The structure of our law firm has successfully evolved over many years to become who we are today. Throughout the years of success and growth, the firms’ founders never forgot the roots of their long-time relationship. In 1967, Ronald E. Stewart, Keith S. Humpherys and Richard J. Molin began their working relationship as associates in the well-established law firm of Goldstein, Barceloux & Goldstein.

On June 25, 1979, the long-standing vision of Ron Stewart and Keith Humpherys came to fulfillment. They opened the door for business in their own Chico, CA law firm, with the mutual goal of providing legal services unsurpassed in the Northern California area. In 1992, Richard Molin rejoined his former associates. Throughout the many years of their association and partnership, these men formed a lifetime bond as not only professionals, but friends as well. The strong relationship among the attorneys translates into a healthy atmosphere for the practice of law and the ability to represent the diverse needs of our clients.

In 2010, the firm became Stewart Humpherys Molin & Griffith and continues serving Northern California clients.
