Biography

George Field brings hard-won skills in hundreds of trials, appeals, mediations, and arbitrations to his broad-ranging practice in dispute resolution and related legal advising.

Sought out for his practical and efficient approach to complicated problems, George has successfully represented businesses and individuals in:

George is also a mediator, trained and credentialed under Mass. Gen. Laws c. 233, sec. 23C and Rule 8 of the Supreme Judicial Court Rules of Dispute Resolution. He provides confidentiality protected by statute, in the mediation of all commercial, estate, probate and family disputes. As a practicing trial lawyer and business advisor with first-person experience in hundreds of disputes, George is well-equipped to help the parties analyze and resolve their differences.

George is an active member of the Bar in Florida as well as Massachusetts, and provides a full range of advice and referrals for clients with Florida interests and concerns.
