DWI
We hired Kurt Gransee to defend my daughter who was charged with DUI despite several serious flaws with the charge. First and foremost, she was not driving her vehicle as noted to authorities by the store clerk who stated she had been sitting in the parking lot for over 8 hours. Hayes county also waited 22 months (pre covid) to actually charge her with this offense which greatly hampered her ability to locate witnesses that could corroborate the store clerks’ statements. Mr Gransee vigorously defended my daughter’s legal rights including the right to a speedy trial. After several hearings and the DA’s refusal to drop the charges, the judge ruled in favor of Mr. Gransee’s speedy trial motion and the charge was dropped. I have no doubt that without Mr. Gransee’s knowledge of the law, persistence, and willingness to fight the charge, my daughter would have been wrongly convicted of DUI. I would highly recommend Mr. Gransee to anyone in need of legal counsel.

Knowledgeable and Professional
I could not be more satisfied with the work Mr. Gransee did for me. He went above and beyond to get me the best deal I possibly could and it exceeded all my expectations. He was communicative, friendly, and incredibly helpful when I was dealing with an experience that I never thought I would be in. He put my mind at ease right from our initial conversation. His executive secretary Elsa, was incredible as well, always keeping me informed as to what was going on. I appreciate everything Mr. Gransee did for me.

Second degree felony drug charge & felony drug charges
I was on deferred for a 2nd degree felony drug charge and I picked up a new felony drug charge.  I was facing a motion to revoke probation “mtr” for the deferred and either time or another probation for the new case. Mr. Gransee filed various motions and was able to get the new charge dismissed and I was continued on Deferred Adjudication with out-patient treatment.  I was very pleased with the outcome and I definitely recommend Mr. Gransee to anyone else with serious felony drug charges. Thank you Mr. Gransee -E.M

Professional and Caring
Mr. Gransee reviewed my case carefully and explained my options thoroughly. He answered all of my questions and Elsa, in the front office, kept me posted on the status of my case when I called for information. I am pleased to say that Mr. Gransee was able to eventually get my case dismissed.

Amazing Attorney!!
My experience with his law firm was nothing less than 5 stars. From the day I caught my charge up until now almost 9 years later I would highly recommend them. I was a first time offender and Gransee handled everything for me making my appearance almost none. I was very pleased with the communication, their commitment to me, their professionalism, the amount of expertise and the overall outcome of my case. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank You for everything!

Great Lawyer
I was charged with a serious felony assault and I was referred to Mr. Gransee‘s office by a family friend. He was able to get my case dismissed so that my record can remain clean and ultimately he got my records expunged. I didn’t feel like just a client, he showed a genuine interest in my well-being and in my future. His office staff was always professional, courteous, and helpful.

“I was wrongly charged with indecent exposure. Mr. Gransee took the case to trial and I was found NOT GUILTY. This allowed me to get the case expunged.

Amazing Lawyer!!! "Case Dismissed"
During the highlight of my life and career I was wrongly charged with indecent exposure. Due to the nature of the allegation, and with my place of employment being with the state I was left with no employment. I met with Kurt for the first time about a week after I was charged with this terrible crime. He seemed very knowledgeable in criminal law, during the free consultation he looked skimmed through all the paperwork I was given during the arrest and booking process, he was making very detailed notes as he was going over all the paperwork. At this point I knew he was going to be the my lawyer for this case. After several pre-trial conferences and hearing dates being reset, Kurt proceeded to a suppression motion hearing. During this hearing Kurt showed confidence and experience and tore up the state's witnesses, and made a great closing argument to the judge. The case untimely was thrown out, and now this case can get expunged. In closing if anybody is charged with a crime I would recommend Mr. Kurt Gransee to represent you in court. He was always on time even when he had several cases on the same days. He always kept me informed of what type of pleas the state was trying to offer, he also informs you of his fee and policies up front, so there are no surprises.

Outstanding Service
I had never been charged with anything more than a speeding ticket in my life. I went to Rush & Gransee in search of help. I was charged with a felony for a false accusation. Rush & Gransee were understanding, informative, and knowledgeable. I gave them the details on the false accusation and they gave opinions on course of action. I am very pleased with the help I received. They are prompt, and worked diligently on my case. I am so thankful for the care, and responsiveness I received. The accusations against me were dropped. I don't believe I could of gotten better help from any other attorney.

He was very compassionate & kept me well informed explaining everything to me. He also actually cared about my fear & anxiety that I had with my pending charge. When my court hearing came for the prosecution & for me to face the judge, Mr. Gransee was so amazing he got the prosecutor to drop my DWI to Obstruction of a Highway & also with deferment!!!

Peer and Client Review
I am a practicing attorney and I have known Kurt for close to two decades and hired him once some years back to remedy a legal situation I then faced. I can say without hesitation that Kurt is one heck of a lawyer. Anyone facing a minor legal obstical to a major life changing event would be well served if they hired Kurt as their attorney. The man knows his business and takes his job seriously. He truely cares about his clients and the outcome of their cases.

Excellent experience
I've had numerous run ins with the law that I'm not proud to admit by any means. My past experiences have felt completely one sided and like nothing was in my favor. My last experience I decided to hire Kurt Gransee and it was a completely different experience. It's the first time I felt like I was on the winning side and that I even had a chance at a positive outcome. He got my case dismissed with little to do on my part. Considering I was just shuffled thru the system in the past I was ecstatic by the outcome. Fingers crossed that I never need his services again but if I did I wouldn't hesitate to call.

Took care of everything
I was arrested for DUI while asleep in my car in a parking lot. No previous arrests of any kind. Rush and Gransee's office took care of everything. I didn't have to show up for anything. It took a little while, just shy of a year for everything to get taken care of, but in the end, charges were never filed and my license was never suspended. During the process, I received regular updates via email on the progress of my case. It was great to have everything taken care of, no worries about dates and paperwork and needing to take time off and all of that.

Defended me in case involving serious felony charges
Case involved charges of alleged sexual offense. I was never disappointed in the time and effort he put into my defense as well as his advise. He kept me informed of the complex proceedings over the two years that preceded the final court date. In the end, just as we were preparing for a jury trial - during which he kept me fully involved - he negotiated a very acceptable deferred adjudication plea and minimal probationary period.
