The foundation’s mission is to fund the advancement of justice by improving access, education and accountability. Since 1987, the foundation has awarded more than $43 million to various legal-related organizations that work on behalf of the justice community. The foundation is governed by a 13-member board of directors.
“To me, the foundation is not just an arm but the heart of the South Carolina Bar, and I am honored and humbled to lead the way in improving the lives of South Carolinians through the advancement of justice,” Griffeth said.
Griffeth, a shareholder with Collins & Lacy, practices in the Greenville office. His 35-year practice of law has focused on defense trial work, representing employers in employment-related litigation and mediation.
He was the 2011 president of the Greenville Bar Association, secretary/treasurer for the S.C. Bar Foundation board of directors and a member of the House of Delegates for the 13th Judicial Circuit.
