Mr. Griffith has extensive experience in traditional divorce proceedings as well as mediation. Working on divorces in and out of the courtroom showed him the toll that family court takes on families.

Drawing on his background in mediation and family therapy, Mr. Griffith helped create the rigorous, transparent, data-driven process for divorce that provides spouses a constructive framework to reach mutual decisions on matters attending the end of their marriage, saving time, money and distress for the parties involved – as well as their children.
