Gregory Arthur Lawrence


Greg Lawrence’s practice is focused on injury, insurance and nursing home cases. He has handled trials in the state, federal and bankruptcy courts, including cases arising from automobile accidents, civil rights violations, real estate disputes, bankruptcy disputes and insurance disputes.

Greg graduated with honors from the University of Florida in 1993. During law school he volunteered as a “Council of Ten” tutor in the subject of tort law, which focuses on the rights and defenses associated with personal injury claims. For the first four years of his practice, Greg represented mostly insurance companies defending personal injury claims. Back then, his major clients included all of the “Hardee’s,” “Denny’s,” and “Quincy’s” restaurants in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Lake City, Florida, handling the defense of injury cases. This gave Greg unique insight into the strategies and perspectives of insurers, information which is now extremely helpful in representing injured people. Greg left the defense practice in 1998 to start his own firm focusing on plaintiff’s rights. The Lawrence Law Group’s main office is conveniently located in downtown Jacksonville on the south bank in the Riverplace Tower.

Today, Greg handles personal injury cases resulting from all types of accidents including car wrecks, truck accidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, nursing home neglect or abuse, assisted living facility neglect, dog bites and attacks, slip and falls, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace injuries, and wrongful death. Greg handles insurance claims including claims on the following types of policies: homeowners; auto; life; disability; health; and uninsured motorist. Greg also handles business litigation involving non-compete agreements, claims for unpaid wages, commissions or overtime, collections, and bankruptcy matters.

Greg is "AV" rated, which the highest rating an attorney can receive from the Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating system. Greg has volunteered as a Guardian Ad Litem, through which he has been appointed to speak on behalf of children in difficult family situations. Greg has provided pro bono legal work for local and statewide environmental organizations. For example, he handled litigation and lobbying on a pro bono basis for Guana Area Intracoastal Network, Inc., a local environmental organization. He also served on the board of the Florida Wildlife Federation for several years.

Client Reviews
I have known Mr. Lawrence for several years and in my opinion he is the most professional and trustworthy lawyer I have ever known. I have had dealings with other lawyers but they were not as good as Mr. Lawrence. I would highly recommend him. Carla
I was referred to Greg by a coworker after I received a bad injury from an auto accident and was so pleased with Greg, and staff. They literally took care of everything for me while I was healing and kept me updated every step of the way. Calls and emails were always accepted and returned promptly and they were extremely patient and helpful with any questions and concerns that I had. Should I ever need legal assistance again I will definitely be calling him and referring him to family and friends. Amie M.
I had a difficult disability case, and was referred to Greg by a judge. As an experienced lawyer myself, I was apprehensive about using someone I didn't know. As it turned out, however, I could not have been more pleased. Greg mastered the case in no time, and was nothing short of brilliant in getting me a substantial settlement. He's a lawyer's lawyer, and I recommend him highly and without reservation. Steve
I would like to take a moment to say thanks to Greg, and his staff for doing an excellent job with my deceased mothers nursing home case. After hiring two other law firms my brothers and I decided to hire Greg. This was the best decision that we made regarding this case. Greg took the time to get to know who our deceased mother was, and the important facts involving our claim. As a result Greg was successful in resolving our claim to our satisfaction. Greg is the best attorney that I have ever met! I would highly recommend hiring Greg for any nursing home, or any other claims. Falsario Arnold
Of all the things that pleased me about Greg was that he was always available to me. If I called or emailed, I spoke to him and wasn't pushed off to one of his paralegals or assistants (although they were very helpful as well). I felt like I had a lawyer - not a factory. Scott
