John George represented me in a child custody modification proceeding. Mr, George was very professional and well prepared. He always presented my case well in court during the various hearings that were held. The entire office staff was also very professional and courteous. If ever I had a question to be answered, Mr. George always promptly returned my calls and emails. Overall, my experience was very positive considering that it was a difficult and emotionally draining situation. The entire office always made me feel at ease that the matter was being handled diligently. I recommend anyone who is looking to hire a family law attorney in North Idaho to give Palmer George & Taylor a call.

John George handled the custody situation of my son. He was fantastic. He was supportive all the way through the process, and explained everything to me, in English so I understood! He is amazingly quick with his responses via email. I had dealt with other attorney offices prior to hiring John and got very frustrated with lack of communication. It was amazing to me how the other offices had no problems sending bills, but couldn't figure out how to communicate about my case. I have to say, everyone that I worked with in John's office, either knew what was going on with my case, or within a minute or two, knew and always had correct answers for me. I highly recommend Palmer George and Taylor, you won't be sorry.

Great experience with Mr. Palmer! Truly does his work to get some juices. He drastically helped reduce my husbands DUI that he did not deserve. Highly recommend him as you lawyer!John George handled the custody situation of my son. He was fantastic.

I recently hired Michael P. to help me with my firearms restoration case. He was excellent! He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and efficient! He was highly composed in the courtroom, which you cannot say about many attorneys out there. Finally, he was very responsive to my phone calls and requests, and his rates were very fair and reasonable. Although my case was dealing with criminal law, I was also recently involved in a very heated child custody battle with another attorney and I would recommend Mr. P. to my family and closest friends for any criminal or family law proceedings no matter the size or severity.

Michael Palmer is amazing in the court room!

Mr. George and his staff are consummate professionals. My dealings tgere have been nothing short of what I paid for. Still waiting to see the outcome of a highly contested custody/divorce, but am hopeful. Will update after.

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 anyone.read 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 you.read more

We don't all anticipate having matters occur in life that require legal matters, but life happens. Samantha was respectful and professional beyond what I could have asked for or imagined.

I couldn't have asked for better support and representation. I would recommend Samantha and her amazing paralegal, Kristy, to all!read 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 enough.read 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 experience.read 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, Inc.read more

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 George.read 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 basis.read 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 case.read more
