Biography

Gregory B. Smith can relate to just about anybody.

Not only has he handled more cases that just about any other attorney is Utah, he has trained over 40 attorneys, including some of the best criminal defense attorneys in Utah.

Attorney Smith graduated from Columbine High School in Colorado as class president way back in 1982, and was selected to first team all state in football. He was then given a football scholarship to play for the Y under LaVell Edwards (while a missionary in Argentina in 1984, his Cougars won the national championship). However, most of his kids have attended the U, so he loves everybody in Utah.

Greg has practiced law for more than 25 years, and has gotten countless criminal charges for people dismissed, made sure many employees got properly paid, and helped many people get out of debt (he's filed over 1,800 bankruptcies).

When he got out of law school, attorney Smith worked in a prosecutor's office in South Texas, and prosecuted cases under the "third year practice" rule. Attorney Smith missed Utah, so decided to come back home.

Greg Smith has put on lectures for other attorneys, and has always been an attorney that his client could rely on and afford. He started one of Utah's first low-cost law firms back in the early 1990s.

He would love to talk to you about your case.
