About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

It is difficult to find an attorney as experienced and aggressive. In law school, I spent my extra hours working for the California Supreme Court, the California Appellate Courts, and the California Attorney General. After passing the bar exam on my first try, I served as Deputy Attorney General for six years, handling major cases. My success was recognized: I was invited to lecture on law at Duke University, the University of San Diego, and Hastings, and participated in the Law Reviews of many other Universities. I came to the private sector in 2004, and been lead counsel on landmark cases. Again, I was honored to be recognized for my success. 

Few others have the experimce and record that I have. And no one fights for my clients like I do. I have been so successful because I put my client above all else, and I use all my experience, all my skill, and everything in my power to get you the best result possible. If I take your case, you can be assured that I won't rest until we win.

Greg represented me in a civil matter, a legal matter and an employment matter. I fully trusted Greg with my cases and was never disappointed. Greg prepared me for every outcome and what to expect and it was truly a good fight. I'm glad I chose Greg and would do it again if I had to.

Awesome attorney!
Greg helped me out of a sticky situation when no other lawyer would take my case. He held my hand through a complex litigation and saved me thousands! I highly recommend him and will come back if I ever need help again.

Stay away from this attorney
The State bar is investigating this attorney for very serious crimes. In my opinion Mr Walston is mentally ill. He is a pathological liar. And eventually you will lose his license and hopefully he will be incarcerated.

Hi Steve, To our knowledge, we're not under investigation by any entity. We do know, for a fact, that we are suing you for sexually abusing our staff.
