I should have done this long ago, but something just came up in life that prompted me to recall what an amazing experience I had with Geoff. I got myself in a tough situation, and felt totally overwhelmed. Geoff walked me though each step, explained everything that made no sense to me, and fought as hard as he could for me. He was completely professional the whole way through. I was extremely fortunate with the outcome of my case, and I'm not sure that the stars would have aligned without Geoff's guidance and skills. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody!

I am a first time DUI offender. I got arrested for this DUI in Tukwila, WA and it was a terrible situation for me. Upon being arrested and brought into the police department my anxiety and nerves were getting to me, but it was very apparent that the officer did not specifically explain the implied consent warnings correctly; she paraphrased, I asked a questions and showed confusion, and then after all of that I received a refusal for additional breath testing! I thought I already took a breath test on the side of the road, but this was not the official test. I did not know this and she did not clarify. Regardless, this was a huge shock for me because I was nothing but compliant.
I looked for a lawyer in the area, found Geoff's website, and saw all of the fantastic reviews so I knew he would be the most beneficial to my situation. I explained to him that I was in the Seattle area for a limited amount of time (because I am from out of state) and he scheduled a free consultation within 2 days of our first call. During the consultation, I explained my situation and he seemed very confident in his abilities; he was also very honest with all possible outcomes. He told me exactly what I needed to do to appease the court, where I could complete these tasks, and other actions that would eventually happen. He walked me through the process the entire way.
Since my schedule with work is constantly changing and I am from out of state, Geoff was more than conscientious about trying to move around meetings and calls. In fact, he was able to get the court to allow the arraignment and pretrial on the same day simply because it was better for my schedule.
Within 2 months of the incident, this whole horrifying experience was over. Geoff provided more than enough information and evidence that the refusal should be dismissed, which then dismissed 1 year of license revocation. That was such a huge weight off my shoulders!
I seriously recommend Geoffrey Burg because he works for you, he legitimately cares if you were wronged, and if you are at fault he works extremely hard at trying to get your sentence lessened!

Geoffrey Burg represented me on a Dui case which was not my first one. He is a very realistic upfront and honest man. Follows through and gives you a very comforting feeling that you are in the right hands when it comes to a highly stressful situation like a dui. The outcome of my case Was more than I could've ever hoped for. two years after my court date the dol decided they would re suspend my license. I got ahold of Geoff and tommorow I get my interlock removed and my license is reinstated. Have no idea how this happened other than I had Geoff in my corner. I would recommend and highly suggest you call Geoff burg if you are accused of dui. Not only was he my lawyer but also consider him a friend.

I went to a couple lawyers before I met Geoff, he was the third lawyer I've met after my d.u.i. he was calm collective, and always smiling, so my instinct told me,"I should choose him" so I did , and let enough brought my d.u.i to a reckless. I'm happy for that. Even though he's a busy guy, he always responds back the next day. Overall,SPECTACULAR lawyer, and definetly learned my lesson.

Geoff represented me in a DUI case where I blew under the legal limit. Throughout the process I was continually asking him questions about what the possible outcomes were, what options I had, and how the courts were set up. With each worry Geoff would give me a full, straight answer that helped calm my nerves. It was obvious by his interactions in court that he is a well respected and friendly figure in the court system. I found Geoff to be very knowledgeable of the individual judges and prosecutors that were involved and I appreciated his candidness on some of these subjects. Overall, Geoff helped me to ravel up my DUI in a way that had as little impact on my everyday life as possible and so I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking representation.

Mr. Burg is an outstanding lawyer. I have just finished my case today which was reduced all thanks to Mr. Burg. He is very knowledgable about D.U.I.'s and answered every one of my questions. He was even able to accommodate the special circumstances of my case and put in the extra time in order to understand the full situation. Mr. Burg is a very friendly guy and will do all he can in order to get the outcome that you want. I would recommend this lawyer a hundred times over.

I feel so fortunate that a coworker recommended Geoff to me. When I was arrested for my DUI I was scared and had no idea what to do. I went to see Geoff and after meeting with him for an hour knew he was the guy for the job. This was the first time I was arrested and the first time dealing with the legal system and the courts. Geoff made it as stressfree as possible. I was unaware of the process and he explained everything to me so that I understood what was happening. At my arraignment Geoff was able to successfully affidavit the judge we wanted, since my case was a refusal and he knew which judge was more likely to suppress a refusal and therefor give me a better position in my case and have my fines and penalties lowered were I to lose my case. Next was my DOL hearing, Geoff dealt with it all and I didn't have to worry about dealing with that aspect of the DUI Being arrested in Washington means you have a case with the DOL and with the Washington State District Courts. I already felt like I had enough on my plate and Geoff made me worry as little as possible throughout both cases. Then I had my motions hearing and the Geoff came very prepared to argue our case and we were able to get the refusal suppressed, so already we had accomplished a huge victory! This allowed him to appeal my license suspension from the DOL, which was very good news. No deal was made with the prosecution, so we went to trial. Geoff was very knowledgeable of what we wanted in a jury and the selection of the jury went well and we were able to agree upon who we knew we didn't want on the jury. He made me feel included in the process and the decisions while offering informed advice and guidance. I felt Geoff fought hard for my case in the trial and offered a very strong and compelling argument to the jury and made excellent points without dragging on forever, he was very concise and well spoken, which I appreciated. I ended up testifying in my case, and Geoff was able to guide me through this and asked great questions that helped the jury see my side of the story. In the end, we were victorious and the jury came back with a verdict of Not Guilty! I couldn't have asked for better results or for a better lawyer. He really made the process feel as painless as possible and he got me the results I wanted, what more could you want. You won't be disappointed if you pick Geoff, he's knowledgeable about the law, about the justice system and the judges, and clearly has lots of experience with DUI cases and was great to work with! Thanks Geoff!

With respect to DUI defense,I highly recommend the Law Firm of Geoffrey Burg in Downtown Seattle. In August of 2014 I received a DUI. I was recommended to Geoffrey Burg from an attorney friend that recently retired. My friend was one of the best DUI defense attorneys in Seattle. My case was very complex and took tremendous patience, guidance,and knowledge. Geoffrey was absolutely the very best attorney I could have asked for in all areas. Additionally, Nandi Moonflower his legal assistant was exceptional to work with. She assisted me when she could, followed up with emails on every action taken, and was always pleasurable to work with. You will be happy you chose the Law Firm of Geoffrey Burg!
