About Carol

Learn Carol’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Family
    We have many pleased family law clients. See client comment sampler at As a Certified Financial Planner, I have special financial expertise relating to dissolutions.

  2. Estate planning
    Unlike many estate attorneys I have a substantial litigation background

  3. Criminal defense
    From 1976-1984 I did criminal and appellate work exclusively at Meshbesher, Singer and Spence. We successfully represented the police officers in the Scott County cases in 1984-1986

  4. Appeals
    I did all the appeals at Meshbesher, Singer and Spence from 1976-1984 and won some high publicity cases including the Piper Kidnapping appeal.

I am at the peak of my experience at this time, having passed the Bar in 1976.  Client satisfaction is very high as illustrated in my website.  I am a Certified Financial Planner, which is a unique qualification for an attorney, requiring approximately 2 years of study and 2 days of testing with a pass rate less than 55% in the year I became a CFP.

My strengths include detail orientation and persistence in obtaining a result. I am quick and communicative. I feel that sometimes I wear the other side down through persistence, among other things.

"Industry recognition" on AVVO may be kind of low because I don't want to take the time to solicit recommendations from other attorneys.  A quick free consult, by calling, should be enough to create confidence in my ability to pursue a successful outcome for you.

Going up against CPs ! Mrs Grant is a super star lawyer to say the least. She was ready and willing to defeat Hennepin county CP
Excellent lawyer! Mrs. Grant knows her stuff. She took on Hennepin county CPs for us on bogus charges. She never missed a beat, she pointed out each and every lie they told under testimony . Don't be fooled by her sweet beauty, she is a beast in the court :-)!

Carol has a way of dismissing the petty things and getting right to the heart of the issue. She's excellent at finding the truth and getting the Judge to see the truth also. I only wish I had found her sooner as it would have saved me much distress and money. I recommend her to anyone faced with an ex that is dishonest.
