MICHAEL J. GRIFFIN – Through his training and gifts as an attorney, Mr. Griffin has established a place for himself in general practice at Springfield, where he is held in esteem for his thoroughgoing qualities as a counsellor, and in the courts. He is the son of James J. Griffin, a steam fitter, who was born in Ireland in 1848, and died March 25, 1924, and Catherine T (Osborne) Griffin, who was born in Ireland in 1853.

Michael J. Griffin was born August 14, 1888, in Springfield, where he attended the public and high schools. He studied law at home, and was admitted to the Massachusetts bar May 8, 1922, establishing his practice in Springfield that year in his own name. A Republican in politics, his vote is given in that party’s favor. His fraternal affiliations are with the Knights of Columbus; the Catholic Order of Foresters; and the Hampden County Bar Association; and he is a communicant of the Roman Catholic Church.
