Review Jonathan Griffith

About Me

I'm a Chico California Criminal Defense attorney. I strive to provide a high degree of personal service and expertise to each of my valued clients. In the rare moments that I'm not working on a client's case or spending time with my family I've been known to go trout fishing in the feather river for fun.
