Law Office of Theopalis K. Gregory, Sr., Esq.  - Committed to Excellence!
About Us

                Theopalis K. Gregory, Sr. is a Wilmington resident.  He graduated from De La Warr High School, University of Delaware, and University of Florida, School of Law.
                While at the University of Delaware he played football, running at fullback.  The University enjoyed two small college national championships in 1971 and 1972.  He’s a member of the school’s 1,200 yard club.  Theo was inducted into the Delaware Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame in 2001.
                He has enjoyed a broad career.  Commencing with what was to become a life-long career of public services, he was a Reginald Heber Smith Fellow practicing poverty law at our local Community Legal Aide Society from 1977-1979.  From there he received an appointment by President Jimmy Carter as an Assistant United States Attorney,  District of Delaware from 1979 – 1984, where he was assigned to prosecute cases on behalf of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).  He was the first Black to hold this position.  He received a recognition certificate for his DEA prosecution of the Pagan Motorcycle Club for trafficking in methamphetamine.  The hallmark of this federal career was the ATF prosecution of the Ku Klux Klan for firearms violations.
                Next, he entered private practice in 1984, where he remained until 1994, before assuming an assignment as an Assistant Public Defender, primarily representing juveniles in Family Court.  During this ten (10) years in private practice span he handled personal injury, criminal defense, probate and real estate matters.   He now returns to private practice, where he again has chosen to locate in the heart of the community, and where he is visible and accessible.
                For twenty-four years Theo served as a member of the Wilmington City Council, from 1984-2008, having been elected six times.  He passed legislation in varied areas of city government and served in numerous leadership positions.  He proudly notes that he’s a principal founder of the Police Athletic League Youth Activities Center on N. Market Street; Maurice J. Moyer Academy; and provided leadership in renovation of Eden Park Athletic Field and P.S. DuPont Athletic Fields.  Finally, he is a principal founder of the City’s youth tackle football program, and played a leading role in reviving the Baynard Stadium Wednesday Night Youth Track and Field Program. 
                From 2006-2010 Theo served as the Director of the Maurice J. Moyer Academy.  He was the principal founder of this urban charter school for grades 6-12.  This novel grade configuration provides continuity for six years, and the City’s only traditional public high school.
