About me

I have been a strong advocate for my clients since 1996. I have met some wonderful people over those years and I love what I do. I am a very zealous advocate for my clients and I think my clients know this and appreciate my hard work. I am not interested in cutting corners or taking the easy route and I give my clients my all. It's important to me to have that personal relationship and build a level of trust with my clients. When you hire the firm of Grecco Downs, PLLC you can be sure that you will receive the personalized attention that you deserve.
