Lionel Granger is a Defense Attorney and senior partner of the law firm Granger, McCullum, & Kerstetter. Highly competitive and high-priced, he's not made any friends at the Special Victims Unit, nor at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office; one of his former clients supposedly killed ADA Alexandra Cabot, while one of the associates at his firm, Jason Whitaker, exploited the assault and attempted murder of ADA Casey Novak in hopes of presenting an alternate theory to help his client avoid a rape charge. The best that can be said for Granger is he goes to great lengths to defend his clients.

Known ClientsEdit

  • Case dismissed after Zapata's cohorts killed DEA Agent Tim Donovan, the only witness for the prosecution.
  • Case dismissed after Barclay's daughter Hilary claimed that she had murdered serial rapist Horace Gorman.
  • Repeatedly sought to make a plea bargain for his client, as he feared the co-defendants might turn on her, but was rejected by Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak. However, Novak eventually realized that she would need O'Malley's testimony to convict her cohorts, and eventually offered a small deal. It should be noted that even he noticed the excessive nature of O'Malley, and described her as "Off her nut." O'Malley was later convicted for murder and kidnapping.
  • Lost the case - Keppler was convicted for four counts of fourth-degree sexual abuse of a minor - and then made a bold move of suing the Special Victims Unit for failing to arrest Keppler immediately after his behavior was first reported. The suit was thrown out after Keppler was killed by one of his former victims.
  • Defended Lynnwood against murder charges despite a potential conflict of interest (Lynnwood had killed his former client). Earned a threat of disbarment from Judge Barry Moredock for putting the clearly incompetent Lynnwood on the stand in order to upset him for the sake of an insanity defense.
  • Initially defended Butler on charges of deliberately spreading HIV without telling his partners. Before trials officially began, Butler was severly injured and burned from hydrochloric acid in retaliation by Rebecca Ellison, one of his partners who had been infected with his strain of HIV. Granger in turn filed suit against the NYPD and the District Attorney's Office for failing to protect his client and had charges of assault brought against Ellison.
  • After Butler's grandfather died during Ellison's trial, Butler had a change of heart and dropped his case against her; additionally, he pled guilty to all of his initial charges. The results of the suit are never revealed, though it is presumed to have been dropped when Butler pled guilty.
