We have worked with GriffinEstep for over 15 years and they have always provided top notch service to our company. Hank and his team are always responsive to whatever our needs may be and worked to find us the best coverage within our budget. It is pleasure to work with them.

We've been utilizing the Griffin Estep group for years. Hank has been our primary point of contact and goes above and beyond for us. His responses are always prompt and informative. If he doesn't know, he knows exactly who to connect us with. The addition of Dane Scalise as general counsel has been tremendously helpful to our company as well. There are always questions that we have yet to encounter and Hank and Dane have been able to provide the expertise! The email updates are always informative and to the point- they keep us on top of our game. We appreciate all they have done for us and highly recommend this group.

GriffinEstep Benefit Group and Beck Smith have provided our firm with the best options for our health, dental, and life/disability insurance needs. Their prompt and effective service to our small business is just as focused as if we were a large organization. Beck is always available to answer my questions in an extremely timely manner. Great customer service!

We have used GriffinEstep for 4 years now. Our Representative Beck Smith has found economically efficient ways for us to remain competitive with benefits compared to the much larger competition. Very responsive to any issues that may arise.

GriffinEstep Benefit Group helped our small team source employee health insurance for the first time in our organization's history. Their attention to detail and care meant a lot, especially considering our small employee base. Beck and Hank are wonderful humans to work with; they get the job done but have fun while doing it. You will love doing business with them!
