I hired Attorney George when dealing with a first time offense. He was prompt and attentive to my situation throughout the whole process. He answered my questions quickly and gave me peace of mind when it came to legal matters. He went above and beyond when appearing for court and his preparation prior to. I am very appreciative for all the hard work he and his support staff contributed to my case. Not only did he assist me with my case but he also referred me to other services that have changed my life for the better.
The results he achieved were very acceptable and minimal. His dedication and determination gave me an end state that brought about limited life changes. I am very happy with his performance and I believe that without Attorney George, my outcome would not have been as desirable. In conclusion, Tim and his team gave me a new lease on life and I am very thankful.

After the death of a close family member, my husband and I realized we needed to make sure our wills were updated and reflected our wishes. Tim was very helpful by clearly explaining all of our options. He closely reviewed our present will and made suggestions where possible adjustments were necessary. He was very attentive and addressed all our questions and concerns. We felt extremely confident in Tim and his staff. They were very professional, but at the same time personable and efficient.
Tim was also very helpful regarding legal issues dealing with the care of my elderly parents. He and his staff were quick to respond to phone calls I placed with them. Tim took the time to review what we had in place, and also informed us of issues we had never considered. We can not thank him and his staff enough for making this process so manageable. I will always consult Tim for any future legal matters that may arise in my family's future.

I hired Tim George to represent my son in a legal matter. Mr. George spent a great deal of time with my son and me answering our questions, giving sound advice, etc. Tim always returned our calls promptly, was easily accessible, and thoroughly prepared us for court.
Due to Tim George's expertise and his thorough preparation for court, the outcome was beyond our wildest dreams. In fact, everything was finalized at the preliminary hearing and we never saw the inside of the courtroom.
In closing, I would not hesitate to use Tim George again. Needless to say, I highly recommend him to others without any reservations. Thanks, Mr. George!

Tim George gave my wife and I a very prompt interview to offer his advise and he did a great job in helping us understand our options so we could make the right decision on our problem with our neighbor. We would also like to comment on how courteous the firm's staff was with us.

Tim was very prompt in returning our initial phone call. He demonstrated great flexibility enabling us to schedule a convenient time to meet and discuss our legal matter. We found Tim to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, and of the highest ethical standard. We will certainly recommend Tim to anyone in need of an attorney that is, quite frankly, a cut above the rest.

I want to thank Tim George for the outstanding representation he presented to the District Justice to successfully defend me on a traffic offense. His professional presentation showed research, planning and belief in me. I was extremely impressed with the confidence he showed throughout this ordeal.
I would recommend Tim George as an extremely organized, confident and friendly attorney to anyone who might need any legal representation. Once again, thank you for a job well done.

When our family, out of the blue, came into a legal problem, Tim George responded to our phone call the same day and within two hours of our call, without ever knowing or meeting our family. Further he responded both by phone and in person during the cases legal escalations before full relationship engagement had been completed. Once fully engaged, Tim, with our questions and concerns, guided and comforted us with his legal explanations, organizing, and case progress. On numerous times, during the case, Tim George initiated actions to litigate and reduce legal charges. Finally, Tim George was successful in minimizing the legal final results in the best interests of our family. We are grateful for Tim Georges law firm and their able, flexible, and competent legal expertise. Thank you Tim George of the Purchase and George Law Firm.

I contacted Tim George's law office for a consultation. The secretary was very professional and thorough. She made sure that she understood my concern and set up a time I could talk to Tim. I was impressed with Tim's professionalism and logical approach to my questions. I would recommend Tim to anyone in need of legal representation.

When a situation arose that I needed legal advice and representation on a traffic concern, some friends recommended Tim George. This turned out to be some of the best advice I have received in a long time.
From the moment I made my initial call to Mr. George's office I had a good feeling, as the receptionist and other assistants made me feel very welcome, and promoted the fact that I would receive the best legal advice and action from this law firm. This feeling was greatly enhanced when I had the opportunity to meet with Tim, explain my dilemma, and explore what my legal options were. From that first meeting, to my eventual court appearance Tim was constantly in communication with me, making me feel very comfortable of what the outcome could and should have been. Happily, I can report that most of my legal concerns were concluded in an advantageous manner to me, much to my delight.
From my experience, I can recommend highly Tim George and his law firm to anyone that finds themselves needing legal help as I did.

Tim George was very informative and sensitive with my case. He answered all my questions and told me what to expect in the following weeks. My stress and worries were relieved after our first meeting. Tim and his staff were very professional and prompt with our communications.

Tim was very helpful to me during a very stressful time. I found Tim to be informative, responsive and compassionate. He was able to understand the sensitivity of my case and I am thankful that I had Tim by my side!

My first meeting with Tim was very informative and I felt better after talking to him. He explained what had to be done and got it done. Without Tim and his staff, I may not have received the favorable results that I did. Tim and his staff are very friendly and true professionals and all of my calls were always returned. I would recommend Tim George to my friends and family.

