About Patrick

Learn Patrick’s areas of practice.

Mr. George enjoys amateur photography and submits his photographs regularly to various contests. He views photography much like law. In photography, it is important to have the right settings to ensure that the correct amount of light is on the subject. It does not really matter if the subject of the photograph is backlit or in the shadow, the right settings can be found and a good picture obtained.

When it comes to law and clients, Mr. George uses the same approach. There is almost always a way of obtaining a favorable outcome for the client if the right rules are applied. This sometimes takes time and energy, but the results are worth it. The client can expect that his or her problem will be solved in a way that achieves their goal.

Mr. George received his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University receiving a B.S. in 1996. He obtained his legal education from the University of Idaho College of Law where he received his Juris Doctor Degree, cum laude, in 1999. Prior to joining the firm of Racine Olson in 2001, Mr. George clerked for the Honorable James J. May in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Soooo grateful
We were up against a workman’s compensation claim and could tell we were being railroaded but didn’t know what to do or what anything even meant. After we had Pat and his team involved, we were able to relax as he just took over and handled everything workmen’s comp had been throwing at us. He didn’t just handle the myriad of issues we faced but he took an interest in our lives and helped us secure benefits we didn’t know about that gave us a life back. The future was looking bleak. Without his persistence, we would have had little to nothing to live on. He will always be my go to if I should need help and I recommend him to all I know needing help.

I experienced a work injury which required surgeries and many other medical procedures and treatments. I contacted Pat George at Racine law and received a call back within an hour. We discussed my situation and he immediately gave me the support I needed. The staff at Racine law was excellent at communicating with me during my case. My calls were returned promptly and I was kept informed throughout. Pat was professional and cared about me as a person and helped tremendously as we navigated this difficult and at times overwhelming process together. Don’t waste time dealing with the insurance company, contact Pat George at Racine law today!

Amazing Attorney / Excelente Abogado
I want to express my sincere gratitude for my amazing attorney, Patrick N. George. He immediately gained my trust and gave me the peace of mind that I needed when dealing with my case. It was my first injury in an accident, and despite my initial impulse to “let things be,” we were able to fight for what was rightfully ours with all of his support and great dedication. I could take care of myself and heal from my accident while he took care of all of the details with our claim. You can call on him with the trust and confidence that he will keep your best interest at heart. Thank you, Patrick N. George, helping me recover from such a traumatic event.

Pat is a good man who I think genuinely cares for his clients. He remained very relaxed and cofident. This was a great help for my wife, who felt stressed during a personal injury (car accident) case. Very knowledgeable and experienced, he seemed to understand every intricacy of the case and anticipated how it would play out.

Excellent Attorney
Pat has been more than attorney, he has been a friend I can trust. He went up and beyond what is expected of an attorney. In the end Pat was more than fair on the attorney fee's. Thank you for everything Pat

Family Law/Custody Issues
Pat has helped our family through two very difficult custody issues. He was very responsive and made himself available whenever we needed his opinion throughout the course of both disputes. He is always prepared for our meetings and is straightforward. We would highly recommend him to any of our friends or family. He successfully handled both disputes for our family. His good reputation is well earned.

SSI Benefit Dispute
It's always difficult fighting with the government, as both their patience and pockets are essentially bottomless, such that they can bury you in frivolous claims and wait until you have reached your limit. Such was our case, when we came to Pat George at our wit's end. He was able to quickly sort the trivial from the imperative, and - through his research - to find those pieces which would prove that we had satisfied all of the requirements set forth by Social Security. At the start of the hearing, although the judge agreed that many of the claims made by Social Security looked poorly laid out and supported, he stated that he did not anticipate being able to overturn the main elements of the case. However, after Pat was able to clearly present our side, and send on the requested corroborating briefs, the case was entirely dismissed in our favor. Throughout all of this, Pat was in constant communication with us - patiently explaining the elements that were most crucial to our case, and guiding us in gathering the necessary supporting documents for our defense.

Excellent service; excellent attorney
Pat helped get our family through the most troubling situation in our life. Despite being in the legal "arena" for over 35 years, I had no idea how difficult fighting a civil lawsuit was going to be. Pat not only provided a wonderful defense (we prevailed!) to the allegations, but he kept us in the loop at all times, listened to our concerns and suggestions, and was able to reassure and calm us when things looked really bleak. While I don't miss the process, I do miss our frequent chats and even laughs during the good times. Highest recommendation!

Patrick was very good at getting all of the facts and expert information that we needed for this case since a business was involved. It was a very emotional time during the case and he was very good at talking with me and keeping me focus on what was the right direction to go. I have used him again on some estate paper work that i needed and would recommend him for any legal matters that you might need.

Family Law
Pat helped me with a custody issue, which are always difficult circumstances. Despite this, Pat did an EXCELLENT job which allowed us to prevail. I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me and my children. I would HIGHLY recommend him as he is not only very knowledgeable about the law, but also is honesty and trustworthy. He will expertly guide you through your legal issues and truly cares about the outcome of the case and how it impacts the people involved.
