His Legal Philosophy

George intentionallys limit his caseload so that he can give every client the personal attention you deserve.

Every client deserves an aggressive criminal defense lawyer who is willing to go to bat for them. A client is best served by a lawyer who is well prepared, and willing to try their case at trial. An attorney who very much prepares as if it was their own case. In a very real way, your case will become George’s life for the duration. This does impact George on and is one of the reasons he is very picky on who he picks to represent. He sets a high threshold of who to represent to be able to offer you the very best defense you could ever expect and then some.

His Guarantee

George will never try and force you to plead guilty. In some cases it is better for a client to have their lawyer negotiate a good deal (reduction in charges and penalties) than to risk going to trial, losing and getting a substantial jail time. That being said, George will always explain the evidence to you, go over all possible defenses, give you his opinion and let you make your own decision.
