Richard C. Griesinger is among the most experienced divorce attorneys in Pinellas County. Since 1985, he has provided representation of divorce clients in North Pinellas (i.e., Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, and Dunedin). His practice is limited exclusively to divorce law. His typical cases involve contested, and often complex, issues of custody, alimony, and equitable distribution. Mr. Griesinger graduated from Stetson College of Law in Pinellas County in 1977, then served as Clearwater Asst. City Attorney until he began private practice in North Pinellas in 1985. He is a member in good standing of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association and the Clearwater Bar Association.
Mr. Griesinger believes that divorce lawyers, above all else, must be expert problem solvers. He, therefore, takes pride in his research ability, case analytical skills, and straight forward approach with clients. Judges, not juries, hear divorce cases. Because judges do not want emotion brought in their courtrooms, even in cases involving children, Mr. Griesinger knows a divorce attorney should remove as much emotion as possible in the courtroom. He understands that the events leading up to a divorce lawsuit can turn lives upside down at home and at work, and strives to provide calm and reasoned advice to clients.
The way that Mr. Griesinger discusses the facts and law with a client will usually be different from the way he presents them to the judge and opposing attorney. An experienced divorce lawyer will play devils advocate to anticipate as many opposing arguments as possible. But Mr. Griesinger will never enter a courtroom in a defensive mode. If a client asks his opinion of the case or a specific issue, he will tell it like he sees it and give a percentage of probability.