I think that Mr. George did a great job in defending my brother with the charges that he was up against. I like that Mr. George made sure that my family as a whole understood what was going to happen step by step in the court preceedings. He also went out his way to make sure my brother whom he was representing knew and understood everything about what was going to happen with his case until the day of the sentencing. My family and I and truly blessed that my brother had Mr. George for his Attorney and he truly did his best to help my brother. Mr. George turned what could of been a 10year sentence into a 21month sentence and that my family and I ARE GREATFUL for. Thanks Mr. George for your dedication to your clients and to the City of Erie GREAT JOB AND WELL DONE!

Mr. George was very professional and quick to respond. He always treated me with respect and has a knowledgeable staff that is able to help you when he is not available. Mr. George helped me with a DUI arrest I faced several weeks ago. Even though I work evenings into the night Mr. George and his staff always responded to my questions and returned my calls. I was well informed of what i was going to face well before my hearing through conversations over the phone with Mr. George, meetings, and a helpful assortment of reading material I was sent when I reached out to Mr. George. I highly recommend Mr. George and his staff.

Not only was this an insightful experience into criminal law, Tim George was extremely effective at representing my case and achieving the best deal. His staff was completely professional as well as friendly when dealing with your case. In addition to this level of professionalism and friendliness, his office offers information for you to educate yourself before the consultation and they are free to take home. Tim George offers free initial consultation which essentially alerts you to the options you can take when charged with a criminal offense. Prior to the trial/hearing he then offers you a consultation to slowly let you know what is happening with your case. Throughout the time he is representing you, you can feel free to call him or his staff which will offer knowledge on what is happening with your case.
I full-heartedly recommend hiring Tim George and would note that he has gotten the results that I wanted 2/2 of the times I had employed his services.

Tim was extremely kind, very patient and respectful. He was amazing. His staff was also very helpful and friendly.

My son faced a number of serious charges, including felonies, and although he is a good kid, the situation he was caught up in made it almost certain he was going to be locked away for a long time. The thought of him not being with his kids broke my heart, but I didn't know what, if anything, I could do to help. Hiring Attorney Tim George was the best decision I made and helped my son more than I thought even possible. Tim and his staff did an excellent job preparing for his defense and communicating with me throughout. I was always aware of what was going on, what they were doing, and what was going to happen next -- without having to call and leave message after message. The outcome was also more than I could've hoped for and my son is doing great now with the second chance given to him by Mr. George. A few years later, when my daughter found herself facing multiple DUIs, I knew exactly where to turn and got the same outstanding service and results as before. I cannot truly express what a good job they have done, or my gratitude for them doing so, but at least from this I hope they know how much it was sincerely appreciated.

I got in some trouble back years ago and as a result had my firearm collection taken. This was over fifty guns. It took about five years but I got everyone of them back with the help of Attorney George. I met Tim George when he first opened his practice on 10th street here in Erie PA. Over the years he has helped me and my family. There team takes care of everything. They always return my calls and seem to go out of there way to handle all the problems for you. This guy swings a big bat.

Mr. George went above and beyond for me. He and I established a goal for the outcome early on and achieved it in the end. He has a very reputable standing in the legal community and used all of his resources to his advantage while helping me to see the outcome we desired. He was friendly, trustworthy, and let me know what was going on every step of the way. I had a very very good experience with Mr George.

I really thought attorney Tim George was very thorough handling my case. He would return calls promptly and professionally. Tim George is a wonderful attorney and I would recommend him to anyone who would require legal representation. I was very pleased with the outcome he helped deliver.

My original Law Firm was reaching the Statute of Limitations for filing my case. I was on pins and needles because very little was being done. Then, my case was given to Purchase & George. Immediately, they hopped on board. I was contacted and a meeting was scheduled at my home with their Case Manager. I did not have to make the nine hour round trip. His staff was very helpful and kind. I have been kept abreast of what to expect at each stage in the case. I have had several meetings with Tim. We meet in a little café across from the Courthouse to review new information which has been acquired.
If you want a good attorney who cares enough to represent you with the attitude that he is representing someone he cares about, then contact Tim. He keeps me straight on the facts and how to approach certain obstacles to help win my case.
Tim and his staff are trustworthy and have made me feel comfortable during this difficult time. His office is very prompt in returning phone calls and sending email information. I have confidence dealing with him and his support staff. They treat me with the utmost respect and are always friendly and that means a lot.
I hope to NEVER go through this process again, but I would absolutely recommend Tim to anyone who needs his services.
Posted by Amy, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
Tim was exceptionally helpful, knowledgable and responsive during my son's case two and a half years ago. I found him to be exceptionally trustworthy and honest about the case and what was realistic to expect and what wasn't in terms of the outcome. I believe that Tim's knowledge of the system and ability to communicate effectively with the District Attorneys resulted in my son's case having a much more favorable outcome than we expected. I would recommend Tim highly to anyone seeking an attorney for a criminal or other matter.

