Brilliant Attorney
Greg Cartwright is a brilliant attorney who was able to see the big picture of what needed be done to win my case; while paying astute attention to all of the important details. He was like a guiding light that was always there for us to answer questions and clarify each step toward the goal. Greg works with years of experience and incredible knowledge of the law, a firm hand, and kind explanations. He is honest, caring, and sincere. We were able to come to a fair resolution in a relatively short time due to Greg’s amazing efficiency, thus saving us thousands of dollars. We are so happy we found this gifted lawyer!

Outstanding, results-oriented attorney
Greg is a top-notch attorney who gets great results for his clients while keeping his relationships with them on a very personal, interactive level. I have not only referred potential clients to Greg, with spectacular results, I have consulted with him personally on more than one occasion for his expertise and insight into areas of the law he knows far better than I. I give Greg my highest endorsement.

Greg is smart, efficient and thorough. Where some attorneys overcomplicate the issues, Greg provides a clear and straightfoward solution. I have both worked with him as a client, and referred him with confidence to my own clients. He is a delight to work with.

Client Review
Greg consulted on a personal project of mine and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Greg's legal knowledge is evident in his attention to detail and thorough analysis of the issues at hand. One aspect of Greg's work that I found impressive was his ability to tackle issues in an aggressive manner when faced with daunting tasks. I feel that the professionalism exhibited by Greg is unparalleled and I would not hesitate seeking his services in the future.

Honesty, Trustworthy and Reliable Attorney
I was only a few weeks in the country when I retained the services of The Cartwright Law Group. Though I had years of corporate experience in Canada -- my venture into the United States had been my first attempt to establish a company in a foreign country. As such, I was in need of a lawyer who was approachable, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Since that time Greg Cartrwright has assisted in many legal situations from the establishment of our corporations to lease negotiations and termination agreements. He was the lead contact during a multinational lawsuit that allowed us to move away from a destructive partnership by establishing a Mutual Termination and Release. In my experience, Mr. Cartwright is an attorney who believes in the establishment of long term relationships, he is an invaluable resource for information and a attorney who puts the well being of his clients above all other priorities. As of today I still use his firm to handle a significant portion of my legal needs and would recommend his services to anyone looking for an honest, down to earth person to offer them sound legal advice and guidance.
