Prior to establishing his own successful law practice over ten years ago, George Christopoulos gained valuable experience in the legal profession working for several reputable law firms. He credits the comprehensive knowledge that he obtained working as a senior associate at Goetz Fitzpatrick, LLP and at Dreifuss, Bonacci and Parker, LLC with laying the foundation and giving him the insight to start his own practice.
George graduated from Seton Hall University with a B.A. in political science and went on to receive his J.D. from Widener University School of Law-Delaware. After graduating from law school, he served as law clerk for the Honorable M. Allan Vogelson, Presiding Civil Judge Superior Court of New Jersey - Camden County. He then worked as an associate for the firm of Wells, Jaworski, Liebman & Paton, LLP, starting in 2001. In this role, he gained hands-on legal experience and exposure in the areas of civil litigation, real estate, and commercial transactions. When he transitioned into senior associate roles for two additional firms, George added corporate transactions, consumer fraud, construction-commercial litigation, and class action suits to his areas of expertise.
In 2008, utilizing his complex understanding of many areas of the law, George founded his own law practice, the Law Offices of George Christopoulos, PC. The firm is diverse and focuses on a number of areas including matrimony, family law, real estate, municipal court, DUI/DWI, motor vehicle accidents, personal injury as well as estate planning.
George is passionate about his role as an attorney and explains, “I emphasize individual client attention coupled with honest legal advice.” George is efficient, dedicated and honest while offering elite and personalized legal services at reasonable rates. As a result of George's professional services, he has acquired and continues to acquire clients predominantly from referrals.
George expends about seventy percent of his time at the office with the remaining time in court. As a result, he has been able to settle a large percentage of his cases, saving the clients time and money by avoiding protracted litigation when possible. However; when necessary George will not under any circumstances avoid trial if an adversary is unreasonable in their offer of settlement. George's unique ability in picking juries has routinely resulted in insurance companies cutting a substantial settlement check that far exceeds what they were offering prior to trial. His ability to settle cases at the 'courthouse steps' has saved his clients time and money that routinely results in large settlement checks.
George is also fluent in the Greek language. In addition to his professional accomplishments, in 2019, George was named a Lawyer of Distinction and was also named as one of the 10 Best Attorneys in New Jersey (2018 & 2019) by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys™. He is also a general member of the National College for DUI Defense.
