If we could have given more stars we would have!!
Geffrey Gismondi saved our business! we had a mediocre lawyer before we found Geffrey we lost all hope in saving our company after a business partner left the company we were att our witts end and preparing to close the doors. We called Geffrey explained our situation and he had answers we never even thought of. Infact he went into the books and found several things that helped our case and im telling you we ended up closing a deal and did not have to give up our business, and for a fraction of what we thought we were going to pay . If you are having any business issues and thinking about calling, pick up the phone and call. If we didnt we would have lost every thing. If you currently have a lawyer but think he or she is not doing enough to help you Call Geffrey he will. I truly understand how you feel. Geffrey has a true in depth understanding of business law. Lets just say that the business partner who left the company hired 3 big leagu Lawyers and Geffrey was confident to handle all of them on his own and he did it with great success and ease!! dont even hessitate!!

Geffrey is straight forward, honest, and hard working. He takes his work seriously with the highest level of excellence. No one ever wants to have to look for a attorney. I needed help and searched around and found Geffrey. One of his greatest qualities is his ability to listen. Most people don't like attorneys because they feel all they want to do is take their money without many results. He is top notch and will work to come up with a solution. He is very conscientious!

review of Geffrey Gismondi
Mr. Gismondi was assigned my case after I thought it was stalled and could go no further. Mr. Gismondi immediately began to get the wheels in motion. He gave my wife and me the hope that we actually had a chance to win. He is very determined as a attorney. He kept us informed on a regular basis and made your firm feel like you really cared about us as people. He is a stand up guy and coming from me that means a lot.

Motion to Dismiss - Very Satisfied
Geffrey represented me in Supreme Court with regards to a Motion to Dismiss. He addressed both plaintiff and defendant sides of the case and was outstandingly thorough in his argument, resulting in a successful and favorable decision on my behalf.

Great Experience
I came to HoganWillig with a litigation issue and Geff was my lawyer. From the first meeting Geff was professional and went over step by step what to expect and laid out a plan to deal with this issue. Geff was in constant contact with me throughout the whole process and every time I had a question or concern he would respond immediately with a phone call, email or face to face meeting. During this entire stressful period Geff and everyone at HoganWillig were extremely understanding and helpful with every phase of my case. In the end everything turned out better than I could have hoped and would highly recommend Geff and the law firm of HoganWillig

Thank You
Mr. Gismondi was hired for our case and has been a pleasure to be working with. Mr. Gismondi uses logistics and fundamental reasoning as a valuable resource. He articulates himself very well and listens when you are speaking to him. What Mr. Gismondi really did at the end of the day was give my family and I a voice. A voice that was able to litigate our case with resolve and conviction. I would recommend Mr. Gismondi as a Lawyer for anyone in need. Thank you Mr. Gismondi for everything you have done for my family and I.

Exceptional, personable, informative and efficient
I think anyone that would use Geffrey Gismondi would be pleased with the choice. His dedication to his clients and immediate understanding of what the litigation we were involved with was formidable. I would recommend Geffrey every time and suggest you call for an assessment of your case and how he would represent you. I am sure you will understand my comments.

Very Knowledgeable and Professional Attorney - 5 Stars!
Mr. Gismondi has been more than successful on the two occasions where he has represented me in traffic matters. On the first occasion, he was able to get my traffic ticket completely dismissed and on the other, my traffic ticket was reduced to a small, manageable fee in the form of a parking ticket. After consulting with Mr. Gismondi regarding these matters, it became evident that he has considerable experience within the courts and an immense knowledge of the law. Needless to say, I felt absolutely confident that he would pull through with a favorable result for me from the first meeting.

Helpful for a Canadian looking for traffic assistance in NY
Geffrey was very helpful in helping me understand my options after I received an offence in NY on my way from Toronto to watch the Buffalo Bills play a game. He patiently explained my options and worked with me through to a resolution. He was very clear and knowledgeable on the implications of a Canadian receiving a ticket in NY and how it would affect me back home. My sincere thanks to him for his help and I would highly encourage anybody in the same situation as I was in to give him a call.

Happily resolved out of state traffic ticket
I found Jeff a trustworthy lawyer and he delivered what he promissed. However it did take some time but for the substantial alleged crime it was very satisfying. Keep on rocking Jeff !
