RICHMOND, Va. – March 29, 2010 – Stephanie E. Grana, with the law firm Breit Cantor Grana Buckner , has been named to the Influential Women of Virginia class of 2010. Grana will be recognized at a luncheon in Richmond on May 20. The awards are given by the Virginia Lawyers Weekly to individuals who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities, and society at large. Recipients range from lawyers and doctors to teachers, non-profit organizers, and entrepreneurs.
Grana has exclusively handled serious plaintiffs’ injury and medical malpractice cases for over 15 years, having achieved over ten verdicts and settlements exceeding a million dollars. She has successfully resolved several high profile cases and has been quoted in the national press and television. She is the past president of the Metro Richmond Women’s Bar Association and the Lewis F. Powell, Jr. Inn of Court. She also serves on the Executive Council for the Board of Governors of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. She was voted by her peers for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America in medical malpractice law and was selected for Virginia Super Lawyers.
Grana is tirelessly driven to succeed — for herself, clients, and the community. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Richmond in 3 years while participating in varsity synchronized swimming. She earned her J.D. from University of Richmond Law School with honors and clerked for The Honorable Joseph E. Baker of the Virginia Court of Appeals, followed by a successful private practice. In 2009, she became one of the founders of Cantor Stoneburner Ford Grana & Buckner.
Her community involvement ranges from leading alumni organizations at the University of Richmond, judging Virginia Synchronized Swimming Association competitions and presenting at area high schools on justice in Virginia, to serving on the PTA and organizing annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer teams.
