Note to Potential Clients:
Now accepting divorce and domestic relations clients — collaborative law approach.
I am a sole practitioner with no permanent assistant, receptionist or clerk. Most of the time, I work in an office above the garage at my home. In contemporary legal circles, this arrangement is sometimes called a “virtual law practice.” Nevertheless, if your legal matter warrants, drawing on almost twenty-five years of experience, I am able quickly to assemble a team of co-counsel and temporary staff to provide you with the legal services you need.
When you call for an appointment, you will either speak directly to me or you will reach my voice mail. If you reach me directly, I will interview you briefly about your legal problem and either make an appointment for you or, if your issue is in an area of law outside my interests or expertise, refer you to another attorney. If you reach my voice mail, please do leave a message with your name, a brief explanation of why you’re calling, and your telephone number. I will usually call back by the next business day.
In the Birmingham area, I meet clients by appointment at the Regus facility in Meadow Brook just off Highway 280 near the Meadow Brook post office. The address is 2700 Corporate Drive, Suite 200, Birmingham, Alabama 35242. I can also make arrangements to meet you at one of the four other Regus facilities in the Birmingham area. Outside of Birmingham, I will arrange to meet you in a Regus center in your city if one is available, in another law firm’s offices, or elsewhere.
The cost for an initial consultation for most legal matters is fifty dollars, payable by cash, check, or credit card. The initial consultation usually lasts around forty-five minutes but may take longer. I cannot offer free legal advice or consultation by telephone.
There is no cost to evaluate a class notice or any potential lawsuit or lawsuit defense.
Mr. Gregory is knowledgeable in multiple areas of law.
The Gregory Law Firm, P.C. has a thorough understanding of Alabama and federal law in his areas of practice. Mr. Gregory will work hard to help you get the best possible results in the following practice areas:
- Arbitration, Mediation, and Collaborative Law: Mr. Gregory is one of the most knowledgeable and seasoned lawyers in Alabama in the areas of alternative dispute resolution, mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law. He has been appointed to almost one hundred arbitration panels and has been chosen by the parties and their counsel to chair at least half of those panels. Mr. Gregory has also served as a mediator on numerous cases encompassing a wide variety of legal issues. Mr. Gregory continues to add to his skills as a mediator, as he recently attended a one-week conference on mediating complex disputes at the Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation. This conference led to Mr. Gregory’s new interest in Collaborative Law, and he is now accepting divorce and domestic relations clients (as well as others — see above link) who are interested in resolving their disputes through this out-of-court method of alternative dispute resolution.
- Securities Arbitration and Litigation: A former stockbroker and Series 7-licensed registered representative, Steven Gregory has served as an arbitrator and mediator for the Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA) since 1995, has been appointed to almost one hundred FINRA panels, and has represented both investors and registered representatives in securities arbitrations. One of the few securities lawyers in the United States with experience inside the securities industry who also serves as a FINRA arbitration panel member and mediator, Mr. Gregory knows securities arbitration from the inside as well as from the perspective of an advocate. Moreover, Mr. Gregory has served as counsel in numerous securities fraud class actions in federal courts around the country.

- Complex Litigation: Complex litigation, including class actions, shareholder derivative litigation, and antitrust litigation, requires deep knowledge of both procedural and substantive issues. Mr. Gregory has practiced in these areas over his entire 24 years of law practice, has appeared on numerous occasions before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), and has been appointed lead counsel in numerous class action proceedings.
- Business Litigation: As a business owner, it is likely that you will encounter a dispute with a client, a contractor, a counterparty, or a lender. The Gregory Law Firm can help your business resolve such disputes now and incorporate practices designed to help your company avoid them in the future. With the help of an assertive business litigation attorney, you can secure the future of your company.
- Aviation Law and Litigation: As an active private pilot since 1986, a former aircraft owner, and present member of a large flying club, Steven Gregory has served the legal needs of pilots, airplane owners, and members of the public with regard to a number of legal issues in aviation. He is a member of the panel of attorneys maintained by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and can assist pilots and aircraft owners confronted with problems or questions arising from customs matters, FAA enforcement, and sales and purchases of aircraft as well as tax and other regulatory issues. Moreover, his experience in products liability and complex litigation enable him to represent injured passengers, families, and survivors of air crash disasters, whether occurring in commercial aviation (regularly scheduled carriers or charters) or general aviation (e.g., from corporate jets to single-engine piston aircraft).
