Attorney Beverly M. Griffor was first licensed in the State of Michigan and has since become involved in litigation and research nationwide. She diligently represents the interests of her clients and personally works with each and every one.
Beverly graduated from the University of Michigan with a double majored Bachelors degree in Psychology and Sociology with a minor in Philosophy. In each of her majors, Beverly sub-concentrated in both Criminology and Social Inequality. She also graduated as a member of honor societies in all three of her concentrations.
Beverly received her Juris Doctor from Ave Maria School of Law after concentrating her studies on trial practice and procedure. Immediately after sitting for the Bar Exam, Beverly began working as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for the County of Jackson. She held this until she chose to begin her entry into private practice.
As a private attorney, Beverly has successfully represented clients in criminal and civil trials, negotiated business transactions, helped troubled families, and advised clients in a variety of related matters. She prides herself in her professional service and her ability to get clients the best results possible in their unique situations.
Beverly handles family law, criminal law, and other litigation matters. Much of her work focuses on the application of scientific research in the courtroom. This blending of law and science is very helpful in cases where there are custody disputes involving alienation, false allegations to evaluate, or expert opinions and testimony.
Beverly continues to be involved in continuing legal education to keep abreast of the latest legal new and theories. In addition to her legal education, Beverly is a faculty member at Concordia University and in the Criminal Justice Department of Jackson College. Beverly is also pursuing her PhD in Psychology.
