Criminal Defense Client Reviews

  • "I contacted Tim during a difficult time in my life. I was pulled over and charged with a DUI (thankfully no collisions, property damage or the like). I started researching lawyers in the area, and it became clear that there was a gold standard: Purchase Murphey and George. Tim personally consulted with me over the phone, sending my comprehensive packages of material to read up on what exactly I was being charged with, and what my options were. I live outside of Pennsylvania, but Tim and his office acted as an essential liaison between the police/court system and myself. We didn't miss a beat, and the process moved smoothly."

  • "I chose Atty. George based on his stellar reputation and record in helping with criminal defense. My situation was handled just as I had hoped. Tim was very responsive to my needs, was very clear with my options and very specific about what would happen next. Tim and his staff were very very responsive and that is something you do not see these days. They took every question I raised and answered them quickly and thoroughly and I was never once wondering when I would hear back from either Atty. George or his staff. I would highly recommend Atty. Tim George and I would definitely use his services again in the future."

  • "I hired Tim as my attorney to get my criminal record expunged of two charges (harassment and assault) from 2007. He did a great job explaining the process and what was required of me. His support staff was also extremely helpful and responded to all my concerns promptly. I was so happy and relieved when I found out my petition was granted! Tim did an excellent job and I would recommend his services to anyone in a similar situation."

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
