Biography

Greg Porter was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He graduated from Bishop Fenwick High School in Middletown and then successfully completed Ohio's Firefighter Training Program. Afterwards, he found a call to serve his country and joined the United States Marine Corps Reserves. Fresh out of basic and combat training, Greg began his studies at the University of Cincinnati. In his second year of college, his studies were put on hold when he was called to serve a tour of duty in Iraq. Upon returning from active duty, he finished his Bachelor's degree. He then obtained his Juris Doctor from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio and was admitted to the practice of law in the State of Ohio. Greg also was admitted to practice in the U.S. Federal Court, Southern District of Ohio.

Greg joined Rodríguez & Associates as an attorney in 2012 and became a named partner of Rodríguez & Porter in 2015. Greg focuses his practice exclusively on civil cases, including Domestic Relations and Juvenile Court cases such as Domestic Violence Protection Orders, Civil Stalking Protection Orders, Custody, Visitation, Abuse, Child Support, Special Immigrant Juvenile Relief Status, (SIJS) Dissolution and Divorce. He also focuses on civil litigation, where his clients range from small businesses, he defends against lawsuits, to subcontractors, with construction issues.

Greg has also represented numerous clients in front of local and state administrative agencies, including the Ohio State Board of Education and the Ohio Department of Liquor Control. He has succeeded for his clients in several civil lawsuits through a legal mechanism known as Summary Judgment, saving his clients thousands of dollars by prevailing long before trial expenses are incurred.

Outside of court, Greg spends time with his wife, their three boys and their pack of four dogs. Over the years, Greg has coached many baseball and basketball teams in Fairfield; and is his sons' #1 fan at all their many sporting events.

Legal Answers
9 Questions Answered
Q. If a property has been under contract for over two months can another party make an offer on the same property
A: Anyone can always make an offer, and the seller could even accept their offer while yours is pending. However, if all the conditions of the contract have been fulfilled, or in a house/condo sale, are in the process of being fulfilled, then the seller would likely be liable to you for money damages if he sold it to someone else. Some courts may, if they find the contract valid and that the seller breached it, enforce the contract and force the seller to sell it to you - this remedy is much rarer though.
Q. Im a convicted felon from 2000, since then I havent been in any trouble, is there a way i can get it of my record
A: Yes. Ohio has a very broad expungement statute. Depending upon the dates you finished your sentence and the degree of crime it is, you may be eligible to have the crime expunged.
Q. A tow truck company came in towed my truck from my driveway without my permission
A: It was probably repossessed then. Call the tow truck company and find out why they towed it. If you owed money to someone for the truck, and you fell behind on payments, then they have the right to come and take the truck back. If you are current on all your payments, then find an attorney because either the tow truck company or the lien holder is liable for certain torts, i.e., conversion, wrongful repossession, etc.
