Jack Grimes is an Army Cavalry soldier turned lawyer. Or, wait a minute—it’s actually the other way around! Jack has the unique experience of attending law school and THEN heading into the military.

Today, he has been commissioned as an Air Force JAG Corps Lieutenant Colonel while he runs his private practice in Northern Virginia. He’s a man that stands for upholding the law in every aspect of his life.
