Well, I hired Duke 3 times. Was expensive all 3 times. Would have been a lot more expensive and time in jail without him. In the end he’s greatest lawyer you will ever get. The thing you have to remember is what you did was illegal. Instead of looking for a better lawyer which there is none maybe it’s cheaper and easier to just not break the law. No doubt when Duke retires I’ll be a law abiding citizen. Won’t risk it without him in my corner. Period.

He is well regarded by the Judges and DA for a reason!!!
I paid him $25,000 to represent me. Not once did he ever talk to the DA about making a deal!!! He also kept telling me not to show up for the court dates, I found out after that he was waiving my right to a fair but speedy trial!!! I never once gave him permission to waive my right to a fair but speedy trial!!! When my case finally want to trial he had me change my plea halfway through!!! Even though the 2 main witnesses who were in the same car told 2 completely different stories!!!! One of the witnesses was a pastor and the other witness was a teacher!!! And yet they had 2 different stories as to what happened!!! Why if the main witnesses have 2 different stories would you advise me to change my plea??? He did not hire anybody to do any kind of background checks on them nor did he hire any doctors or P.I.’s to do something for me!!! He just took my money and did nothing!!! The reason he is so highly regard is because he gets you in prison and doesn’t give two pennies worth about you!!! Never in a million years should you hire this bum!!! He will rip you off

Not worth 1 penny
He is probably the most overpriced and over rated attorney on the planet. Never ever hire this monster for even the smallest of crimes

No empathy.. judgemental man
Very sorry that I hired this man. He isn't in it for anything more than $$$. No empathy and very judgmental. I expected an attorney to be on my side. I fully regret paying him one cent as he was not in my corner. My advice.. find someone who believes in you and is not jaded. Believe it or not Attorney George people deserve fair representation. You are not it and making your clients less is despicable. Wish that I never met you.. and no a person with a dui may be a good person .. hope that you learn before you retire that you are no good for your clients

BE CAREFUL
I retained Duke George for a DUI. I paid him $1,500.00 retainer. He showed up for one hearing and never entered a notice of appearence in my behalf. I was told l had to pay a fine and it was over because it was my first offense. I did as I was told and was arrested when I went to pay the fine because I missed a court date that Duke never told me about. I did 30 days in jail and lost my job all over putting my trust in his care.
