What our clients say
"He laid out persuasive legal arguments with great skill, so we were well satisfied. Since I had a 60-year career as a trial lawyer in New York, I think I was in a position to judge his performance. To cap this positive experience off, we won, so if I ever again have a legal matter in New Mexico, I would definitely call George."
"George has many great qualities as an attorney and as a person in general. I would highly recommend him to my family and close friends as I place complete trust in his competence. His strong analytical skills, knowledge, and strong persona allowed me to process my situation in a way that I would not have been able to do on my own."
