Attorney Profile

Grant Gillenwater focuses his practice on personal injury and wrongful death litigation as an attorney at Morgan & Morgan. Working out of the national firm's Melbourne, Florida, office, he represents clients throughout the state. Mr. Gillenwater is admitted to practice in Florida and before the U.S. District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida.

The primary portion of Mr. Gillenwater's practice involves his assisting people who have been harmed as a result of the negligence of property owners and managers. These cases are governed by the theory of premises liability, and they include slips and falls, inadequate security and animal bites. In most cases, the owners were aware or should have been aware of the dangerous condition on their property that led to the incident, but they failed to correct the situation or notify their licensees and invitees. Mr. Gillenwater's defendants have included hotels, retail establishments, parks, apartment complexes and amusement parks, and they have also included swimming pool owners and managers of parking lots. During his career, he has been successful in obtaining sizable jury awards on behalf of his clients, while in other instances he has been able to negotiate favorable settlements outside of the courtroom.

Mr. Gillenwater obtained his undergraduate education at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, where he majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2009. Remaining in the state, he then went on to attend Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, and he was a teaching assistant in trial advocacy before being awarded his Juris Doctor and being inducted into The Order of Barristers in 2012. His professional memberships include the Florida Justice Association, and he sits on the board of directors of a local nonprofit organization that assists low-income individuals and families.
