Case Dismissed!
If you are looking for a a lawyer who will fight for you when you are wrongly accused this is your man. I was falsely accused of assault. I sent in the facts and proof and after speaking to Mr. Grano he advised me that he felt very confident it would be dismissed. I just received the great news today that my case was dismissed. I can’t thank him enough. I highly recommend Mr. Grano.

DUI Defense - Marijuana
Marc was the best attorney I could have hoped to have on my case. I was facing jail time after a third offense DUI. All charges have been dropped. I may also be able to get my legal fees back in a settlement against the New Mexico State Police. All I have heard from others is that Mr. Grano is the best, which i have no doubt of.

Best Defense Attorney in New Mexico
Marc Grano will do whatever it takes to win your case. He had the prosecutor visibly nervous in my case, and turned a sure conviction into a dismissed case. If you're looking for the best representation you can find in New Mexico, you've found it with Marc Grano!

Marc Grano Cares About Your Personal Injury
Mr. Marc Grano handled my personal injury from a car accident with the highest level of professionalism. I highly recommend his services and I am very grateful for the care and attention he attributed to my case. He didn’t give up as he fought through the red tape with the insurance company and he was able to get me a great settlement. He truly cares about his clients and works hard to make sure they are treated fairly.

OUTSTANDING
Outstanding Marc Grano was a breath of fresh air in a stale environment. We had dealt with many attorneys throughout our lives personally and professionally. From being a qualifying real estate broker in 3 states, simultaneously to having family businesses for 40 years plus 28 years at AT&T. Our family has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Marc Grano is the tops for dedication, determination, and proven desire to win for his clients. We were drug into a 25-year-old controversy by a zealous officer. The short story is Marc Grano got the case against us dismissed "with prejudice", which means we are done with it forever!! Marc Grano came highly recommended and proved quickly his capabilities, knowledge of the law, honesty, and great desire to protect us by "WINNING". He is a testament to what "Should be done" through thorough effort, determination and unequaled desire to prevail to our benefit. You will not go wrong with Marc & the opposition will know you have a Top Gun in your corner!! Good luck! He is the best & we've known the rest... -James

Great Service
Marc took my case on and was straight forward from the beginning and made no promises. After several months of work, Marc was able to get my case dismissed before trial. I would recommend Marc if you find yourself in a jam. Amber was also very helpful making sure I took care of my end of things so it made everything easy!

Fantastic work
An overly excited officer slapped me with 4 different marijuana related charges, including DUI. Marc was great. He was on the ball and kept me updated about every step in the possess. Due to his efforts, everything was dropped except Possession which resulted in having to pay a 50 dollar fine and minor court costs. That's it. The case had a highly favorable outcome, without a trial, and there was minimal hassle. Marc was competent, wise and punctual.

Marc Grano
Wrongfully accused of DWI in a commercial vehicle. Marc was very professional and helpful. He did all the paperwork without my girlfriend or myself having to go to Las Vegas NM. We are from Texas. Marc was incredible. All charges were dismissed. We would recommend Mr. Grano to anyone. Thank you Marc!

Definitely Recommend
Marc is easy to talk to, and from the moment our conversation started, he focused on the facts of my case. It is clear that he cares about his clients and he fights to get them the best possible outcome. He explained my rights as well as the legal implications surrounding my case. He did a great job advising and guiding me through the process. Because I am out of state, Marc appeared on my behalf and saved me a trip to New Mexico to appear before a judge. He also got all the charges dismissed. We had an excellent outcome. I would definitely recommend Marc Grano.

Excellent Service!!
First off I want to say Marc did a great job . He got everything handled in a timely manner and gave me all the options that would be best for me . He is very knowledgeable and will give his all while representing you. He does not beat around the bush, he gets straight to the point . I can not thank him enough for his great work and effort . He is very reasonable with his price and will work something out with you to make sure it is fair and something you can work with . I can not stress how pleased I am with his work. It was not looking in my favor, but he was able to get everything handled the right way. I would and have already recommended him to people I know.

Drug trafficking
Marc was beyond exceptional from beginning to end. He gave me a fair price up front, and worked with me on payments. (Other lawyers were quoting me double the price.) I was facing some serious drug trafficking charges after my house was raided by police. The police had a pretty solid case against me, or so I thought. Marc found suppression issues with the warrant and so on. We did not go to trial which I wanted to avoid at all costs. I spent one night in jail when I turned myself in. The judge even agreed to dismiss from my record. In the end Im serving 18 months probation, some community service, and a small fine for possession of controlled substance. Marc was very upfront with me from he beginning, gave me all my options, and led in me in the right direction throughout. Worth every penny.
