Gregory J. Sowder has practiced law in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. He worked over 18 years as a litigator at a statewide civil litigation firm which was hired to defend personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. He knows the defense side playbook. He also defended multi-million dollar claims brought by very successful personal injury lawyers and knows their playbook too. This gives Greg a unique perspective. He knows how both sides think, knows what the defendant will most likely do to win, and knows strategies to work up the best case he can for his clients to recover compensation for their injuries.
Greg’s first job working in the Bay Area was at a firm which offered estate planning services to its clients. He enjoys working with his clients to develop their estate plans to provide for their families, children, and friends after their death.
Greg grew up in Northern California in Chico and attended college at UC Davis. He graduated from law school at Rutgers University in New Jersey. He is a member of the American Bar Association and the Alameda County Bar Association. He lives in Berkeley with his wife, Kris.
