David Griffith
For the eight years I have worked with David on a variety of legal issues that have arisen from being self-employed, David has always prevailed and made us a winning team. I wouldn't think of calling anyone else for our legal needs.

best lawyer ever
I not only refer David cases, he has represented me and my office. He and Dick Molin are the ONLY lawyers to whom I send personal injury and business cases when clients ask my advice about lawyers outside criminal and dui representation, which is what my office does. There are over 300 lawayers ub Chico most of whom went to the local night law school. Do not hire these "jack of all trade" law firms who claim to be experts in everything or have huge yellow-page and other ads. Do not hire lawyers who add up the number of years lawyers in there office have practiced and claim some "combined" experience or claim after less than 10 years as a lawyer to have been the only lawyer picked as "number one" for a length of time three times longer than they have been a lawyer . I have been a lawyer in Butte County over 40 years and I know almost all the lawyers in the area. Do not go for the bill boards and TV adds and even names scrolled on the back of buses or shopping carts. David and his staff are professionals in every way. Want to know more call me Joe Vandervoort.

Great Lawyer
Dave Griffith is an excellent lawyer. He helped us to get a great settlement in a very difficult case. He was always very straightforward and extremely ethical with us. Dave is a really, really smart person. He comes across as very serious and intimidating. I was always impressed with the quality of his writing in filings and letters to the opposing counsel. I don't anyone could have done a better job for us.
