Excellent Advice
I was seeking his counsel on a Lemon Law matter. Instead of string me along drain me of possibly thousands in legals fees and a lengthy trial, he suggested another yet very effective alternative! His honesty and sincerity is greatly appreciated! I will refer to anyone I know in need of his services!

Great advice.
You seem to me from what I have read actually care about my situation. Some of it I already knew and some of it I didn't. Either way i wish there were more people out there in the world.

I am a happy client!
I consulted with several attorney's in the NY area and thankfully found & retained Mr. Grant. Mr Grant is not only well-versed in many aspects of law; but he is also compassionate and aggressive. He represented my best interests, respected my opinion & settled above my expectations during an emotionally charged & often arduous environment fueled by distribution of assets which Mr Grant negotiated allowing me to continue to live the lifestyle I did during my marriage. I had the opportunity to hire anyone; I hired Phillip Grant. I am a happy client!!

The brightest of the bunch
My partner and I consulted several years ago with Mr. Grant on an infringement of intellectual property of photos. The photos were stolen from one national magazine that had paid for usage and used within another national periodical on line that had not paid for usage. Mr. Grant was professional in manner and quickly settled our dispute within a matter of weeks. We received a substantial financial award and an apology from the magazine that stole our property. We were very satisfied with his services and highly recommend him.

Superb and Excellent Legal Services
I worked with Mr. Grant on real estate matters, and he by far consistently provided excellent advice. Mr. Grant's extraordinary depth of application of legal principles and selection of legal strategy, specifically tailored to address a pressing legal concern is like no other I ever seen. A great writer and advocate with superior knowledge of the Courts system and transactional matters-comes highly recommended.

Fair and honest barrister
As a film director and producer, I've worked with Mr. Grant on several* complex film and real estate deals. His work ethic is wholly professional and the benefits I received are wholly attributable to Mr. Grant's legal skills. Plus, thanks to his extremely fair billing rates, I was left with a few bucks in my pocket.
