Getting to Know You

George grew up outside of Philadelphia spending most of his youth playing baseball, basketball, football and almost any other activity involving a ball or goal. Being active in his early years equipped George with the competitive fire, energy and a work ethic that has enabled him to achieve success in athletics, in his career with a large corporation and as a courtroom advocate. Soon after marrying, George changed careers, deciding to go to law school to become a corporate lawyer.

At first, trying cases was an area of law which George had no interest in pursuing. Then, while a law student a trial attorney and professor convinced George to participate in simulated court proceedings. Ever since then he has been hooked on being in the courtroom trying cases. George was honored to serve as a law clerk overseeing cases and learning firsthand the nuances of litigation from prominent trial attorneys. After graduating near the top of his class, George spent years in courtrooms trying cases; first, defending clients from claims of negligence, and then advocating on behalf of the injured.

George finds the opportunity to speak for accident victims in and out of court very rewarding. His many years of experience in effectively dealing with people, preparing for and engaging in trials, together with a competitive fire provides George with an uncanny ability to effectively and consistently achieve excellent results.

George spends his time away from the office relaxing with his wife, Laura, his two children and dog Toby. He can often be found in his garage workshop building something special, tending to his vegetable garden or hiking and exploring the beautiful mountains and small towns of upstate New York and Pennsylvania. He loves the challenge of coaching sports, where he instills sportsmanship, commitment and teamwork. George is extremely passionate about history and is now hooked on the American Civil War.
