An attorney with three decades of experience in the practice of bankruptcy, commercial, and civil litigation, George Mitris leads one of the largest bankruptcy filers in the Rochester, New York, area and across the Western District. As a seasoned litigator with a background in commercial litigation who has represented both creditors and debtors in state and federal courts, he brings valuable insight, experience, and a unique dual perspective to serve his clients in all matters of bankruptcy and commercial law.
Though he leads one of the area’s most successful law firms, he believes that personal touch is important. He personally meets with clients and works closely with them to find solutions that best serve them. “I’ve been doing this since my clerking days in 1984. When you’re doing something for that long, you gain certain sensitivities and wisdom and take a different approach,” he explains.
George began his career as an attorney with a commercial litigation law firm in Syracuse. However, his dedication to community compelled him to move back to his hometown of Rochester several years later and open his own practice as a sole practitioner in 1991, where he serves people in Monroe and surrounding counties, focusing on the local population that needs his services or debt protection. “Serving a local community, you become rooted in that community. A lot of our business is through word-of-mouth and our clients become an extended family. It may be corny, but it’s a source of pride.”
George received his law degree from Syracuse University College of Law in 1986 and was admitted to the bar the following year. He also holds a tax law degree, which allows him to serve clients with tax issues.
