I am writing this letter of support regarding a fellow lawyer, Mr. Nicholas George. Though I’m normally loathed to recommend a fellow lawyer, I feel compelled to do so in his case. My reason is, though it is not difficult to find a lawyer who will fight in Court, it is rare to find a lawyer like Mr. George who knows how to conduct an intelligent fight. Put another way, plenty of lawyers are aggressive; Mr. George is effective. It is for this reason he has earned both my respect and my recommendation.

Mr. George is a forceful presence in negotiations and, if need be, at trial. His knowledge of criminal law is encyclopedic. This comes across during the first conversation one has with him. Those facing serious criminal charges would be remiss in not calling Mr. George to get an opinion about their case. He will tell them the truth and not make false promises. It is worth the time. I endorse this lawyer's work.
