Highly recommended for difficult divorce cases
Dave Geis represented me in a very difficult and acrimonious divorce case. He was able to negotiate a satisfactory resolution when I didn’t think anyone could. I was very satisfied with the results, and I highly recommend his services. Dave and his staff are very helpful and responsive.
