I was raised in Palm Beach County, Florida and graduated from the University of Florida as an undergraduate and from its law school with honors. I have been practicing law since 1982. I have two daughters , one attending college at the University of Florida and the other recently moved home to finish college at Florida Atlantic University. I own my home in the south end of West Palm Beach and live there with my cat and dog.
My main interests are and have been raising my family, boating, water sports, photography, reading, cooking and travelling. I try to take my kids to some exothic place once a year.
I much enjoy the practice of law, especially personal injury. It mkes me feel good to help other people through their difficult times.

Having known and referred cases to Geoffrey for more than 25 years, I without hesitation or reservation highly endorse him for his knowledge, his effectiveness in court (where he's highly respected by judges and attorneys), and most of all, both his compassion for his clients and his passion in pursuing their interests. My practice is limited to criminal defense, and thus I'm frequently asked for referrals to a civil lawyer. Of the many folks I've sent Geoffrey's way, none have ever indicated anything but absolute satisfaction and appreciation for my referral.
