Jeff lost his wife, house, law practice, law license and even his freedom when he hit rock bottom after more than a decade of prescription opioid addiction. But his road to recovery led to a path filled with redemption and a future he could never have imagined.
Jeffrey D. Grant, Esq…After an addiction to prescription opioids and serving almost 14 months in Federal prison (2006 – 07) for a white collar crime he committed in 2001 when he was a lawyer, Jeff Grant started his own reentry. He earned a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, majoring in Social Ethics. After graduating, Jeff was called to serve at an inner city church in Bridgeport, CT as Associate Minister and Director of Prison Ministries. He then co-founded Progressive Prison Ministries, Inc. (Greenwich, CT), the world’s first ministry devoted to serving people prosecuted for white collar crimes and their families. In May 2021, Jeff’s law license was reinstated by the NY Supreme Court. In August 2022, Jeff celebrated 20 years of continuous sobriety.
