Michael P. Grubbs

Michael Grubbs is a trial lawyer in CalderonBarton’s litigation department.  Michael has experience handling catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and other cases defending the rights of people who have been injured by other’s negligence. Mr. Grubbs has a knack for assessing cases with an eye for a corporation or nursing home’s probable excuses, and developing a litigation strategy focused on blunting these defenses.

Michael is an Arizona native, and he currently lives in Gilbert with his wife and three children. After graduating from a local high school, Mike lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for two years as a service missionary. Upon returning home he earned a bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University, graduating Summa Cum Laude with honors, and finishing with a 4.0 GPA. He currently volunteers at his local church working with youth. In his increasingly rare spare time, he enjoys reading, playing soccer, playing games, following NBA basketball, and spending time with family and friends


Michael Grubbs spent the first part of his career practicing at an insurance defense firm.  While there he practiced a wide variety of cases such as malpractice, negligence, personal injury, accident, slip and fall, auto accident, wrongful death, premises liability, construction defect, fire loss, product liability, contract disputes, and general tort liability. 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 understanding and knowledge that Michael now utilizes in prosecuting claims on behalf of Plaintiffs. He chose to “change sides” so that he could help to make a difference in the lives of individuals who have been wronged, and effect needed change in the medical field and elsewhere. He is currently licensed in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.

He graduated from Arizona Summit Law School, where he was Valedictorian of his class, graduated Summa Cum Laude, finished with a 3.97 GPA, and passed with the highest bar score from Arizona Summit Law School for the subsequent Arizona bar exam. While attending law school he earned eight separate CALI awards, awarded to the top student in an individual class, was on the dean’s list every eligible semester, served as a staff editor on the Arizona Summit Law Review, and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship given to 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.
