George V. Saylor, III

Attorney Manistee, MI

What can 35+ years of practicing law provide? For me, a perspective on what unfamiliar and stressful circumstances mean for a client. I find it incredibly rewarding to spend an hour meeting with a client and then have them tell me how appreciative they are that a weight has been lifted. That’s a great feeling.

Outside the practice of law, I enjoy outdoor sports, traveling, and community service. In my hometown of Manistee, volunteering, for me, is a way of life. When local organizations are looking for people to provide time and energy, or even join their board of directors, I am happy to oblige.
