I Highly Recommend this Excellent Attorney
I was referred to Mr. Hoole by another attorney and could not have been more pleased. Mr. Hoole is a true professional who is knowledgeable, efficient and excels in constant communication. Mr. Hoole offered excellent guidance through the entire process of my case and I offer my highest recommendation for this attorney.

Tenacious, effective and authentic
During the course of a ten-year (!) lawsuit that was eventually heard by the Utah State Supreme Court, Greg was an absolute rock. The case was more complex, longer-running and higher profile than I think any of us expected, yet Greg's professionalism, attention to detail, compassion and care for how I was feeling, and complete determination to make sure justice was served never wavered. He gives great no-nonsense advice, explained complex issues in a way that I could understand, sees all the angles, and comes up with solid arguments that he effectively backs up and argues successfully. Plus, he is genuinely a pleasure to be around and during long depositions and stressful moments, his calm demeanor and humor were greatly appreciated. I never felt pressured, I always felt supported and listened to, and we got there eventually. He is genuinely one of the good guys and I am so grateful that he was in my corner during this process.

A one of a kind lawyer
Greg not only represented us and had our best interests, he listened to us, understood our needs, and gave sound advice while always maintaining such professionalism. We had an injury sustained by a foreigner in a rental car causing injuries that will last a lifetime for our family. Greg helped us understand what was realistic and explained all of the legal jargon and red tape we couldn't have navigated on our own. Greg isn't just a lawyer to us, he's a man of true integrity, a genuine, honest businessman who looks out for his clients and a friend to us. Not only would we recommend him, we wouldn't imagine using anyone else if ever a situation were to arise. Greg was persistent, he doesn't drop the ball and while he had many important cases he was always thorough and available. Many times he took our calls after hours knowing it was the only time we were available. Never once were we in fear that he would back down or try to convince us to settle if that's not what we wanted. He always laid all of the options out on the table. It's not everyday you find such a sincere attorney who works to get the best outcome for the client. I'm grateful we had Greg, I can't imagine the nightmare we would still be living without his knowledge, skills and hard work. If you're looking for an attorney you can trust, who will take care of your needs and listen to you and your family, Greg is absolutely your guy. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.

Greg watched out for me!
I was involved in a bicycle accident that left we with a traumatic brain injury. I asked around a bit and Greg Hoole was recommended by a fellow cyclist. I talked to Greg and after consideration he agreed to represent me in my claim against the driver of the car that hit me. My entire experience with Greg, from the initial claim, through all the gathering of material, the negotiations with the other attorneys, and the settlement was very positive. I believe I had top-notch representation and I received a fair and just settlement.

ABSOLUT BEST
Words can no express HOW THANKFUL we are to have worked with Greg. He did our adoption for our young child and helped us out with a business legal item with the state that lasted over 2 years. What a difficult and challenging road it was for us... Yet, every step of the way Greg handled the issues when we couldn't physically or emotionally move any further. He negotiated settlements and got everything we were seeking and more. Greg is one of the kindest, smart and aggressive attorneys we know. PLEASE MEET WITH HIM. You will not find a more knowledgable and professional individual!!! Greg is truly one in a million.

Bicycle Accident
I was hit by a car riding my bicycle and Greg helped me through the process of dealing with insurance companies, paperwork and the driver. He was articulate, thorough, and very knowledgeable. He made many personal visits to the hospital which expedited the case. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

I bike accident, two surgeries later, and a happy
I was involved in bike accident back in 2013. The accident was not my fault, and it involved two surgeries (of which the first one was a compete mess up (the surgeon's fault!, and i required a second surgery) and lots of medical expenses! I did not have health insurance at that time. Greg was great at easing my worries by explaining to me how legally, i would not have to be responsible for the bills and helped be settle the case, with great results in my favor! I was living in Logan, and Greg's office was in SLC, initially, we had a face to face consultation at his office, and from there on out, he did an excellent job of keeping the communication lines about the case open in a manner that was convenient for me, ie via email/phone. This was my first tome ever dealing with a layer for anything at all, and i was surprised how easy the process was!! I was always informed about what was going on in the case, and he went out of his way to get the information that he needed out of me. The entire case sent by smoothly and i always knew where i stood legally in the case and what the realistic outcomes to expect. I would recommend him to anyone!

