I was arrested for a DV charge that I didn't commit, and also had the Sheriff completely lie in the police report. Originally another attorney was handling my case. I dropped her after finding Greg here on Avvo. It was the best decision I could have made. The previous attorney did not address my concerns, didn't communicate what was going on, etc... Greg was the complete opposite. Even during my first phone call to Greg, he took almost an hour to talk to me, explaining everything in great detail, hearing my side, everything that my previous attorney did not do.
Greg is extremely smart and operated with full command of the law. The criminal court system is completely out of balance and unfair, especially if you are a male being accused of assault. Greg was not only able to have my charge amended to something that wasn't assault, but got it deferred for a year in which it will fall off my record. Had I not had any prior record, I am confident that Greg could have easily gotten this bogus charge dismissed for me, but since he couldn't because of the state laws, he did the next best thing.
Greg has a lot of knowledge and rapport with the prosecutors and judges at multiple court houses. You want an attorney that knows what kind of prosecutor and judge they are up against, otherwise it's like swinging blind and hoping to get a good hit. Just based on knowing this alone, I wouldn't pick anyone else.
I was treated with the utmost compassion, respect, and understanding while I dealt with this situation. Many times Greg and I had conversations about other things aside from the legal issues. He really is a down to earth, nice guy, with your best interest in mind. Can't tell you how many other attorneys are just there to collect a check, and not bother to talk to their client. This was not Greg at all. I knew everything going on at all times, communication was excellent, easy, and didn't get ignored for 2 weeks like other typical attorneys.
If you get into any kind of criminal trouble, I cannot recommend Greg enough, plain and simple. Class act all the way. Former military and a real gentlemen. Don't hurt yourself by using a public defender. You want Greg on your side instead.

Had an DV issue and hired Greg. He talked me through the process. He always seemed to call when I had a question in mind. His follow up was awesome. He is very professional and compassionate.

I was falsely accussed of committing a crime after a night out at a restaurant with a group of people. Though i knew i was innocent i still made sure i hired a strong lawyer just to play it safe. Court system can be very confusing, stressful & unpredictable. Greg read my case and instantly knew the allegations were extremely suspicious and no evidence of a crime being committed. He is well respected with his peers and more importantly has a very confident demeanor. I would refer him to my friends & family. Prosecutors dropped my case.

When the Judge suggests that you thank your attorney because he did a fantastic job, you know you have a good attorney. I had no idea with to expect or what to do when I received a DUI. I was told to hire an attorney. I picked Greg because of his location, but then when I met him, I knew I was in good hands. He was calm and reassuring, which in turn, kept me focused. The final outcome was more than I could have hoped for! Greg knows his stuff and he is compassionate and caring. But most of all, he was patient; he answered his calls and responded to every email and question immediately and was never condescending. He was never too busy to answer, help or just listen. I will definitely recommend Greg to my friends, family and co-workers if they ever find themselves in a bind. I can never thank him enough. gr

I was arrested for DUI back in July and after spending 12 terrifying hours in lockup, I started calling lawyers the next day. Greg was very prompt in responding and spent about 2 hours on a Saturday calming me down, walking me through various possible scenarios. I met with him once and that was enough to convince me to hire him.
He did not falsely sugar-coat anything and talked to me with straight facts, no BS. He was in constant touch with me through the months my case was pending and was always available to talk at any time. His great experience came in handy as he directed me to various steps I needed to complete before the pre-trial hearings.
Even though my case was a slam dunk and I was out of all hope of even getting the charge reduced. But Greg was able to pull a rabbit out of the hat for me and got my charge reduced to reckless driving. He helped me make better the worst decision I have made so far.
Throughout the case I was assured by the way that the prosecutor and the judge greeted him. It spoke towards his experience dealing with cases and I could see the respect he got in the courtroom. At the end of my sentencing for the Reckless Driving plea, the judge mentioned how diligently/vigorously Greg follows up for his clients and that I should thank him for the reducing of the charge. I must say, I agree wholeheartedly.
One last thing, I talked to many firms but always had the fear that I would talk to a senior lawyer once and then my case would be handed off and ignored. This is not the case with Greg. He was fully dedicated to my case.
I would recommend him to be THE go to guy. He will take care of your issues.

I hired Greg after a DUI charge in FEB 2016. One of the reasons that caught my attention was he is a Veteran like myself and also because of this websites reviews. Greg was always and I mean always there to answer questions when you have them. He is very knowledgeable and communicates clearly and effectively with not only his clients but also with those on the other side. In OCT 2016 a week before trial, Greg was able to secure a very good plea bargain and it saved my career and family. Thank you again sir

I recently hired Greg to take over my DV case after my first lawyer delayed my case without asking me and contually failed to communicate in a timely manner. Greg could not be more different than my first lawyer, he is always on time and comunicates everything right away. Greg accurately predicted what the prosecution would do and was ready to successfully counter them everytime. Through Greg's hard work and diligence he was able to get my case dismissed which was the best possible outcome I could have hoped for. Hiring Greg was the right choice and I can honestly say he was worth every penny and in fact it was the best money I have ever spent in my entire life. If you are considering hiring Greg I encourage you to stop considering and hire him right away.

I contacted Greg over a year ago now to help me out with a Domestic Violence charge that could have ruined everything if I had been convicted. I reached out to Greg via email initially, and within an hour he was already calling me. I instantly felt comfortable with Greg, as he was very reassuring, and gave me great instruction on how to protect myself over the course of the process. As it turned out, my case ended up being more complicated, but Greg stayed with me every step of the way. The biggest lesson I learnt through the court process from Greg was to remain patient. I like that he is a no frills attorney, he is direct and does not sugar coat anything. This helped to keep me motivated because I never had any false assumptions going into the process. In the end, Greg was able to get my case dismissed which was the best outcome I could have achieved. Do not look any further than Greg if you want an honest attorney who will always treat you with respect through the process.

I consider myself lucky I found Greg. His mastery of the legal system ultimately led to the dismissal of the DUI charge. He is capable of explaining the legal system in simple, direct terms and understands the trauma that such an experience can create. I strongly recommend his services.

Best lawyer out there! Excellent communicater answered all my questions via text phone call and email. My dui case was clear everything was there, guilty as charge I have no hope until I hired Greg, he worked it out and get it reduced to reckless, he will tell you as it's no sugar coating and he is the best at what he does. I will recommend him especially if you think you have been accused unfairly. Even if you have not he is the best deal out there, I will suggest you give him a call.
