George Roland is a criminal defense lawyer who lives and offices in Denton, Texas. His entire practice is devoted to criminal defense. He has experience on a wide range of criminal charges, from murder to hybrid first degree felony drug charges, to misdemeanor drug and assaultive offenses. He is an aggressive advocate for people accused of crimes, and will fight to defend you from the State.
George comes from a family of criminal defense lawyers, and has always been an advocate for, and defender of, those in need. He has handled hundreds of criminal cases, and devotes his entire practice to criminal defense law. Former clients have praised George’s work, and the personal attention he provides.
George primarily focuses on felony and misdemeanor drug charges, and the unique set of legal issues related to drug charges. George is currently a member of the Drug Policy Alliance, and other organizations devoted to drug law reform and treatment (not incarceration) for drug offenders. He understands that defending drug charges requires attention to multiple factors, both legal and personal.
He received his Bachelor’s degree from Southwest Texas State University (Texas State University now), his masters from University of North Texas, and his juris doctorate from Texas Wesleyan (now Texas A&M School of Law.)
In 2014, he was a recipient of the Hal Jackson Award for “superior accomplishment…in the promotion of justice through law”; has been published in Voice for the Defense; and has given talks on defending drug cases. He is a member of the Denton County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and has been since 2011.
George still believes the best assessment of a criminal lawyer’s ability is performance and word of mouth.
