About Gregg

Gregg_Redmond_Attorney_Rochester_NY-683x

Hi, I’m Gregg H. Redmond. I have been practicing law since 1994, first in an insurance defense firm, later in a small general practice and now as a solo practitioner since 2000. With over 25 years of experience in various fields,

I can help you with your legal matter.

My family is from Greece, NY and my office is on Long Pond Road between Ridge Road and Unity Hospital. I graduated from St. John Fisher College in Pittsford and the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. I was a volunteer firefighter for 10 years and still volunteer for community groups like Honor Flight Rochester, Greece Historical Society and Habitat for Humanity.

My goal is to provide the experienced guidance clients need with the personal attention to each file that clients want and deserve. Providing sound legal advice means listening to the client’s situation and goals, knowing and researching the law and informing the client of the best way to achieve their goals.

I hope to act as a lighthouse to guide people through the rough seas of legal red tape to guide them into safe harbors.

Areas Of Practice

<p class="font_8"><strong>Estate planning</strong> allows your decisions to control your life and provides comfort and direction to your family through the basic tools of a Will, Power of Attorney and Living Will/Health Proxy. Administration of a loved one’s estate, whether they had a will or not, requires experienced guidance through the Surrogates Court requirements, collecting and administering the assets and managing family expectations.&nbsp;</p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center"><strong>Wills</strong></p>
<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center">&nbsp;A Last Will and Testament is a document that controls where your assets will pass after your death. An Executor is names to handle the administration of your estate. Their duties are to collect your assets, pay the bills and distribute things as your Will directs. A successor Executor should also be named. A Guardian over any minor children should also be named. An alternate should also be named. A Trustee should also be named to handle the property passing to minor children. It can be the same person as the Guardian or a different selection. The assets can be distributed to the children as they age with directions in your Will. You can also remember churches or charities in your Will and make specific gifts to individuals. Special provisions may be made in your Will for Special Needs Trusts for the placement and care of pets as well. You should review your Will and any Letter to the Executor on an annual basis.</p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center"><strong>Power of Attorney</strong></p>
<p class="font_8">A Power of Attorney enables someone to handle financial matters during your lifetime. People usually name their spouse and an alternate, in case of an accident where both of you are injured and unable to act. The POA is only effective during your lifetime. Your Executor should handle your financial matters after your lifetime. Your agent has to accept the duties of being the agent and agree to following your instructions and, where there are no instructions, to act in your best interest. To revoke a Power of Attorney and name a new agent, a Revocation must be properly signed and served on the former agent notifying them that they no longer have the authority to act on your behalf. We can guide you through the legal steps necessary to prepare, execute and, when necessary, revoke Powers of Attorney.</p>
<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center"><br></p>
<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center"><strong>Living Will and Health Care Proxy</strong></p>
<p class="font_8">A Living Will and Health Care Proxy are important documents regardless of your age. During times of medical emergencies, these documents serve you by designating who you want to make decisions for you and what treatment you desire or not. You may select a family member or trusted friend to speak for you when you cannot speak for yourself.</p>

Estate Planning

<p class="font_8">If a loved one has passed while leaving a will, the nominated executor should contact this office. If no will can be found, a loved one may be appointed administrator of the estate by the Surrogate’s Court. Gregg H. Redmond has the experience to guide you through the entire process. Once appointed by the Surrogate’s Court to act, the executor or administrator of the estate must gather the assets, pay the bills, and distribute the assets as the will or as the statutes require. Taxes must be filed for the individual and may have to be filed for the estate on both the estate and federal levels. Gregg H. Redmond has the experience to guide you through each and every step of this process.</p>

Estate Administration & Probate

When selling your home, we will prepare the deed and other necessary forms to record the transaction; have your abstract of title to the property updated, order an updated property survey, collect mortgage payoff information, and resolve any title objections that may arise. We will also provide the experienced guidance necessary to coordinate your sale with your purchase of a new home. If you are buying or selling your home or property, contact Gregg H.

There are many facets to a DWI charges. On the criminal side, you may face penalties of loss of your driving privileges, fines, and possibly jail time. On the civil side, the Department of Motor Vehicles may impose civil penalties and conduct hearings to revoke your licence. If you take the Breathalyzer or submit to a blood test, you will be charged with two separate counts of DWI. The first charge would be “common law DWI” or the inability to operate a motor vehicle as a reasonable and prudent driver. The second charge is “DWI per se” or having a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher. Aggravated DWI is a charge of having blood alcohol concentration of .18% or higher. DWAI can be charged when you have a .07% blood alcohol concentration or other evidence of impairment. If you are found guilty in criminal court of refusing to take the Breathalyzer or a blood test, your licence will be revoked for at least one year and you will be fined. The DMV will also impose a driver responsibility assessment for a DWI conviction or a refusal in the amount of $750 or $250 a year for three years. If you are convicted of a second DWI within ten years of your first violation, there are increased penalties in terms of fines and jail time. If you have been charged with a crime or have been issued tickets for DWI, you need the experienced guidance that Gregg H. Redmond can provide.</p>

<p class="font_8" style="text-align: center"><strong>Criminal Law</strong></p>
<p class="font_8">When a person is arrested, they are thrown into a complicated system of which they have a limited knowledge and experience. Gregg H. Redmond has the experience to guide you through this area of law. Gregg has tried cases in criminal matters in town courts, city courts and Traffic Violations Bureau. Whether this is your first arrest or not, you will need the experienced guidance of an attorney who will fight for you. Criminal cases are rarely resolved with one court appearance, although preparation before the first appearance is necessary. The first appearance is called arraignment, where the judge will read the charges against the defendant and a not guilty plea is entered. Most courts require a defendant charged with a misdemeanor obtain legal counsel before proceeding. The defense lawyer will demand the arrest papers from the People, conduct an investigation and develop a defense strategy. The following court appearances may involve filing motions, conducting hearings and pre-trial conferences. If a resolution may be arranged before trial, it may be in your best interest to accept that offer. By preparing for trial from the start, you understand the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you.&nbsp;</p>
