Greg Degeyter hails from Bridge City, Texas. Having both a disabled father and son, he has experienced the trauma of lost income caused by serious workplace injuries. Greg knows firsthand the difficulties you can have when dealing with complex Social Security laws.
After graduating from law school in 2007, Greg launched a solo practice handling personal injury cases. The experience he gained in these cases provided the perfect foundation for him to fight for himself when he suffered his own personal injury. Greg’s own injury, his family history, and his experience with personal injury cases all drew him to the practice area of Social Security.
Since childhood, he had dreamed of being a television meteorologist. However, while working at the EPA in 2001, he was injured in a car accident and had to stop working for seven months. When he returned to the work force, he took a job troubleshooting computers for an international company, Service Zone. His supervisor was an attorney who suggested he had the makings of a good lawyer and urged him to take the LSAT, a test required for admission to most law schools. He took the LSAT “just to humor him,” did well on it and was accepted to the South Texas College of Law in Houston where he received his J.D. in 2007.
