George is a seasoned attorney with substantial experience in a wide variety of legal matters, including corporate law, personal injury, criminal defense, and wills, trusts and estates. He has practiced in state and Federal courts in both Virginia and California, and has also successfully handled numerous arbitrations and mediations.

A New Jersey native, George graduated with honors from Rutgers University, where he studied Philosophy and Economics. He received his law degree, cum laude, from the University of San Diego School of Law. As a law student, George worked for U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns and as a teaching assistant for the law school’s legal research and writing program.

After receiving his law degree, George worked for several years at a prestigious civil litigation firm in Southern California, where had the privilege of representing large corporations and international businesses in multi-million dollar cases as well as small companies, entrepreneurs, and other individuals facing a variety of complex legal issues.

Hungry for increased autonomy and the opportunity to provide more personalized representation to individual clients, George sought out a small firm environment. Having also decided to relocate to the East Coast to be closer to family, George found Weisberg & Weisberg to be the perfect match for his skills and professional aspirations.

Outside of his legal practice, George enjoys racing and working on cars, playing the drums, and spending time with his wife Kristin and their two dogs Murray and Jette.
