Biography

George has practiced family law exclusively since 1989. Since 1996, he has been certified by the State Bar Board of Legal Specialization as a Specialist in Family Law. He promotes the peaceful resolution of the conflicts inherent in divorce, guided by the principle: “Protect your Children; Preserve your Assets”. His practice is limited to consensual dispute resolution. George is rated “A/V (Preeminent)” by Martindale-Hubbell, an independent organization that rates lawyers’ ethical standards and professional ability, based on peer review, for nearly 120 years and rated “Superb” at Avvo.com, an independent service with ratings by both clients and other professionals. Since 2005, he has been identified as a “Super Lawyer” in Northern California by Super Lawyers, an independent service rating lawyers’ professional achievement.

Since the early 1990s, George has had an active mediation and Collaborative Divorce practice. He was one of the first recipients of the prestigious “Eureka Award” given to those who “have made significant contributions and demonstrated an abiding dedication to establishing and sustaining Collaborative Practice in California”. He was a member of the founding Board of Directors of CP Cal and has served as its President, Vice-President, and Secretary.

He is a charter member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and is a former co-chair of its Standards Committee that drafted world-wide ethical and practice standards for practitioners, trainers, and trainings in Collaborative Practice.

Since 1998, he has led over 2,500 hours of workshops, seminars, and training courses in Collaborative Practice to more than 1,500 professionals from North America, Australia, Europe, South America, Asia, and the Middle East.

George graduated with honors from Princeton University and received his JD from Stanford Law School.
