Mr. Michael Palmer represented my husband in a criminal case. My family and I thank Mr. Palmer and his team for representing our case and giving us hope for a brighter future. The outcome of the matter is outstanding. My husband was looking at 15-plus years; because of Mr. Palmer's professional knowledge of the law, my husband will only be serving the bare minimum. Throughout the stressful process, Mr. Palmer has always communicated with my husband and advised him on the next best step in the matter. If you are ever in need of a criminal attorney who will be in your corner every step of the way, you need Mr. Michael Palmer!read more

Michael Palmer represented my husband in a recent legal battle that went on for almost two years and threatened his freedom for a crime he did not commit. We went all the way to trial with his representation and reached a NOT guilty verdict. He is an extremely talented attorney that will fight for you.

My experience with Michael Palmer representing me was exactly what was needed at the time. He was always prepared, direct, and got results. This is what you want from an attorney. Michael provides it. He has a real-time library of legal knowledge to draw from in the form of personal experience. Though, any stressful situation presents its challenges and the client’s and attorney’s goals with the case may not always be the same, what matters is the unyielding professionalism and ability Michael always provided.During my selection process for legal representation, I’d spoken with another very fine and highly qualified attorney, Sean Walsh. Sean said that Michael Palmer is who he’d personally hire for a loved one, if given the same situation. After my case was completed, Sean’s words about Michael proved absolutely true.Amber, a member of the Palmer George team with whom worked on the case, was also always professional and objective and thoughtful. From my experience, I am entirely confident that everyone at Palmer George will continue to provide the utmost quality legal services to their clients. When it comes to an attorney, reputation is more

John George represented a family member of mine who was in a tricky situation of misunderstanding and unfortunate timing. John was efficient, knowledgeable, and thorough. He not only defended our family member and got the sentence dismissed, but he mentored and encouraged his client throughout the process in both the ways of law and of living a positive life. I would trust John with any legal defense for myself or anyone I care more

Michael Palmer demonstrated excellent communication and guidance. He effectively settled a case in a very favorable manner for an out of town client. In doing so, Mr. Palmer made a huge difference in a person's life while also being frugal with the retainer. You could ask for nothing more from an attorney. I recommend Michael Palmer without more

Without hesitation I would recommend John George in family law matters.Originally I had a consultation with him in preparation for a divorce. He was honest and fair, encouraging me to seek mediation as a first resort. Jump forward a few months and I reached back out to John regarding concerns around my exes judgement in dating a woman with an extensive criminal and drug use history. John was patient, understanding and kindly directive as I expressed my concerns and sought help. I cannot thank him enough for validating my concerns. Honestly I was initially worried that I would just be seen as a meddling ex-wife and experience a dismissive stance (my own worry). Again, John and his paralegal, Rachelle, were nothing but honest and helpful in filing a modification on my behalf. Now jump forward two weeks and my exes girlfriend has just been cited and arrested on two misdemeanors, one involving injury to a child. I am nothing but grateful for John George and the modification that prohibited this woman from being around our son!read more

John H. George, ESQ stepped in on my Daughters Interstate Child Support case and helped to achieve a fair ruling for my grandson's well being! John listened to my daughter when we were turned away by many NJ and many Idaho lawyers. He hears the people in matters not just the rustling of paperwork. There are too many gaps in the legal system that make it difficult at best for parents with children in different states than one of their parents. John knew exactly how to fill those gaps in the system and did his job above and beyond by reading over 600 documents, pulling together a team in his office to tackle the challenges, and he made significant headway in Sandpoint ID Courts on virtual attendance. John is not just an excellent lawyer would make a great Leader in the area of Interstate Child Support for our Nation, he is smart, he is current, he has the heart for it and above all he listens to his clients and can carry that forward to Justice! Thank you John for bringing some peace to our family!read more

His years of experience were evident in how he handled our case. His demeanor in and out of the courtroom was respectful and dignified. John is a very insightful attorney and knows the law. He was clear in his explanation of the court proceedings and that was helpful so there were no surprises for us. We would definitely recommend more

