Attorney George Barron, Esq.: Honest, hard work. That’s what my parents taught me. And that’s what it takes to stand up to the powerful and win.
For the last decade, I have been practicing law, helping good people in Northeastern Pennsylvania fight back and get the justice that they deserve. In that time, I have helped hundreds of people and amassed excellent legal experience.
But in many ways the experience I had before I became a lawyer is more important. Before and during college, I worked in factories, gas stations, retail stores, schools, and restaurants. I was the first in my family to go to college, and I worked my way through – working full-time and attending classes full-time.
After college I worked in social services as a counselor and a guidance counselor. I helped to bring union representation to my workplace. I worked my way through law school as a musician and as a law clerk.
I don’t come from a powerful family and I don’t belong to any country clubs. I am not “connected” to the powerful people, governments and corporations, and I am not afraid of them either. I know what it means to struggle. I know how to work hard and I know the value of hard work. I am passionate about my job – to empower people like you, help you understand your rights, and help you stand up and fight.
