“Geoff is by far the best lawyer I’ve ever worked with. He’s obviously well respected and knows the community. He’s extremely good communicator; nearly always accessible or very prompt replies. He did an excellent job of setting reasonable expectations of what the process was, helping me get things done before the court forced me to, and listening to my specific concerns verses things I was more flexible on.”
