   Chris Griswold – Lead Attorney/Owner & Broker Associate


Have you ever wondered how nice it would be if someone were to combine a successful, proven, diverse, commercial business, estate planning and real estate law firm with a well-backed real estate company – that helps its clients also buy, sell and lease residential, commercial & recreational properties? If so, you’re thinking of us!

Here at Chris Griswold P.C., we routinely help our clients all the way from their estate planning phase, to their entity formation phase, to property acquisition phase, to the operations and/or leasing phase – then all the way to ultimately selling it and their entity dissolution phase. All this is done seamlessly with the help of David Chapman, Managing Broker & Owner of Realty1 in Edmond (405-202-2676) – Chris Griswold’s broker, long time client, friend, mentor and UCO college professor colleague.

Just take a look at all the services we offer, in the different areas, on the “About The Firm” tab.”

Chris Griswold and his team have practiced commercial real estate, commercial business, intellectual property law,  estate planning, commercial & residential real estate, tax, indian, and many other areas of law.  Served as in-house, corporate counsel for Pier One Imports and J.C. Penney Corporation, as well as many other organizations. After spending a majority of his career performing major, commercial transactional work, he has extensive experience in communicating with large corporations and their boards and officers to achieve their desired results.

Chris is a father, attorney, professor, mentor, book author (of 4 different genres of books), investor, speaker, guest columnist, social activist, frequent volunteer and the writer of a monthly newsletter which has roughly 30,000 organically grown subscribers.

Chris is a Professor who teaches real estate and business courses at the University of Central Oklahoma and stays closely connected to his students – even after they graduate (oftentimes, helping them get their first jobs by promoting them on his social media).

Currently practices in many States transactionally, and is licensed in both Texas and Oklahoma by examination in the year 2000.

A proud graduate from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas and obtained his B.B.A. in 1996. Then he attended the Oklahoma University College of Law in Norman, Oklahoma and obtained his Juris Doctor in 1999.