Bicycle Accident: Review from a grieving wive's perspective
In May of 2013, my husband was hit on his bicycle by a distracted driver. Unable to walk, use his hands or do the simplest of tasks, our family was frozen in fear and sorrow with our primary source of income gone and a father incapacitated. He spent almost two months out of work, in the hospital and rehab facility recovering from multiple injuries. With four young kids to care for at home, no income for our family and a husband that was unable to do anything for himself, I was absolutely overwhelmed. Greg Hoole's careful attention to detail, personal visits and professional advice was what kept me vertical. He told me at the onset of this nightmare that he would worry about the case and insurance companies so that I could focus on my husband and children. He stood by that promise. Greg sifted through paper work, phone calls, lawyers and insurance claims, so many details that would have distracted and prevented me from caring for my family. We made it through one of the biggest challenges in our lifetime. I owe much of this to Greg Hoole. I was able to emotionally and physically care for the needs of my kids and my husband, as well as give myself some time to process and heal. We are not burdened with resentment or anger when we look back on those hard times and I believe that is because Greg took those hard phone calls and issues off my plate. I am so grateful for that! I trust Greg Hoole and respect him as a friend and a lawyer. I know he put my family's best interests first and was 100% invested and committed to helping us restore our lives again. I could not have done 2013 without him by my side. I would recommend Greg as a lawyer to anyone seeking advice and counsel. He's amazing!

An amazing advocate
Towards the end of 2012, I was involved in a car accident, where I was rear ended on the freeway and sustained neck and back injuries. This was an incredibly stressful time, was out of work, and felt completely overwhelmed by the constant noise of insurance and med providers. My uncle gave Greg's number and advised me to give him a call to have him guide me through the stress of post crash. I made the call to Greg, and right from the first meeting Greg made this situation manageable. Greg took over dealing with insurance companies , the other side, and med providers. I could finally breathe and focus on getting healthy and back to life and work. At the end of the process, Greg was able to secure me a very sizable and fair settlement. I will never be glad that I was involved in the accident but having Greg on my side allowed me to feel like I was made whole again. Greg was always responsive, friendly, professional, and a fierce advocate. God forbid I have to experience a car accident again, I at least know I have someone to call who will advocate for me. Thanks Greg!

HIred
After after being injured in a cycling accident, my husband hired Greg Hoole to represent him in a personal injury case. Greg was attentive, personally accessible, as well as a brilliant negociator. Greg exhibited the upmost integrity and professionalism. He was able to resolve our case in a timely manner and for the policy limits due to the injuries sustained. As a result of this experience, we have continued to have an ongoing association with Greg for other legal matters. We have tremendous confidence and trust in Greg as a person and as a professional. We would recommend Mr. Hoole, without any reservation for any legal matter within his scope of practice. He has a brilliant mind, is highly efficient with his time and has exhibited high ethical standards in all of the interactions we have experienced with him over the past few years.

Wonderful Litigator
We engaged Greg late in the process, and he worked hard, came up to speed quickly, then dedicated the time needed to defend us through our trial. He provided excellent strategy and counsel through the process and was our advocate every step along the way. His professional demeanor, intelligence, and understanding of the courtroom provided exactly what we needed. We are grateful that we hired Greg and he exceeded all of our expectations.

Great Litigator
Mr. Hoole has represented our interests in many cases over the last few years; we continue to use his services because he continues to impress. He has represented us with the finest of both legal strategy and professionalism. Arguably the most effective attorney I've seen in both the traditional litigation environment and other ADR formats. His effort and skill in critical junctures, like a culminating week long arbitration hearing, have been impressive. Great advocate. Great litigator.

knowledgeable and highly responsive
I have hired attorneys for various business purposes for the past 17 years. Most of the time I have to leave a message and don't hear back for several days. I hired Greg to handle a small litigation matter. (I was a very small case for Greg). Even though I was a small client for Greg he was very responsive and highly organized with a vast knowledge of the law. I was so impressed I now call him for everything first. Which is the other reason I like Greg- he is very realistic. He knows what he is good at and what he does not focus on. He is honest and completely ethical. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone.

Greg Hoole
We retained Greg for help in connection with a cycling related injury. Greg got a great result for us and did a great job keeping us informed of the progress of the case, and advising us as to various options along the way. I would definitely use Greg again if the need arose and I would recommend him to others without hesitation.

Absolutely the Best !
Greg Hoole has been our Association's litigation attorney for five years. We have found him incredibly easy to work with, communicates well, always timely with his filings, and is spot-on with his legal advice. And I cannot overstate that every legal document Mr. Hoole writes is a work of art. With Mr. Hoole, you never need to worry that he may have forgotten some of the details you told him. He didn't forget -- and while you weren't looking he dug up a dozen more on his own. I'm left with the impression that Mr. Hoole understands my business better than I do. You could not find a better attorney.
