George T. Freeman began his legal career after graduating from the University of Washington with an undergraduate degree in Accounting. He began doing value cash-flow analysis, pension evaluations and other accounting calculations for attorneys. After a while, many of the attorneys told George that he should cross-train from accounting into law, as it occurred to them he had a knack for it.
After working as a paralegal for approximately 10 years, George began the Washington State Bar Association’s Law Clerk program, which allows individuals to clerk to the bar as opposed to attending law school. George was able to raise his family, earn a living, and continue his studies working for a variety of attorneys in many different law firms, giving him a very broad knowledge of many areas of law. His first loves are personal injury and insurance law.
George has won felony trials, and negotiated dismissals and reduced pleas for criminal cases. He has achieved verdicts and/or settlements of over $1,000,000 for clients involved in personal injury lawsuits. In his family law cases, he has helped many men and women through difficult, emotional situations by negotiating the best results possible with the goal to keep the process as painless as possible. Sometimes a trial is absolutely necessary, and George loves to be in the courtroom. Other cases can be easily settled outside of court, and George prefers to do so particularly when it will save his clients time, money, and hardship.
In his spare time George is a member of the National Ski Patrol, and has been skiing since his childhood in Upstate New York. He is absolutely addicted to golf, and can be found on the course most Saturday and Sunday mornings if the weather isn’t too rainy. George also enjoys scuba diving, boating, fishing, crabbing, traveling, and playing with his dogs. He puts on disc dog shows and competes with his dog friends Radar, Yam, Rickey, and soon his new addition, Arnold Palmer. Click here to read about the disc dogs.
