Recommended by a friend and glad he did
Grant did an excellent job for me in a very difficult situation. His experience showed throughout the process and despite my own mistakes and misguided attempts to steer… He kept the course and got me through a very difficult time. I would recommend Grant!

Great support
Grant has been my attorney for several years, representing me in various parenting plan revisions, and has always been very knowledgeable in this area. He provides a calm, secure and insightful perspective. Grant asked excellent questions during our deposition and helped me to receive a settlement I was happy with. Grant is very personable and kind!

Amazing Attorney and Mediator
Grant Glassford represented me in a complex and emotional case regarding custody and the safety of a minor child. We worked together for almost 2 years. Mr. Glassford is smart, creative, knowledgeable in the law, very supportive, and highly ethical. He meticulously plans but also adeptly pivots on the fly when needed, and has an excellent memory for past conversations, legal arguments and exhibits. Communications are efficient, directed and focused on the crucial facts, but he deftly balances that with empathy, compassion and sage advice. Frankly, he’s an amazing attorney. I give him my absolute highest recommendation.

A Great Ally
Grant took the time to explain all aspects of the divorce process before I had decided to take that route. Even at times when I lost faith in everything Grant would call and reassure me that it would be ok and he was on my side. He is a great man and an amazing attorney. Thanks Grant

Great attorney for collaborative divorce
Grant represented me in a collaborative divorce process. He provided me with solid understanding in a world I knew almost nothing about before getting started. He was thorough in his preparation, respectful in all communications with me and with the other professionals involved. He was understanding of my specific situation, and he made himself available to fit my already full schedule. He gave me great advice from start to finish. I would recommend Grant without reservation, and I am completely satisfied with his representation.

Amazing Attorney
Grant Is an amazing attorney. He knows the law well. He has been a God-send to me and my family. He took on my case in the middle of litigation due to a conflict of interest from my previous counsel. He was with me fighting through a 5 day trial and onto the court of appeals. He fought for me as if I was family. At trial, he worked hard to bring out the truth. He truly wants what is best for you and your children. You can trust him and his approach. He is experienced and works diligently and is patient and professional in his work. He has a calm, patient, and professional presence whether you meet with him in his office, on the phone, or as he represents you in court. You will not go wrong with Grant. He is an incredible, intelligent, diligent, dependable and trustworthy attorney.

If You're Looking To Make Divorce As Sane As Possible
Grant Glassford patiently and expertly guided me through a very painful and complicated divorce that involved both property and children. It was a difficult time and Grant's approach to family law is to calmly work with the other side to reach an agreement that does the least amount of damage possible. He's a seasoned veteran in the legal domestic arena and takes the long view in these situations. If you're looking for a junkyard dog who's going to try and destroy the other side, rack up the biggest bill possible, and drag it out for years, Grant may not be your guy. But if you're trying to reach the fairest and sanest possible resolution to one of life's most difficult situations, then go talk to Grant. You won't be sorry.

Valuable advocate and excellent attorney
I have worked with Grant since my move to Nashville 15 years ago, for post-divorce proceedings, including child support, changing custody and parenting plans, and securing judgments for outstanding child support. He is a strategic lawyer who is practical and thoughtful, and provides realistic feedback of legal situations and strategies. He has been extremely available and responsive through the past 15 years, including some very contentious and challenging situations with my ex-husband. I highly recommend him.

Grant Glassford - Great Attorney
I hired Grant to handle my divorce case. He provided excellent legal and practical advice that in regards to my rights as a parent and division of the assets. He handled all of my concerns and was very prompt if I had an issue calling me after hours and on the weekends. I have recommended Grant to all my friends for their law needs.

Excellent advocate
Grant is a steady presence in an inherently unstable practice area. He provided practical, first-rate counsel based on extensive experience with judges, lawyers, and other professionals in Nashville.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
I hired Grant Glassford upon the recommendation of a co-worker who used him for her divorce proceedings 2 years ago. I highly value the opinion of this co-worker and did not hesitate to contact Mr. Glassford. I called his office after an extremely stressful confrontation with my spouse, and Mr. Glassford immediately returned my call and lowered my stress level. Throughout the divorce proceedings, he and his office were very courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. My calls and emails were always returned promptly, and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case.

Better off with a prepaid legal service than Grant Glassford
It has been several years since my divorce was final. I thought long and hard about writing MY review of my experience with Mr. Glassford. I still today (2018) have such a bad taste in my mouth from my experience. It had to be the worst representation I have had with an ill prepared Attorney. He seemed to only work on my file when I called or when I met with him in person. Like other reviews in the past, he seemed to have personal issues that diverted his attention on his clients. He was pushing for a quick settlement with the case and couldn't give me a straight answer on expected settlement options - Other than "your wife hired Rose Palermo" and I can't help that? What does that mean?? This is his field! I couldn't even get a ball park on how much alimony I would have to pay...........Yet, after ending my relationship with Grant and changing attorney's, the new attorney pulled supreme court ruling cases of the past to answer ALL of my questions within 5 mins of our 1st meeting. And the outcome came within alignment. The thing that bothered me the most was the wife's responses to our interrogatories was so vague that it answered nothing. And, Grant didn't question or even go back for more discovery. Yet, it took me 3 months to answer the same 66 page questionnaire through Grant's help (in person of course) which appears to be too much time and information provided to the opposing defense. When hiring an attorney, one would hope that you would be able to answer questionnaires the same way Rose Palermo responded for my ex wife's interrogatories. One sentence or two word replies - It took three days crafting answers with Grant almost like a thesis for grad school- If you need someone to process legal filings and settle the case at all costs to you, then he is the attorney for you. Otherwise, save your money and hire a $50 prepaid service and achieve the same end results and expectations. Based on my experience, I would not recommend Grant Glassford.

Disaster!
Mr. Glassford took my case and then proceeded to charge me for each of his multiple delays in court (which were his idea). Struggled with simple filings, and seemed extremely slow to respond with answers to my questions. Seemed unprepared when we finally made it to court. Ended up costing me a lot of money that was not necessary. Would not recommend!!
