Long before he became an established Salyersville, Kentucky attorney at his own law firm in 1991, Grover Arnett was a busy man. He served as the student body president at Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, Kentucky as he was earning his B.A. In Elementary Education, which he received in 1985. He also served as the salutatorian at graduation that year. Soon after that, he earned a Juris Doctor at Northern Kentucky University's Salmon P. Chase College of Law and he began practicing law in 1989 and had his own firm by 1991.
Over nearly a quarter-century, Grover Arnett has built an excellent reputation for himself and his firm. Between 1994 and 1999, he was Magoffin County Attorney, where he developed a reputation as an exceptional attorney, with a 95 percent conviction rate for DUI offenses, and as part of the team that engineered the largest drug conviction in the county's history.
