When questions of the paternity of a child arise the guidance of an experienced lawyer may be helpful in limiting the emotional strain and frustration that you feel while searching for answers. The proper legal assistance can also speed the process along, allowing you to move forward with your life with the factual answers you so desperately desire.

At the law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., we understand the anxiety and confusion often associated with paternity disputes.

With more than 40 years of combined experience, our Crestview paternity attorneys have the skill and knowledge needed to help you seek the paternity answers you are rightfully entitled to.

We Provide Answers, Not Judgment
