Some of Mr. Griffin's representative successes in this regard have included a $4.9 million settlement in a wrongful death case involving a small plane crash, a $13 million settlement with a group of oil companies that had contaminated water wells and a $4.65 million products liability settlement involving a defective plumbing device. He has prevailed in other types of civil litigation as well, including a $9.3 million jury verdict in a construction dispute based on fraud and breach of contract.
