J. Timothy George: Attorney with Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. AV stamp icon
Attorney Awards


Tim was called to active duty for one year in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2009 and continues to serve as an Army lawyer holding the rank of Major. He says, "Young Soldiers leaving their families behind have lots of questions, want information, and battle fear of the unknown much like our clients who have never been involved in the civil or criminal justice system. For most Soldiers, it was their first war. For many of our clients, it's your first time facing criminal charges or the first time you were hurt in a car or truck accident. You want - and deserve - answers to your questions and time to work through your options. You also want the best results possible. We help you do that at Purchase & George, P.C."

What others think about us. After returning from Iraq, Tim formed Purchase & George, P.C. in 2010 with Eric Purchase. Both lawyers are rated 10/10 by Avvo and AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest lawyer rating company in the country. Both also are recognized as Super Lawyers, an independent service using a patented selection process used to identify outstanding lawyers in particular practice areas. However, lawyer ratings are only one factor that you should consider when selecting a lawyer for you and your case. Other factors include what other clients say (check out our reviews) and whether after meeting a lawyer you feel like he or she listens to you, understands your concerns, and whether he or she is a "good fit" for you and your case.
