About George Xamplas
I believe success starts and ends with knowing who I represent, why I am representing them, and what it is we are up against. To me, this means more than just the facts-it means understanding the person-top to bottom, inside and out. My clients come from all walks of life and all different socio-economic circles, from Fortune 100 CEOs to person's living in Chicago's homeless shelters. But one thing they all share is the need for help and the need to be heard.
Born and raised in Chicagoland and growing up working in my family's small businesses, I learned fist hand the important life lessons of hard work and the vital need to listen and be fully engaged with the client. Add to this the fact that my formal education, anchored in science and the law, is as varied as it comes, I provide personal and professional legal services that meet and exceed my diverse clientele's highest expectations.
My practice is international. I have successfully represented clients from six continents on matters ranging from litigation to real estate and have experienced an enormous amount of legal issues over my career. However, the most important thing I have learned is that behind each and every case is an unique individual whose backgrounds and life experiences must be fully considered and taken into account when I work on their case.
I take this wholistic approach with each and every file. It allows me to see and consider solutions that others may not even imagine. I win because I think outside of the box; I think outside of the box because I listen to my client. I listen because it is necessary-our diversity demands it.
What's my goal? To get deals done. Nothing more. Many lawyers are notorious for 'killing' deals due to their overzealous representation of their clients. They tend to bog down negotiations with unnecessary arguments and take stubborn positions. Not me.
As a Yale University graduate and accomplished soccer player, I was very accustomed to high pressure situations. So, when it came time to decide on a professional career, I did not shy away from the challenge of practicing law or the responsibilities of representing clientele all across the country.
I believe litigation is the last option. If possible, I always first calmly seek affable compromise in any dispute. But when compromise fails, I strike and strike hard to achieve my client's goals.
