If you are in need of a lawyer, DO NOT HIRE Kurt Geishauser. Honestly I do not know how he even obtained a certification to practice law. He is a disgrace to the legal justice system and he is soiling the reputation of Emmanuel Dimitriou. I hired him as a criminal defense lawyer for a case that I was charged with crimes I did not commit and Kurt assured me that everything was going to be okay. Everything was not okay as he kept making continuances and feeding me lies and excuses. The ratings he got on Yahoo.com are all 110% true. He never returns your calls and he always shows up to court late. Every time I called his office, the receptionist says that he isn't in his office and would asked me for my number for him to call me back. He never does. Even when I don't call him he does not update me on the status of my case. I receive no response. He waits until the court appearance to tell me and makes an excuse saying that he doesn't find out stuff until last minute. As a lawyer you are supposed to keep your client well informed on the case status. So the only way you can catch him is if you walk into his office. I remember one time I was meeting with him and he had a client who was calling and such and he had told his receptionist to tell the client to stop calling him otherwise he would not work on the client's case anymore. What kind of lawyer does that? Yes it is good that he is in great relations with the District Attorney and Judge, but keep in mind that's not always a good thing. I rather would have hired someone off the street than hire Kurt Geishauser. He is better off being a public defender than a private attorney.

Kurt handled several criminal cases of mine about 3 years back. He was professional, personable, trustworthy, and effective. He also came to consult with me at berks county jail while I was incarcerated for a technical probation violation. This obviously really meant a lot to me. He also came in with me to see my p.o. at a time I was worried about another violation. I hope I never need his services again but it is comforting to me knowing that he is my lawyer.

I met Kurt through mid-penn legal. He told me he would help me with extending my protection from abuse order. Before my hearing I got in contact with him to assure that he was still with me on my case or if I needed to look elsewhere. He told me he was indeed taking care of it. Then the day of my hearing he DID NOT EVEN SHOW UP. Would not answer his phone, nothing. I can understand not wanting to do charity work, but the least he could have done was tell me the truth and say he wouldn't take care of the case for me.

Retained Kurt for my 2 DUI arrests. He was referred to me by my financial lawyer. He took great care in understanding my case. He was at every court date including sentencing, and kept me well informed about my case and options I could take. He also helped me with Penndot so I could keep my license from being immediately suspended so I could finish my community service. I would recommend his services.
