I have a degree in accounting that helps me crunch numbers better than most, from U of W. I've been a die-hard Husky since the 70s, Go Dawgs!


With my wife, I rescue and re-home dogs, particularly older or injured dogs that don't have a lot of hope to escape euthanasia. We have helped chihuahuas, papillons, pit bulls, labs, corgis, bulldogs, cattle dogs, schipperkes, rottweilers, retrievers, collies, and everything in between. 


I am a member of WOOFD2, a club for participants in frisbee dog sports. My dog Babe was a state champion who toured the country and even went to Canada to promote her sport. 


I enjoy fishing, golfing, boating, skiing, bowling, and all sorts of other sports. I have been a member of National Ski Patrol for 5 years, and I love to ski the Summit at Snoqualmie. (Though nothing compares to Whistler Blackcomb or Big White!)


In my free time (of which I have very little) I can be found reading sports and political biographies, grilling on my deck, or hanging out watching the Golf Channel.

Nice Honest Lawyer
My son was arrested and we reached out to George Freeman I spoke to George on the phone and he came across as very caring person and it was and my gut instinct told me he was honest. My son had been arrested and we had no idea where to turn or what to do next. George spoke with me at length and we agreed to a payment schedule that worked with our budget. I highly recommend George for your criminal defence.

Excellent Attorney!
I had a case which I never thought I would have in my life. I had all sorts of emotions as I was getting ready for a career that if this case didn’t go my way it would hurt me in my future. When I contacted Mr. Freeman and his team they told me the process of what to expect during the start to finish. This helped calm me down as I had no idea what to expect. Mr. Freeman from the start told me great things I liked to hear but was also honest and told me the truth and some things I didn’t want to hear but were important. Mr. Freeman and his team worked very hard to get the case to go in my favor which in the end it did. I love Mr. Freeman and his team they are very hard working and communicating and will try to get the case to go in your favor. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Freeman and his team as they will do the best they can. Mr. Freeman is very knowledgeable in his work and looks at both sides and will help you win! Definitely hire Mr. Freeman for your case!

A true advocate
George truly puts “advocate” in “legal representation.” My family was recently named in a suit regarding a motor vehicle accident, and when our insurer repeatedly refused to settle with the plaintiff, we approached George for counsel. He immediately put me at ease. He explained the process clearly and mapped out the likely outcomes. He subsequently worked with the plaintiff and our insurer to make sure our interests were properly represented. Best of all, he was always responsive to our phone calls and emails, and whenever another thick pile of legal documents full of dire warnings from the plaintiff arrived at our doorstep, George was available to explain their significance and help us keep some perspective. If you’re looking for a legal representative who is really on your side, I highly recommend George Freeman.

Such a pleasure to work with!
I hired George after working with another attorney on our family law case. I had gotten strict temporary orders but it cost me a fortune! After a year went by with no movement in our case, I reached out to George for advice and decided to meet him and hired him. George got me an even more detailed and stricter parenting plan and got me attorney fees! He was able to see all the games the other parent was playing with me and put him foot down many times. George is very friendly and tough in the courtroom when needed! He was a pleasure to work with! He was always honest about how things could go and he made me feel so confident going into court. I am forever thankful that I met George and his team because they helped put to rest a long drawn out custody and visitation matter, and for all the work they did compared to my previous attorney, their fees were completely reasonable! I will be using him again for any legal issues I may have.

Great Lawyer!
George fought my case for over a year and he's a very knowledgeable person when it comes to fighting an insurance company for you. First time meeting will give you a run down on the process. And pretty quick at responding to emails and phone calls. Also he's a very generous person. Overall a grade A lawyer and will fight every step of the way. Definitely one of the best in Snohomish.

Excellant Attorney and Staff
Mr. Freeman and his staff helped me through a difficult divorce and child support issue. Even though the outcomes were not always what we wanted, George and his staff continued to work with me and the family court system until a fair outcome was finally achieved. I have recommended George to many friends and will use him if I am ever in a need of legal services in the future.

Great Colleague
George has been a mentor and colleague for years. His ability to analyze facts and make them understandable is outstanding. His logic in arguments is therefore flawless. His ability to strategize a case takes into account logic, psychology, finances, individual clients and everything else. George is both highly intelligent and a truly decent person.

George Freeman handled our sons car accident case. He is a very personable and friendly person who handled our case very well. He was always just a phone call away if you needed him for something or just needed some reassuring. He works very quickly and is very good about explaining everything in a way that you can understand. I hope we never have another accident like this in our lives but if we did he would be the one that we would go to for help.

Attorney with Integrity!
After wasting 2 years with another attorney, I was referred to Mr. Freeman by one of my clients. At my free consultation, I explained the circumstnces surrounding my auto accident and the injuries that i had sustained. He was very straight forward with my options, and the possible outcome. The best decision I have ever made was to retain Mr. Freeman to represent me. With his help, I was able to get the medical treatment that I still needed and a fair settlement. Mr. Freeman and his staff were easy to work with and always available to answer my questions. I have since referred a few friends to Mr Freeman and have had great feedback from them. Thank you George Freeman for caring about your clients and working hard for us!

Very Trustworthy and Informative
I got a call from a supposed bill collector that was threatening to take me to court and press criminal charges against me on an old closed bank account. I freaked out and told Mr. Freeman everything. He did some research and found out I was being hustled. He faxed some forms to the "bill collector" and we never heard from them again. This took a huge amount of stress off of me and I cant thank Mr. Freeman enough!

Thanks George!
I had a traffic ticket and George helped me get it dismissed. Thanks to him, my insurance didn't go up. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family!

Great Advice!
Ran into some landlord tenant issues regarding solid waste backing up into my apartment. Contacted George for some legal advice. He was very helpful, answered my questions directly and asked me to follow up with him once I had some form of resolution with my issue. Even with the follow up he seemed to genuinely care about my situation and wanted me to know that he was very concerned with my issue.

He is also a rare blend of a superior legal mind and essential pragmatist that is consistently focused on results. As a bonus, he is simply a beautiful human being and wonderful man, which makes him a pleasure to deal with on every level. It would be impossible for me to give George a stronger recommendation. We currently refer all of Skagit County, Island County, and Whatcom County family law work to him. I highly recommend George and his team."
