Excellent advice
I consulted Ms. Griffiths concerning accessing resources for my aging mother. She was extremely helpful and professional in guiding us to the appropriate individuals and agencies. She was tenacious and relentless in researching options for us. Her advice and counsel resulted in our receiving benefits for my mother that we would've not had access to without her expertise. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Litigation Attorney | Sep 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked very closely with Amber on a lawsuit challenging a ballot measure on the grounds that it impaired the contractual rights of public employees. Amber was very friendly and professional throughout the entire case. I found that she was on top of all aspects of the litigation, both large and small, and was very helpful when brainstorming and contemplating strategic decisions during the case."
General practice Attorney | Sep 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Amber and I clerked together for the U.S. Department of Labor - Office of Administrative Law Judges. She was a year ahead of me and in the office next door. As a new clerk I often had questions and Amber always had a patient and thoughtful response. We also worked together on the next year's clerk recruiting and Amber was a great teammate. I know her to be smart, kind, and honest and I strongly recommend her to prospective clients."
Employment and labor Attorney | Sep 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
