About The Law Office of Raoul Graham, PLC
Raoul established the firm in 2004 to litigate against insurance defense firms and corporate interests.
We provide personal attention to our clients, investigate cases prior to filing, and provide you with an assessment of the likelihood of success. We are a plaintiff’s firm, known to be aggressive and creative, but we don’t pretend to know everything.
We have experience developing, prosecuting and arguing complicated civil cases, but unlike other firms we may seek advice from the best lawyers in the nation to pursue long-term litigation against established interests. We write, file, and argue our own appeals.
An attorney by profession, a commercial pilot by training, and an operational intelligence officer by trade, Raoul is a graduate of the University of Toronto, BA (hons.), 1989, and Thomas M. Cooley Law School, JD, Cum Laude, 2003. He was admitted to the Michigan Bar in 2004 and has more than fifteen years of experience as a trial lawyer representing plaintiffs in tort litigation.
Prior to founding the firm, Raoul served as a deputy sheriff, a law clerk for the criminal division of the Department of Justice, Office of the United States Attorney, and an intelligence officer for the operations department of a civilian intelligence agency for which he investigated espionage, sabotage, terrorism, and organized crime.
As part of the firm, Raoul served as a consultant for a British think tank based in Nairobi, for which he monitored the conduct, performance and leadership of regional law enforcement departments in Somalia, researched human trafficking, and performed a comprehensive survey of the security sector in Somaliland.
With his experience identifying and countering corruption in law enforcement and prosecuting fraud, corruption, waste and abuse, in 2017 Raoul was retained to prosecute sexual assault and abuse cases by the law firm which represented one third of survivors in the nationally-recognized Larry Nassar sex abuse litigation and which recovered five hundred million dollars in a settlement with Michigan State University in 2018.
Raoul is a government whistleblower himself.
Having worked for three governments in two countries, he understands the realities of employment in a politicized environment.
Raoul believes in the right of individuals to report wrongdoing without retaliation, because when done properly whistleblowing strengthens democracy.
