Abstract: Consider the Poisson equation on a convex polygonal domain and the finite element method of degree $ m\geq 1$ associated with a family of graded meshes for possible singular solutions. We prove the stability of the Ritz projection onto the finite element space in $ W^1_p$, $ 1<p\leq \infty $. Consequently, we obtain finite element error estimates in $ W^1_p$ for $ 1<p\leq \infty $ and in $ L^p$ for $ 1<p<\infty $. The key to the analysis is the use of the ``index engineering'' methodology in modified Kondrat$ '$ev weighted spaces. We also mention possible extensions and applications of these results.
