Gregg R. Woodnick

Head Attorney

After graduating from Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and then spending the first decade of his legal practice working with his mentor, Lon S. Taubman, trying complex child custody, child abuse, and criminal matters, Gregg founded Gregg R. Woodnick PLLC (now known as Woodnick Law). Gregg has a pointed interest in helping clients not only solve their current legal challenges, but also minimize the possibility of needing his services ever again.

Although Gregg’s cases run the gamut from simple family conflict to complicated child abuse allegations his approach to every case is remarkably consistent: he weighs the psychological and sociological factors that many lawyers ignore, and that empowers him to negotiate healthy results for his clients. His insight and focus on all aspects of his cases gives him an advantage in the courtroom when trial is necessary.

Gregg is a staunch proponent of same-sex rights, and proudly served as cooperating counsel for the ACLU. Gregg has been a guest instructor at Midwestern College of Osteopathic Medicine, and an adjunct professor at the Arizona Summit School of law, and has provided legal commentary for both NBC News and National Public Radio (NPR).

In his free time, Gregg enjoys hiking, wrangling his active kids, and obsessively searching neighborhood real estate trends through Zillow.
