Greg grew up in Chicago’s North suburbs where he remains today. After graduating from New Trier High School in 2007, Greg received a National Merit Scholarship to attend the University of Minnesota. While studying Sociology there, Greg began to develop a passion and love for the law. He graduated with a double-major in Sociology and English Literature in 2012, having received numerous Dean’s List awards.

 

Greg chose to follow his passion for the law and attended The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. While at John Marshall, Greg qualified for, and obtained his Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711 License in 2014. Utilizing this license, Greg accepted a licensed law clerk position with The Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender, and was trusted with defending indigent clients in bond hearings, arraignments, preliminary hearings, and investigations.

 

During his second semester with The Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender, Greg participated in a First Degree Murder trial, having assisted in jury selection, witness preparation, and throughout the trial process. 

 

While at John Marshall, Greg also participated in the John Marshall Restorative Justice Program. He was an integral leader in implementing a Restorative Justice Program within a high school on Chicago’s South Side. At that school, Greg worked closely with many freshman students to develop the program and help mentor the students.

 

In 2015, Greg earned his Juris Doctor from The John Marshall Law School with a Certificate in Trial Advocacy. In November 2015, Greg became a licensed attorney with the Illinois State Bar.

Greg was thrilled to join Mayerbock Law Firm after receiving an offer in early 2016. During his time with Mayerbock Law Firm, Greg has taken on numerous civil and criminal cases. He enjoys working closely with clients to help solve legal issues and represent them as diligently as possible.
