Estate Planning
Greg and his team were responsive and professional in preparing a Trust for me and my family. He was caring, explained the necessary details, and kept in touch when scheduling conflicts surfaced. I'd recommend him for such Estate services.

Excellent attorney!
I was referred to Gregory by a friend, and was extremely happy with the results. I had an extremely complicated child custody case with a change of jurisdiction and Gregory made the whole process simple and easy, including working with my attorney in another state. Everything he promised would happen in court, happened. He was confident, knowledgeable, supportive, and his staff was as well. He was worth every penny!

Outstanding attirney
I have utilized Greg’s wisdom and expertise in completing two trusts and an issue regarding my HOA. His guidance and sound advice each step of the way made the process bearable. I have recommended him to several friend and associates who have all hired him to assist with their family estate planning.

Great Job!
Greg was a great help to us in planning for our own estate as well as answering questions regarding my parent's trust. It's good to have someone like Greg to turn to in order to assure peace of mind. Thanks!

Must Hire Him!!
I had no idea who to turn to when I was getting divorced. I'm so grateful to my friend for recommending me to Greg! Not only did he win my case with flying colors, any questions or concerns I had during the whole stressful ordeal, he immediately answered quickly and guided me through each step. His advice was not only practical, but also sympathetic to my specific needs. He talked to me like a person and not just a client, explaining all the legal jargon in an easy way I could understand. Again, I'm so grateful to him and his staff and can't recommend him enough!

An honest and highly competent attorney
I've utilized Pedrick Law Group's services three times...once for a divorce settlement, a restraining order issue, and lastly for a property tax issue. Each time, the result was a satisfactory or better outcome. I am extremely confident in Greg Pedrick's expertise and professionalism. I wouldn't keep going back to him for legal advice and services if I didn't believe he would do his utmost to represent me and my family. Not only is he highly competent, but he maintains a demeanor which lets his clients know that he truly cares and will work deligently to represent them. Greg is thorough in prepping his clients for court or other legal appearances. As a result, I was always more confident and less anxious to speak or testify when it was necessary. His staff and associates are the best, and communication is never an issue. I highly recommend Greg Pedrick and his law group.

Any time I needed Greg for anything, he was there. He knows his business and doesn't make you feel like you're in a court room with a lot of legaleeze. Down to earth and easy to talk to.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Pedrick tied up all the loose ends for me in what was a fairly messy divorce. I only found this office after my case had languished in the courts for almost two years. Mr. Pedrick was quick and efficient. He was excellent in negotiations with the other attorneys and very strong in the courtroom. He instilled great faith in me and my case was quickly wrapped up. I recommend Mr. Pedrick and his team highly. I have already referred him to several friends in similar circumstances.
