Gregory M. Garvin
Gregory Michael Garvin was born and raised in Ohio. During high school, his family fled the north after two extremely bad winters and settled in Houston, Texas. While in high school Greg was actively involved in many different activities including band, choir, track team, orchestra, and
drama. He graduated from Northbrook High School with honors and attended Texas A&M.
At Texas A&M University, Greg was a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets and served as Executive Officer of Company Trident P-2. He was a member of the Singing Cadets, and the Ormond R. Simpson Corps Honor Society. He excelled in a pre-medicine curriculum, and after graduating with honors, attended University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio for medical school. During medical school he joined the Marine Corps Reserve after his first year, attending boot camp over his summer vacation. This was in line with Greg’s drive to achieve his life goals, even if it was inconvenient!
Following medical school, Greg’s career included emergency medicine, urgent care, family practice, and ultimately, a board certification in occupational medicine. In pursuit of advancing his medical career, in 2005 he earned a Master’s in Public Health from the Medical College of
Wisconsin. He completed his residency at University of Pennsylvania. In 2014, he decided to finally pursue his ambition to become a lawyer. Leaving behind his medical practice, he applied to law school and in 2017 graduated from University of Houston with both a J.D. and an LL.M.
degree in Intellectual Property. Greg was one of only 3 students to achieve this distinction the first year University of Houston offered the joint degree plan.
During his time in law school, Greg was a member of the Moot Court team, participating in the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition, and was a finalist in the Blakely-Butler Moot Court Competition. He also won the Tom Newhouse Mediation Tournament. He was also a finalist in the Lorance-Thomas Negotiation and Contract Drafting Tournament.
Greg was active in the Federalist Society attending numerous meetings, events and served as Vice- President of the organization. He actively participated in both a Veteran’s Clinic and the Consumer Law Clinic, working to help people to resolve their issues with businesses and landlords.
During law school, Greg made the Dean’s List 3 times, and successfully completed over 20 hours his last semester to earn his Master of Laws degree simultaneously with his Juris Doctorate.
Soon after becoming an attorney, Greg opened his own practice, Garvin Law PLLC, which handled non-personal injury cases, but he is now focused on personal injury.
Prior to joining John K. Zaid & Associates, Greg worked for Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz, & Stogner on personal injury cases, and was consulted frequently on medical malpractice cases. He gained valuable legal experience and necessary skills while working on automobile
collisions, commercial collisions, premises liability and workplace injuries and explosions. He successfully settled numerous cases, represented his clients in court and brought justice to those who had been wronged. Greg is now focused on zealously representing clients to bring them the
justice they deserve for the injuries they have suffered.
Greg enjoys spending time with friends, keeping up with his family, traveling and reading science fiction.
