History

Oxley Law Office was founded in August of 1948 by George “Garver” Oxley, Esquire. Garver was born in January 1919. He attended Findlay College for which he swam and played football, lettering in both. Garver then played football for the Detroit Lions for a short period and began law school (interrupted by his service in World War II). During his long career (of almost 50 years) he was Justice of the Peace for Hancock County, ran for State Senate, and was Hancock County Prosecutor for many years. Garver continued in the private practice of law, primarily in the areas of civil defense and trial work. Garver Oxley died in 1997.
