The world is a crazy place, and sometimes when we encounter troubling experiences it is hard to know where to turn. Hiring a lawyer is one of the hardest obstacles for a person to confront when addressing a legal matter, and with some of the general stigma that lawyers are subjected to - it can be incredibly nerve-racking. I really wasn't sure where to begin addressing my legal matter, or how to find the place that would be able to help me the most. I talked with a handful of lawyers before finding George Brown. Many of them were intimidating, and I felt as if they did not listen to what I had to say before developing their opinions about the case. However, George heard everything I had to say and considered everything I felt before coming up with a concise, professional, and realistic perspective about how I should continue forward. I was facing a very severe charge, and instead of making me fearful, he gave me hope. He understands the law and is able to explain it in a fashion similar to that of an educator. He cared about my retention of the things we went over and I could tell that he genuinely cares about my well-being. It must be unfathomably hard to deal with so many different cases, and to still hold no judgement over a person. The situation I was in was complex, unique, and daunting, but he was able to walk me through the court processes, from arraignment to sentencing, and what was originally going to be a felony, was dropped to a misdemeanor. I ended up not serving any jail time, and the sentence I received was one that I feel was just, and considerate of who I am as a person. George Brown is worth every single penny I paid him and more. I could not have asked for a more compassionate, attentive, thorough, and determined lawyer to stand by my side throughout all of this. I will never be able to thank him enough for the way that he has helped me and protected my rights and my future in the name of justice. I would highly recommend him to absolutely anyone.

George Brown did a fantastic job helping with a probation violation. It was a honest mistake, George listened and helped us put together all the information needed. George was able to show the court that the probation violation wasn't willful and didn't indicate a lack to commitment to complete probation. Through his hard work the testing requirement was lowered enough to substantially help pay for his services!

Ther best choice I've made this year is hiring George Brown! He's very knowledgeable and professional! I hired him to get my probation order amended and he had no problems. Every question I had got an immediate response and he stayed in contact the whole time. I was promised a violatin by my agent but everything was so expedited they have time to violate me.. I would recommend him to anyone! It was truly a pleasure and I thank you so very much for the outstanding job!

Other lawyers i contacted in previous years would rather agree to help and then never return my calls, or take my case then quit half way through. So when i hired George, I'll admit i was just thinking i was headed down an all to familiar road. George MacAvoy Brown is a stand up guy! I wanted help in trying to expunge a felony from 20 years ago so i could deer hunt with a gun again with my family and one day my son when he gets old enough. When it was apparent that expungement was to much to ask, he switched gears and took aim at getting my gun rights back. I thought it would never work. When the court granted my wish i started crying i was so happy. NO ONE has ever helped me like that. I highly recommend you give him a try, he's as good as it gets. Thanks again George!

We hired George after another lawyer indicated to us that we could appeal a previous verdict because of extenuating circumstances.
Initially, I was charged with felonies for assaulting/resisting/obstructing police officers, and this was reduced to use of marijuana with 6 months of probation with the help of another lawyer. What we hadn't realized was that a use of marijuana charge would negatively impact my immigration situation. Because of this, I was advised to appeal the previous outcome. We found George on Google as one of the best lawyers in Michigan and subsequently hired him. George worked hard on my case to reduce it to a disturbing the peace charge with HYTA privileges. To call this a home run wouldn't be melodramatic!
However, even getting this appeal taken seriously, in the first place, wasn't easy. George had to negotiate with the prosecutor's office and run the deal by our immigration attorney repeatedly until he reached the best deal. He then had to convince the judge as well. What he did was not easy by any means, for convincing a judge and prosecutor to accept a greatly reduced charge takes outstanding talent.
George was also very communicative and responded to our questions promptly. He always kept us reassured and realistically hopeful. I recommend George to anyone seeking a top attorney.

I first spoke with George when I was looking for representation for a contempt of court hearing. I had spoken with about 8 or 9 lawyers before ultimately hiring George to represent me. Since my first conversation with him, he made me feel very comfortable and at ease about the situation. I felt like I finally had someone who was willing to fight in my corner and stand up for me. George’s communication is unparalleled - he always updated me immediately on things and was very quick in getting my motion filed. With his representation I was able to get my contempt of court case dismissed, freeing me of stress and agony. I couldn’t be me pleased with how things turned out. My only regret would be that I didn’t hire him sooner! If you want action taken, I would highly recommend calling George Brown.

After a failure of a night on New Year's Eve, I was in trouble. George was the first lawyer I had faith in. Other lawyers said I was going to have to complete probation and have a criminal record. They only spoke of plea deals which I would not want to take. I couldn't let this happen for my career. When I read the reviews and saw how Lewis & Dickstein could get cases dismissed, I decided it would be worth every penny I had to give it a shot. Long story short, George strategically had me take action before my court date and fought for me to ensure the best possible deal. Conclusion: Case dismissed! Now I can leave this mistake in the past and continue on with my life thanks to George. Highly Recommend.

I highly recommend George as a criminal attorney.
Most importantly he was able to secure a good outcome for us; one that was fair and just.
In doing that he demonstrated that he cared about us.
He was honest and fair with us in all out dealings.
He was very knowledgeable about the process and did a great job explaining it to us which really helped lower our anxiety levels.
Because of the fear, stress and uncertainty having someone that can explain what’s happening and why in a clear way was fantastic.
Hopefully I never need a criminal attorney again but if I do he’ll be my first call.

I cannot express how grateful I am to have found attorney George MacAvoy Brown. Facing a probation violation, I was looking at possible jail time, among other repercussions, and I was terrified. After my first meeting with George, I felt as though a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field, intelligent, down to earth, and truly cares about his clients. On the day of my arraignment, I walked out of court with only a warning not to violate probation again. The outcome could not have turned out better. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone facing a difficult legal situation!!! Thank you George!
