Biography

Grant is a Partner in the firm’s Kalispell office. He has a broad-based practice with over 8 years of experience serving individual and business clients with a variety of personal and commercial legal needs.

He also assists clients with all aspects of trust and estate administration, including handling will and trust disputes, and he helps family members obtain guardianship and conservatorship for their loved ones with disabilities. In addition, Grant advises clients on elder law matters including planning for long term care and Medicaid eligibility.

Grant enjoys learning about his clients’ businesses and providing creative solutions to help them succeed.

Grant also works on a variety of real estate matters, both residential and commercial. He assists with purchase and sale transactions, leases, easements, development, and financing transactions.
