The Griffith Law Group is a full-service litigation firm offering our clients representation in disputes concerning all areas of the law.
We are trial lawyers first; however, our experience in the courtroom often lends itself to delivering high quality representation in advising and representing clients in arbitrations, mediations, and insurance coverage matters.
South Texas really is like a whole other country from its unique climate to its multicultural influences. South Texas has gained a reputation for being a tough venue for defense litigants. The counties located in deep South Texas tend to be liberal and plaintiff-oriented which, in-turn, is reflected in the jury pool. Our firm focuses its practice in South Texas. It does not shy away from providing “big city” representation in South Texas’ distinct and challenging legal arena.
Most of the firm’s lawyers were either born and raised in South Texas or have been practicing law here for decades. This allows our firm to provide you with quality legal representation with hometown familiarity. So when you see yourself in need of representation in our corner of Texas, you can be assured that we are distinctively situated to advise and represent you on the proper legal course of action in South Texas.
