About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing  bankruptcy law since 1979 in both Eastern and Western Washington.  In this time I have represented a lot of clients. When I am not working I enjoy travel (I have lived in both Sydney Australia and Rio de Janeiro Brazil) sports, a good dinner and a nice bottle of wine. A good movie or book also get my attention.

Outstanding Attorney
We contacted Greg to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in 2010. Our experience from the start has been nothing but positive. Greg is very personable and friendly, and unlike some attorneys, will always respond to our questions very promptly. He has handled our bankruptcy extremely professionally from the get-go, and we couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommended.

A lighthouse counsel
Greg Jalbert is experienced, attentive, confident, and directive. He is clear in his questions and advice, which is a blessing for those struggling to make tough life choices. Most of all, he is compassionate and non-judgmental. Greg's humane approach helped to soften the fall of contemplating bankruptcy after working earnestly and successfully all of my adult years, and enjoying good credit until last year. I am glad that I chose Greg -- a symbolic light at the end of the tunnel that I could not see before he led me through the pros and cons of Chapter 7.

Accessible counseling!
I rcently had a counseling session with Greg. I brought some very sensitive financial information and a fair amount of anxiety to the interview. I was immediately made comfortable, and Greg's advice and explanations were clear and accessible. My options were explained to me in real world terms, and I am now ready for whatever comes.
