Quick Legal Help

The Top 2019 Criminal Defense Lawyer in Rhode Island


September 2018: Client charged with DUI by the Rhode Island State Police. Attorney Griffin argues successfully to the court that a key element of the offense, in this case the lack of operation of the vehicle was lacking. The case was dismissed and the matter was swiftly expunged from the client’s BCI.

Expungement Success

August 2018: After a client’s expungement was initially objected to and denied, Attorney Griffin was hired to attempt to remedy the situation. Attorney Griffin uncovered the actual court file from the decades old case. He refiled the motion based upon his findings. The State withdrew its objection and the expungement was completed.

Domestic Assault – DISMISSED

May 2018: A client facing serious domestic assault charges that jeopardized the client’s ability to graduate from college hired Dan to assist him.  Based upon his years of experience as a domestic violence prosecutor, Dan immediately saw the problems the State would face in proving its case.  Sure enough, with the proper research and pressing of motions the matter was dismissed and set for removal from the client’s record and cleared him to graduate.

$100,000 Cash Settlement

April 2018: A long time client of Dan’s was injured by a hit and run driver.  Left with serious injuries and an inability to work, Dan helped coordinate with police in their search for the responsible party.  He was able to convince the insurance company to settle quickly, even before the client was done treating for the maximum policy limits.  Dan continues to fight and investigate for the client to truly see that justice is done.

Possession of 1lb of Marijuana -DISMISSED

April 2018: Client was pulled over and car illegally searched. K9 units located well over 1lb of marijuana in the trunk.  Client’s car was seized and wanted by police for its high worth on the auction market.  The client was also facing serious jail time.  Dan Griffin challenged the search from day 1.  After months of hearings and arraignments, all charges were ultimately dismissed and the client’s car returned to her.
