About Us

Our firm was founded in 1945 by the late Lyman Griswold and Roger Walch.  Today, our practice focuses on getting the best results for each individual client through practical and understandable advice.  Although we are big enough to handle any need our clients may have, we are not a firm which will treat you as a billing number, but instead, we strive to provide our clients with the best service possible which includes quick and responsive communication from any one of our twelve attorneys or our twenty paraprofessionals.
