George started the firm with his late father, Vasilios Choulos (1927-2003), and childhood best friend, Claude Wyle, in 1982. Seeing the impact his father made as a trial lawyer, George wanted to follow in his footsteps to be able to help those in need; being a lawyer offered the opportunity to improve the lives of people going through difficult situations and often when dealing with tragedy.
Driven. Safety-oriented. Doesn’t shy away from difficult cases. Sees opportunities for justice and fights for the underdog.

All relationships are important to George, whether he’s working with a client, potential client, someone in need of advice or a fellow lawyer. He works directly with his clients, giving them the personal service and attention they deserve.
“The most satisfying thing about being a lawyer is making a difference in my clients’ lives.”

His reputation for being a good and successful attorney is reinforced through his actions and attention to detail for every client he represents and when working with others.
George is fluent in French as well as English.
One of the things that motivates George is being able to give a voice to those who, without his help, wouldn’t be heard or get the best results in a settlement. Giving people a chance at a better life is extremely rewarding and humbling, and pushes him to keep doing what he does.
George also has a passion for creating change, shown through his and the firm’s dedication to fighting for the safety of people who choose alternative forms of transportation, including pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. His beliefs, the environmental benefits of these alternatives, and being an avid cyclist and motorcyclist, give him an edge and enthusiasm for this area of law; he understands the situation on a personal level, as well as the regulations and rights when representing those injured while taking one of these other forms of transportation.
As a lecturer for various legal associations, George’s professional accomplishments and recognition allow him to share his knowledge and experience with others in his field.

He also regularly attends educational seminars to continue to improve himself and refine his skills, then applying it to the work he loves. George is determined to always provide the best service he can, which is why it’s important to him to stay current and continue his education.
