Possessing extensive civil trial experience, he is a forceful courtroom advocate on their behalf when litigation is necessary, but he also has helped many clients come to an accord on some or all of these matters through mediation or by taking the lead in negotiating a settlement agreement. Mr. Grotta also assists clients whose marriages have previously been dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting or support court orders, and his family law background has additionally encompassed paternity establishment and disputes as well as obtaining protective orders for domestic violence victims.

Mr. Grotta's successful track record has earned him a great deal of recognition from his fellow attorneys, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.
