My name is Ann Grant. I'm an attorney and know this story from both sides of the negotiating table. I experienced a high-conflict divorce that dragged on for five years – but in the end, I not only survived, I learned how to thrive. I now run a family law practice focused on helping women like you navigate the legal minefields and outsmart the system so that you can get to a new and better life as fast as possible -- with your sanity intact and your money in the bank.

I received my Juris Doctorate degree from the University of San Diego School of Law where I graduated cum laude, 1991.  While there, I served as Editor of the San Diego Law Review. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in 1984.  I am the former editor of The Woman Advocate Newsletter, the official publication of the Woman Advocate Committee of the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association.

I began my legal practice at the law firm of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP in 1991.  Later, I joined Howrey & Simon’s Los Angeles office where I practiced as a corporate litigator from 1993-2004.  I was a partner in the complex business litigation department and represented plaintiffs and defendants in matters involving class action lawsuits and litigation involving a wide variety of contract disputes, unfair business practices and consumer fraud. I litigated complex antitrust matters and tried high profile white collar criminal defense cases and patent infringement cases. After I left Howrey, I taught law school at Southwestern University in Los Angeles.

I started my own law firm in Manhattan Beach in 2008 where I currently focus on family law. In 2015, I joined a group of like minded professionals and together we opened an office in Hermosa Beach to further our vision of a holistic approach to this significant life transition.
