“Knowing a case from stem to stern is essential to establishing and gaining the trust and confidence of the client,” he said. “(It) places one in the best position for success and is the foundation of the two things all lawyers do: advise and advocate.”
While attending Franklin & Marshall College, he decided to pursue a legal career because of his love of writing. He earned his Juris Doctor from Villanova University School of Law. After clerking for the Honorable Lawrence R. Daniels in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Grason became an associate at The Law Offices of T. Bruce Hanley LLC.
Four years later, the two partnered together to open Hanley & Grason, LLC in Towson, where he specializes in family law and civil litigation.
“I enjoy being a lawyer in a small town,” he said. “… I love the practice of law. The collegiality of it. Helping people. The performing of it. Ascertaining the truth. I enjoy what I do.”
A member of the Maryland State Bar Association and Maryland Bar Foundation, Grason is actively involved in the Baltimore County Bar Association, serving as a member of the Executive Council and previously serving as chairman of the Bench-Bar, Family Law and Advocate committees. He is also a panel member of the Peer Review Committee for the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission.
Active in his church’s parish, Grason also volunteers his time as a judge for the past five years in the Third Judicial Circuit Mock Trial Program.
“A lot of achievement in life is simply surviving the obstacles placed in front of you,” he said. “I enjoy helping people get through their toughest moments and reshaping their lives.”
