Current Focus

Grifan has enjoyed the opportunity to meet with clients, learn their stories, and serve their needs often amid a difficult time. She considers it an honor to have represented many clients over extended periods of time and through various phases of life and need.  As of May 2024, she has decided to wind up her civil practice of law with the firm for the time being. She is excited to be focusing her time and energy on her two young daughters at this busy and critical phase of life. The firm sent a letter to all past and current clients informing them of this development in early April of 2024. In the event your letter did not make it to your mailbox, we apologize  — best efforts were made to reach all clients based on the information provided.
