      From Our Clients

      I am in charge of a diverse group of real estate holdings and I am the managing member of a number of limited liability companies with investors on both the east and west coasts and many areas in between. We own and/or manage apartment complexes, condominiums, commercial and single-family residential real estate. I have used Griffith Law Offices for almost all of my real estate, receivership, and civil litigation issues for the past 5 years.  They are not only knowledgeable but they are fast and efficient.
