A trusted Beaufort, SC attorney!
I reached out to Christopher Geier for help with a traffic violation while traveling in South Carolina. Feeling victimized by a rural speed trap, and worrying how my insurance might be impacted, Mr. Geier advised me of my options with clarity. The outcome was successful. He is personable, business-like, and has a great sense of humor. In addition, he gave me some great information on touring around Beaufort. He is a great find.

Speeding Ticket
Excellent service from Mr. Geier! I contacted him very late concerning a speeding ticket in Yemassee, SC. He handled everything in a very professional manner. He was very clear on my options and was able to come to a satisfactory outcome! I would highly recommend him in the future!

Beginning to End: Noteworthy Service
I was on my way back from a trip for our 50th wedding anniversary and was going with the traffic flow and did not realize that the speed limit had been reduced due to a work zone. Thus, out of luck, received a traffic ticket for $890. I found Chris online and he truly took care of me from the beginning to the end. He explained to me very clearly the options and prepared me for the best and the worst. Thankfully, in our situation with help of Chris, it was the best! I feel extremely honored to have Chris represent us and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer with the highest integrity.

Responsive, Efficient, and Buttoned Up
I do not live in the State of SC and I hired Chris for a traffic violation that I received driving while on vacation in South Carolina in order to minimize the impact of transferred points to my State. He was clear from the start what he would try to do, what he probably could or could not accomplish, and let me know the outcome (which was exactly what he initially indicated) within hours of the hearing. The court made a subsequent mistake reporting the violation to my State which I only recognized a year after the ticket and Chris went right back to the court (without requesting additional fee) and was able to get them to acknowledge and re-report the actual violation to my State DMV.
