Trustworthy Advocate
Geoff is always very responsive and gives you an accurate representataion of the status of your case. He always keeps you informed of changes and advises you of the "pros and cons" before you make a decision. I would highly recommend him to anyone who had a workers compensation case.

Could not be happier with service being provided
While my case may still be open I have to say that the time and attentiveness that has been given to me by Mr Hillsberg and his Administrative Assistant has been far more than superior. The wonderful team that Mr Hillsberg had created is amazing. On some days I can send an email and have a response instantly and others it is no more than a few hours as Mr Hillsberg may be in court, but rest assure you will be contacted within the same day. Mr Hillsberg and his Administrative Assistant; Wendi, have been an amazing support system to me and continue to educate and keep me informed of the Workers Compensation process and what to expect in the future. I am very happy with my choice for representation for my claim and have the utmost trust and confidence in his firm.

Great Lawyer for Workers Compensation
From day one Geoff kept me well informed of how my case was going. He is very experienced in workers comp law and knew the proper steps to take in every part of my case. He always called me back very promptly if I had any questions. I couldn’t have had a better Lawyer in my opinion. I would highly recommend him to family and to anyone who needs an experienced WC Lawyer.

Successful resolution: compassionate and capable team
I contacted Mr Hilsberg after sustaining a life changing injury at work for consultation with the aim to understand my rights. As my employer provided excellent support for medical care and transportation, Mr Hilsberg explained Pennsylvania's worker's compensation laws and process and we agreed to keep in touch over the years of my recovery. Once I needed legal support to address issues, I hired Mr Hilsberg to represent me. He communicated on my behalf for over a year, kept me informed, discussed options and clearly explained each step of the case: deposition, hearing, settlement. We recently achieved a satisfactory settlement and it was the only time Mr. Hilsberg was paid for all the support he provided me over the years at no cost. He and his staff made a personally difficult situation much easier for me and I highly recommend his office.

Five Stars is NOT enough for Geoffrey Hillberg
Reading the first few reviews for Geoffrey and Melissa, I have to agree with everything said. Knowing they deal with several clients a day, They always made me feel like I was the only client. His attentiveness is remarkable! He never made me feel uncomfortable when it came to something I didn't understand. He would take the time to make sure I did. I can't thank him enough for that alone. I had a consultation with one lawyer before meeting Geoffrey. That lawyer made me feel awkward and that he was more about himself than the concerns with me. Within the first few minutes speaking with Geoffrey, I knew he was very concerned with me and my well being . He ever called me when I was hospitalized with legitimate concern. (not case related) If you are looking for a lawyer that WILL do everything he can, tell you how it is, be fully honest and make you feel its all about you? Geoffrey Hillsburg is who you want! I will never be able to Thankyou enough Geoffrey and Melissa for EVERYTHING you have done for me!!

Professional and Approachable Workers Compensation Attorney
Geoff is a knowledgeable attorney who worked diligently with me to resolve my workers compensation claim. There was not a single question that I ever asked that he was not able to answer. I grew to trust his advice explicitly and I knew that he always had my best interest at heart. I do not hesitate to recommend him.

Geoffrey Hillsberg, Esq is my #1 choice of a Lawyer.
I met Mr. Geoffrey Hillsberg Esq, in 2008 after my unfortunate accident at my work. This was my first accident ever. I was in a lot pain, confused, and stuck treating with the company doctor. This was the worst three months my entire life! I then started having problems with my job and I was dismissed after 15 years of service. I decided to seek professional legal help. Contact with Mr. Hillsberg and his professional staff was crucial to me and helped to save my life and sanity. Mr. Geoffrey Hillsberg, was always available to help me to deal and cope with my health and legal issues. He was always very clear with all explanations and was easy to communicate with and to reach by phone. I was kept informed throughout and he explained everything as it was going on. His professional knowledge and high experience were splendid! The Quality of his service was very high and remarkable. During those 3 very difficult for me years, Mr. Hillsberg was always on my side, always helpful, always on time. I was very happy with his representation. Mr. Hillsberg went with me to several court hearings and meetings with lawyers representing my former employer and insurance company. Thanks to Mr. Hillsberg all of them were very successful!!!! If you ever have any work related accident or any problem with your employer or insurance company, I highly recommended that you contact Mr. Hillsberg. Schedule your visit and ask for representation. I can promise that you will be happy, you will avoid many mistakes, headaches, and worry about what is coming your way next. Thank you Mr. Hillsberg for your very knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and very human help. If, I will ever need professional legal help, Geoffrey Hillsberg, Esq will be my #1 choice of a Lawyer.

Amazingly informed
Geoffrey gave the most informed and understandable consultation I ever had. And I am an attorney. So THAT and the five star review speaks for itself. Thank you so much for being patient and understanding and ensuring the complex information being communicated was thoroughly understood. Highly recommended, especially for those, like me, who have always been intimidated by the unknown. After you leave his offices, you will definitely have a much better understanding. (BTW the staff is just as compassionate and understanding).
