    George Stein is an exceptional attorney in his field. He is an individual who excels at all he does in all areas of his life, particularly at the practice of law. He is well known in the DUI community and very highly respected. I recommend him to anyone in an unfortunate situation of needing a DUI attorney.

    I had the opportunity to work with George on a DUI case in Bryan county. During this experience I found him to be one of the most knowledgable and well prepared attorneys I have ever come across. I would not hesitate to recommend any one to George.
