About me

After graduating from law school in 2002, I went to work for an international corporation, managing contacts with some of the largest law firms in Silicon Valley.  I later transitioned to a small private practice in Sacramento where I gained valuable experience in several areas of the law before starting The Griffin Law Firm and focusing primarily on bankruptcy.  My goal in these tough economic times has been helping consumers get a fresh start so they can get back on their feet.
