  • Peter Mandeville Zeliff

    I have known George for several years and he is recognized by many attorneys as an excellent attorney. He is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys I know and is not afraid to challenge a law he deems unconstitutional or unfair. He works hard for his clients and is respected by his peers for his refusal to back down from a fight. He fights for what is right and this courage often leads him him to the Court of Appeals. Many of the DUI lawyers that I know, as well as myself, keep an eye on the cases he appeals to look for new changes in the law.

    If you have a DUI case that you want to fight, I recommend the services of George Creal without hesistation. George defends cases that many other lawyers would have long ago given up on. He knows the law, and he knows how to deliver results in the defense of DUI charges. George is an honest and committed DUI lawyer who will not give up on your case.
