Greg Eiesland is a partner in the Johnson Eiesland Law Offices in Rapid City, South Dakota. Over the years Greg Eiesland has been involved in many of the most important and cutting edge cases in the State of South Dakota. His case of National Bank of South Dakota v. Lier, et al, struck down sovereign immunity for the State of South Dakota. After that decision, the State could no longer harm people without being accountable for the damage it caused. His case of Flockhart v. Wyant established the law in South Dakota that an injured party could go after a drunk driver for punitive damages. His case of Small v. KcKennan Hospital established the right of compensation for the family of a woman killed by criminal activity on business premises.

Years ago he had the first seven figure personal injury verdict in South Dakota. Greg has been instrumental in nursing home reform in the state. He continues to be an advocate for people injured in this state. His recent verdicts and settlements for nursing home residents who are victims of neglect and abuse have garnered attention both state wide and nationally. Greg is passionate about representing his clients against wrongdoers.

On behalf of his clients, Greg has successfully taken on the US Government, Indian Health Service, State of South Dakota, Department of Transportation, Toyota,  Caterpillar, Beverly Nursing Homes, Golden Living Nursing Homes, Walmart, K- mart, Twin Labs, Starcraft and countless other negligent companies , government entities, and individuals.
