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 in Hartford, Connecticut and Bacon/Wilson P.C. in Springfield, Massachusetts.
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 (Massachusetts), George was an Associate with Hendel & Collins, P.C., a Massachusetts firm with a focus on bankruptcy/ insolvency. He then passed his second bar (Connecticut) and started his own practice in civil litigation with a focus on defamation and first amendment issues. George’s practice has expanded to most of Massachusetts and Connecticut.
