"I endorse Grady F. Tollison, Jr., with out any reservation or qualification. i have known Grady for many years, professionally and personally. First, he is a good and courageous man. i know that because i worked for him previously and have worked on cases with him after that time and we have also been on opposite sides. Those experiences inform my recommendation: He is truly a lawyer's lawyer. He has and exemplifies the intellect, knowledge, and legal skills that far exceed the minimums of the profession. He is at the top and zealously represents his clients within the bounds of the highest ethical standards and demonstrates genuine compassion for his fellow human beings.
