About me

Attorney Grant is a member of  the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons  and Grant, L.L.C., a firm well recognized for  its success. Achievements have included seven figure settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of our clients — people who faced serious personal injury or other legal concerns. At Piazza, Simmons & Grant, LLC our emphasis is always on helping clients achieve the best possible results in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and family law. We tailor our approach to meet our clients' needs. When litigation is necessary, we pursue it tenaciously.


 


Attorney Grant represents clients seriously injured as a result of accidents or medical malpractice.  After working for  eight years in the insurance defense industry, where he had a winning record as a trial attorney and successfully defended auto accident and medical malpractice claims, he began representing injured persons in 2004.  Since that time he has developed a winning record as a plaintiff's trial attorney, and has used his background, familiarity and knowledge of the insurance industry to consistently obtain higher settlements for his clients.


 


Attorney Grant is committed to obtaining maximum value for his clients by going the extra mile.  This means he will not recommend settling your case until he believes you are getting what your case is truly worth, and he will work hard to do the groundwork necessary to get it.
