Michael P. Grubbs
Michael Grubbs spent the first part of his career practicing at an insurance defense firm. There, he represented insurers against plaintiffs in malpractice, negligence, accident, wrongful death, and construction defect cases. By working at an insurance defense firm, Michael obtained experience understanding how insurance companies and defendants generally evaluate and process claims. This insight provides valuable knowledge that Michael now utilizes in prosecuting claims on behalf of Plaintiffs against insurance companies and nursing homes. Michael chose to “change sides” to help make a difference in the lives of individuals injured by medical mistakes. He hopes his work will improve and encourage accountability in the medical field, where medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death. He is currently licensed in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.
Michael graduated from Arizona Summit Law School, where he was Valedictorian of his class. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.97 GPA. He achieved the highest bar score from Arizona Summit Law School in the Arizona bar exam. In law school, Michael earned eight separate CALI awards (awarded to the top student in an individual class) was on the dean’s list every eligible semester. Michael was a staff editor on the Arizona Summit Law Review and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship as the top student in the school. Michael also volunteered over 100 hours as a Rule 38 Certified student in the ASLS Veteran’s Legal Clinic, assisting Veterans with general legal aid.
Michael is from Mesa, Arizona, where he currently lives with his wife and three children. After graduating from a local high school, he lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as a service missionary for two years.
