Standing for Tenure and Academic Rights
I came to Lee Grossman because of a dispute over my Tenure status at Dickinson State University. I had accepted a lesser paid fully online teaching contract, but conditions were not met whereby I had given up my Tenure status nor my status as a Full Professor at the institution. After six years of online teaching in this capacity, and ten years of standard teaching before that, the DSU administration decided to revoke my contract and dismiss me without benefits despite my good standing at, and continued meaningful service to, the institution. Furthermore, and most importantly, DSU was violating a clause in the State Board of Higher Education regulations in not recognizing my tenure. After exhausting informal channels with the administration and getting nowhere, it was time to seek legal representation. I can say that I could not have made a better choice than Lee Grossman. He worked with me to understand the problem, frame arguments in the most cogent and insightful terms, and respectfully make my case to the entities involved in addressing my status and rights. Ultimately, we decided to settle the case and I was awarded a fair settlement. If you want compassionate, insightful, intelligent and straightforward representation, look to Lee Grossman. He'll share what is possible, and respects your time and your financial commitment. I think that he'll honestly represent you and make you aware of the realities of the challenges before you. You'll know where you stand, and be able to assess the risks and potential rewards of pursuing a case.

He is highly recommended.
Lee was very helpful to us, my husband was sick & only few days left, I left a message for him we needed a will made up, he called & talked to Glenn, brought paper's to the hospital next morning. Glenn signed & he died the next morning. We had Lee take care of the estate. He did a great job, I would recommend him if you ever need a lawyer.

Satisfied 110%
Mr. Grossman has represented us in a few different instances and has been very successful to say the least. We are very happy with his results and we will be a returning customer month after month. We always hope that we don't have to use people like Lee but when in business it is inevitable that at some point you need them on your side. Mr. Grossman is back 110% by us and we plan on using him next time. Thanks again SW&L for a great job done.
