Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
When it comes to looking for a lawyer who can get you justice, I mean real justice, not just words, there are very few who make the cut for me. And Greg makes that cut. Greg is the tops. He has taken on large companies, the government and shady (and shifty) actors to bring them to their knees. Could not endorse anyone with more enthusiasm. He is not a good or great lawyer - he is among the few pre-eminent lawyers you would be lucky to have on your team.
Rajiv Nagaich Estate planning Attorney
I worked with Greg on a large class action againtst the State of Washington. Although I had only worked on case a short time, the great result for the plaintiffs would not have been possible but for the years of blood, sweat, and tears that Greg poured into that case. Greg is a relentless litigator, and I'm proud that I had the opportunity to work alongside him.
