Trust this man with your life!
My divorce got ugly and I did some things that I wasn't proud of...but Mr. John E. Griswold helped me through it. He was a trusted attorney and his advice helped me through the worst of it.

Prince of a guy!
Mr. Griswold is not only a good lawyer but a nice person. In my speeding case he reviewed all the information and actually met me on the road where I got the ticket. He did not get the case dismissed but he got it reduced. He did a good job.

LAWYER
He has been my company lawyer for over thirty years. No matter what the legal problem, I could always count on him to do his very best. Whether it was an employee issue or a contract problem he was always there and I could count on him.

GREAT LAWYER
I was so concerned about my estate. This is my second marriage and I have three grown children. My husband also has two children. I was a difficult situation. Mr. Griswold explained how we could both do wills and leave property to each other and also leave property to our respective children. It was a great relief to both my husband and I and our children. He is both a good lawyer and an very nice person.

does not speak Chinese
FYI...He does not speak Chinese. This lawyer was advertised online as speaking Mandarin Chinese which I needed for my grandmother's will..but he does not. He was very helpful, though. He was able to recommend another attorney in the area for me.
