George’s client had no criminal record but was being charged with illegally carrying a firearm, and if convicted it would be a mandatory 18-month jail sentence. The client was traveling in the early morning hours and his car was involved in a single car accident, resulting in heavy damage when it tipped over on its side. While preparing to tow the car way, the police found a loaded handgun in the car, and immediately charged George’s client with the crime. George was able to convince a jury utilizing DNA evidence, fingerprint evidence and a less than thorough police investigation that the evidence against his client was far too speculative to earn a conviction. The jury returned a not guilty verdict in a short period of time.
In this matter the client was charged with six different charges emanating from a domestic situation. Two of the charges were extremely serious, one of which may have cost the client custody of his young child. George was able to point out significant inconsistencies in the account of the story told by the complaining witness by calling several witnesses to the stand that the prosecutor desired to leave out. A thorough investigation and effective trial management led to a not guilty verdict on all six counts.
George’s client was charged with illegal possession of ammunition and a conviction would have led to a potential lengthy period of incarceration. George strategically filed a motion to suppress the discovery of the ammunition in the car. Effective cross examination of the arresting state trooper as to his motivations and approach to conducting the search of his client’s automobile, using the troopers own body worn camera as documentary evidence, was successful. The Judge who heard the matter granted the motion to suppress. Winning this motion effectively ended the case causing it to be dismissed.
In this matter the client, a female in her early 20s, was charged with carrying a firearm. Two friends told the police they found it in her purse and turned it into police. It was a very serious charge as it carries an 18-month mandatory minimum sentence in the House of Correction. George filed a motion to dismiss challenging the probable cause presented. The manner that firearm was allegedly found and reported did not meet the threshold to hold George’s client responsible. A fair and thoughtful Judge heard the motions, took it under advisement, and ultimately dismissed the charge. Using the pre-trial process to lessen exposure is a successful criminal defense strategy.
The client faced three charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon due to an alleged stabbing. The evidence was not good for the client, including statements he made and very graphic pictures of the injured victim and blood smeared over the scene. George tried to negotiate a fair plea, but the Commonwealth would not agree to anything short of incarceration. George put forth a tentative plea with the knowledge he would take the case to trial as opposed to agreeing to jail time. George was not only able to convince the Judge to require no jail time, the client was only sentenced to administrative probation with no other conditions.
In January 2023 George represented a member of the Massachusetts Republican State Committee who had been illegally removed from the Committee by the then and now former Chairman for his own political interests. George filed suit in Middlesex Superior Court on behalf of the removed member, and obtained an injunction ordering she be restored to the Committee.
George takes thoughtful and unique approaches to criminal matters. The following article appeared recently in a local newspaper police log:
1:51 a.m.: An officer patrolling on XXXX Street spotted a vehicle stopped diagonally across a lane. The officer looked inside the 2008 Honda Accord and saw a woman asleep behind the wheel with the engine running. Police woke her and officers detected a strong odor of alcohol from her breath. A half-full bottle of tequila was found in the center arm rest of the rear passenger seat. The woman admitted to drinking before getting behind the wheel. She did not pass three field sobriety tests. XXXX, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and was cited for obstructing the roadway.
At first glance this looks like an impossible case, but George took the time and effort to understand all the facts. After a jury trial, the client in question was found not guilty on all counts.
George's client was charged with domestic assault and battery. His girlfriend who was making the allegations was insistent on bringing him to trial and testifying agains him. George's client wa found not guilty after a trial which clearly exposed inconsistencies and outright contradictions of the complaining witness on cross examination.
George is not afraid to take on big institutions represented by big law firms. George represented an elderly client against a nationally known bank. The bank had promised in court to pay the client nearly $50,000. They reneged on the promise and for months the client was unable to find anyone to help him. When he found George he found the help he needed. George settled the case and obtained a significant sum for the client.
George's client was being sued in conjunction with an automobile accident. The insurance company was refusing to cover them. George forced the insurance company to pay for the defense costs, settled the case for a very reasonable amount, and got the insurance company to participate in the settlement.
The client's employer, a Massachusetts municipality, was refusing to pay workers compensation despite the fact the client was injured at work. The client was unable to work and the employer had made the client use their own benefits for over one year. George attempted to negotiate a reasonable solution. He was unsuccessful and filed a case with the Department of Industrial Accidents. The administrative judge ordered the municipality to pay the client a weekly benefit.
