I've practiced in Oregon since 1978, primarily in the Eugene-Springfield area.

After several years with the Lane County District Attorney, I joined a long standing area law firm focusing on personal injury, civil rights and criminal defense.

I'm a member of the Americn Trial Lawyers Association, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and Oregon Criminal Defense Attorneys (Past President).  I'm licensed in all state and federal courts including the United States Supreme Court.  

I take my civic obligations seriously, and have served on various boards and committees working toward improvements in legal representation and access to the law during my entire career.

I enjoy practicing in a small firm environment...no cookie cutter responses to my clients' problems.  I aim to provide highly personalized service to each and everyone of them.  As a result, I've been able to achieve substantial financial settlements and judgments in injury and insurance cases and violations of individual civil rights.  In defending against criminal charges, I've successfully challenged the state's evidence with resulting not guilty verdicts, substantially reduced charges and favorable plea negotioans.

My aim....listen carefully, respect the humanity in each client and represent vigorously.

I consider it a privilege to be able to protect my clients in our often complicated legal system.

Heart and Soul
I am writing today to share my experience with one of the finest attorneys I have ever met. I come from a long line of attorneys myself, so after a vicious dog attack that left me with a horrible injury to my face, I knew who to go to for the best handling of my case. Greg Veralrud is not only an incredible attorney, he is a really nice person. I wanted the best, but I also needed an attorney with a big heart and the ability to show empathy and compassion to me at a very painful time in my life. Greg Veralrud more than delivered. He treated my case as if it were his own child that had been attacked. Greg Veralrud has the “eye of the tiger;” and you cannot buy that kind of representation. Greg Veralrud is a Tiger. I am more than pleased I went to Mr. Veralrud because he fought for me tooth and nail and got me a great result. Greg Veralrud truly went the extra mile. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Veralrud if you are seeking an attorney who will take your case seriously, value you as a person and a client, and really treat your case as if it were his own. You will be very happy that you did because no matter what he is going fight very hard for you to get the best result that is possible.

Highly Recommended
I recently had the need to acquire legal services and Mr. Veralrud came highly recommended; from the moment I met with him I understood why. Mr. Veralrud had the ability to take a very complex issue and break it down to manageable pieces, clearly explain all possible outcomes, and set reasonable expectations. He and his staff keep me well informed of how things were progressing and were very timely in returning my phone calls. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome of my case and felt the fees I paid were very reasonable based on the complexity of my case. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Veralrud for any of your legal needs.

Honest evaluation of my situation
Mr Veralrud responded the day after I posted my request. He explained that it would be a difficult case to prove and probably would not be worth pursuing.

Look no more, Veralrud: The best in Eugene!
Greg Veralrud exceeded our expectations! Sometimes law enforcement and Prosecutors are so eager for a "win" that they don't do their due diligence in uncovering ALL the facts about a case. When this happens, lives and reputations can be compromised or even ruined. Thanks to Mr. Veralrud and his incredibly professional assistant Terri, we received an outcome with absolutely no charges. This was fair and what we hoped for but did not expect when the case started. He is very knowledgeable, committed, respectful, thorough, strategic and results oriented. He's also not inexpensive but ive always been a firm believer in that old saying, "You get what you pay for". Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Greg and Terri!

He Took Care of Everything!
Greg has helped my family whenever we got into some legal troubles. This time he had to help me with a huge traffic offense as I decided not to pull over for the police when I was on my motorcycle and eventually got caught. 4 charges got dropped down to one and I got the bare minimum fine and minimum probation period. Very pleased with how it turned out.

The best!
I came to Greg Veralrud with a laundry list of false charges that were put on me. Immediately after meeting with him I knew he was the help I needed. He is a great attorney and a great man! Greg worked very hard to get me the results I needed, he treated me like family the whole time. I highly recommend Greg Veralrud to anyone who needs a good defense attorney.

We are so thankful for Mr Veralrud and team
We recently hired Mr Veralrud based on his strong online reviews. We do not live in Oregon so finding a trustworthy attorney was an overwhelming task. My son received a hit & run citation as he drove his sister to the ER after a bus hit her. Mr Veralud is an excellent attorney who knows the law well and is very knowledgeable about the Eugene court system. He was able to get the case dismissed based on his knowledge of the law and strong communications skills with the court system. We will always be forever grateful to Greg and his team in helping our family through a difficult time. Mr Veralrud is a knowledgeable, trustworthy and thorough attorney that we would definitely recommend to a friend.

Very Helpful!!!
He was able to have the more serious charge dropped, and the fine on the less serious charge reduced. He communicated well and his office was always respectful and helpful.

All around great Attorney
Having Greg represent me, made me feel like I was in good hands. From the first moment, he was a stong communicator. Letting me know all of my option, with every possible outcome. Keeping me informed, every step of the way. His experience got my case dismissed. He was very proffesional and worth every penny!! Thanks again Greg!

Highly recommend
I have worked with Mr. Veralrud on a couple of occasions in which I needed legal counsel. Each time I found him to be extremely responsive, knowledgeable and detail oriented. He fully explained all of my options and delivered the best outcome that I could have asked for. I would definitely use Mr. Veralrud again and would highly recommend him to others.

Recommendation of Greg Veralrud
When I was discriminated against at my workplace, I sought legal advice from Greg Veralrud. He patiently listened to my complaint and then advised me on my options. It was a trying time for me and Greg's knowledge of the law helped me understand what legal action I could take and a wide-eyed understanding of how such a complaint would be processed, how long it would take for a resolution and the likelihood of my success. He quickly submitted legal paperwork to preserve my ability to sue for six months, giving me time to thoughtfully consider the ramifications of each option and decide how I wanted to proceed. Greg was accessible, provided excellent advice, and responded in a most timely manner. I highly recommend Greg Veralrud.
