Richard E. Griffith practices in all areas of family law including divorce, child custody, support issues, and adoption. Griffith has been in private practice for more than 15 years and prides himself on assisting clients through highly emotional issues involved in custody and divorce proceedings. He strives as an attorney and as a person to listen to clients, answer questions and concerns in plain English, and to be honest, courteous, and respectful.
“Our goal is to help our clients understand their rights and responsibilities, and resolve problems by using the legal system when needed,” he said. “Most disagreements can be resolved through negotiation, compromise, or mediation. When they cannot I stand ready to zealously promote my clients’ interests before a judge, jury or arbitrator.”
Griffith was born and raised in Shreveport. He graduated magna cum laude in 1997 with degrees in Political Science and History from Ouachita Baptist University. Griffith earned his law degree in 2000 at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University.
