George's Practice Areas

George has established a reputation as one of the Capital District’s most well-known and respected real estate and transactional attorneys. He was principal at Kerr Slingerland deVoe, P.C. before coming to O’Connell and Aronowitz as an integral part of the expansion our Residential Real Estate department.

Home buyers, sellers and developers of real estate, as well as mortgage lenders, deserve a very high level of service and advocacy from their lawyer, and that’s what George seeks to provide to every client in every matter. Our law office handles both real estate transactional matters and civil litigation, including breach of contract, boundary/title disputes, and tax exemption cases. Our transactional clients include both first-time home buyers and experienced developers, tax-exempt charitable organizations and Fortune 500 lenders.

George is active in the community volunteering and fundraising for various autism programs including the Autism Society of America. He also donates time to Jack’s Place and The Boy and Girls Club.
