MAGGIE GEORGE, ESQ.
Attorney & Counselor at Law
444 South Washington Ave.
Royal Oak, MI 48067
For Maggie George, practicing law merges two unlikely qualities: being creative and a love for rules. “The areas of law I practice in are exercises in solving puzzles. The puzzle is figuring out how to take these rules and make it work for my client in order to get him or her the best possible outcome. I love the task of finding creative solutions within the parameters of the law.
She comes from a diverse professional background that includes working for Congress on Capitol Hill, in Washington DC; and many years of employment with a Fortune 500 company as a Director of Training. “When I met my husband, who is also an attorney, he helped me realize that practicing law would really allow me to grow my strengths and work on the things I am passionate about, which is helping people be seen beyond whatever obstacle they might be facing.”
At Wayne State University Law School, Maggie chose to focus her studies on the areas of criminal law, defamation, and contracts.
Cases at George Law are handled by multiple attorneys and staff members to ensure that creative problem-solving and sharing of ideas takes place for each client. “That means multiple brains are bringing strategies, knowledge and experience to the table in each client’s case, to ensure we’re making the right decisions and using the best methods to get the results we want,” Maggie says. “This collaborative method is used for EVERY CLIENT, which is why we don’t accept every case that comes through our door. We want to continue to stay focused on attention to detail, client objectives, and on high-quality guidance for every client. I am grateful to work with such a professional, high-performing team that likes strategizing together.”
