Outstanding Criminal Attorney
Until a few years ago, I had never had any legal issues, aside from the occasional parking or speeding ticket. No one ever expects to be charged with a serious white-collar felony crime. When it happened, I was terrified and spent most of my time scouring the internet for answers, which only heightened my anxiety. Then I was referred to George LaMarche at LaMarche Safranko Law. From the moment I met him, he put me at ease and I felt completely confident in his ability. Mr. LaMarche has a unique mix of compassion and reality. He never sugar-coated anything and explained every detail from start to finish so I knew what to expect. He and his team were always accessible no matter the question or concern, and often just hearing the answer got me off the ledge. Facing a serious criminal charge is a huge mountain, and you want the best to help you tackle it. George LaMarche and his team will provide you with everything you need to obtain the best possible outcome. Without their representation, I know the end result would have been entirely different,

Exceptional Respect for his expertise...
George cares for his clients best interest. He especially will take your case with only the best intentions. The stars aligned us together when I was wrongfully accused over the holidays. While caring for my mother in her home she was in hospice and I was approaching my son's heavenly anniversary. Being a caregiver for our loved ones is the utmost torture on the heart and George alleviated this added stressed having the case fully dismissed within two months of the charges. I have tremendous respect for his professionalism and dignity. He truly cares and is committed.

My Champion, My Friend
Grateful, Relieved and Relaxed. I could say more but this is how I felt after getting help from George LaMarche on several occassions with my legal battles. Its comforting to have someone like him to turn to. He displayed an ability to balance compassion for my problems with straightforwardness on the facts. I respect that, and hope to have him in my corner for years to come.

NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES...Apparently they wear suits
Mr. Lamarche took what felt like 2000 pounds of stress off the shoulders of my family and I. Even doing that with such compassion and intelligence throughout his time in the courtroom. For that, I will forever remember and recommend his service to those I care most. I know what you are thinking, no we are not being paid for this review my husband and I are genuine customers. When we left that courtroom everyone in that room was in awe of how kindly and truthfully he won my case. People literally went out of their way to ask for his card to give you a better idea. He was prepared with what looked like a 5-inch binder and it really showed during our hearing. He did not worry about his time or his other meetings that day that unfortunately had to be rescheduled. He was focused, charming, and most importantly you can feel he is a lawyer that loves and is good at what he does. The whole time he reassured my husband to keep his hopes high and that he will be there for us while giving us realistic scenarios. He truly looked at us with empathy and a desire to help. If you are in the search for a lawyer that cares, and most importantly is brilliant in making your truth be your savior, George Lamarche is the man.

Exceeded all expectations
George was a true professional. He is reliable, beyond knowledgable, and a truly hard-working attorney. I felt completely comfortable and confident having him as my attorney. Texts and phone calls were ALWAYS returned in a timely manner. Time was always taken to talk through things and I always felt like a top priority. I could not recommend him enough.

George is The Best
George was referred to me by another attorney that we use for estate planning. I was being accused in a very serious matter and was very nervous about the potential outcome. Right from the beginning, George stated that he treated clients like friends and genuinely wanted the best result....which was all 100% truth. He and his staff were awesome. Always got back to me in a timely fashion, provided options as they came along, and made the process as easy as possible. He ended up getting a great result and I was more that satisfied. I would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone at anytime. Thanks for Everything George!

First class legal services
I have used the services of George Edward LaMarche III in a recent case. I must say that I am an attorney myself and a senior partner in Canadian national law firm. I found Mr. LaMarche very practical and easily accessible. He delivered a tremendous result in a very short time.

Above and Beyond
May 2016 after loosing a loved one in a accident. We sought out the help of an attorney. We came across George. A few days later my family had a consultation. It was during the consultation when we realized the direction we needed to go in as a family. We hired George. George made the process of loosing a loved one as seamless and gentle as possible. He truly helped our family gain stability and a sense of direction in a significant time of heartbreak. George shows endless amounts of compassion and works diligently to meet the needs of our family by answering many questions we had involving our case. He always kept our family up to date in every single step of the way He even helped several months later when something in regards to our case suddenly appeareed out of nowhere. Hiring George was one of the easiest decisions we made in such a time of greif.

Excellent experience
This was my first experience dealing with a lawyer. My case was handled in a professional manner. All my questions were answered and I believe I was given excellent legal advice. This office was responsive and responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. My case was adjudicated to the best possible resolution.

