Kevin Griffin


An adjunct professor at Vermont Law School since 1986, Kevin Griffin teaches Criminal Law Clinic and Trial Practice. He is a founder and partner of Griffin, Marsicovetere & Wilkes P.C., in White River Junction, Vermont. Following the completion of his clerkship to Justice William Hill of the Vermont Supreme Court, he began working as an associate at Welch, Graham and Manby in the fall of 1983, with a focus on criminal defense and family law. He became a partner at that firm in 1986 and remained in that partnership until he established the Griffin, Marsicovetere & Wilkes firm in March 1993. His practice continues to focus on criminal defense, family law, and some civil litigation. An important portion of his practice is linked to providing criminal defense to those individuals accused of life-sentence crimes, such as murder, aggravated sexual assault, and kidnapping. As a result of their contractual relationship with the Defender General's office, he has handled multiple, high-profile murder cases throughout the state. Griffin also serves annually as an instructor for the Defender General's Office in its Mini Trial Practice Program.
