Meet Chuck Grzanka, Cycling Lawyer

If you’ve spent time riding bikes in Michigan, you probably have already met Chuck. He’s a fixture at road, triathlon, gravel, and mountain bike races all over the Midwest and is a supporter of landmark events like the Barry-Roubaix and Iceman Cometh Challenge. From the biggest races to the most laid-back group rides, Chuck understands the simple pleasure of pedaling a bike because it’s a sport he’s had a passion for over decades of enjoyment.

Off the bike, Chuck is an outspoken cycling advocate, often asked to speak across the Midwest on issues of cycling safety, cycling advocacy, and youth cycling. His unique blend of experience in the sport, over 40 years of experience in the legal system, and his sterling reputation as a fair, honest person within the cycling community gives an unmatched position of reputability within the complex work of bike law.

It’s been a long, exciting road for Chuck. A graduate of the University of Michigan, he then went on to receive his law degree from Wayne State Law School. He is a member of the Grand Rapids Bar Association, Michigan Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the Michigan Self Insurers Association. He is past chairman of the Young Lawyers’ Section of the Grand Rapids Bar Association, a member of the Michigan State Bar Association section of Negligence, a member of the American Bar Association Committee on Employer’s Liability, and a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association.

Chuck is the founder and president of the law firm of Grzanka Grit McDonald. He has practiced law for more than 40 years, representing both insurance companies and injured individuals throughout the entire state of Michigan and in numerous other states. Grzanka has bench and jury trial experience in a number of areas including cycling or bicycle crash accident litigation, wrongful death matters, personal injury, medical issues, and product liability.

Mr. Grzanka is a past member of the International Society of Primerus Lawyers and has been regularly selected for admission by the A.M. Best Company for inclusion in its national Directory of Recommended Attorneys. He has also been featured in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers as having received the highest (AV) rating in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory and having been designated as outstanding in his field. In addition to lectures and seminars throughout the United States, Chuck has also lectured in Asia on issues of product liability and litigation.
