Co-founder and Owner of Haines & Krieger
Las Vegas has been hit harder financially than any other city in the United States – and because of the recession, the downturn in the real estate market, and unemployment rates – bankruptcies, foreclosures and short sales are occurring at a staggering rate.
Fortunately, George Haines has the experience & knowledge to combat this, and has helped thousands of people in Las Vegas get out from under their current financial situation and move on with their lives. An experienced consumer bankruptcy lawyer, and an expert in foreclosure solutions and debt & credit management, George is co-founder and owner of Haines and Krieger in Las Vegas.
George was heavily influenced by his father. George’s father started and ran a very successful insurance agency for over 20 years, as well as a successful manufacturing business that’s still going strong long after he passed away. He taught George how crucial it was to provide and serve each and every one of his clients, from the large corporation to the individual trying to make it through tough times. George has implemented these ideals into his every day practice.
“Our clients may have similar problems, but that does not mean they should be treated the same”, Haines often says. “Problems affect people in different ways, and every single client deserves an individualized approach to solving their problems. I’m committed to pulling out all the stops necessary to save people from what is in many cases, unimaginable hardships that could turn their entire lives upside down.”
“I often litigate and negotiate complex cases against large mortgage companies, and I feel this is one of my fortes,” he says. “The mortgage aspect comes into play because most contested matters in a bankruptcy revolve around a client losing a home or a car. For most individuals, this is their most valuable asset or investment, so the clients and the mortgage companies are more willing to litigate.”
During his 12-year career as one of the leading consumer bankruptcy and debt relief lawyers in Las Vegas, George has worked on several large cases for high-profile clients, but, he emphasizes, every single case and every single client is equally important to him.
“There are just so many situations where good people are simply victims of circumstance, and this job allows me to stick up for the ‘little guy’ and fight large corporations in court,” Haines points out. “I love being able to make a positive impact on people, get them back on track, and turn their lives around.”
“In other areas of the law, you are sometimes a ‘good’ guy and other times you are a ‘bad’ guy,” Haines says. “But with bankruptcy, foreclosure solutions, debt consolidation, and credit repair, we help people in need, people who are fighting big business and could never win if it were not for the help of an expert consumer attorney. That’s why, as a debt relief and bankruptcy lawyer in Las Vegas, I am always the ‘good’ guy, and I help people through extremely tough times, and that’s a very gratifying feeling.”
“Thank You! George, you don’t know how grateful we are, you came through for us and won’t forget it. We didn’t know what we were going to do, you are a good man!!! Again, thanks so very, very much.” Charles K., North Las Vega
