MARK GRAYSON was born and raised in the Ladera Heights area of Los Angeles county. He attended Inglewood High School from 1970 through 1972 before transferring to Chadwick School in Palos Verdes, from which he graduated in 1974. After High School, Mr. Grayson attended both the University of California at Los Angeles and California State University Northridge from 1974 through 1978 for his undergraduate education. He began his collegiate education at UCLA but transferred to CSUN because they offered a wide variety of pre-law courses that UCLA did not offer at that time. He was already concentrating on law even during his college years.
in 1978, MARK GRAYSON attended Southwestern University School of Law. He received his Juris Doctorate of law degree from Southwestern in 1981. Mr. Grayson passed the 1981 California State Bar Exam to allow him to start his practice of law.
MARK GRAYSON’S father, SAUL GRAYSON, a prominent Los Angeles personal injury attorney, had long been representing the rights of injury victims. Beginning immediately in 1981, MARK GRAYSON joined his father’s law firm, then named GRAYSON & GROSS, and MARK GRAYSON focused his practice on the representation of those injured due to the fault and negligence of others. Just five months into his legal career, Mark was successful in winning the first jury trial in which he was involved.
MARK GRAYSON and SAUL GRAYSON became partners in 1984 when they opened the law offices of GRAYSON & GRAYSON. Not only were MARK and SAUL GRAYSON family, they prided themselves on the fact that many of their clients became long term clients and friends, all creating a family environment for the clients and the firm. There are several families for whom the Graysons have represented three generations of its members.
MARK GRAYSON expanded his practice in 1985 to also include the representation of victims of medical negligence. MARK GRAYSON’S first medical malpractice jury trial occurred in 1990 where he was successful in having a jury award his client $3,424,600 as compensation for a substantial foot injury. We understand that it was a record verdict in California for that type of injury.
In the last 30 years, MARK GRAYSON has established himself as a preeminent Los Angeles accident lawyer who also has the ability to command top dollar settlements for his clients. He and his firm have a long history of winning claims for injury victims.
