My Story

I was born Montana and grew up in Wyoming. I grew up in the Rocky Mountains, learning to love and cherish the outdoors. During my summers in college, I worked as a wild-land firefighter, traveling the western United States on a hotshot crew. I continued on as a firefighter after graduating, working as a sawyer and squad-boss. Wildland firefighting taught me about intensely hard work and gave me an appreciation for a hard day’s pay. Sometimes we were forced to work up to 18 days straight in the rugged and remote mountainous country, where I packed a heavy chainsaw up and down those mountains to cut fire line in the fight against raging forest fires. It was during this period in my life I learned the definition of “hard work” and most importantly how to be dependable to others whose lives and safety depended on it. Firefighting taught me major life lessons on hard work, dependability, trust, credibility, and accountability. And those lessons carried on with me through law school and into my practice as an attorney.

During the first ten years of my practice, I worked for the greatest trial lawyer in American History; Gerry Spence and his law firm. In 2013, I was acknowledged as one of the Top 40 Lawyers under the age of 40 years old. In 2010, I graduated from Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College located on the beautiful Thunderhead Ranch outside of Dubois, Wyoming, where I return each year to teach.

Over the past 14 years, I had the privilege of representing remarkable and wonderful people winning seven and eight figure oilfield and trucking accident settlements. There are numerous stories of great people whose lives were destroyed as a result of other’s bad decisions and failures to be accountable and responsible. From oilfield and gas field drilling and pipeline accidents, industrial accidents, trucking, motorcycle and vehicular accidents, products liability, workplace accidents, unsafe premises conditions, nursing home malfeasance, I fight hard for my clients with a great team.

I am satisfied with Mr. Lawson's performance in handling my case. He was able to secure compensation for myself and 3 other workers after sustaining injuries during an explosion and fire at a drilling location. Mr. Lawson spearheaded our case by taking the lead role under consult of a senior attorney at the law firm he serves. He performed effectively as a liaison between his employer and co-council in the state where the incident occurred. Mr. Lawson acted as the leader of a multiple member team that included other attorneys, paralegals, and subject-matter experts. He showed genuine compassion during a difficult chapter of my life. Mr. Lawson earned my trust and I was able to communicate to him information that was not easy for me to talk about. He is remarkably responsive while balancing a heavy work load. He made it a priority of the team to always keep us informed of case developments in a timely manner. Mr. Lawson built upon his knowledge of the industry while working our case by inquiring with us and subject-matter experts to gain a complete understanding of the entire incident. This case has contributed to improved safety standards in the oil and gas industry. I did deserve the financial compensation that grant fought to get for me but the biggest win (in my opinion) was our contribution to supporting improved industry standards that promote a safer working environment. Nobody should have to live through the kind of nightmare that we endured.

Grant was brought into my life at a hard time. He took the time while preparing my case and got to know me and my family. I never would have thought of a lawyer becoming so involved in the well being of a client but he did and I'm happy to call him a friend today. He took my case very serious and was very professional. I believe grant is passionate about the well being of others and especially his clients. There were times during my case that I know he was as emotional about it as I was. I also found it nice being able to relate to a guy that's just like everyone else and has worked hard to get where he is. Grant didn't go after his career in law until after he had worked a few hard years first. Trust me when I say he will put in the time plus some to get the job done right. It was a long road to get where we have and I wouldn't have done it without him

Grant Lawson and his paralegal Anita were easy to work with. When we first met I was still in severe pain and shock from losing a leg and suffering catastrophic injuries. They were never pushy and treated us like family. Grant did all the research of evidence and hard work in putting the case together. We were always keep informed and part of the process, which took two years and eight months. We were always well prepared for every step and Grant and Anita both have great reputations in the legal community. Anyone who needs a great lawyer, Grant is fighter for worker safety and rights. I highly recommend.
