About Grigoriy

Learn Grigoriy’s areas of practice.

I AM COMMITTED TO HELPING MY CLIENTS.

Greg was born in the former Soviet Union and immigrated to the United States with family at the age of eleven.

He grew up in Kent, Washington, where he graduated from Kent-Meridian High School.  He then attended the University of Washington where he received his degree in political science.  He went on to earn his Juris Doctorate (Doctor of Law) degree from Gonzaga University School of Law where he was a recipient of an Achievement Merit Scholarship.

Between the time he completed his undergraduate studies and the time he attended law school, Greg worked as a real estate professional. As one of the youngest real estate agents at the time, he worked hard to learn more about the real estate industry than his older competitors. Given his strong work ethic, determination and acquired knowledge, his clients were able to see past his youth and trust his expertise. Within a short period of time Greg progressed to working with developers and builders on large development and building projects.

Greg interned at Spokane County Public Defender’s Office where he was mentored by experienced and highly knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys.  While at the Public Defender’s Office, Greg managed an extensive load of cases and routinely appeared in court. After his time at the Public Defender’s Office, Greg was employed with one of the oldest and distinguished criminal defense and personal injury firms in Spokane, Washington.  Greg has appeared for countless court hearings on various matters from simple traffic infractions to serious felony matters, and pretty much everything in between. 

Greg has a passion for working in the courtroom, arguing motions and conducting trials.  He has a unique ability to spot issues and craft creative, yet logical and credible arguments.  In fact, Greg is routinely praised by his colleagues for “great lawyering” and “thinking outside the box.”

Greg’s experiences working with people of different cultures and economic backgrounds allow him to better understand their needs and thus ensure proper legal representation.  In addition, his fluency in Russian and cultural ties to the Russian-speaking community enable him to better communicate with members of that community and provide them with access to the legal system.

Exceeded Expectations
I recently hired Community Law Firm to assist with a speeding ticket, and I couldn’t be happier with their service. The team was incredibly responsive, addressing my concerns promptly. To my surprise, they managed to get the ticket dismissed, exceeding my expectations. I highly recommend their efficient and effective legal assistance.

Greatest
I hired Greg for a DUI case. I was terrified, nervous, anxious, literally every emotion you can think of. Not to mention, this was the first time I’ve ever hired a lawyer. Throughout the process, Greg kept everything real with me, and was extremely prompt with his follow up. This helped calmed my anxiety and was also given a great outcome. I would 100% recommend Greg to anyone!

Easy to Work with and Little effort needed
I had a case dismissed for me. The firm was very easy to work with and required very little if any of my time and Greg handled the rest.

10/10!
I was inappropriately ticketed based on the account of the other driver in a minor car accident. Greg and Chris could not have made the process of ticket dismissal any easier- well worth the cost of their work. I hope to never need a service like this again but I know where to go for quality, valuable help!

Thanks
I had an accident, my car was hit by one car and I hit another car, fortunately no one was hurt. Grigoriy Sarkisayn was my lawyer who helped me a lot and won the case without fines or further problems! He always answered calls and responded to messages regarding my case on time. I am very pleased with his work, he is a true professional in his field, I recommend him to everyone.

Great Experience - Two dismissed tickets!
Mr. Sarkisyan handled two traffic citations. They unfortunately came within a few months of each other and he managed to get them both dealt with during the same hearing. He managed to get both citations dismissed. Greg promptly followed up with a conclusion. For any additional citations (which I hope are none) I certainly plan to be a returning client.
