Divorce • Child Custody • Adoptions • Spousal Support

Shreveport native Richard E. Griffith practices in all areas of family law including adoption, child custody, and divorce. Griffith has been in private practice for 17 years and prides himself on assisting clients through highly emotional issues involved in custody and divorce proceedings. Griffith’s goal is to help clients understand their rights and responsibilities, and resolve problems by using the legal system. 

“You want to look for a lawyer that you trust to give you the whole picture and promote your best interest both inside and out of the courtroom,” said Griffith, who graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 1997 and earned his law degree in 2000 from LSU. 

“I particularly enjoy doing adoptions,” said Griffith who was adopted at birth. “I feel a personal connection to all my adoption clients and love joining together families.”

Griffith is a member of the American Bar Association, Louisiana Bar Association, and Shreveport Bar Association. He is also an Eagle Scout and an active member of Broadmoor Baptist Church.
