Rating: 10 Lawyer Rating - 10 out of 10
I give Graham a 10 for numerous reasons. I see all kinds of attorneys who practice criminal defense, most are afraid of serious cases or afraid to go to trial on a case. However, Graham is a guy who is afraid of nothing in criminal law. He will take any case no matter how bad it is and will always do the best job anyone can do for the client. He is a great attorney.
