A successful sales and business career turned into a reliable legal career

Before law school, George led a sales and business career for over 10 years. While attending law school, George was a special paralegal for the Massachusetts Department of Correction and a law clerk for the Haymond Law firm and Bacon / Wilson P.C.

He became a member of the Western New England Law Review, wrote an article published by the University of California Business Law Journal and earned his degree with honors.

After passing his first bar, George was an Associate with Hendel & Collins, P.C., a Massachusetts firm with a focus on bankruptcy / insolvency, before starting his own practice with a focus on bankruptcy, debt collection abuse, defamation, identity theft remedies, and litigation. George’s practice has blossomed with a expansion to central and eastern Massachusetts.
