Professional Experience

  • Construction: George’s construction experience provides him with a depth of understanding about the construction process and jobsite realities that most attorneys who practice in this area do not possess. Acting as lead counsel, George has successfully represented his clients in both commercial and residential construction matters involving construction defects, delay claims, mechanic’s lien and stop notice claims, Miller Bond claims, extra work claims, indemnity claims and construction-related insurance coverage disputes.
  • Real Estate: A significant portion of George’s practice also involves representing and advising property owners and property management companies. For over 12 years, George has acted as general counsel to FPI Management, Inc., the 12th largest property management company in the nation and the largest management company in California. He routinely handles matters that include premises liability, commercial and residential lease drafting and disputes, real estate non-disclosure, landlord/tenant disputes, ADA and Fair Housing compliance, habitability claims, mold contamination, discrimination and property management policies and procedures.
  • Insurance Coverage – Policyholder Representation: George is at the forefront of representing insurance policyholders in disputes with their insurance companies. George often acts as independent/Cumis counsel for policy holders when the insurance company’s reservation of rights entitles the insured to select its own attorney at the expense of the insurer
