Chris Griffith, Founder and Divorce Mediator at Split Simple joins eHealth Radio and the Family and Relationship Channels. Split Simple is a unique divorce mediation firm with offices in Colorado and Illinois that helps couples navigate divorce with less stress, expense and uncertainty than adversarial courtroom proceedings.

As a Founder of Split Simple, Chris Griffith became the firm’s first attorney-mediator. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wake Forest University, a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from East Carolina University (graduating first in class) and a law degree at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
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.
Split Simple was founded in Colorado and currently has locations in the Denver area and multiple counties. The firm recently opened offices in Chicago and Cook County, Illinois.