Top Knotch Attorney who cares about his clients
I was referred to George by my local attorney after being injured and suffering a broken neck in a motor vehicle accident while riding in a "for hire" bus. George traveled to my location and met with my wife and me. After the first meeting I was convinced that he was the attorney to handle my case. He is honest and straightforward. His firm handled all my medical claims and every aspect of the case. He was able to obtain what I felt was a fair settlement from the bus company in a reasonable amount of time without ever going to court, or anything other than me just signing releases so he could correspond directly with my medical providers and insurance companies. Communication with him and his absolutely wonderful assistant Tracey was superb. I sincerely hope I never need his services again, however strongly recommend him for anyone who does!

Does He Care?
Even though George was representing me in a very serious legal matter, one that could have forever altered the quality of my life if mishandled, it was only one battle at a time in my life when I was besieged in equal measure on all fronts. If I was going to overcome the vast difficulties facing me, I would need the assistance of good people, people who did their jobs for the right reasons. As a teacher I am in the business of caring, and I felt that I needed an attorney who viewed his professional responsibilities in a similar fashion. I scheduled a consultation with George after discussing my situation with him by phone, and after the call I had a strong sense that I had found the right person. The events that ensued did nothing but strengthen this conviction. Yes, the outcome was important, but it was the fact that I never felt the need to monitor the situation, probe George for information, or involve myself in any other equally undesirable forms of micromanagement that meant the most to me at the time. I trusted George implicitly to handle my legal matter with skill and caring, and the eventual outcome would not have been possible had George not thoroughly possessed these professional qualities. I have been around long enough to appreciate the value of people like George. If you are reading this it is highly likely that you are in serious need of legal assistance, and my advice to you is to relieve yourself of much of the stress and hire Mr. LaMarche. I know that what he did for me was not an anomaly.

Highly Recommend
I contacted Mr. Larmache's office in the late evening hours and received a return call in only a few minutes. Although I was not a client, I was extremely frustrated, confused, and unsatisfied with the paid representation from the attorney which my family retained. Mr. Larmarche listened to our concerns, provided guidance and suggested I summarize my questions via email for his review. The following morning when we reconnected Mr. LaMarche discussed the questions with me, contacted the attorney which my family retained and followed up with me. I was not charged for any of his services. Mr. LaMarche provided his knowledge and expertise to my situation with disregard for compensation. The level of comfort and support he provided is invaluable. After our conversations I FELT BETTER. I received a response to the questions. I hope to never need a criminal attorney again. In the unfortunate event that I find my son or someone I care about in need of representation I will be contacting Mr. LaMarche without reservation. He epitomizes the expectation one should have in legal counsel. I feel confident in his ability to act in the role of an advocate, spokes person and interpret the law in a manner which facilitates the best outcome. The AVVO site shows his rating as a 10 - - - I would give him a rating of 100!

Mr. Compassionate
Mr. LaMarche is an exceptional lawyer not to mentioned a wonderful human being. He gave advice to myself for things only one who cares would. Even though my circumstances didn't involve his expertise he directed me to someone only he would trust for himself if in my shoes!! Thank You from the bottom of my heart!!

A Good Man
No one likes to be in a bad situation, but if you need a lawyer George is your man. Not only does he point you in the right direction he offers good advice for your future. As much as we bring him business he does not encourage that next time anticipation. George is a pleasure to know. Someone you feel comfortable with. He knows the law well and keeps you informed of any and all new developments with your case. If trouble arises and you need some answers call George. He will put your mind at rest. I am very proud to say that if I need professional help George will be the man for the job.

Excellent Expierence
I can honestly say that the best decision I've ever made was retaining George Lamarche as my attorney. I was in a situation where everything was at risk; my career, livelihood and the ability to provide for my family. In desperation I contacted over a dozen attorneys. The majority of the lawyers I spoke with promised results without seeing paperwork or knowing valuable facts. I can also say that the majority of the lawyers were more concerned with their retainer than providing me with an honest, educated opinion. My search ended the moment I spoke with George. He promised me nothing! He did not ask for a retainer until after he reviewed the case and was able to provide me with an honest opinion. He knew I was under pressure and did not add pressure by trying to hurry me into a signed retainer. He explained any and all possible outcomes. Throughout the process George was in constant contact, he never left me wondering what was happening. Thanks to George, my case ended with the best possible outcome. I'm also reassured in knowing that if I'm ever in need of an attorney again, I will only make one phone call and that's to George. I have and will continue to recommend George to anyone who is in need of an attorney.