Attorney George did a great job for me. I was very scared during my case and he helped calm my fears while being very honest about what my worst outcome could potentially be. I am very grateful for his honesty and for not promising me an unrealistic outcome which allowed me to prepare myself emotionally and to take the necessary precautions. Luckily I couldn't have asked for a better outcome with my case! I was absolutely thrilled! All thanks to Attorney George and his staff's hard work and advice.

Attorney George was very helpful when I found myself in need of a lawyer. Every time I spoke with him (or one of his staff) I received the information I needed timely and he went out of his way to ensure I knew I could reach out if I had more questions.

I was referred to Purchase & George, P.C. by a friend. The office staff always treated me with kindness and courtesy. I just want Mr. George to know how much we appreciate his help. Mr. George always let us know how things went and what was going on with my case. I will refer friends and family to Tim George.

Mr. George and his entire staff are not only "on the ball" in every respect, they are some of the most courteous people i have ever met in any line of business.As a business professional myself I was very nervous and unsettled at the charges I was facing, and the potential that they could somehow hurt my position within my company and my report with the employees under me, needless to say when my anxiety got the best of me throughout the long court process, Mr. George and Angelina were most comforting and reassuring in every way, the anxiety was half the battle which was more than taken care of by their excellent service. Mr. George literally proceeded to tell me exactly what was going to happen every step of the way before it happened. I think that when one hires a law firm they are in effect hiring peace of mind, and thats exactly what you can expect from Tim George and his associates, I will recommend them 100% if given the chance.

I was refered to Mr. George about a year ago by a good family friend, when I asked him for advice on a dui charge I had incurred. I was set up for a meeting right away. I was exceptionally nervous, never having to speak to a lawyer before, but Tim made me feel at ease the minute we sat down to talk. Some questionable aspects of my case did come to light in our very first meeting. It wasnt until I got my certified mail detailing the charges that something was a miss. Very quickly another meeting was set up and within days a private investigator was hired to collect data and evidence. Even Tim himself took a personal interest in obtaining evidence that would prove crucial to my case. Throughout the court procedings he was always on time and always well prepared. He told me from the beginning "we" have a very slim chance to prove this conviction otherwise, I think "we" can win this. It was always "we", I never felt like I was in it alone. All of his hard work paid off. Due to evidence, questioning of the arresting officer, and a problem with the reasoning i was stopped in the first place, I was offered a plea. Instead of the DUI, I was charged with a summary offense and a fine. Tim George saved me from thousands of dollars in fines, a suspended licence, months of probation, and I did not have to use ARD. Hopefully I will never again need another lawyer for any defense purposes, but if I do I will choose Tim George. He fights for his clients and their rights according to law. He Is very attentive to your needs as a client, his staff has meetings set up quickly, calls often to update you on how your case is going, and is never to busy to take or return your calls. This is why if you are in need of criminal and/or legal advice and defense, TIM GEORGE IS THE RIGHT CHOICE.

Tim was recommended by another lawyer and I'm really really glad he was. I had charges from the attorney generals office and felt confident from the first time that I talkd to him that he would not lose my case.. Tim and his assistant (Angelina) treated me with tlhe utmost respect, not like a criminal. Tim answered all phone calls and I saw him in his office when needed. My outcome was unbelievably no jail, but the completion of an ARD program. (ARD is for first time offenders). I would highly recommend Attorney George for a criminal case.

I was in a situation where some people lied about some events that happened and because they lied it put me in a very bad position, I got arrested for something I didn’t do and faced possible jail time. Attorney George was recommend to me by a friend of mine who is also an attorney; he said he was one of the best attorneys that I could get and when I told my sister-in-law who I hired (who works at a different law firm) she also told me he was one of the best attorneys that I could have hired. They were both right! He was very attentive to my needs and situation. He got to work on my case very quickly; he had a private detective working on the case within a week or two and the other staff that he had working for him were quick to respond to my phone calls and questions and I seemed to always get a follow up call from Attorney George even if his staff had already answered my questions. He even called me on a Sunday morning while he was working on my case... That in its self showed me he was dedicated to his work and me.
When we went to the palmary hearing I was still very nerves even though I was told he was one of the best I could get, I was still unsure of things; (I don’t trust that many people) and even though he and his staff showed me they were dedicated to helping me I was still not sure until I watched him talk to the witnesses there and prepared them to be asked questions and have them answered truthfully, even how he handled talking to the police officer and the stack of marital in my file he had to help support my case.
He was very prepared! And for a person who doesn’t trust or have a lot of faith in people to do the right thing, Attorney George and his staff our people I feel are very trustworthily and brought a little faith back to me about people who do care about their work and the people they are working for and helping them while doing that work, not just someone going through the motions.
I hope him and his staff can do the same for you.
I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney; by the way I am not in jail so he must be doing something right!

So clearly and succesfully that the records were expunged. If you need highly professional help; retain Mr. J. Timothy George.
