Having practiced family law exclusively since 1998, Greg has a keen understanding of the human impact of family difficulties, including and beyond their legal issues. He has extensive experience using collaborative law and knows that for many families, avoiding the courts in favour of coming to mutual legal agreement on matters results in the most satisfying resolution.

He is a founding member of Collaborative Practice Manitoba and has served as its Chair, a member of its Management Committee, and as a committee member.  Greg is a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Greg is a mediator and an arbitrator, receiving his training in 2005 from the Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Manitoba.

Greg teaches the Clinical Family Law course in the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba, where he is also a frequent speaker. He has been a regular guest speaker on family law matters at the Manitoba Bar Association and the Law Society of Manitoba as well.

Greg was named to the Best Lawyers International list for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Greg was awarded the Family Lawyer of the Year 2018 in Winnipeg by Best Lawyers, has been named as a leading practitioner by Lexpert in its 2018 Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, and  is listed as a Top Lawyer in the Global Directory of Who’s Who as a Lifetime member.

In his off hours, Greg expresses his creative side as a musician and band member of Say Uncle! The group released its self-titled debut album in January 2014 and its second CD “Scattered Seeds” in January 2017. Find out more at sayunclecanada.com
