Grant graduated from the University of Texas in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Advertising and a minor in Business Foundations.  He then attended Texas Tech School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor in 2013.  While at Tech Law, Grant was an Articles Editor on the Texas Tech Law Review.   Grant exclusively practices family law with a concentration in divorce, modifications, enforcements, custody issues and disputes, child support, and the drafting of marital agreements, including pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.

Grant began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney with the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s office.  While a prosecutor, Grant gained extensive courtroom and trial experience; he spent a significant portion of his time with the DA’s office in a court that specifically handled family violence cases.  It was here that Grant was first exposed to the complex joys intrinsic in the practice of family law.  Since joining Gray & Becker in 2016, Grant has taken the skills he developed at the DA’s office and used them to zealously advocate for his clients, with a specific focus on settling family law disputes while minimizing costs and conflict.  To Grant, preserving the co-parenting relationship between parties remains a high priority.  Despite this focus on minimizing conflict, however, Grant is no stranger to the courtroom and—thanks to his time as a prosecutor—has no problem advocating for his clients before a judge or jury should the circumstances so dictate.

Grant represents clients in family law litigation cases, including divorce actions, property characterization, reimbursement claims, and all child-related issues including custody and child support.  Grant also represents clients in modification and enforcement of existing family law orders, including modifying and enforcing child support and conservatorship issues.  He also has experience aiding clients in need of emergency protective orders and temporary restraining orders in situations involving family violence, and in drafting/reviewing pre-nuptial and post-nuptial property agreements.
