His reports are always afforded a great deal of credibility and deference by the courts because Grant is always very clear about his role and duty of impartiality.

He provides expert insight into impaired driving cases and related matters based on his extensive career as a police officer, screening device instructor and qualified technician. I have known Grant for several years and have consulted with him on strategy for my cases.

Grant is outstanding. His knowledge and experience is first rate. I frequently use him in Criminal Impaired Driving, IRP, and Traffic matters. Having Grant on board in a criminal impaired driving case has been the difference in numerous cases where the charges were either dropped or the client was acquitted. Grant understands the intricacies and challenges faced by police and prosecutors in Impaired driving cases and he readily uses that knowledge to help build a formidable defense. He is also an excellent witness. He comes to court prepared and is amicable and very persuasive. His reports are also first class and professional. As a result of working with Grant, I have enjoyed an extraordinarily high win rate in criminal impaired driving cases. I don’t believe that would be the case had I not sought Grant’s assistance.
