Gary R. Gremminger

Before embarking on his legal career, Mr. Gremminger practiced as an engineer which allowed him to develop a unique skill-set with experiences working in an ammunition manufacturing research facility, coal mines and at a power plant. He also prepared design drawings and technical specifications for HVAC and pipeline distribution systems.

Since joining GGM more than 30 years ago, Gary has demonstrated superior ability in effectively representing corporations, insurance companies and individuals in lawsuits arising from alleged failure to maintain premises and motor vehicle/trucking accidents as well as design/construction related claims. His technical background and engineering experience has also assisted in the representation of manufacturers and distributors in cases involving alleged product defects. Gary has successfully handled many catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims.

Mr. Gremminger's practice has evolved to include providing services as a Mediator and Arbitrator.  Gary's experience in litigating and resolving disputes and his relationships with counsel on both sides enable him to bring matters to a conclusion by compromise or decision through non-binding mediation or binding arbitration.
