  5. Juvenile law

I started practicing in criminal defense in Calaveras county as a juvenile and dependency defense.  My work was primarily with juvenile defendants and helping parents navigate CPS cases.  I moved on to Stanislaus County as a prosecutor.  In my five years as a prosecutor I was promoted twice.  I handled a single department by myself for several years, resolving over a thousand cases.  I conducted several trials when necessary.  I worked in a conflicts calendar meaning each case either had multiple defendants, or multiple cases, or both.  I was then assigned homicides and worked with law enforcement from the first call through the entire case, including issuing the case, preliminary hearing, and trial if necessary.

I then moved into private practice back to defense work after a series of accidents made it impossible to keep pace with my case load in Stanislaus.  I now practice in San Joaquin and Stanislaus.  My work on both sides of a case means I not only have an eye towards defense, but can anticipate how the prosecution is looking at the case.

Brilliant Attorney
I don’t know where to begin. I have spent more than 100,000 on criminal defense attorney’s until I found Mr. Griffin. He is the most amazing attorney I have met. I had a criminal case of assault with a deadly weapon. He took the time from his busy schedule to listen. We reviewed the evidence against together and he gave me the possible outcomes. As a results of his efforts Within 1 week my case got dismissed. Trust me if you are looking for a criminal attorney, do give Mr Griffin an opportunity to represent you and you won’t be disappointed. This review serves a means to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for Mr. Griffin outstanding work.
