At around midnight on July 1, 2016, I was arrested by PA State Police for DUI on I-90 just outside of Erie, PA. I registered a blood alcohol content of .111% which was over the legal limit of .08%. In addition, I was charged with wreckless driving, careless driving, crossing a white line and failure to keep right. I was driving in a highway construction zone marked by cones on both sides of the road along with white construction lines at the time of my arrest.
Upon notice from the state of the charges against me and an order to appear in court, I was told I would need an attorney to represent me in court proceedings. I began investigating legal firms in the Erie, PA area who specialized in alcohol related cases. The name of Purchase & George P.C. and, in particular, Timothy George, a partner in the firm, came up more than once. So, I decided to give them a call. I couldn’t have made a better choice.
I was impressed with Purchase George P.C. from the initial phone call. The switchboard operator was totally pleasant and professional and put me in touch with Mr. George. I discussed the situation with him and we arranged for a meeting in his office to discuss my situation, his firm, options and cost. It was very professional and I opted to hire Tim and his firm to represent me.
Again, I made the right choice. From the beginning, Tim went over all of my options very clearly and let me make the final decisions although he made recommendations. In my opinion, communication is key. My phone calls were always answered as were my questions. His staff was always very professional and pleasant.
Tim was very successful in my preliminary court hearing at getting all of the charges against me discharged except the DUI charge. After meeting with Tim and reviewing the Motor Vehicle Report and video of the arrest, Tim fought for me with the District Attorney’s office to reduce the charges below DUI and was successful in doing so. I am sure his experience, knowledge of the law and reputation had a lot to do with the outcome. I cannot thank him enough.
In the end, every case is different based on the facts. In my case, it turned out well because I chose the right legal firm to represent me. Not only is Tim experienced in these cases but his entire firm is top notch from the receptionist to the paralegals, to the partners, to the office manager, etc.
Thanks Purchase & George P.C. and Tim George and Staff!

There aren't enough words to express how elated we are with the end results Attorney Tim George delivered, he went above and beyond our expectations. Attorney George was always prompt in returning phone calls, straight forward about the facts and extremely empathetic with the horrible situation that our son was facing.
Never did we ever believe that false charges would be a reality in our lives, until it happened to our beloved son, who has never been in trouble in his life. This was nothing short of a nightmare, and the thought of him having a record for something that never even happened, was unacceptable.
Tim George told us immediately how much he wanted to take our son's case, as he saw that our son was being undeniably railroaded and unlawfully charged, for a crime that never took place. He assured us that he would do his best to get all of the charges dismissed and did exactly that. He is now working on getting the entire case expunged completely.
We will be forever grateful to Attorney Tim George for his outstanding job and taking the greatest of care in our son's case, to put all of this to rest once and for all.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

A poor decision on my part resulted in a DUI charge. After some research, I scheduled a few consultations, one of which included Mr. George (or 'Tim' as her prefers to be called). His professional demeanor and level of compassion made my choice very easy. He was honest and up front throughout my case. He made himself very accessible and answered any question I had through his email even on weekends and evenings. Even after my case was resolved (ARD), he continued to be there for me while going through the ARD program. I was extremely embarrassed by my poor decision. Tim made the process very smooth and his level of compassion was beneficial in me being able to put this behind and move forward.

Tim and his staff did the most thorough job one could possibly do, my case was different than the normal case, and he literally left no stone unturned to get the best possible out. Tim put my case in the best possible situation to have a successful outcome! I would highly recommend him and his staff for any case.

Tim George is a fantastic lawyer. Friendly, respectful, communicative, and thorough. The women who work in his office also deserve a lot of praise for their rapid response times and thorough follow-up.
I contacted Tim during a difficult time in my life. I was pulled over and charged with a DUI (thankfully no collisions, property damage or the like). I started researching lawyers in the area, and it became clear that there was a gold standard: Purchase and George. Tim personally consulted with me over the phone, sending my comprehensive packages of material to read up on what exactly I was being charged with, and what my options were. I live outside of Pennsylvania, but Tim and his office acted as an essential liaison between the police/court system and myself. We didn't miss a beat, and the process moved smoothly (although slowly – as legal processes often do).
After the initial hurdles, paperwork, meetings, etc. my court date arrived, and Tim and his team were there for me still. I forgot some paperwork back in my home state, but Tim's office moved quickly get the documents I needed. Didn't miss a beat. Tim fought for me, from every possible angle, and managed to reduce the charges significantly - most importantly, saving me from losing my driving license for any time – and I was successfully placed in Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD). He is still working with me, and after successful completion of the ARD program, his office will work to fully expunge my record.
I cannot express sufficiently the degree to which Tim and his office reduced the pain and stress associated with this process. He's truly dedicated, and has many year of experience to draw on. It shows in his work, awards, and – as I exemplify – in his satisfied clientele.

At our initial visit I was looking at at least one year to five years in prison. Through time, he was able to have my charges reduced to a minimum of 10 days to a maximum of 2 years. At the last moment, right before sentencing, he was able to argue my charge down to the very minimum and I only received six months probation. Thank you Tim

Mr. George is a true professional, thought the entire process Mr. George communicated information and updates of the case as soon as they were available. Mr. George never stopped fighting for me even when things looked doubtful, in the end all of his hard work and determination paid off as he was able to achieve the outcome we had wanted. I would recommend Mr. George to anyone that needs a true professional that gets the job done.

Hired for a first time DUI. A law change at the same time prevented a license suspension, if Mr. George did not know this, my case could have ended up a lot worse. I appreciated his experience and his direct method of communication. I recommend his services and his firm. The support staff was very helpful and professional.

I had the unfortunate need for an attorney recently. The task was daunting at best. But I have to say that Tim made the whole ordeal much more manageable and I am truly thankful to have worked with him. The staff there is great as well. Very professional and courteous and private. If I ever need an attorney again I will be calling Tim and his firm.

Attorney George was recommended by another prominent local attorney. Upon meeting with Attorney George, I found great relief in the confidence he showed in what he believed would be a positive
outcome. He promptly took the case and made me aware of what
needed to be done by myself and what he anticipated he would be able to accomplish toward a favorable judgement. Any questions I had were quickly handled by him and his staff. I would recommend him to assist anyone for their legal needs. You will not be disappointed.
