Greg Thompson

My mission is to resolve every dispute that comes before me where possible. In those cases that can’t be resolved, I want the parties to feel they were treated fairly and ethically and that I explored every possible avenue of resolution. I will work hard to crystallize the relevant issues and move the case toward the day when resolution is more likely.
