John Grinton represents local and national clients in Louisiana state, federal, and workers’ compensation courts. He regularly represents a wide range of clientele, including insurance companies, architects, engineers, contractors, businesses and individuals in all aspects of litigation.  His practice focuses on workers’ compensation defense, commercial and construction litigation, premises and products liability, legal malpractice, trucking litigation, and complex personal injury cases.

John prides himself on the responsiveness he provides to each client.  Every case is different, and John’s clients appreciate his ability to creatively identify the most efficient and cost-effective way to close claims.  Sometimes that involves reaching the best compromise available.  In other instances, it requires proving his client’s case at trial.  In either case, John proactively moves each of his cases toward a quick and efficient resolution.