My parents and I hired Mr. Palmer 4 years ago to help with my legal situation, and all I can say is wow. Mr. Palmer fights and fights hard, he does what's in best interest of you as the client and is so good with his words when presenting, evidence, testimony, whatever that may be. His paralegal and him are also on top of everything. We constantly got emails with updates of my situation and what the next step is. He also never missed any court hearing which you would hope for in an attorney. I highly recommending going through this law office weather its with Mr. Palmer or Mr. George. Pleasant experience, once again Thank You Mr. Palmer!!!!read more

I hired John George after working with another lawyer for almost a year. What a difference! John was very knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. He was also very aggressive dealing with my case getting things done at a much greater pace than I had experienced before. His paralegal Rachelle was also great to work with. I felt that they actually cared and where working for me. Very different than my previous experience. We got more done in a month than I got done in nearly a year with my previous lawyer. I would highly recommend John George. I only wish I had hired him to begin more

I was highly impressed by the professionalism of John George and his assistant Rachelle. They assisted me in a modification of my child custody, and I would recommend them to anybody seeking help with family law. The preparation leading up to trial, as well as the actual trial went even better than I had hoped. Though the opposing attorney had a reputation of being "one of the best", I was beyond grateful to have John representing me. In comparison he was prepared, organized, factual, and professional, unlike the more

Michael Palmer, like Michael the archangel, is a fighter. He is an advocate you want by your side, whether you go to trial or in anything up to that point. His name carries weight. He can recognize, understand, and push against overreach and abuse of power when he sees it. He also has a good sense of humor and he listens to your concerns. We appreciate his staff as more

I hired Mike Palmer 7 months ago to be my attorney and I can't say enough great things about him. He litterly saved my life. He took his time looking into every piece of evidence and took the necessary steps to resolve my case using his knowledge of the law and his knowledge of my personal rights and how they were being violated. Mike was right from the start very honest with me and straight to the point. He didn't tell me what I wanted to hear... He told me the truth and what I should expect moving forward. He was always there's at every court date, and always able to be reached by phone or would soon after return the call. Although the process took some time if he is your attorney you can rest assured that he will see things through and justice will prevail. I would recommend Mike Paulmer to anyone in need of a criminal law lawyer without reservation. I am over the moon happy with everything he did for me and the outcome of my more

Mr. Palmer represented me very successfully during my DUI case. He and his paralegal Ms. Morris were incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. Some attorneys will try to sell you a better case than you truly have in order to get more hours out of you, but I felt that Mr. Palmer was straightforward and honest throughout in his representation of my case. The process as a whole was immensely less stressful as a result of their aid, and I would highly recommend their services to more

It's easy to see how Mr. Palmer has a 5 star rating. I am just so blown away by the service Mr. Palmer provided for me. I had worked with a half dozen other attorney's that were unable to help me find resolution. In a matter of a phone call he was able to give me the information I needed to move forward. He was polite, friendly, professional. His rates were the best around as well. I know there is a stigma when it comes to this line of work. I can promise that Palmer will shatter any predisposed opinions you may have of working with an attorney. You are doing yourself a disservice not using this firm. I wish nothing but the best for Mr. Palmer and his associates. If I could give a higher rating I would. Moving forward my family and I will be exclusively working with this firm I highly suggest you do the same. Thank you so much Palmer & George PLLC. I cannot express how eternally grateful I am to have worked with more

Let me tell you the truth! Mr. Palmer is a fairly quiet and humble man, who just so happens to know his #@it! And he brings his A-Game to the Courtroom too! You might think you are walking in next to Peter Pan, but when you walk out you will absolutely know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are standing next to "King Kong"!!! I kid you not! Trust me this guy knows what he is doing. He gave me all the angles, so that I knew what I was getting into and helped me to make all the right decisions. When I walked into the Courtroom I felt the weight of a hundred tons of lead hanging over my shoulders, and when I walked out, I honestly felt like I could fly!!! And he was half the price of the other guys too! All I can say is "Thank -You Mr. Palmer", you are my personal "Miracle Worker"!!!Dr Steven A DuCharmeread more

