  • Robert W Gambrell

    I have followed Mr. Granvold's answers on Avvo, which give me insight into his practice. Many bankruptcy attorneys just fill out the bankruptcy forms, but it is clear that Richard represents his clients and is willing to handle complex litigation for them when needed, including student loan discharge litigation. This makes him a seasoned veteran. His responses to questions asked shows the breadth of his knowledge. In addition to knowing the law. Based upon his responses in Avvo, I heartedly endorse Richard Granvold.
