Greg joined the firm as an associate in July 2002 to practice Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income law. Born in Albany, New York, he graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., in 1980, and went on to complete his Juris Doctor degree in 1984 at the University at Buffalo Law School. In 1985, he was admitted to the New York State Bar. He is also admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York.
Greg is a member and past chair of the Disability, Labor and Employment Law Committee of the Monroe County Bar Association.
Together with his children Katie and Colin, Greg attends Browncroft Community Church in Penfield, New York. For relaxation, Greg enjoys skiing, swimming, soccer and watching NFL football. He is the founding manager/player for Pittsford United Soccer Club’s Over-50 team.
Greg credits his late mother, Gail C. Phillips, as the person who has influenced his life the most, because she was able to raise three sons as a single mother. Acknowledging Jesus Christ as Savior, and a firm belief in the passage from the Gospel of Mark (5:36), “Don’t be afraid; just believe,” form the cornerstones of Greg’s life.
