Mr. Grant began his legal career in 1976 after earning his law degree from the University of Akron School of Law and the Ohio Supreme Court approving him to practice law in the state of Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court has also granted him certification to handle capital murder cases, and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio has issued its approval for him to practice in its courtrooms, which allows him to defend clients facing both state and federal charges.

Over the past 40 years, which included a term as the Ohio Assistant Attorney General, Mr. Grant has earned a reputation as one of the state's leading lawyers, which has resulted in a number of honors, including a "Good" rating from Avvo.