READ THIS!!! All I can say is this law firm is a blessing. It had been 4 months since I had seen my son. I couldn't even reach him by phone and he had been taken out of school. Hope literally seemed all but lost. I came to John George to see what he could help me through this family court jungle. He said he would do his best. I didn't realize how good his best was. He gave me the raw and honest truth that it would be an uphill battle to get visitation with my son but after doing my research I felt I was in the right place. I was literally running out of time and down to the wire to take action in my court case. His team masterfully responded with almost zero notice. They helped file a response and counter suit to the pending court action initiated by the other party. On step one, I felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders. On step two, I now felt like I had a clear plan of action and new what I needed to do to help this law firm help me. I was given clear expectations and a commitment by Mr. George and his team. In the end I was fortunate to receive a extremely favorable ruling from the judge. I went from getting 1 weekend per month with my son to half of the year. His mom had pulled him out of school, and George got him back into a regular school environment, so I could help monitor his school progress and participate in his life again. Its like I went from being a secondary parent to being a father again. John George helped the judge see through all the false accusations from the other party. It felt like so many wrongs had been made right! In the end I couldn't be happier with the way he handled the case. John listens and seemed like he knew exactly what he was doing. Hiring John George to handle my case was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was like a real blessing or a miracle. If I could describe my experience in just a few words, it would probably be... "if family law was kung-fu, John George would be a Grandmaster 4th degree Blackbelt". Don't waste your time with other attorneys. Don't waste your money on consultations just to see if they want to take your case. Go to the most professional and efficient Law Firm in the region. Thank You!!!!! John and Rachelle you guys are my heros. I can finally get back to life and my family again!!!! No Words can express how grateful I feel to the experience I just had working with you guys. If your a father or mother and someone that wants the best outcome possible for "your child" get ahold of John George. You wont regret it. Sincerely,Chrisread more

Definitely five stars. John George and his team have met every one of my expectations in two separate child custody cases now. In each case, that were years apart from each other, John accurately predicted and clearly explained how things would go and the expenses involved. Everything was handled in a prompt and professional manner from start to finish. John and Rachelle were there for me every step of the way with continuous communication through phone calls, emails, text and office meetings. While defending me in open court I have always felt safe, protected and well represented. John speaks with confidence and presents the details of the case in a calm collected manner that truly displays his years of experience and education in family law. The outcome of each case was better than I expected. Nothing but positive things to say and I can’t thank them more

My son and I went to John George for new parenting plan paperwork relating to my grandson. John was very professional and was able to negotiate with the other attorney several times before the court so he had reached an agreement with him on most every issue before the court. That made the court time go more smoothly and even though he did an amazing job in court , those early negotiations were able to give us almost every single thing we had asked for. His assistant also worked very hard to get everything in and to keep us informed. I would recommend John George to anyone who needs a good attorney that will fight for you!!read more

We actually chose here because they had great reviews for a relatively small business. I had called for a free consultation and had actually been able to make an appointment with Samantha Hammond. We had come from bonners ferry and chose to travel for a better experience. We left super early because there was traffic in four different areas and road construction. But we were still going to be late. I called and she said it was fine to just come in anyway. I figured we would lose part of our hour consultation anyway and would not be able to get much done. I actually wanted to turn around and go back I was so frustrated. We did end up arriving just a little late, she saw us almost immediately and made more time before starting her next appointment that I’m sure our session was running into. This wonderful woman sat down with us both, explained everything in detail and how it was going to go, then, when we decided we just wanted to do it and get it done, she brought in all the forms to make that possible, going over every last detail. She helped us complete the entire process when we were allotted just a consultation, and let us know exactly what to expect. It went exactly how she had told us, was completely painless, never went over her named price point and we had not one complication throughout this entire process. This business is amazing. And when Ms.Hanmond could not immediately address something, her very capable and efficient staff picked it right up. We had every notice, every change brought to our attention immediately and the entire process was so painless. I am so thankful we chose this business and would highly recommend it from personal more

I came to see Atty John George for a Separation Decree modification, as my ex-wife was egregiously violating my parental rights concerning time with my children due to a poorly worded decree. John talked with me on the initial free consult for well over an hour. I was very impressed with his demonstration of both strength and compassion, and retained his services. And on the Decree Mod we pushed hard for more time with the kids not subject to my wife's veto, child support, and spousal maintenance.My ex-responded by turning the Seperation Decree into a divorce. At first glance, I seemed totally outgunned: She was bankrolled by her well-off mother. She had a list of around a dozen witnesses who were all going to testify she was super-mom and I was an evil villain. I couldn't afford the thousands required for an Expert Witness to testify as to why I should gain full (or at least split) custody of my second daughter. Much of my evidence was deemed hearsay as the opposing attorney invoked strict rules of evidence. And I had but one (1) witness - her probation officer. Hah. Yet John created an extremely compelling picture as to why I should be given what I asked for with the evidence we had. This was done so well that it brought my ex to Remediation. In remediation, I received almost everything I asked for - more time with my boys, split-custody with my second daughter, and saved several hundred dollars a month as well. I really couldn't have asked for a better family law attorney, or for it to turn out so well - amicable, and a smooth transition for the children, as the only thing that really changed for them was more time with their dad. Which is awesome. I give my highest recommendations to Mr. George for any family law issue, and to his entire firm. You can retain John or his partners with absolute confidence (I've retained Mr. Palmer as well for criminal defense for my daughter, where he worked wonders for her). These guys are simply fantastic at what they do.Bryan HughesDigital Marketing Lead Adworkz, more

