Background and Experience
Greg graduated with honors from The Citadel where he received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. In 1997, he received his law degree from Cumberland School of Law. For the first four and a half of years of his legal career, Greg served as a Deputy District Attorney for the Jefferson County, Alabama District Attorney’s office. He had tried his first death penalty case by the age of 26. He went on to try as either solo or lead counsel seven capital murder cases and six murder cases. He also had the benefit of being the first lawyer in Alabama to be certified by the Alabama State Troopers as a Traffic Homicide Investigator. He obtained this title after attending a two-week seminar, which required him to live in a closed military base with forty other police officers. He also had the unique experience of being provided alcohol in a controlled setting so he could be utilized by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s training academy for officers learning how to administer field sobriety tests.
