THE LAST BAD DECISION SLIPPED OUT OF HIM AS EASILY AS WATER OVER A FALLS. Jeff Grant (https://greenwichmag.com/features/the-redemption-of-jeff-grant/)

The Locked up Living Podcast

This is a moving story which gives an account of a man's travel from a position of trust and respect to drug use, criminality and prison. Through self reflection and mentoring Jeff remade his life to make a positive contribution for the benefit of others. For more than 20 years, Jeff served as managing attorney of a 20+ employee law firm headquartered in New York City representing family-owned and closely-held businesses and their owners.  We invited Jeff onto the podcast after reading his story in New Yorker. In 2001, after an addiction to prescription opioids he committed a white collar crime and served almost fourteen months in a Federal prison over the course of 2006/07. When Jeff left prison, he started his own re-entry by earning a Master of Divinity majoring in Social Ethics. After graduating from divinity school, 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 serving the white collar justice community.   On May 5, 2021, Jeff’s law license was reinstated by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. He is once again in private practice and is committed to using his legal expertise and life experience to benefit others.

Episode 37: Interview with Jeff Grant: Navigating White Collar Crime & The Aftermath

The Happy Self® Podcast with Tracy Fox

Jeff is an ordained minister with over three decades of experience in crisis management, business, law (former), reentry, recovery (clean & sober 18+ years), and executive & religious leadership. He works with people prosecuted for white collar crimes (and their families) who want to come out of isolation and join a supportive community that will help them navigate their journeys through the criminal justice system – to new ethical, productive, joyful lives on the other side of their issues. As an ordained minister, conversations and communications between Jeff and those he serves fall under state clergy privilege laws. This is one reason that attorneys often allow and encourage their clients to maintain relationships with Jeff while in active prosecution or litigation situations. Not a prison consultant; not a prison coach. Sometimes referred to in the press as “The Minister to Hedge Funders,” he regularly uses his experience and background to guide people faithfully forward in their lives, relationships, careers and business opportunities, and to help them from making the kinds of decisions that previously resulted in loss, suffering and shame. After an addiction to prescription opioids and serving almost fourteen months in a Federal prison for a white-collar crime he committed when he was a lawyer, Jeff started his own reentry – earning a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, with a focus in Christian Social Ethics. After graduating from divinity school, Jeff was called to serve at an inner city church in Bridgeport, CT as Associate Minister and Director of Prison Ministries. He, and his wife and partner-in-ministry Lynn Springer, then co-founded Progressive Prison Ministries, Inc. (Greenwich, CT), the world’s first ministry serving the white collar justice/economy exiled community.