I would highly recommend Palmer/George Law firm. I needed someone to enforce a child custody order and not be emotionally compromised during litigations by the opposition. John took on my case and helped me out. If I had any questions, John or his staff would get back to me asap. Kristy and John have always been professional and helpful with anything I needed. You're in good hands more

I could go on for hours telling you about how amazing this Law Firm is. John and Rachelle are very helpful, and I couldn't ask for more wonderful people to work with. They help me through a really rough time of my life. I am very thankful for this place and these people.

Palmer George, PLLC is the most professional law firm in North Idaho, and possible the Pacific Northwest. The attorneys are unmatched in their knowledge of Criminal, Family, and Civil Law. Their staff is knowledgeable, professional, and treat everyone with dignity and respect. I have recently had a need for their services and was thoroughly pleased with their attention to detail, skills, and effectiveness. They do not seek to antagonize, but strive for positive results.In the course of my employment I have worked with over 25 attorneys in five different states and Canada, and Palmer George, PLLC is my first recommendation when I'm asked for a referral.Chris SullivanIntegrity Investigationsread more

After talking ro numorous people in Idaho to help with our custody case we hit a brick wall. Our attorney in Reno talked to John George and he decided to go far beyond our case and investigate our unique situation and decided he could help. He helped us through and won our case and didnt charge us an arm and leg to do it. The office support is wonderful also. The girls are very helpful. We will be using their law office again in the future. Thank you John more

I hired Michael G. Palmer of Palmer/George Law firm as my criminal attorney. In a criminal case it is important to establish a time line. Michael’s meticulous attention to detail did just that, allowing for a very congested mound of facts, figures, specifics, and hearsay to all be succinctly aligned to tell a story to the jury. He surrounds himself with a very skilled, efficient, tenacious staff and consultants, who will in turn, benefit you as the client. His staff’s courtroom preparation was spot on and Mr. Palmer’s professional interaction, clear communication to the jury, witness, and judge surpassed all expectations. One hears constant recommendations for him or her as a “good attorney,” but when it comes to Michael G. Palmer, he IS one of the top Criminal Lawyers in the state, and he proves it on a consistent more

Samantha Hammond recently represented me for a child custody case. She is a pleasure to work with. Sam listens well and remembered all of the details of the case. She made me feel comfortable throughout the whole difficult process. Sam radiates confidence and her gentle side made me feel safe when I was feeling vulnerable. Her presence next to me during court helped me feel grounded, more comfortable and reassured that I would make it through this painful process. I was so thankful to have her by my side. I highly recommend Samantha Hammond because she has not only the expertise to navigate the system, but the strength of heart to do the right thing. Sam truly enjoys helping people, and has chosen the perfect career to do so. I am very thankful for the time she spent working with me on my more

Mike Palmer is a defense attorney "force to be reckoned with"! Not only is he extremely professional, qualified and experienced, he also has an AMAZING and UNMATCHED presence and demeanor in a trial setting. I have a close friend who was falsely accused of a horrible crime and he and his staff handled the entire case as a real pro and got her an extremely fast acquittal from the jury. To quote my husband..."Watching him in the courtroom was mesmerizing....Mike was BORN to do this!" He is extremely intelligent and well-versed in the law. I highly recommend him! He is worth his weight in gold!read more

Michael Palmer is a fantastic lawyer and very knowledgeable in his profession. He fought hard to get me a fair deal and made me feel at ease with the whole court process. I highly recommend Michael Palmer if you want a lawyer with integrity that is not afraid to stand up for your rights.
