Attorney Gregory A. Germain: over 30 years of experience!
My name is Greg Germain and I have been a practicing lawyer in Northeastern Pennsylvania for over thirty years. I attended the University of Scranton where I served as President of the Pre-Law Society and later attended the Catholic University Columbus School of Law in Washington D.C. While in law school I worked in the legal department of the U.S. Railway Association during the Con-Ed Bankruptcy proceedings and later at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. I also interned at the Columbus School of Law Legal Services Office on N. Capital Street and provided help to indigent citizens who could not afford a lawyer. I returned to Northeast Pennsylvania and clerked for the Hon. Daniel L. Penetar in the Orphans Court Division of the Court of Common Pleas of Lackawanna County. Soon after I founded the Law Firm of Gregory A. Germain and I have practiced law in the concentrated areas of personal injury and estates.
In regard to my practice in personal injury I have had the esteemed pleasure to represent countless individuals and families throughout Pennsylvania and to assist them through the legal process in order to obtain justice and compensation for their loss. I have successfully represented mothers, fathers, and children who have either been seriously injured or whose family member was killed or injured due to the negligence of driver, a product manufacturer, a property owner or medical provider. I have also litigated numerous claims for workers compensation and I am proud to state that I have assisted many hardworking truckers, warehouse employees, forklift operators, nurses, dietary workers and others who have injured their bodies on the job to recovery medical and indemnity benefits from their employers’ insurance companies.
In my estate practice I use my expertise to help families, business owners, and professionals to plan their estates and to preserve their home and assets for themselves and for their next generation. I assist clients from all walks of life including the poor, the moderately wealthy and the very rich. I prepare Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorneys, Shareholder Agreements, Agreements of Sale, Deeds, Mortgages and other documents which are designed to meet the specific needs of my clients. I am particularly proficient in helping the elderly and their families to evaluate their personal and financial situations and to take the necessary steps to protect their person and their estate. Few lawyers today are regularly involved with Medicaid Planning and I am proud to have helped many aging couples and individuals to plan ahead to protect their hard earned income and assets from Medicaid liens and creditors.
Recently, the lawyers of the Lackawanna County Bar Association elected me to be their Vice-President and President-elect. I will be install as President of the Lackawanna County Bar Association commencing January 2018. I am honored and humbled by the confidence that my fellow lawyers have shown for me and I would be honored to represent you in any matter involving personal injury, workers compensation, estate planning and elder law.
