The Law Offices of Joseph C. George, Ph.D., Inc. were established in 1986. Joseph C. George was originally trained as a psychologist, and is both a licensed attorney and licensed psychologist in California. After completing an internship in clinical psychology, Joseph C. George commenced to fulfill an obligation to the United States Air Force. He was assigned, as a psychologist, to David Grant Medical Center, Travis Air Force Base, California. While at Travis, he earned his law degree at McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, in Sacramento, California, in 1985. He was a comment staff writer and assistant editor for the Pacific Law Journal at McGeorge and authored an article proposing a mandatory reporting law for incidents of psychotherapist-patient sex. Subsequently, after earning his law degree and fulfilling his obligation to the Air Force, he served as a member of the California Senate Task Force on Psychotherapist-Patient Sexual Relationships, and authored Civil Code 43.93, which imposes liability on psychotherapists for sexual contact with a current patient and with a former patient for up to two years following termination of the psychotherapist-patient relationship.

The focus of the law practice initially was limited to mental health malpractice, clergy abuse and sexual abuse. The practice has expanded to include cases involving significant damage from automobile accidents, traumatic brain injuries, elder abuse, sexual harassment, and wrongful death.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
