“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin. “I have been fortunate in my career to have been surrounded by many great attorneys and mentors. One mentor taught me that it is impossible to over-prepare for a case that is going to hearing or trial. It is important to know your client, know the facts, and know the law. But most importantly, you need to outwork your opponent.”
Mr. Booth received his law degree from The University of Dayton School of Law. While in law school, Greg was a member of the Moot Court Team and a teaching assistant for Appellate Practice and Procedure. Greg received an undergraduate degree from Marquette University.
