GEORGE BYRON GRIFFITHS LAW, PLLC was established in 2016 to provide a client-centered approach to trust and estate law. As a boutique firm, we value each individual client relationship and are not beholden to the requirements imposed by the larger law firm model.
Its founder, George Byron (Geordie) Griffiths, is an Edina native and earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Saint John's University in Collegeville, MN. He intended to pursue clinical and counseling psychology, but an elective course during his senior year -- photography -- diverted his course. After graduation, Geordie spent 3 years working in Special Education assisting children with moderate to severe mental and physical disabilities. Afterwards, he began a photography apprenticeship with People Magazine photographer Keri Pickett, working with her for 2 years before establishing his own commercial photography business in 1999.
As a professional photographer, Geordie's client list included The Guthrie Theater, Theater Latté Da, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Park Nicollet Foundation, Brookfield Properties, University of Northwestern-St. Paul, RSVP Vacations, and others. He continues to photograph stage performances for local twin cities theaters and photographs weddings and family portraits.
Geordie brings to the practice a strong desire to help clients establish a legacy for their families, through individualized services tailored to meet the client's needs.
Finding the right attorney to entrust with your legal needs is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer a free one-hour consultation to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and the best way to achieve the results you desire.
