Attorney Griggs was an excellent source of information for me and my grandson who experience bullying and sustained a really ugly bruise on his upper arm while at school at liberty point elementary school in union city ga. An appointment was made for my grandson and I to go and talk with Attorney Griggs and to show the ugly bruise he sustained. My 5 year old grandson felt comfortable and confident to tell Attorney Griggs what happened to him while at school. Attorney guided us in the right direction. He gave us case law and court experiences that helped me to know the steps to take to address this matter which the principal at liberty point elementary seemingly wanted to shove under the rug. But after following the direction of Attorney Griggs there was NO way for the school to ignore the problem of bullying with my grandson. They had to acknowledge the harm done to my grandson and they had to answer to the office of department of Education for the state of Georgia about this young man. So I want to say THANK YOU Attorney Griggs for the wonderful assistance you provided me and my grandson. Thank you for staying with us on this matter until resolution was reached. I appreciate you and the wisdom of your staff for your help at a very stressful time for me concerning the harm that came to my grandson while he was at his school. God Bless and continually guide your practice to excellence in your field. In Jesus name, amen!

Mr. Griggs is simply the best advocate I have have seen and used. He really cares for his clients and the outcome of their cases. I consider him the best attorney I know and I have used him numerous times for many different kinds of cases. If you need the best attorney in Atlanta, call Mr. Griggs...

I went into Mr. Griggs's office for a consultation on a legal matter. I found him online and called him without prior knowledge of his ability as a attorney. After the consultation, I found him to be a great lawyer with detailed knowledge of the law. Even though, I did not hire Mr. Griggs because I did not actually have a case, I will keep him as the family lawyer because I was so impressed with his ability as an attorney.
If you are searching online as I was for a good attorney, give Attorney Griggs a call and you will be as impressed as I was.
