    • I recommend George Mead.
    • I hired George 1-3 years ago.
    • George handled my Class Action matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Mr. Mead to handle a civil suit between my company and a shipping operation who had crushed my product in transit. He handled my case in a timely and thorough manner while explaining the legalities so they were easy to understand from a laymen's perspective. I was very impressed with how the case was facilitated and I will be recommending George Mead to my friends and colleagues. Very professional, thorough and helpful.

    • I recommend George Mead.
    • I hired George 1-3 years ago.
    • George handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Our company initially retained George to locally handle a breach of contract agreement we already had a large Seattle firm working on. Due to the amount of the complaint, we felt extra perspective would help to ensure nothing was missed. George was able to point out several areas the other firm was not addressing and offered a different strategy. Consequently, we made George the lead and eventually prevailed. George is now our "go to" guy for all corporate legal matters. I highly recommend .

    • I do not recommend George Mead.
    • I hired George 1-3 years ago.
    • George handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was extremely disappointed in George. He was unable to pay attention to detail. He was not responsive to my questions, often requiring me to ask the same question on multiple occasions, some of which he just never answered. His rate is too high given his poor service. His poor secretary doesn't have his schedule so she's not able to let you know when it's possible to reach him or to expect a return call. I've managed to avoid attorneys for 61 years. Unfortunately I moved to Portland in recent years and hadn't established a good referral network with other professionals so I used this site to help me decide. It is for this reason I wanted to be sure to provide an accurate assessment of his behavior and abilities. I had to fire George and engage another attorney who, in a brief period of time, uncovered issues that George had missed or didn't take the time to explore. I urge you to seek a referral from someone you know and trust.
    I am debating whether to contact the Oregon bar association about him. I'll give myself some time to get over my recent experience with him.

    • I recommend George Mead.
    • I hired George more than 3 years ago.
    • George handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    George Mead was retained to handle a Real Estate Fraud case.
    We have never been sued and this was a very traumatic experience.
    George made us feel extremely comfortable and explained in detail what steps would be taken and the potential costs. The entire litgation would take 15 months and became very involved with witnesses, expert witnesses and depositions. The preparation for each step was extremely detailed and always well prepared. The open communication, legal expertise and sound advice would lead us to ultimately win our case. George was also very affordable because he made very good decision as to what was the most important aspects of the case and concentrated on those items.
    I would highly recommend George Mead to anyone.

    • George handled my Administrative Law matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    George did a great job helping create a commercial lease for a building, I was remodeling, but did not own. It was a tricky situation. I was completely out of my comfort zone before I went to see George. He was helpful, detailed and never condescending.
