Paralegal Services by Michelle Gredinberg


"Life as a practicing lawyer would be immeasurably easier if someone like Michelle came
standard with every law degree.  That would be impractical, unfortunately, as there is no one
quite like Michelle.  No one, that is, with her first rate organizational skills, keen analytic insight,
and unremitting dedication to the quality of her work.  In fact, as the director of an organization
that assigns cases, I have had many attorneys refuse to accept a case until they’ve first assured Michelle is available to provide paralegal support.  All maintain she is incomparable in every degree and in all facets of case load management.  Best of all, in my view, her rates are reasonable and she is unfailingly courteous and friendly at all times.  I strongly recommend
against taking on any case of any complexity without ensuring Michelle is available to do what
she does so well on your behalf. "

James Gleason, Santa Clara County Independent Defense Counsel Office (IDO) Director, San Jose, CA

"I work on complex civil and complex criminal cases in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle Gredinberg on multiple times organizing and assisting my material for me.  I have used her services both outside the courtroom in terms of organization and preparation and inside the courtroom for trial support.  She is simply the best litigation paralegal I have worked with in my career.  It is as simple as that.  She masters the subject matter, recognizes the issues, and prepares the material in a manner that is easily accessible and intelligently organized. "

Charles J. Smith, Redwood City, CA


 "I have worked with Michelle Gredinberg for 15 years and I admire and respect her professionalism, work ethic and stellar organizational skills. She is intelligent, efficient and as a bonus--she has a wonderful personality. Most recently, she organized and created a Casemap file for a triple capital homicide case I was working on. The case had at least ten thousand (10,000) pages of documents and she prepared a fantastic Casemap file for the enitre case. She has never failed to meet a deadline or failed to complete a job. She is completely reliable and trustworthy." 

Wendy Kim, Attorney at Law, San Jose, CA

"I could not imagine using anyone other than Michelle Gredinberg to handle my complex cases. Currently she is
managing a capital criminal case for me, with over 8000 pages of police reports, forensic documentation, video
and audio taped interviews, medical records, crime scene evidence, and a huge array of other legal work product.

There are 7 co-counsel on this case as well, each with their own view of the materials. She is prompt, efficient,
and wondrously competent in grasping the substance of the case while dealing with the heavy volume and
multiple attorneys. I always feel she is taking special care of my case discovery, due to her professionalism

organized manner. This helps us process the job more efficiently, reducing the time required to complete it, and

"It has been a distinct privilege to know and work with Michelle Gredinberg since 1994. Michelle not only possesses all the talents of an exceptional paralegal (tremendous work ethic, superior organizational skills, tech saavy, professionalism of the highest degree, ability to work under stress and deadlines plus a pleasing personality) but also, Michelle thinks like a criminal defense attorney. That's huge! ...this attribute is an incredible benefit for the attorney and, more importantly, for our clients. 

 Michelle Gredinberg is a lawyer's dream come true. I wish she could be cloned."

 Jeane DeKelver, Attorney at Law, San Jose, California


"I am a certified specialist in criminal law with 40 years of experience.  Because my home office is in Monterey County, I have had only few opportunities to work with Michelle in Santa Clara County.  But it took only one experience to know that Michelle is unsurpassed in her organizational skills, insight, and willingness to work hard.  The first case where I was fortunate enough to have access to Michelle’s services was a special circumstances murder case in San Jose in the years 2002 through 2003.  The case file consisted of more than two thousand pages by the time we got to trial.  Witnesses numbered nearly a hundred, spread all over California and several other states.  The trial lasted more than three weeks, and Michelle was in court with me every day, PLUS she managed all the subpoenas and orders to produce (several witnesses were in prisons or jails); and she tracked our witnesses and helped the investigator get even the reluctant ones to court when we needed them.  In her spare time, she prepared all the courtroom displays.  In more recent cases Michelle has assisted me with the same poise and effectiveness.  I learned that she dedicates herself to the case whether it is big or small. I highly recommend Michelle especially for the complex cases, but also the more routine ones.  In a phrase, “you can depend on her.”"

Thomas S. Worthington, Worthington  Law  Centre, Salinas/Morgan Hill, CA


 Michelle Gredinberg is a champ.  Frankly, her intelligence, dedication, and “ready to work” attitude are the exact ingredients needed for what she does, and she does bring order to chaos, handle the gazillion things a lawyer doesn’t have time for but that also desperately need doing, listen, show up on time, with what’s needed.  All of that and a great human, to boot.  My only selfish regret is that I don’t have her full time.  Thanks Michelle!
