I could not have made a better choice! My sone had said to me long before I needed representation that if I ever needed a lawyer I was to call George McCranie. I did and I am very pleased, extremely pleased with the end result.

Completely Satisfied
I hired George F. McCranie to represent me in a DUI case four years ago. I was able to meet with Mr. McCranie immediately with no delay. Staff was courteous and helpful. Mr. McCranie was more than capable of handling my situation and secured a more than satisfactory disposition in my case. I have recommended George F. McCranie to friends and family and would contact him immediately for any future needed legal representation.
