Shreveport native Richard E. Griffith practices in all areas of family law including adoption, child custody, community property, divorce, and support issues. He has been in private practice for more than 20 years and prides himself on assisting clients through highly emotional issues involved in custody and divorce proceedings. “You want a lawyer you can trust will give you the whole picture and promote your best interest both inside and out of the courtroom,” said Richard, who earned his law degree from LSU in 2000. Richard especially loves doing adoptions. Having been adopted at birth by two wonderful parents, he feels a personal connection with his adoption clients. There is nothing more rewarding than joining families together in a bond of love. It is one of the few times everyone leaves the courtroom happy.”
