With more than 25 years of experience and extensive knowledge in family law, Wade is highly regarded by his clients for his strategic thinking, compassion, and unwavering dedication to their interests.

A Navy veteran and former law firm owner, Wade is highly respected in the North Texas legal community and has built a reputation for tenaciously advocating for his clients while upholding the highest level of professionalism and integrity.

In addition to being a skilled litigator, Wade is also a certified family law mediator and highly experienced in alternate dispute resolution methods.

Beyond the courtroom, Wade’s background and personal life reflect his hard work and dedication. After graduating from A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. During his tenure, he served aboard the USS Tarawa and in Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf. After the military, he obtained a criminal justice degree from Sam Houston State University and a law degree from Texas Tech University School of Law.

His ambition led him to North Texas, where he worked in the Child Support Division of the Attorney General’s Office for many years. In 2010, he opened his own family law practice, The Griffin Firm, in Keller, where he helped countless families successfully navigate some of the most challenging times of their lives.

Today, as a partner at Varghese Summersett Family Law Group, Wade continues to provide exceptional legal representation to clients in the North Texas area. When he is not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Sarah, who is a legal assistant at Varghese Summersett, and their three children and four grandchildren.
