Professional and Compassionate If you are familiar with Family Law then you know that the process is traumatic, frustrating and stressful. Mr. Griffin listened to my concerns, compiled and understood the facts and communicated the best plan of action that would result in the best situation for my kids as well as myself. There is nobody I'd rather have by my side advocating for me and my boys.

I have worked in both criminal defense and prosecution. I have handled thousands of cases to resolution. Almost all cases can be resolved in an efficient manner, but when trial is required I am not afraid to go to trial for my clients to present the best arguments for them and get them the best results.

Part of any case is preparation and I not only read every document, watch every video, but keep my files organized and up to date to make sure I am ready for the case when it is called. I believe in being on time to court, and trying to get my clients cases called as quickly as possible to save them time and money in waiting around for cases to be called.

Every case is unique, even when a case has the same charges, or multiple defendants, each person has a unique part of that case. I listen carefully to every client and I never view a question as something I have already answered, but listen carefully and not only answer the questions, but look to make sure I understand why the client is asking the question, so I can anticipate their needs.

Professional Experience
Griffin Legal Defense
- Current
I opened my own practice after working for several years as a prosecutor in Stanislaus County and a public defender in Calaveras County. I handled dependency and juvenile cases in Calaveras and was a conflict attorney as a prosecutor handling several thousand cases including homicide cases. I thoroughly review a case and the existing statute and relevant case law on each case to make sure my clients are fully represented.

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. I did 3 police complains about a neighbor hassling me about my house the last one I asked them to keep their distance
A: You would need to provide a bit more information.

Are you asking if you can get in trouble for calling 911 too many times?

Are you asking if it can cause issues with the neighbor?

Hard to answer your question without more information.
Q. Can California cops in placer County arrest and impound a vehicle on a suspended license
A: As Mr. Fazzi said, yes they can. You are driving without a valid license. There are many other ways they could have handled the situation, like leaving the car locked, or having another licensed person move the car. However, they are not required to do so.
Q. Would this be considered a co conspirator?
A: Based on your fact pattern alone, yes John can face conspiracy charges. A conspiracy takes two or more people, to commit a crime, and to have taken any steps to further that crime. Selling the address, especially understanding Jack is intending to assault Kyle, is a step in furtherance of the crime.

However, depending on the particular court, county, etc, conspiracy is not the easiest to prove up and get a jury to understand. This would also require that a) Jack carried through and assaulted Kyle, and b) during the investigation it was revealed John sold the address, and c) the prosecution can prove that happened.
