George In a Nutshell

I am a strategist for a number of big law firms.

I didn't start out in aviation. It's something I grew into, after working shoulder to shoulder with lawyers for the past 45 years. I don't want to overwhelm you with the list, but I have been doing this a long time, and it is a long list. I have worked small cases, huge cases, wrongful death cases, product liability cases, pharmaceutical cases, train crashes, bus crashes, ship injuries and many others, including of course, aviation cases. In fact, in the past 30 months or so, I have consulted and/or been involved in over 30 air tragedies involving airliners, helicopters, single engine dual engine aircraft.

When a client lawyer of mine is contacted about a foreign crash, they call me.

When a foreign lawyer, or family or family association, or a source outside of the United States needs me, they find me, they call me. I can't tell you how many times an overwhelmed family member has fled from the insurer's negotiating table and called me.

That's when I get on the plane.

I consult with my aviation lawyers about what may be a possible U. S. case. Sometimes the case does not fit US criteria and at that point, if the client has hired us, we team up with local lawyers who are licensed to practice law in that particular country. Either way the family will benefit either here in the United States, or by having our aviation experience move the case along in the country of origin. I go to the scene, meet the families. I get teams on the ground, for communicating, for researching, for coordinating with clients, for handling meetings, for coordinating press teams, for dealing with issues as they come up.

Lawyers pay me for my strategy and for my experience. Lawyers do a lot, but they can't do everything or be everywhere at the same time. Sometimes I am the bridge.When logistics prevent immediate meetings, I am the clients' immediate bridge to the lawyers or the lawyers' immediate bridge to the clients.

So they hire me to help, to advise, to support the client, to intermediate between clients and/or partnering firms, whether the case goes to the U.S., or my client lawyers are retained to empower the local lawyer with the benefit of their extensive experience in aviation.

Client confidentiality is crucial. And I only can discuss what my lawyers tell me is available for public consumption. But I am up front about what I do. If you have a question, ask me. I'll answer you.
