Utah Legal Elite || Top Lawyers In Utah
St. George, Utah

Professional: Preparedness, efficiency and responsiveness – each is key to a successful outcome in litigation. As an experienced litigation specialist and trial attorney, having successfully represented hundreds of clients in a variety of matters, Greg approaches each new matter for continuing clients and new clients alike as being unique.

Indeed, no two client matters are alike; each has its own set of practical challenges.

Greg firmly believes each legal matter should be client-directed, meaning the attorney, as counselor, explains the legal and practical options for resolving a matter and the client, upon being fully informed, directs the course of action within the bounds of the law.

Personal: Greg is an avid road cyclist, weight/cross trainer and overall fitness enthusiast. He is a student of cultural, political, religious and social histories. He also enjoys hiking and camping with his wife and children and coaching youth sports.
