Brandon J. Grable is a trial and appellate attorney based in San Antonio, Texas.  He is a general practitioner but often represents Clients in civil rights cases against governments and police officers that violate the Constitution.  

Brandon runs his practice by one simple, time-tested rule: treat every client like family. He represents his clients as if they were his own mother or child. Brandon brings with him what is not found on a resume-grit, small town values, and humble beginnings.

Brandon began his path at 17-years-old when he skipped his high school graduation in small town Arizona so he could attend basic training for the United States Army. He served in the Army honorably for 10 years as a Non-commissioned Officer (NCO), which included combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. He brought with him unbreakable bonds he shares with his brothers and sisters in arms. These values and experiences is what drives him. Brandon brings commitment, drive, and devotion to each one of his clients. No matter the situation, Brandon ensures his Clients get the due process and rule of law they are entitled.

While his focus is to represent and defend Servicemembers and Veterans, Brandon regularly and successfully represents individuals, families, small businesses, and large corporations in a wide array of matters that include, but are not limited to criminal matters, breach of contract disputes, civil rights violations, discrimination, and fraud/bad faith allegations.

Brandon earned his undergraduate degree from American Military University with a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies, magna cum laude. He received his law degree from St. Mary's University School of Law, graduating in the top fifteen percent, and was a member of the Law Journal editorial board.

Best lawyer I've worked with
I've worked with a number of different lawyers on everything from business contracts, to criminal defense and civil litigation. Brandon Grable and his law firm has been hands down the most responsive, organized and professional firm I've ever worked with.

Professional, Caring, Fighter for justice
I must say, my scenario added quite a bit of extra drama by occurring just before Covid-19 started, and the protocols for the courts kept things interesting, with a number of postponements. The representation by Mr Grable and team was highly professional, and I had every confidence in them having my best interest in mind. The resulting favorable outcome is all I could ask of them.

Smart and Aggressive!
I needed an aggressive lawyer to represent me in a civil dispute. I'm glad I found Brandon and his team. They were aggressive and out-of-the-box thinkers. They were in constant contact with me, and kept me aware of their strategy. Brandon's efforts worked wonders as my matter resolved in my favor. They were worth every penny!

Law Enforcement Civil Rights Violations
The leadership of Mr. Grable and his exceptional team did an awesome job in their representation of my civil rights. This starts with the person(s) answering the phones and all the way up. Their professionalism was impeccable. Mr. Grable answered my every question and kept me abreast of the case progress each step of the way. I highly recommend Brandon Grable for all of your civil rights needs. He is dedicated to see that justice is served and will do everything in his power to see it through to the end.

The best
I highly recommend Brandon Grable. He listens and treated us like family as he worked to favorably resolve a lawsuit. We couldn't have asked for a more competent attorney and we will seek his counsel and expertise again should we ever need representation.

Amazing Lawyer - Superior Results!
Mr. Grable represented me and my wife in a tough, long, and complicated case involving a few big corporations who just "finger-pointed" the blame at each other. Mr. Grable took the time to listen to my concerns and research every issue. He went above and beyond checking on me and my family throughout the process. Mr. Grable produced superior results in a very difficult and challenging case.
