Biography

A respected Florida foreclosure lawyer, Miami-based Dillon Graham is the founder and managing attorney of Graham Legal, P.A., which is located in Coral Gables (Miami), Florida.

With more than 30 years of legal experience, he possesses a unique dedication to helping victims pursue justice in cases related to foreclosure defense and personal injury.

"I don't know of anything more satisfying," reflects Dillon, "than to be able to help someone during what may be one of the hardest times in their life. I really count myself lucky because I can use my knowledge and skill as a foreclosure lawyer to help people when they face a foreclosure on their home. We can't undo the past, but I can certainly help them look toward a brighter future, and that means a lot to me."

Mr. Graham is an experienced civil trial attorney and is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, local U.S. District Courts, and in all Florida state courts.

He has obtained the highest available peer-review rating of "A-V" by Martindale-Hubbell.* He is a proud member of the Florida Justice Association. Furthermore, he is a member of the American Justice Association, the Miami-Dade County Bar Association, and the Miami-Dade County Justice Association.

Martindale-Hubbell provides the most widely recognized ratings of lawyers, and has been doing so for over 100 years. There are two categories of ratings. "Legal Ability Ratings" range from "C" (for Good to High), "B" (for High to Very High), and "A" (for Very High to Preeminent). The "General Ethical Standards Rating" is "V" (Very High).
