  1. Pit Bull with a bone in the Courtroom

    • I recommend J. George.

    I was charged with DUI 6 months ago. Tim George was recommended by a close friend, and thank God i called Tim. He promptly met with me to review my circumstances. I explained that this would be devastating to my business if found guilty. Tim worked closely with me to begin collecting evidence that could possibly get the charges dropped in a suppression hearing. After months that it takes to go through preliminary hearing and getting a suppression hearing with the court system. The day finally arrived for my hearing. To say i was a nervous wreck is an understatement. Tim calmed me down and discussed again with me that the evidence he and his staff had collected should be enough to possibly receive a favorable ruling from the judge. Tim and his staff treated me with respect and honesty throughout this embarrassing time in my life. The hearing began and the case was presented by the District Attorney. When it was time for Tim George to begin my defense, Tim began to question the state trooper that had arrested me. After Tim got the trooper to make several untrue statements, contradicting evidence that Tim and his staff had collected. That is when became 'A Pit Bull with a New Bone". Tim relentlessly questioned every untrue statement the trooper had made. Once Tim bit into this trooper, he would not let go. Tim began presenting the overwhelming evidence that he had collected. This evidence proved that the trooper had lied several times about his justification to initiate the stop in the first place. At this point i was more impressed than ever with how hard Tim was fighting for me. In 6 days i received a call from Tim to tell me the "Great News". The Judge had ruled in our favor, and all evidence was to be thrown out. I have to say, I think Tim was as excited as me to hear the news. Tim George and his wonderful staff had just saved me from what would have meant jail, loss of license, thousands of dollars in fines and possible destruction of my business. I owe Tim and his Staff much more than just the legal fees i paid them. Tim called me a few days later to tell me, he would try to get the "Arrest" expunged from my record at no additional cost. As phenomenal a job that Tim and his staff did for me in this trying time, i have every faith that he will accomplish this for me also. If you need a lawyer who will truly fight for you, then Tim George is the lawyer you need to call.

    I found myself in a situation I never expected to be in. I was referred by my attorney for this case. He called Attorney Tim George. Attorney Tim had little time to prepare and reverse a PFA. I watched Attorney Tim go to work and prepare for the hearing. Not only was he prepared, he was stellar in my defense. I have never been so concerned about my future. Attorney Tim's skill and personal nature showed the facts and reversed the ruling. Being innocent is not always enough! You need a smart, hard working Defense Attorney. Use Attorney Tim George. I am so glad he was there for me.

    Tim George and his team are just that--truly amazing. My brother came to Tim, after meeting with several other lawyers, facing possible criminal charges for a crime he didn't commit. While the other lawyers had a "wait and see" attitude, Tim disagreed. He was VERY proactive and began working on the case immediately. With his persistence, hard work, and excellent communication with all parties involved, charges were not filed. Tim and his staff were always professional and available. I can't say enough good things about them. If you need a great lawyer, call Tim George.

    Tim has helped me through a very difficult time of my life. Tim started my the case the very same day we met with him. Tim always kept me up to speed on my case and about any actions he was going to take or any phone calls he was going to make. I shared information with him and he actually looked at everything I gave him. My divorce lawyer didn't look at any of it, which I was very upset at cause it was material to help with my custody, at least I thought so. I had numerous conference calls with him and his knowledge of the system and the laws is outstanding. I would recommend Tim to anyone who is facing charges, especially if you have been wrongly accused. He works very hard on your case, and if he has something on his mind he is not afraid to call you in the evenings, which I thought was great. That tells me that he is always thinking about you and your well being. If I am ever in need of a lawyer again, Tim will be my first phone call...

    Tim George used his considerable knowledge, along with his wide-ranging experience with the issues and the people in the legal arena, plus some in-the-moment quik thinking to create and provide a strong opportunity for success in my case. His calm confidence is both inspiring and reassuring that one is in the right hands. In the first few days, when my wife was in a panic, Tim made a personal call to her to answer all her fears and to clearly explain our options and the things we could expect in the process. A genuine good man who knows how protect his clients' interests. I recommend him without reservation.

    • I recommend J. George.
    • I hired J. George 6-12 months ago.
    • J. George handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had never been in a situation like the one I found myself in after driving for 44 years. To say the least, I was very nervous about the outcome. Tim George took control of the situation and asked me point blank questions about what happened from my perspective. From the first day I visited his office, he and his staff exhibited a professional demeanor.

    Tim George had me in and out of the district justice's office within 30 minutes and my life is now back to normal without a black cloud handing over my head. Could I have done this on my own? Absolutely not.

    At a time in need, Tim George came through for me. I would highly recommend Tim George!

    • I recommend J. George.
    • I hired J. George 6-12 months ago.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Tim's connections locally (In Erie and Millcreek) and regard amongst his peers made him an easy choice to represent us.
    He sucessfully negotiated an extremely favorable result saving our family a substantial amount of money as well as heartache.
    I would strongly suggest considering him and / or his firm for any legal issue.

    I was on the outside looking in. My wife filed a PFA on me. I had no home. No where to go. I could not even see my kids. I was recommended by another attorney to see Tim George. Court hearing was in 6 days. I met with Tim. He reviewed my case, and said we had a chance to win this. I was having a difficult time dealing with everything. Tim was there to calm me down. He once said I feel your frustrations. I know this is very difficult for you! I told him you cant imagine. How hard it is, after 23 years. For not to be able to go home ! Tim assured me. That he would do his best in getting me back home. I was impressed . How fast he prepared for the hearing. On court day. Tim showed up full of energy, and said he was ready! This made me feel very confident, heading into the court room. Needless to say, 2 hearings later. I am still battling this PFA. But since then Tim has worked very hard in getting me supervised visits with my boys. For this reason, I am in debt to Mr. George for what he has accomplished. He has been there for me! Tim would call me on off hours, and weekends . To talk about the case. He goes above and beyond the call of duty. I am very confident in the future. That when my case goes back to court. I am in good hands. I would highly recommend Tim George. lets not leave out his support staff. They made my case much easier. Always returned my calls and emails. They were even there, to listen to me . When I needed someone to talk to. In this very troublesome time. A very trustworthy and understanding firm. Thanks Mr. George and your staff.

  10. Thank you, Mr. George.

    • I recommend J. George.
    • I hired J. George 1-3 years ago.
    • J. George handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    In the past year I have had to deal with two very serious cases that have greatly impacted my life. I sought out Mr. George for both of those cases. After getting all charges dismissed in my first case, I knew that I would need his help the second time around. I am also pleased with the outcome of my second case. He and his team were very polite, informative, caring and patient. In fact, EXTREMELY patient with not only me but also my family. They, of course, were there to answer every question thoroughly. I thank Tim George and his team for being a big help through full of concern and many questions and Mr. George took the time to explain each process during this unfortunate chapter in my life.
