Greg has successfully handled hundreds of cases in a variety of different areas in both state and federal court on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. While no result can be guaranteed in a specific case, Greg has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients in past cases. Greg has also represented a number of defendants who were sued for significant sums of money, but who ultimately did not have to pay anything to the plaintiff.

Some of the specific types of cases are:
• Catastrophic Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
• Automobile and 18-wheeler Wrecks
• Business Torts
• Construction Defects
• Contract Disputes
• Estate Disputes

Greg’s approach to litigation focuses on finding the most efficient and cost-effective path to reaching the best possible result for the client. If opportunities for early settlement or other alternative dispute resolution techniques exist, they will be pursued. However, in the event that a lawsuit does ultimately arise, Greg zealously advocates for his clients and is fully prepared to take a case all the way through a jury trial, and the appeal process if necessary.

​One of the most valuable things that a person can leave for his/her loved ones is a well-reasoned estate plan. While none of us enjoys considering our own mortality, ignoring the possibility of death is not wise. Greg has helped many families create an estate plan involving wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advanced healthcare directives, family limited partnerships, and other estate planning tools. Estate planning not only can save time and money, it also eliminates stress and prevents family disagreements during an already difficult process following the death of a loved one.

Greg has also assisted clients in the probate/administration of large and small estates alike all over the State of Mississippi. Greg’s goal is to handle the estate’s affairs as efficiently and economically as possible while being sensitive to the needs of his clients as they cope with the loss of a loved one. Greg understands the probate procedure from start to finish and is prepared to assist you during this important process.
