    I have known Richardson "Red" Griswold for 30+ years and can personally attest that this is an attorney you can trust. Not only is he a highly skilled and fierce advocate for his clients, but Mr. Griswold is also a highly respected court appointed trustee for real estate receiverships. If you have a have a real estate or class action case I highly recommend you call Attorney Red Griswold.
