FRIENDSWOOD, Texas -- Veteran Galveston County Prosecutor Bret Griffin has announced that he is a candidate for Galveston County 212th Judicial District Court.  Griffin, 43, has served as an assistant prosecutor for 6 years before leaving Galveston County District Attorney’s office to open his private law firm in Friendswood, Texas.
 
In announcing his decision to run Griffin said, “I have dedicated my career to protecting our families and protecting our communities.  As a district court judge, I will continue to serve the people of our county.  I believe that my unique combination of experience both inside and outside the courtroom makes me the best qualified candidate for this position.  I look forward to the opportunity to serve our citizens fairly and intelligently, putting my experience to work for our communities.”
 
Seeking to fill the seat currently held by Judge Susan Criss, Griffin noted that Galveston County residents deserve safer streets and stronger communities.  “Anyone seeking to fill Judge Criss’ seat has to be qualified to hear any type of case that would come before the court.  My combination of experience both inside and outside the courtroom has prepared me for that challenge.”
 
Currently practicing in Friendswood, Griffin has successfully prosecuted some of the most notorious crimes in Galveston County.  These include the murders of La Marque resident, Ernest Joiner and the stabbing murder of Boliver Pennisula resident, David Gilbert. Griffin also was the prosecuting attorney that put away Child Pornographer, Michael Krause.  Additionally, Griffin prosecuted Charles Lynch of Texas City for drug dealing. “From minor criminal charges to murder cases, I’ve seen it all and at some point, have prosecuted or represented the families.” stated Griffin.
 
Griffin is a graduate of Clear Lake High School, University of St. Thomas and University of Tulsa School of Law.
 
Griffin is a lifetime Republican, casting his first vote for the Bush/Quayle ticket in 1988 at the age of 18. He wanted to vote for Ronald Reagan, but sadly he could not. Griffin has a strong record of service to children and families - particularly for those that have been subject to extreme poverty and abuse.  Bret's commitment to justice in a court of law stems from his firm resolve that families and children deserve a safe and stable environment as their foundation for daily life.
 
Griffin and his wife Peree have been married for almost 18 years.  They volunteer their time with Boys and Girls Club, Way Station Charities, and Project Cure.  The Griffins have two children, John Paul and Jordan. They live in Friendswood, where Peree is a co-owner of Dunn Bros. Coffee House.
