Outstanding criminal defense trial lawyer
Grant is a tireless advocate for justice and an eloquent criminal defense attorney during a jury trial that resulted in not guilty verdicts on all charges.  A false verbal accusation started this lengthy criminal proceeding, which was complicated by COVID's impact on the courts.  Grant’s support staff Samantha and co-attorney Dara were also superb in the work they did in this case. Grant also did a great job coordinating all the family and friends who came and showed their support during trial.  We thank God and have the utmost respect for the stellar work Grant and his team did in this case.

The Erie area’s Go-To lawyer for sure!
Attorney Travis represented me years ago in a serious car accident. He did a great job. Recently I made a bad decision to drink and drive and was arrested for DUI. I truly regret the incident and will not let it happen again. But, I had to fight the case or lose my job. I hired Attorney Travis. He literally got the entire case against me thrown out. He is a miracle worker!

The Top Lawyer in Erie!
Attorney Travis represented me in two life altering cases. One was a workers' compensation case and the other was a career ending motor-vehicle crash that was part of the work comp case. He obtained a multi-million dollar win for me in theses cases. Attorney Travis literally saved my future from ruin. I am indebted to him. I referred my son to him after he was in a serious accident and again, Attorney Travis won a huge settlement for her. And Attorney Travis represented my son in a DUI case, keeping him out of jail in a case we all thought our son would be going to prison. Our family is so happy we have Attorney Travis in our corner!

Very Happy to Give Five Star Review!
As a parent of a Millcreek Township high school student, I found myself in need of a criminal defense lawyer for my son. Attorney Travis came very highly recommended - and for good reason! Attorney Travis negotiated my son’s case so that all charges were eventually withdrawn. We were relieved and thrilled with the great work Attorney Travis did on our son’s behalf!
