As a litigation attorney, Brian Griffin helps clients assess their exposure and liability and finds the most advantageous and cost-effective solution, whether that means resolving the issue outside of court or preparing for trial. He takes great pride in gathering all the facts and information necessary to tailor his approach to best suit his clients’ needs. Brian is known for being a professional, approachable, and relentless advocate for his clients. He is admitted to practice in all Florida state courts and in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
One of the things Brian loves about his work is exploring new and novel legal issues, and he enjoys the competitive nature of the adversarial legal system. Winning his first trial less than six months into his career was a particularly memorable experience for Brian, as it was a case where his client was falsely accused of multiple crimes, which had turned his life upside down. Getting not-guilty verdicts on all counts vindicated his client in the end.
Brian’s previous experience includes serving as an Assistant Public Defender for the 20th Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s Office, as well as judicial internships and externships with the Federal Public Defender for the Eastern District of North Carolina in Raleigh, the Mecklenburg County Public Defender’s Office in Charlotte, and the Honorable John J. McConnell, Jr. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island.
Originally from North Carolina, Brian currently lives in Fort Myers. As a proud UNC Tar Heel football and basketball fan, he enjoys returning to Chapel Hill for games whenever possible.
