Owner and Managing Attorney of Freedom Law Firm
In the late 2000s, Southern Nevada was hit especially hard by the last Great Recession. The real estate market crashed, unemployment rates soared, there were a record number of bankruptcy filings and wages were stagnate. But, we made it through it and we learned how to survive in these types of downturns. Are we going to see something similar to the Great Recession in the coming months or years due to the Covid Pandemic?…… it’s tough to say, but if we do, we’ll get through it. In order to save homes, vehicles, feed families and pay living expenses, many may need to consider bankruptcy or other loss mitigation options. However, just like we did after the Great Recession, we will rebound and grow stronger.

He has helped thousands of people in Southern Nevada get out from under their current financial burdens and move on with their lives.

George believes it is crucial that his clients have an understanding of the legal process, that goals are discussed with his clients and that there is path to get his clients to where they want to go. “Our clients may have similar problems, but that does not mean they should be treated the same”, Haines often says. “Problems affect people in different ways, and every single client deserves an individualized approach to solving their problems. I am committed to pulling out all the stops necessary to save people from what is in many cases, unimaginable hardships that could turn their entire lives upside down. Ultimately, I judge myself by the success of our clients, not by the diplomas and certificates hanging on my wall”.

This is where George’s expertise in consumer bankruptcy, consumer litigation, loan modifications, foreclosure solutions, and credit management, comes into play. “I love being able to make a positive impact on people, get them back on track, and turn their lives around.
