Review Walter Grantham

About Me

As a trial lawyer my job is not to present a client's side of the story, but to convince the jury what actually happened.  I cringe when I hear the phrase "There's two sides to the story" 


My client's have either been hurt or arrested, it's my job to help prove that they were in the right, and that is fact, not fiction.
