// about


dedicated . hard-working . committed to you

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. For the last 18 years I have been successful in representing hundreds of PI clients, helping them navigate through the courts of The State of New York.

a personal touch . strength in speed

A Personal Touch. It's that simple, and it's a principle belief at the Granich Law Firm. I 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! Although a smaller firm, the number one commitment is YOU. Always available and responsive; personally answering your questions and concerns, and, if necessary, trying your case, giving it the individual attention it deserves. Representation is limited to serious personal injury cases only. In doing so, you receive 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. Selectiveness in accepting representation and commitment to a relatively small client base translates into an ability to move 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 The Granich Law firm, 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.
