Attorney Greg Unatin​​

Since joining Meyers Evans Lupetin & Unatin, LLC in 2006, Greg has focused on helping individuals and families whose lives were devastated by avoidable medical errors, unsafe products, and ordinary negligence. His entire legal career has been devoted to helping families and individuals impacted by catastrophic loss and injury.

A Knowledgeable and Compassionate Litigator

Greg brings a vast knowledge of the medical issues at the core of every malpractice case to each and every client he serves. His litigation experience involves a wide variety of medical malpractice and personal injury matters, including extensive experience litigating professional negligence claims arising from the delayed diagnosis and treatment of treatable medical conditions.

Greg’s efforts have helped maximize a client’s recovery from a hospital where the staffs’ complete lack of urgency in spite of severe fetal compromise caused a mother and father’s nightmare and left a little girl with profound developmental delays. He has helped clients secure significant recoveries for injury related to undiagnosed or misdiagnosed cancers. Greg has successfully represented many clients who suffered permanent injury or death due to unrecognized or mistreated infections.

Too often doctors or nurses assume a patient’s clinical signs and symptoms are related to only a single, sometimes harmless condition and treat only that false assumption,” explains Greg. “I hold physicians accountable for failing to first rule out the most dangerous, life-threatening conditions like septic shock, heart attack, or life-threatening infection. My efforts have helped secure compensation for such needless injuries as amputation, organ damage, permanent brain injury and death.”

Greg feels it is essential to forge a close and trusting relationship with each client. It’s about looking below the surface, and understanding the whole person. “I take the time to build open lines of communication with every client,” he says. 

Every client has a story. The true story of the client doesn’t start at the time of misdiagnosis at a hospital or the moment of impact in a vehicle collision. Greg strives to learn as much as possible about each client’s life before and after the physical and emotional trauma. The ultimate goal is to handle the client’s life, not just their case, even if only for the life of the lawsuit. Often this means being a friend and by the client’s side as they grapple with the day to day feelings and emotions that emerge as the result of life altering injury or death. “Every client and every case is unique. I will listen to you, understand who you are and work to meet your expectations so I can guide you through a process which you should never feel is overwhelming.”

The client is at the center of everything we do. “Personal and honest communication with you, the client, gives us the knowledge and insight we need to combine every aspect of a case – the medical facts, the witnesses, the evidence, exhibits, and ultimately, the jury – in a way that will make a meaningful and lasting impact in your life.”

People who have lost the most as a result of avoidable injury or death are those most in need of an attorney who can return them to a sense of strength and confidence. Greg is that person. He strives to build a client’s confidence – in their case, in their attorneys and in themselves.
