Client Comments

"We enjoy working with George. He is a skilled attorney and a truly nice person. He is responsive to our claims adjusters and supportive with our insured providers. George goes above and beyond his defense work with us by presenting educational programs to our hospital and medical staff (our physicians now plan educational sessions around George's schedule). He is currently writing an article for our newsletter. We are very pleased to be able to work with such a dedicated and personable professional."

"George has become very active in the defense of our care providers over the past two years, which has already resulted in several excellent outcomes and a consistent quality work product on all pending cases. I attribute this to a number of factors. First and foremost, George brings a wealth of knowledge, ability, and talent to the defense of a medical malpractice lawsuit. He puts a great deal of emphasis on the need for a team effort with both members of my department and the parties that he has been retained to defend. He is a creative litigator who is not hesitant to think outside the box in developing a defense strategy. George consistently implements into his case handling the procedures and guidelines that we have put in place, and, equally importantly, he does so not as just an act of compliance, but as yet another way to enhance the defense of his clients. His work is thorough, reflecting a keen sense for the detail, yet he is able to communicate with an effective blending of the specific and the overview. Finally, George approaches his relationship with us, and I am sure with all his clients, as a long term, mutually beneficial one. When appropriate, he does not hesitate to advise me on the benefits of an early resolution. Yet, once a decision is made to take a firm defense posture, he is always well prepared to do so and then proceeds to do so effectively. George is clearly one of the finest defense attorneys that I have worked with over the past 30 years."
