Geoffrey just did A-Z estate planning for my family and we were very pleased with his firm. They met with us at our convenience and got everything squared away for us in a timely manner and before we left the country on vacation. Needless to say; we were able to relax even more on our vacation knowing that our family affairs are in order should anything happen. We absolutely recommend the Family First Firm to our friends, family, and anyone needing to plan for their families future. They made this experience about as easy and enjoyable as it can be.

My wife and I went to see Mr. Hoatson shortly after we got married to set up our estate plan. Geoff was very thorough in explaining our many options. As business owners, we really needed to get the right answers to the "what if" questions. What would happen to our business, our home, our assets!? After meeting with Mr. Hoatson, I am positive that we made one of the most important decisions. Setting up our estate with The Family First Firm. Thank you Geoff and Family First.

When my Father, a 90-year-old WWII veteran, indicated that, he was no longer able to manage his affairs I had to act quickly. I had never been privy to my Father’s finances or affairs until he asked for help. Furthermore, I live out of state. I was stressed handling this matter from afar. Luckily, Attorney Geoff Hoatson was recommended by my father’s longtime attorney as a specialist in Estate Planning. From the beginning, Geoff and his staff were clear, efficient, professional, and caring. Geoff and his staff worked quickly and offered solutions to issues I did not even know we had. He and his staff accommodated my schedule to ensure all matters were well attended. They are attentive to detail and responsive. I highly recommend Attorney Geoffrey Hoatson and The Family First Firm!

I came across Geoffrey and his team using avvo, one of my requirements was that the attorney had to be honest and I found that with Geoffrey. He and his team handled my case in very professional and diligent manner. I came to them towards the end of May 2015 to petition a divorce and by the third week of August 2015 I was officially divorced. His team was always available to me and answered any questions or concerns that I had in a timely manner. Very friendly staff and most important very honest, you won't be disappointed. If I ever come across any other legal issues Geoffrey and his team will be the first one's on my mind. Thank you Geoffrey and your wonderful staff for all your help.

I found Geoffrey and his team on Avvo, I was looking for a christian lawyer as it was a requirement of mine, I had read the reviews of the other clients and they seemed happy with his services. Geoffrey and his team worked diligently to get my case resolved as soon as possible and were always available to me whenever I had questions regarding my case. They say lawyers aren't the most honest people out there but if you decide to go with Geoffrey and his team you won't regret your decision. Thank you for all your help!

I have sent numerous clients to Geoff and I will continue to do so. It's a wonderful feeling when someone I refer calls me later and thanks me for introducing them to the person I referred them to. This has happened with Geoff more times than I can count. He is a solid family man and just as solid of an attorney. I'm privileged to call him a friend and I'm more privileged to call him a colleague as I consider him top shelf.

Geoff Hoatson is a very honest man, who won sugar coat anything. He will work hard for you and when times may feel hard and you feel like as if nothing is going anywhere Geoff will always come through. He took my situation from where I wasn't seeing my daughter only 1 day a month due to her mother withholding her from me and turned it into almost 50 percent time shared. I highly recommend Geoff and will change your situation as he did mine. It's not exactly over with my case, but with the amount of faith I have in him I know that everything will be alright. Thanks .

Geoff is an excellent attorney who is professional, insightful, and extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of the law. He always kept me updated and always answered my emails and/or phone calls in a timely manner. He gave me advice based on the boundaries of the law and took the time to clarify anything I might not have understood. Mr. Hoatson will continue to represent me through this process and if there is any other legal issue I have I will hire him to represent me and no one else.

Geoff represented me in a difficult family law dispute. He kept me informed and involved in the process and resolved the case favorably for me. We didn't even have to go to trial which saved me a bunch of money. Of course, if we had, I'm confident that he would have done well as he was always very well prepared.

Geoff was professional and to the point. Geoff took care of a probate case with my deceased father back in April 2013. The probate process is usually a flat fee. I had looked into pricing before meeting with Geoff. Geoff was a little more than the lowest bottom of the barrel price out there. Geoff stayed in contact with me by emails through the paper signing process. I finally got the final notice to pick up all the final paper work and it was done. Geoff told me a time frame for finished court papers and was super close on time. I believe you get what you pay for in life and Geoff was worth every penny. I'm glad I didn't go looking for the bottom of the barrel priced lawyers. I would recommend Geoff to a friend or family member that would need his services.
