very helpful
Mr. Grimes responded quickly to my issue with an email. He answered my questions. He does not practice near me but he got me a referral. I thought that was very nice, as other attorneys merely responded with "just hire an atttorney".

The Best Representation Imaginable
Raymond Grimes is an exceptionally skilled professional. I've know Ray for over 35 years as we went to school together. I have called on his services numerous times always resulting in a more than favorable outcome. What differentiates Ray from other professionals in his field is quite simply that he cares. No matter what he takes on, he takes the time to become intimate with the situation providing for a solid foundation for him to strategize from. He then digests things in his complex mind deriving strategies not common to others. He is an outstanding person, father & confidant who I am proud to be associated with.
