Get our free books before you meet with a lawyer. Just Call (814) 833-7100. Lots of questions? Don't know where to start? Get answers about DUI or Car Accident Cases in our FREE BOOKS, written by Avvo 10/10, AV-Preeminent, and Pennsylvania Superlawyers, Tim George & Eric Purchase.
You get a former prosecutor, Army JAG and top-rated lawyer. Tim credits the training provided by more experienced lawyers with whom he has worked for almost 25 years, his time as a criminal prosecutor, and his experience as an Army lawyer with shaping his "clients-come-first" practice.
You get a lawyer who understands that you have questions. Tim was called to active duty for one year in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2009 as an Army lawyer and now holds the rank of Major. He says, "Young Soldiers leaving their families behind have lots of quesions, want information, and battle fear of the unknown much like our clients who have never been involved in the civil or criminal justice system. For most Soldiers, it was their first war. For many of our clients, it's your first time facing criminal charges or the first time you were hurt in a car or truck accident. You want - and deserve - answers to your questions and time to work through your options. You also want the best results possible. We help you do that at Purchase & George, P.C."
You get a lawyer with the resources of a larger law firm. After returning from Iraq, Tim formed Purchase & George, P.C. in 2010 with Eric Purchase. Both lawyers are rated 10/10 by Avvo and AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest lawyer rating company in the country. Both are top-ranked by their peers as Superlawyers, a designation held by only 5% of lawyers in Pennsylvania. They have assembled a team of of well-trained, client-friendly professionals to help you.
You get lawyers who get what's important to you. Tim says, "Our objectives are to defend freedom and pursue justice and, in the end, help people and their families." You want good information and clear communication from your lawyer in order to work through the uncertainties of your case. We understand this. And you want a good result. So do we. You can get started by calling for our free consumer books today. Or you can schedule a free consultation at (814) 833-7100.
We don't accept every case. We are not a mill. We help people. One person at a time. One case at a time. Fewer cases for us means more time for you and your family. More time to meet. More time to explain. More time to get the best results we can for you. If you think we might be a good fit for you and your case, call us today at (814) 833-7100.
You get answers to your questions - and time with your lawyer. We limit the cases we accept in order to give you more time and attention. The more information you get, the better decisions you make, and the better results we can get together.
Convenient location for you. In 2004, we moved to 2525 West 26th Street in Erie after overseeing extensive renovations made there. The location is centrally located and easily accessible, just one block west of I-79. The location is convenient for clients throughout Northwestern Pennsylvania and offers free parking.

Tim is really a top notched guy and a top notched lawyer. He has always been friendly with me since my admission to the bar, despite the fact he was much more established than I was at the time and really there was no benefit to him. Tim helped guide me in the right direction in several cases. He is a very smart attorney with an unparalleled work ethic and integrity. I fully endorse Tim in any matter you may considering hiring him for.
