George Stanley Finley (11/12/1927 - 12/31/2016)

George Finley practiced with Snodgrass, Smith, Rose and Finley (presently Smith, Rose, Finley), from 1960 until his passing on 12/31/2016.

George’s law career was well-marked, and he had a reputation in West Texas as having a way with the jurors who were captivated by his simple presentation, beat-up old pickup truck and change that would often fall from his pocket during closing arguments. He served as Tom Green Count Bar President from 1966-1967 and was Director of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel for two terms. He was board certified in Personal Injury and Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. George was a fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation and of the American College of Trial Lawyers - something that he often called one of his greatest achievements because he was elected by his peers.

George had a master sense of humor, a wit that was simply unmatched, and a brilliant mind that kept us all listening. We only wished we had a little more.
