sign the agreement, but she did decide to go ahead and sign. Of course she was taken off the husband's medical benefits because after the divorce he isn't allowed by law to carry his former spouse. She was aware of this. In the end this client knew perfectly well what she was signing, that in her opinion it was fair, she received a copy of the papers, and left, not to be heard from for months. She walked away owing a large sum of money on her bill, which in my opinion is the reason for her complaints.
