Manton Grier, Jr. is a litigator with experience in business litigation, personal-injury defense, insurance defense, corporate litigation, and procurement disputes. He has successfully handled all phases of litigation, from pre-suit consultation to negotiations, trial, and appeal.
He is comfortable defending anything from a small wreck case to a major malpractice case against an assisted-living facility or nursing home. If he is unable to find grounds to dismiss a case early, he strives to give his clients an honest assessment of the costs and exposures of litigating a case, allowing his clients to make an early decision on whether to settle or try the case.
