Litigation Attorney | Nov 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Charles for years and he has always been knowledgeable and thorough. He is particularly skilled at reducing complex concepts so that everyone can understand. And he is also well respected and connected across the community."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. While Mr. Griffin is certainly an accomplished civil lawyer, I first met him in his capacity as part-time public defender in Jackson Municipal Court. I was immediately impressed with the tenacious defense he provided to these clients. Even though serving as a public defender, Mr. Griffin provides a level of representation that is far above many "paid" defense lawyers. I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Griffin's work."
Litigation Attorney | Jan 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I am proud to consider myself a mentor of Charles Griffin's. I have known him since law school, and have seen his performance in court and am familiar with his reputation in the legal community. He is justifiably very highly regarded."
