Misdemeanor Dismissed!
This was my first time ever needing a lawyer and from what I'm being told I lucked out with George. He was recommended to me by a friend of mine who heard my story and thought it was right in George's wheelhouse. It was, George helped me get my license reinstated and got my misdemeanor dismissed all during covid lockdown! He was able to get done what I was trying to do for at least a year in a few months while navigating the new corona virus hurdles placed in front of us all. I'd 100% recommend his services.

Dependable/ Personable/ Experienced/ Affordable
I was referred to George by a co-worker. George made me feel comfortable and confident through both my situations. His experience, confidence and understanding of similar legal situations helped clear my case. George kept close communication with me through text/emails, and was available whenever I needed him. I never had to wait longer than ten minutes for a response from him. He is extremely dependable. I highly recommend George without a doubt.

Great Traffic Lawyer!
George answered my frantic call on a Sunday! He resolved my old traffic issue that turned into a "failiure to appear" due to change of address and notice not getting to me --- within a week or so. He was professional, calming, warm and very responsive and communicative. Cannot recommend him more highly .

Amazingly Talented Attorney...
George Leary, is a dedicated, hard working, client-centered, knowledgeable and, better yet, affordable attorney that I couldn't recommend more highly than I already do. Thanks to a financial downturn in my company I relocated from California to Florida on short notice without resolving a set of traffic violations that turned into a suspended license, warrant for my arrest and fines and penalties totaling thousands of dollars. Following just a few phone and email exchanges with George, he was able to get the warrant rescinded, most of charges dismissed or consolidated and the fines reduced to a fraction of the original total and my license reinstated. And, he did it all from 2,500 miles cross country without even initially having to meet me face-to-face until the case was fully resolved. So you can imagine what he can do for his local California clients. If you have any kind of legal problem from a suspended license, warrants, DUI charges to drug or other misdemeanor charges that he specializes in, George should be the first call you make. Trust me, it'll be the only one you need to make. Thank you again George for helping me get my driver's license and my life back!

George is an excellent Attorney!!!
Mr. Leary is an outstanding attorney. As a former prosecutor he knows how the legal system works and is able to deliver results for his clients. My initial DUI charge was reduced to reckless driving through George’s hard work. George was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. His rate was extremely reasonable compared to other attorneys. I would highly recommend George.

Great Attorney
Mr. Leary was exactly what I was looking for as a client. Being an out-of-state client, my case required some extra work and cooperation on his end. He was extremely patient with me in getting all the right documentation to court without me having to actually appear, which saved me a great deal of stress and money. I hired Mr. Leary for a traffic violation and he was extremely knowledgable on the subject. He clearly laid out my options and was very realistic with me. I was happy to see that he was not giving me false hope and I knew exactly what to expect going into every situation and circumstance. There was not a single time that I questioned Mr. Leary's intention, dedication, or consideration when it came to my case.

DUI Criminal Law
George Leary was recommended to us from friends of friends in law. A friend of mine and I needed legal advice with regards to a DUI. This was actually my friends third DUI so we really needed solid legal advice/guidance. George was professional from the first meeting and carried his word throughout the process. He is honest, factual, realistic and very helpful. He always responds quickly whether its via email or text which is extremely re assuring when you are going through a stressful process. I highly recommend George and will continue to use his legal expertise moving forward when needed. He is extremely knowledgable of the criminal process with regards to DUI's and he won't sugarcoat anything. He truly goes above and beyond for his clients and cares about their well being. His knowledge proved he has immense experience in this field. I have also called on George for other legal advice and if its not within his scope, he recommends another well respected attorney. I can't say enough about how much George helped my friend and I and we are both beyond grateful.

Case Dismissed
I was charged with a possible felony almost a year after an incident that threatened the safety of my 2 and 4 year old boys. I was extremely nervous and upset about the whole situation. George put me at ease and explained everything he was going to do to help me. George kept me informed every step of the way. I never saw the inside of a court room. George was able to get the case dismissed after negotiating with the prosecuter. George exceeded my expectations.

Top Notch Attorney-at-Law!
George was helpful in my Criminal Law Court Case, keeping me informed with the appropriate information every step of the way. I always felt in the loop and with that came a feeling of comfort and safety in working with such an intelligent lawyer. He represented in the best possible light and got me out of a sticky situation without much more than a scratch. This guy knows what he's doing and does it at an affordable price! Go with George, you won't regret it!

Attorney George Leary is a great professional
I am a Massachusetts resident and was out in California on vacation and received a DUI and needed a lawyer. I was referred to George from a lawyer I knew back home.If you are looking for a professional attorney please look no further. This man is true to his word and has helped me multiple times on my DUI case. He is very helpful and is almost always available when you need him unless he is in court. He knows the way the court runs and the laws very well. I would give him a 100 out of 100 on client services. Great respectable hard working man I will always refer him to anybody that needs help in the Los Angeles area.

Great Rate for an Excellent Lawyer
I recently hired Mr. Leary to represent me in a DUI charge brought on by the State of California. The day after my arrest I was beyond stressed out and reached out to him to represent me. This initial call not only put me at ease but was incredibly informative. It was a no brainer from there to hire him, and this was a great choice on my part. Simply put Mr. Leary was always available to discuss my case when I reached out to him, was very informed of the charges and without fail could explain to me in terms that I understood what was going on. His commitment to my case was undeniable. I would recommend his services to any member of my family or close friends as I was nothing but extremely satisfied by his services and rate.
