Gavel — Law Firm in Washington, DC
Griffith and Wheat PLLC is one of Washington D.C.'s preeminent defense litigation boutiques representing clients in criminal matters, business disputes, and federal employment matters in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies. Our principals are local and nationally recognized trial lawyers who bring more than 40 years of combined experience handling high-stakes complex matters.

Our attorneys are well versed in handling a wide range of criminal defense matters, from white-collar offenses to misdemeanors. Many of our clients are executives, business owners, professionals, and federal employees who have their freedom, reputations, and careers at stake when criminal allegations arise. When representing our clients, we develop defense strategies that not only minimize our client's criminal exposure but also eliminate or minimize the collateral consequences that stem from contact with the criminal justice system.
We assist businesses and organizations with tough legal challenges, including breach of contract, defense of personal injury claims, employment termination disputes, tortious interferences, breach of fiduciary duty, discrimination and other business torts.
Federal employees can face serious and even career-ending administrative actions for conduct that occurred in and out of the workplace. Griffith & Wheat routinely defend federal employees in disciplinary and adverse action appeals before their agencies and at the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
Griffith & Wheat represents government contractors in contract disputes, bid protests, requests for equitable adjustment and contract claims before the Contracts Administration Board and the Court of Federal Claims.
We advise business clients, including non-profits and government contractors, on a myriad of issues, such as risk management; contract drafting and review; negotiating agreements; and employment and benefits issues. We provide timely and useful advice that anticipates potential risks and helps our clients reach their bottom line.
