Phil Griffith is a self-proclaimed history nerd who loves to unravel the often complex chain of property ownership to give his clients clear title to mineral rights in the Appalachian Basin. Rarely does someone get to match their personal passion with their career, but Phil does just that as he helps clients solve mineral title questions and protect their businesses. 

Phil writes and reviews mineral title opinions, is involved in division order title opinions, and works with curative services to resolve title defects. 

In addition to Phil's mineral title practice, he also has a depth of knowledge in residential property law and assists clients who are buying, selling, or refinancing residential real estate.

Clients who work with Phil know that he doesn't take himself too seriously, that he invests in making relationships fun, and, most importantly, that he understands the value of clear title to their success.
