Hello. I am Chris Flint. I have been practicing law for over 20 years and have tried many cases to verdict, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in both New York and Vermont.
I was born and raised in the Albany area, the fifth of seven children. I received my undergraduate degree from Manhattan College and my law degree from Hofstra University School of Law.
My father worked for a local power company and my mother was a school teacher. They both worked very hard to ensure that we all had a decent upbringing. Two of the greatest qualities I inherited from my parents were a strong work ethic and an understanding that we all have an obligation to help those in need. I bring my work ethic and sense of responsibility to my profession. I work hard for and care about my clients.
The legal system can be intimidating. I consider it my personal responsibility to guide each of my clients through the litigation process and provide quality representation.
I have known Joe Granich for several years, both as a friend, and, on occasion, an adversary. He is a great person and an excellent lawyer. Together, Joe and I will work to provide our clients with the very best representation possible.
Hello, I am Joe Granich. I am married and have three children. I was born in Albany, New York. Albany lies in the heart of the Hudson Valley, a formerly heavily industrialized section of the State of New York. Most of my family earned its living in the cement factories and textile mills in this area.
As a child, I attended Christian Brothers Military Academy. I have always been an avid outdoorsman and during my childhood, I spent a lot of time hunting, fishing and hiking. I was also very active in the Boy Scouts of America and earned the Eagle Scout award in the Spring of 1990. I went to Albany High School. I then graduated from Binghamton University with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Science.
I realized early on in my educational career that I wanted to really make an impact on the lives of people. I decided to become a lawyer, and went to Albany Law School.
My first job out of law school was as an Assistant Corporation Counsel to the City of Albany handling civil litigation. After handling many jury trials, I decided to go into private practice. I wanted to join forces with an experienced trial attorney and someone who had the same goal: to help people. I had known Chris Flint for several years before we joined together and knew his reputation as a skilled litigator. With my science background and my love for the courtroom, I knew we would be a winning team focusing on catastrophic personal injury.
// our approach
a personal touch . strength in speed
A Personal Touch. It's that simple, and it's a principle we believe in at Flint & Granich. We recently saw a law firm advertising that they had 17,000 cases. Based on the number of attorneys in that firm, the attorney-to-client ratio was nearly 500 to 1! At Flint & Granich we are two attorneys with one commitment...YOU. We copy our clients on all papers in connection with their lawsuit. Attorneys Chris Flint and Joseph A. Granich are always available and responsive, personally answering your questions and concerns, and, if necessary, trying your case, giving it the individual attention it deserves. We limit our representation to serious personal injury cases only. In doing so, we provide that simplest, most important and most elusive service that a lawyer can provide: someone you can actually reach and talk to when you need advice during a crisis.
Strength in speed. Our selectiveness in accepting representation and commitment to a relatively small client base translates into an ability to move our clients' cases forward as rapidly as possible. When you are facing the most crucial period of your life, you should not be wasting your energy trying to motivate your lawyer to move. At Flint & Granich, we are committed to the principle that justice be sure and swift. Call us toll-free at (518) 862-7181, and permit us to show you how fast we will move for you.
