Born in Winston-Salem and raised in Clemmons, Steve graduated from West Forsyth High School in 1999 with one goal-to become a lawyer. After passing both the Florida and North Carolina Bar Exams, Steve became employed with a Florida construction company protecting their interests in the Great Recession of 2008.  Thereafter Steve became employed as an associate with Winston-Salem attorney Carl Parrish Law, PLLC in 2014 where Steve benefited from Carl Parrish’s nearly 40 years of experience in criminal defense, family law, and civil litigation. In 2014 Steve formed Grainger Law PLLC with a vision for delivering legal services at a rate that people could afford by utilizing the powerful technology available and having the competence to harness it. As a solo practitioner, Steve mainly represented indigent defendants in Superior Court and became a trial lawyer in the process, trying over a dozen cases to verdict. After devoting 5 years to this effort, Steve recognized his goals did not mesh with a successful business model. Steve joined Randolph M James, P.C., a contemporary of Carl Parrish, in March of 2020 where he continues in the field of civil litigation.
