I worked with Geoff on a complex probate matter. As sometimes happens, the family just could not agree and the decedent just did not give her counsel a decent chance to draft a complete estate plan dealing with estate taxes, small businesses, a surviving spouse and children. Those left behind had to fill in the blanks. Geoff was a big help in keeping the parties together and at the table so that we were able to resolve that matter. I would definitely recommend him to the public looking for legal services.
