The Three Griffins family is saddened by the tragic loss of four very talented attorneys that we shared a special relationship.

Eric Peterson was a well-known and highly respected defense attorney. Eric founded Peterson Bernard in 1981 where he devoted his full-time effort to the practice of insurance defense law. He was quick with a smile, and his charm filled every room he ever entered.

Matthew Fiorello was equally charming: young and multi-talented, whether he was in the courtroom or as the lead singer in his band. He dedicated his practice to the defense of individuals and businesses since graduating from Nova Southeastern Law School in 2008. Matt was an incredible talent with accomplishments beyond his years.

Heather Bridwell was an accomplished attorney that regularly volunteered in the legal and local community. Edwin Mortell III was also a leader. He was an active participant in many issues of concern to the local civic and business areas.

These lost lives were very respected professionals with beautiful hearts. All four will be remembered forever by the Three Griffins family. Our sincerest condolences go to their respective families and our friends at Peterson Bernard.
