Brooks Grainger Review
Brooks assisted me with Divorce proceedings. He made me aware of my rights and responsibilities and helped conduct what was a fair and amicable process. I believe that his expertise and experience at the practice of Divorce law allowed me to arrive at a settlement that was fair and equitable for both parties.

Reputable Counselor
A friend referred me because Mr. Grainger used an extreme amount of discretion regarding her privacy. I was impressed how true the statement is. He is professional and intelligent, never losing focus of my personal needs to provide for my children. I would recommend him to anyone and have already twice.

Very Professional
While my husband found the cheapest, sleaziest attorney in town I went to Mr. Grainger as a referral from a co-worker. He was very professional and helped me determine what was worth the time and money to persue and what things were not worth fighting over. He heped me to see things the way a judge would and always told me he would help me to fight for whatever I wanted, give his best professional guidance, and do his best to get a fair settlement without a long legal battle because that was my goal, to make it a quick easy process and he did just that. I appreciated his help, respect, and patience. He was always kind and courteous even when I lost my patience and he helped me get the solution I wanted quickly, efficiently, and affordably! This was my first and hopefully last experience with an attorney but if I ever need one again I would definitely call Mr. Grainger.

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Feb 13
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Brooks occasionally has been across the table from me representing creditors when I represent debtors. However, he does understand the situation from a debtor's point of view because he represents them too. That perspective helps when we are both trying to represent our clients to the fullest. At the end of the day, it isn't about how much you get, it's about reaching an agreement that is mutually beneficial to both sides. Brooks really does care about this clients and is a pleasure to work with. He has a passion for the law and is quite the expert on Indiana law in the areas that he practices. I know that if I have a question, I can turn to him for a good answer. I strongly recommend Brooks to anyone seeking the services of a good attorney."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known and worked closely with Brooks since his entry into the private practice. I attended law school with Brooks and found him to have an unique ability to determine the core heart of an issue and to truly understand the law, something few people can do. Since entering private practice, I have had countless occasions to call on him for advice on areas of creditor's rights, or simply as a sanity check for a particularly complicated legal issue. His skills are truly outstanding. However, his commitment to honor and ethics that set him apart."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 28

Brooks has also taught continuing educational seminars for fellow attorneys, so he is always keeping up with current legal developments in his practice areas. If you have a legal issue in South Bend, one cannot go wrong seeking representation from Brooks Grainger."
