Happy Veterans Day from Michael Sullivan & Associates

Veterans Day is a special day to remember the courage and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform. Michael Sullivan & Associates is especially proud of our employees, such as Employment Attorney Greg Wilbur, who have served our nation with honor.

Prior to attending law school, Greg served in the Marine Corps as a commissioned officer from 2006 to 2010. Highlights of his service included working as an embedded combat advisor to the Iraqi Police in Anbar Province, commanding dozens of convoys throughout that country, and developing a comprehensive training plan to prepare his unit for its eventual deployment to Afghanistan. For his service, Greg was twice awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and was promoted to Captain in the reserves after leaving active duty.

Greg credits his service with helping him keep a cool head when unexpected difficulties arise in litigation. "Just like in the service, you need to have a detailed plan in litigation, but you also need to pivot quickly when circumstances change. My belief is that there’s no tension between those two ideas, and that detailed planning—and really the process more than the plan itself—facilitates rapid analysis and decisive action as the situation develops. That attitude served me well in the Marines and has continued to throughout my practice."

Happy Veterans Day from Michael Sullivan & Associates. Your service to our country is an inspiration to us all. Thank you!

Gregory B. Wilbur
