Secure in my choice of Geoffrey Hood
I needed a great lawyer and Geoffrey Hood came highly recommended. He is very well respected by the judicial system on all sides. I hired him on 4 separate occasions in the past several years to represent me on issues that could have had long term personal and financial consequences. He explained what was expected of me in every case, how we would respond and he continued to keep me informed during the case. Most importantly he was successful. The recommdations were sterling and I agree so I'm happy he is currently my attorney. Thank you Geoff for all you do!

A wonderful first impression!
I have just hired Geoff to represent me in my case and I would like to point out my experience so far. I originally had a different attorney for this case and to make a long story short, from the start, I felt that there was something off about my previous representation. We were at my pre-trial conference and I was ridden with anxiety and panic as I felt that my attorney, in a nutshell, had not provided me with any effort regarding every aspect so far with my case. Before my case number was called I felt as though the decision that was basically forced upon me, I was not confident with. I wanted to ask another attorney in the building questions regarding my option in that moment. I ran around the court house in a panic, even down to the public defenders office, where no one could help me then and there, and was trying to pull any attorney I ran into, to the side to quickly answer a couple questions that I was in dire need of the answers to. No one would help me! I was almost out of time but a gentleman I sat next to was being represented by Geoff and admittingly, I was sort of listening to him speak to his client. I thought to myself that I wish my attorney knew what he was talking about like this one does! I honestly followed him out of the room and when he was finished speaking with his client, I approached him and asked if I could ask him a couple questions! Now most attorneys, at no fault of their own, are busy busy and truly don’t really have a second to sit down with someone who has not hired them, however, Geoff agreed without any hesitation, even though he was very busy as well! I was so pleasantly shocked when he sat down with me! At that point, I knew that I wanted my attorney to withdraw and I wanted to hire Geoff! I knew that Geoff was not only a seasoned and sharp attorney, but I could tell that he was a good person within. His kind and genuine character shined through and I am so overly happy and relieved to be able to have him represent me from now on! This is the type of person you want as your attorney! Someone you can feel confident in, that you know will work to his best ability to try and produce the BEST outcome for his clients, possible, and on top of that, an honest and genuine person who is fair and will provide you with financial options, if necessary! Again, I am looking forward to working with him more then ever and I am finally not completely horrified to face what the future may hold with the outcome of this case! I know that I am in the BEST hands!! Thank you Geoff!!!

Very helpful!
Mr. Hood helped us a lot with our son's case. We spoke on the phone and he explained very clearly what our options were. He handled all of the paperwork for us. He also met with us before court and explained what he was going to try to negotiate for our son. He was able to get the ticket reduced to a violation that did not include a license suspension. He was very professional and answered all of our questions. We were very pleased with the results that Mr. Hood achieved for us and were very grateful. We would absolutely recommend him to a friend.

Used Geoffrey Hood Twice
Geoffery Hood, Esq. is a great trial attorney. He works hard and thinks on his feet to make sure you don't even have to go to trial. My first case was totally dismissed before trial which saved me points and a big fine. Second case was reduced to a non-point traffic citation. Both were situations where I was wrongly accused. Without Geoffrey Hood, Esq. I could be looking at points and higher auto insurance rates for years to come. Can't say enough good things about Geoffrey Hood, Esq.

Recommendation
Geoff is a competent, experienced and knowledgeable attorney that I would recommend to anyone in need. He is familiar with all aspects of criminal proceedings the entire way through the process and will relay all pertinent information plainly to his client. He also gives his clientele sound advice on what to do pretrial to put them in the best position for a minimum sentence. It was a pleasure to be represented by Geoff and I'd recommend him to my friends, family or strangers.

Excellent lawyer
Geoff was extremely helpful with both my case and separate issues with my son. In the case of my son there were several none charged phone conversations including offers of FREE counseling to him to help get his life together. He is a knowledgeable, compassionate lawyer who's heart is in the right place . I can strongly recommend him for whatever your situation may be.

I am grateful to have met both you and your son during this process. It is great to see how your son has transformed his life and is on the right track. As for your situation, I am glad we were able to get you into the ARD program. A hard-working guy, such as yourself, deserved a break like that. Enjoy retirement in Las Vegas and I will be sure to look you up when I make a trip out. -Geoff

Great Lawyer
Geoffrey was very informative and kept me up to speed with what was happening with my case. Whenever I had questions he would return my calls promptly and never kept me hanging wondering what next. At one point I wasn't able to speak on my behalf and he kept my family up to speed with information regarding my case and next steps. My mom was very pleased with his service as well.

A lawyer with a HEART
Mr. Hood was great from day one. He went to the prison to see someone before he was even our lawyer. And he is very understanding compared to other lawyers i spoke with that didnt care about how tight money is eell at least for us and he took a little down and will allow us to make payments even after the case is resolved. He really does care. Thank you Geoffrey. We look forward to the months ahead now knowing we have a stand up honest caring representation with Geoffrey Hood. If you need a great lawyer you found him.

ARD program for my son
Geoff was very helpful throughout the whole process of my son's charges, court appearances and entering the ARD program. He provided information in regards to each phase of the process. My son was accepted to the ARD program and 60 hrs of community service. Geoff got involved with some of the bumps along the way with PennDot and the license suspension along with the hours for Community Service. I would definitely recommend him if you or one of your children need help with DUI or any other type of legal issues. He was very professional and available when we had questions.

Thank You Geoffrey Hood.
Geoffrey Hood was certainly the best decision I made for choosing a lawyer. From the start he made it clear what the next upcoming months would be like and what I would have to do. He was always upfront with me and never ceased communicating with me. I knew I was in a serious situation and having Mr. Hood on my side made it easier to deal with in the beginning. If you need someone to represent you then look no further than Geoffrey Hood.
