After over a decade of legal, administrative, and project management experience covering a wide array of areas of practice and working for employers ranging in size from sole practitioners to fortune 500 corporations, Mrs. Griffin decided she wanted to go into practice with her husband, Darrell.

Leaving the “corporate rat race” behind, she wanted to focus on serving the community in Stockton that became her home at seventeen. Mrs. Griffin grew up as a juvenile dependent of the Court and through her own lived experiences, wanted to become a change agent within the system.  She now sits on the Dependency Panel of San Joaquin County, representing children and parents who are going through the CPS court process.

She also sits on the Board of Directors and the Program oversight and Planning Committee for Edgewood Children’s Center, one of the homes that she was once a resident of, as well as the Board of Directors for Creative Child Care, Inc. a Stockton based non-profit dedicated to serving the children and families of San Joaquin.
