Choosing the right attorney to represent you in a family law matter is not a simple task. While there are a number to choose from, not all are equal. You need someone who will competently represent you in your situation no matter the severity.
I consider myself blessed to have found Keiko a few years ago. My situation was one I hope neither you nor anyone you know must endure. In short, it involved potentially losing the most precious person in my life…my only son. Through challenging odds, our relationship was preserved and Keiko was much to thank for that. — Client testimonial by Sterling W., June 16, 2013 (continued below)
Make no mistake: The Law Office of Keiko Griffin, PLLC is a strong advocate for mothers, fathers and children. This Web page aims to highlight concerns that many fathers in particular bring to the attention of our family law attorney:
- Custody: Mothers often ask for full custody or sole custody, and fathers who want to stay involved with their children object to such a request. They receive personalized counsel and representation suitable to their unique circumstances at the Law Office of Keiko Griffin, PLLC.
- Paternity: When a father has reason to question whether a child is actually his before agreeing to child custody and child support arrangements, he may request DNA testing. Waiting too long to bring up this issue may mean that it is too late down the road to reverse child support orders, regardless of biological parentage.
- Stepparent adoption : Sometimes our client is a biological father wishing to contest or block a stepparent adoption. In other cases, our client is a stepfather requesting legal acknowledgment of his role in a child's life through adoption. We advocate for each client taking into account factors unique to each family's circumstances.
- Modifications: Fathers often request more contact with their children or seek legal counsel when relocation becomes necessary for career reasons.
- Relocation and requests for geographic restrictions: Fathers may be the parents who see children on a visitation schedule. In such cases, they have much to lose when the mother, as primary custodial parent, seeks to relocate a child out of state or across the state.
- Military service and child custody: Fathers often need help getting court orders that take into account their changing circumstances, including long-term deployments. They naturally desire to have adequate time with their children when they come back home.

Testimonial by Sterling W., continued:
Upon returning my son to his mother after Christmas this past year, I was served yet again. This time in an effort to have her residency restriction lifted so she could move with him out of state. Based on my previous experience, I called her office immediately. Yet again, Keiko is representing us well in the matter. While not over, I have confidence that I'm being represented the best I can .
I'm a business professional living in Georgetown. I know a few things about loss and my only son means the world to me and I can tell you this…I don't know another attorney I would entrust more when it comes to family law than Keiko Griffin. She isn't the most expensive, but she is a University of Texas Law School grad which says a lot and she will serve you well.
