George took on what was a very difficult situation at the end of life for our start up company. He guided us in resolving issues with various disputes in a highly professional manner while keeping our interests and goals clearly in focus. He gave us both legal and emotional support during a very tough time and continues to be our counsel and mentor. I only wish I had met George at the start of our venture! HIGHLY recommended.

As a disabled person I tried unsuccessfully to communicate clearly with my employer well ahead of an assignment out of state. My employer, based in another country, insisted I relocate to Silicon Valley immediately so they could save money. They flew me there, and kept me so busy I didn't know which end was up.
Deperate I called a friend who said "why are talking to me? Hire an attorney right now!" Good advice.
I tried hiring a large firm who claimed to have expertise but they turned me down. Then I searched & investigated more, and discovered George, and Vera, experts in employment law.
Using clear and clever thinking they explained what I should do and advised the correct approach in a meeting, asking me to remain in close touch through requesting for protected status with my employer’s HR under the Americans with Disabilities Act. I sent all the emails and made the calls, contacted my doctors and surgeons, while they supported me every step of the way.
Suddenly my remote boss, HR, and the ADA representative developed their first clue that I would not be bullied into spending my own money on an irrational demand to move to one of the most expensive areas on the West Coast, without my service dog.
Suddenly my employers attitude completely changed.
The language George and Vera recommend I use, the patience they inculcated in me, the immediate turn around times - Who provides this kind of service these days? These guys do.
So I called my friend back, and told him. I took your advice, hired 2 attorneys, specialists. I'm spending money on this, and he said "how much exactly?" I told him, and immediately he replied "oh, so you saved a ton of money and you won't have to move. Such a deal." And my friend is so very right.
The stress is much much less as I go through each part of this horror show, and I am certain I will be successful in my endeavor to do the work I love without giving in to unreasonable demands that are obviously beyond my ability.
George's experience is so rich that even his hints about possibilities helped me act in the moment to help myself.
If you need really dedicated personal service George Tamblyn is my hero. Don't worry, George knows it all, and Vera and he will move things into your favor.

I used Avvos legal question services. I sent George Tamblyn a very detailed letter about my legal case regarding employment law, questions I had about specific laws, etc. I made an appointment to meet with George and after reviewing all of the details, he gave his opinion that I had a solid case, even after I expressed concerns with the Washington State employment law verbiage. Based upon his counsel that I had a solid case, I decided to hire George and his law firm to pursue my case. They wrote a letter to my former employer and gave it to me to review. I asked some questions about laws cited in the letter, and instead of answering my questions, they rewrote the entire letter. The letter was sent to my former employer, who responded citing the exact laws that I had initially questioned. George then advised that I drop the case as I had no legal ground to persue the wages in question. I feel that I was either intentionally misled into believing that I had a case, or that Mr. Tamblyn was not familiar enough with the law to realize I did not have a case. Either way, I am not satisfied with the outcome of using his services.

I had questions about a consulting companies agreement that was to me a little bit off. After reviewing it with George late on a Friday afternoon, on a Mariners game night no less, I left feeling better then when I arrived and more confident about discussing it further with my hiring company the following week.
He provided me with answers to my questions and corrected my misinterpretations of the document. Thanks George.
Hey Avvo, Chris here :). Awesome to actually use the service. My mother is going through a medical condition that is a little uncertain in terms of insurance and the service worked fantastic and provided a ton of options for us. Love the new design, too.

George was my attorney for an employment discrimination case. He was exceptionally knowledgeable, realistic, and fair, He handled the case in a timely manner and was able to get a satisfactory settlement. He was always informative and professional, never condescending or rude. I would recommend him without any hesitation.

I worked with George on a wrongful termination case, that had some difficulties, based upon my personal needs in the case. George treated me with kindness, respect, and total professionalism. I ended up with an outcome that met my needs and my expectations. I would recommend George Tamblyn highly to anyone who may need an attorney. Thanks again Goerge!!
