About me

Raymond graduated from The George Washington University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and received his law degree from Rutgers University Law School. Raymond has had substantial experience in both the public and private sectors.

He began with an International Law firm in Washington D.C. and continued with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Philadelphia. He was also fortunate to have worked for the Honorable Edward W. Beglin, Jr., the Assignment Judge for Union County. After his clerkship, he was employed by a large N.J. law firm for several years before starting his own law firm in 1996. The firm has offices located in New Jersey, New York City, and Pennsylvania.

Raymond has a wealth of experience in many fields of law. He specializes in Securities Litigation, Construction Litigation, Personal Injury and Workmen’s Compensation, Criminal Defense and Municipal Court matters, and Business Litigation. In his general business practice he represents a number of corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and sole proprietorships.

Raymond has had great success in complex litigation matters against some of the largest firms in the country and has obtained very favorable awards for his clients. In addition to the many settlements he has received for his clients, Raymond does not hesitate to take his cases to trial to maximize his clients’ recovery. For example, he was awarded a $1.4 million verdict in a Securities Litigation matter which he tried for five weeks, against five different law firms, before the National Association of Securities Dealers in New York City. He has also been awarded numerous personal injury jury verdicts and settlements totaling well in excess of $10 million.

As a result of the reputation the Grimes firm has earned, it receives many referrals from clients, fellow attorneys, and other law firms. Whatever your legal needs are, the Grimes firm is confident that it will able to discuss your individual needs, analyze your legal situation, provide you with your legal options, and pursue your case in a most diligent and professional manner.
