Background

In the summer of 1973, young Greg was glued to the TV — along with much of the nation — following the historic Watergate hearings. That year, 13-year-old Greg decided he wanted to be a lawyer when he grew up. Ironically, his family then lived in Yorba Linda, California, the birthplace of Richard Nixon. It wasn’t just Watergate that affected Greg so deeply. Because of the civil rights movement, the war protests, striking farm workers — he knew he wanted a profession where he would be helping people.

He experienced legal work for the first time as a college student at Weber State College in Ogden, Utah. During his junior and senior years, he worked part time at Utah Legal Services helping with cases involving social services, veterans’ affairs, and indigent housing. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics in 1981, he entered law school at Lewis and Clark College in Portland. As a law student, he worked for the Clackamas County Office of Community Corrections and supervised former prisoners serving terms of probation. By his second year, he was clerking for the Clackamas County Counsel There dealt with cases in employment, land use, and contracts. He earned his law degree and passed the Oregon State Bar in 1984.

Fresh from law school, Greg went to work for the general practice firm of Biggs Hutchison Hammond & Walsh in Oregon City. Because the firm had a contract with the Clackamas County cities of West Linn and Gladstone, Greg gained the opportunity to not only defend but also prosecute cases. In 1986, he obtained his first job with a personal injury firm, Haugh & Foote of Portland. He was with that firm for 11 years before moving into solo practice in 1997.
