He received his Bachelor’s degree from Texas State University, his masters from the University of North Texas, and his juris doctorate from Texas Wesleyan School of Law. George is a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association , and has been since 2011.
Former clients have praised George’s work, and the personal attention he provides. George believes that you should be able to get in contact with your lawyer any time—not just during usual business hours.
George primarily focuses on felony and misdemeanor drug charges, and the unique set of legal issues related to drug charges. He is a member of the Drug Policy Alliance and other organizations that advocate for drug law reform. He believes that rehabilitation and treatment are more important than imprisonment, and that addressing the underlying substance abuse problem can effectively remove a person from the criminal justice system forever.
In 2014, he received the Hal Jackson Award for superior accomplishment in the promotion of justice through law. He has been published in Voice for the Defense . He has been invited to speak on defending drug cases numerous times.
However, George still believes the best assessment of a criminal lawyer’s ability is performance and word of mouth.
