Jack Griffeth is an attorney at Roe Cassidy Coates & Price PA.  He began his legal career in 1976 as a workers comp and insurance defense litigator.   In 1998, Jack completed his training to become a certified mediator in South Carolina.  Thereafter, he and several attorneys from the Greenville, South Carolina area designed a mediation model for the county which was later adopted as the statewide procedure.  He has conducted over 1000 mediations covering a variety of legal issues using his extensive knowledge of the law and diplomatic skills.  As Jack says, trusting in the process is the key, because "mediation is not for quitters."

In 1976, Duke University created the Charles Murphy Award for Jack, in recognition of his unique collegial contributions to the Duke Law School community.  He is also the 2008 recipient of the Greenville Bar's most prestigious honor, the Tommy Thomason Award.
