Superior Business Litigation Attorney
Greg Olson is a superior attorney. He defended my company in a business litigation matter efficiently and effectively. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, personable and excellent advocate.

Settled Several Legal Issues with Professionalism and Efficiency
Business attorney Greg Olson has helped my husband and I with business litigation as it related to the closure of our business. This has been a less than desirable situation that Greg has made much easier for us. Not only is Greg able to breakdown the legal jargon into simple terms, but he is very knowledgeable about the law and was able to help us settle several legal issues with professionalism and efficiency.

Great Attorney, always pays attention to every detail
The moment i hired Grag, he listened to my concerns and came up with a well prepared possible outcomes and how to deal with them. He was giving thorough updates every time when we had to deal with opposite party. I recommend Greg in all civil matters based on his wide understanding of things and how to solve them peacefully.

Excellent Attorney
Greg worked on an ongoing consulting basis for my company in employment law. He is knowledgeable, easy to understand, conscientious and diligent. My most exemplary recommendation for Mr. Olsen. Had we not moved to Arizona, were would still be doubtlessly retaining Greg.

Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity
Greg expertly handled two very different legal situations for me recently. He explained the legal processes that applied to my situations in layman terms so that I was confident that I could make the correct decisions. Both situations were resolved in a favorable manner.
