    I have known and worked with Bob on aviation litigation matters, and I can proudly say that he is one of the most professional, diligent and honest individuals I have ever come across in my 14 years of legal practice. He places his clients first and foremost, and is the model representative of an attorney always zealously and thoroughly advocating on behalf of his clients.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Bob Griscom for a bit over 20 years. I am also an aviation attorney, but when I have questions, it is usually Bob to whom I go with them. He is one of the most knowledgeable aviation litigators and pilots I know and is unfailingly helpful, responsive and blessed with an impressive 'insider knowledge', by virtue of his former employ with the FAA that is incomparable. He has been very helpful to me on numerous occaisions. I recommend Bob without reservation.
