Gregory Salnick was practically raised in the courtrooms of South Florida. When Greg was a child, his father would bring him to DUI manslaughter and first degree murder trials, giving him an early lesson that a moments action could have a lifetime of consequences. The experience of growing up around criminal defense provided Gregory with the insight to understand the contrary meaning of that life lesson, a person’s character and life should not be defined by a moments action.
Greg earned his vast knowledge of criminal law through the mentorship of his father, Michael Salnick. With the guidance and support of his father upon graduating from Wellington High School, Greg received his undergraduate degree in Communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder and his Juris Doctor from Florida State University College of Law in May 2010.
During his last semester of law school, Gregory worked in his hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida where he was a certified legal intern at the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office. In August of 2010, Greg began his legal career at the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office where he prosecuted over 90 jury trials, ranging from DUI to murder, armed robbery and drug trafficking. Greg quickly gained a reputation as a tenacious and ethical attorney at law. In December of 2013, Greg was named Felony Prosecutor of the year, an award voted by his peers for his hard work, teamwork, and dedication to the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office.
After establishing his own legal career path, Gregory joined the Law Offices of Salnick & Fuchs, P.A. as a state and federal criminal defense attorney.
Greg keeps active in bar activities and currently serves as a board member of the Young Lawyers section of the Palm Beach County Bar Association. He was an active member of the Inns of Court for two years. He is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, as well as the Criminal Law section of the Florida Bar. Greg is also a member of the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
