In my case, a first time DUI, I sought out representation that offered a straightforward, honest voice and demonstrated capability in this unique and difficult area of law. Everything you find on Tim’s website is “the real deal.” (Read the books–they help immensely!)… They answer calls, emails and countless questions… You will understand what will happen to you throughout the entire legal process. And most importantly, Tim and his team really do stick with you through the entire affair…

– Dan, October 2017

It was a dark day when I found out that my husband was arrested for DUI… I was scared that he would be sent to prison…That is when Tim George came to the rescue. He was aggressive in court [and] he got the DUI dropped completely… I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.
