George McMullin has devoted more than 14 years to the representation of insurance carriers in prosecution of subrogation claims against responsible third-parties. This includes various practice areas such as tort liability, products liability, construction defects, subsidence litigation, materials failures, and fire spread litigation. One noteworthy recovery effort by George includes a lawsuit arising from a roof collapse at a mall, resulting in damages exceeding $4.6 million. Also adept at claim resolution, George resolved a claim involving glass panels during the cleaning of the exterior masonry, resulting in damages over $2.2 million. His experience encompasses a vast array of indemnity claims, disputes regarding hurricane losses, and heavy equipment claims. A Partner in the Dallas office, George is known for his depth of experience, responsiveness, and hard work.

George attributes his “roll-up-your-sleeves” work ethic to his family, especially his father who was a blue-collar worker who believed in working hard and getting it done right the first time. He inherited that same assiduousness, which became evident when he managed two restaurants in his early years. Through his managerial positions, George quickly learned how to work in a fast-paced environment, all while interacting with customers and putting their interests first. George has maintained that same dedication to his work today and seamlessly navigates his cases in such a way that prompts clients to commend his ability to provide information in a clear, straightforward way.

An effective and knowledgeable communicator, George regularly speaks at conferences and on webinars for the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) and the Property & Liability Resource Bureau (PLRB). An expert in his field, George has written over nine published articles on topics ranging from subrogation and automation to rules on fire scene negligence.

With a passion for hard work and a heart for giving, George channels his dedication outside of work through helping families with children on the autism spectrum. George and his family give back by donating and participating in autism awareness events around the Dallas and Ft. Worth areas. George knows that giving- no matter the magnitude- can make a profound impact on the lives of others.
