Nicholas George was born on July 11, 1952. He is the proud father of two sons, Nick and Jimmy. He is a resident of Tacoma Washington. His interests include travel, history, archaeology, sports, and winning DUI cases.


 


Nicholas is a subject of a biographical interest in Who's Who in American Law, Who's Who in America, and many other periodicals and journals. He has received a rating of high legal ability and the highest ethical standing by Martindale-Hubbell, a nationally recognized evaluation institution for the legal profession.


 


Nicholas received a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Whitman College in 1974. He graduated Cum Laude with Distinction in Major Course Study. In 1979, Nicholas earned his M.B.A. from the University of Chicago. In 1989, Nicholas received his law degree from the University of Puget Sound School of Law.


 


Since 1991, Nicholas has focused on Washington DUI Law and Washington DUI Defense, Washington Criminal Law and Defense, and Washington Traffic Law and Defense. His practice is statewide. He is a member in good standing of the Washington State Bar Association, and is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for Eastern and Western Washington, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.


 


Mr. George has been a private panel attorney for the public defender in several counties and handles DUI arrests throughout Washington State. He has argued Washington criminal and Washington DUI law before Divisions I and II of the Washington State Court of Appeals. As a law student, Mr. George was a judicial extern for Washington State Court of Appeals Division I in Seattle Washington. He has also been the Chair of the Criminal Law Committee for the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association.


 


Nicholas is a longtime member of multiple Bar Associations. He has won several Washington DUI trials by using law enforcement videos to his client's advantage and frequently confers with other dui attorneys to create new dui tactics. His philosophy of Washington DUI defense is knowing as much as possible about Washington DUI laws and knowing what counts in beating a Washington DUI charge. Nicholas is constantly attending continuing education classes for DUI's and other criminal matters.  This means he is staying up-to-date with the lastest information on strategy so he can attempt to get the best resolution for his clients.

    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.
