Greg has a wide range of experience in the areas Corporate/Commercial Services, Creditors’ Rights, and all aspects of Civil Litigation, including participation in several successful arbitrations and jury trials. On multiple occasions, Greg successfully defended companies in litigation where professional design work or employee negligence was alleged to have resulted in serious bodily injury. Greg represents clients in multiple industries, notably car dealers and auto-related third-party product vendors, in compliance consultation and consumer disputes.
Additionally, Greg represents homeowners’ associations and material suppliers, providing consultation related to statutory compliance, filing, and enforcement of liens. In addition to HOAs, Greg represents residents, landlords, and tenants. His experience on both sides of these and other disputes gives him a unique perspective when counseling clients and negotiating with adverse parties. Greg devotes the majority of his practice to creditors seeking payment from debtors on accounts ranging from a few thousand to tens of millions of dollars.
Greg negotiates professionally and effectively with opposing parties or counsel in an effort to reach the timely and economical resolution to disputes and will utilize varied litigation techniques to encourage resolution or move the matter quickly to trial or hearing. In matters where a client is seeking payment, a judgment alone may not be enough to obtain recovery. In those cases, Greg utilizes his broad array of strategies learned in over a decade of professional experience to aggressively pursue judgment debtors and recover payment. Greg will also consult with clients to strategize, avoid, or prepare for remedies available to debtors and trustees in bankruptcy, and he represents creditors in bankruptcy proceedings to protect their rights and to obtain as much recovery as possible.
