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.

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.

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!
