In 1978, Steven Nassau started a law firm with Frank Borowy as Nassau and Borowy. In 1982, David Griffith joined the firm, followed by Amelia Antoinetti in 1983. Attorney Nassau has now retired. In 1985, the firm moved to 66 Cedar Street under the name Nassau, Borowy and Griffith. In 2006, David Griffith and John Kelly, a longtime resident of Newington, created a successor firm to serve the area. John Kelly had practiced outside of Newington, but within the greater Hartford area, and had served on the Newington Town Council for ten years. While on the Town Council, John Kelly helped Newington revitalize and renew the downtown area, keeping a keen eye on the legal affairs involved in that process. David Griffith and John Kelly's strong respect for each other and focus on client communication made the partnership a natural. They formed Griffith and Kelly, LLC, in that year as a firm with a focus on the greater Hartford community and to continue growing the practice.
