I honestly have never written a review for anything, but I feel compelled to write one for Ross. I had heard about Ross from a friend who was very satisfied. He explained everything so well, and he was very knowledgeable about the process and HONEST. I felt very confident through the whole process that he was on top of my case, and the end result proved that he was. His staff was very very organized, and I felt they kept me informed for the most part. Overall I was very very very pleased with my choice, and I am writing this because I know how important it is to pick the right attorney and if this review can help someone else who is in my situation that is all I am looking for.

The decision to hire the Grisham law firm became an easy one after I began my research.
First off, there was the extensive experience for such a young lawyer. I have been burned in the past by hiring an experienced lawyer who was clearly past his prime and showed little initiative once hired. Mr Grisham was the opposite of that, demonstrating amazing drive and "fire in the belly".
Finally, it was his understanding of the situation and the law and how it applies that moved the needle sharply in our favor.
I cannot overstate my strong endorsement of the Grisham Law firm.

Ross Grisham is a credit to his profession.
He is honest and without pretense. I found him to be courteous and professional.
I first met Ross immediately following a traumatic and legally challenging incident.
I interviewed several possible attorneys and there were three things that immediately set him apart from his competition.
1) Although he assured me he would do everything he could to help me, he never promised the impossible. In fact he made it very clear that I had an uphill battle. I did not want someone to mislead me by telling me that finding justice would be a cakewalk.
2) He personally discussed my case with me over the phone as soon as he could and explained the possibilities of how to handle it.
3) Whenever I needed to reach him or other staff members of his firm, there was always someone that I could reach. I never felt hung out or neglected. (This I noticed right away but it was something that I appreciated throughout the process.)
With Ross’ leadership, we initially tried to appeal to the common sense and decency of the Prosecution.
When this was ignored Ross considered our options and was able to bring the case before a different audience. Sadly, it seems that the attorneys representing “The People” may be more concerned with convictions than justice.
When this second audience refused to make accommodations for an unjust situation, Ross talked candidly with me about my options. He let me know that I was in a situation where I needed to choose between making a plea and taking the going punishment (for a crime that involved incredibly extenuating circumstances), or requesting my right to a jury trial. He assured me that he was on my side regardless of the choice I made, but that the chances of winning this jury trial may be slim. By now, I wanted to ask a jury of my peers what they thought because I felt railroaded by the Prosecution.
Ross was diligent in his preparation of our case. He spent many evenings on it. But he was careful never to “train” or “coach” me about what to say. He knew that my honest answers in my own words would be the best thing for me to use.
He arranged for the right expert witness to be at court for the jury trial.
He was outstanding during jury selection and his opening statements were interesting and on target.
During the examination and cross-examination of witnesses he knew exactly which points were important to bring out before the jury in order that they could come to a just verdict. He also knew when to object to the Prosecution’s actions to prevent them from misleading the jury.
Then finally he made a very impassioned plea for justice on my behalf before the jury in his closing statements.
On that day, thanks to Ross Grisham, truth and justice prevailed against the odds.
Sometimes in certain circumstances, you need more than just to be right to get justice.
Thanks Ross Grisham!
