Aaron M. Griffin
The precision of a scientist. The eloquence of an advocate. The focus of an athlete. Aaron brings a unique combination of skills to our firm. With a background in public health, government and chemistry, he is particularly well-suited for areas of litigation involving science and medicine. He chose the practice of law because it enables him to contribute to the greater good of the community.
A long-distance cyclist, Aaron says his client approach is similar to the principles of sports psychology: prepare, focus, and visualize the finish line. Holding himself to a “championship standard”, he works tirelessly on his clients’ behalf. In addition to working as an Assistant Attorney General of New York State, he has been a lecturer on public health law issues and a legal research analyst. In New York State and federal courts, he has also worked on cases involving torts and administrative law – experience that serves him well in the areas of insurance defense and medical malpractice.
Aaron successfully defended New York State's Department of Health, Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, and Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in many actions, including those for medical malpractice and medical negligence. In joining our firm, he brings with him these years of experience and his study of public health law, biology, and chemistry to navigate the nexus between the practices of law and medicine.
For himself and for his clients, Aaron accomplishes whatever he sets his mind to. He has an impressive number of achievements so far, and we’re pleased that our clients receive the benefit of his broad-based experience.
