Thanks Geil!
I recently had a great experience with Mr. Bilu or Bilu and Bilu Law firm. I would like to thank him and share with you my good experience. Mr. Bilu is a very knowledgeable and experience attorney with an outstanding reputation. It was clear early on in my working with him that ultimately everything would work out well for me and my situation and it did. He was actually able to get more then I had anticipated. He also was prompt in returning my calls or emails when I had a question or concern. This was important to me. In addition, his staff was very helpful and professional though the entire process. I would recommend and have recommended Geil Bilu and should a need arise, call on him again.

Contract with builder
We hired Mr. Bilu to help us get out of a contract with a large custom homes builder. We had entered into a purchase contract with this homes builder about a year ago. As required, we had put down a large deposit. The home was built and it was time to go to closing. However, we has still not sold our current home. Therefore, the builder wanted to cancel the purchase agreement and keep our deposit. We did not have a contingency but we did have a VA Addendum with the builder. Mr. Bilu communicated with the builder on our behalf. He was able to obtain our deposit back from the builder. At first, I was a little hesitant to work with Mr. Bilu merely because he was going on vacation. However, he maintained open communication with me regarding the updates provided from the builder's attorney. I was very pleased that he would take the time to answer my emails promptly during his vacation. Mr. Bilu was direct and made everything simple. Thank you! Also, for the record we had consulted another attorney regarding the same case before Mr. Bilu and we were not happy since he didn't really take time to even take a look at our "case". He dismissed us saying that the builder had the right to keep our deposit even though we had an addendum that clearly stated the builder could not keep it.

Great Law Firm
We were in the process of losing our home. Geil was very sympathetic to our situation . He explained the possible outcomes and strategies. Geil clearly had the knowledge and experience. We proceeded with the defense of our case. Geil kept us informed as the court date approached. The court transcript of the case showed a true professional defense attorney at work. We won our case. Thank God and Geil.

Geil Bilu is an outstanding attorney
Geil and his firm represent me in my foreclosure. My situation is quite unique as I am a high earner but my house is under-water to the tune of over $300K. I have been trying to renegotiate under HARP and HARP II for 3+ years and I always get turned down due to my income. However paying this mortgage for the rest of my life with negative equity, with constantly escalating interest rates is just plain stupid. So I hired Geil to handle my foreclosure. His attentiveness, knowledge and professionalism have kept me in my home for over 2 years and there is no end in sight. In fact it is possible I may end up owning the house free and clear of a mortgage. My only complaint is that I must ping him and his staff for an update rather than he sending me periodic updates on my case, but this is minor since I always get an immediate and professional response from him when I contact him. However I would recommend to him that he develop a contact tickler that sends an update on your case every three months or so, even if its to say nothing new to report. However I recommend him highly and have already done so. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Great Real State and Litigation Lawyer
I've been involved in foreclosure auctions purchases for almost 3 years and thanks to Geil's clear and concise advise, I've been able to avoid costly litigation and timely legal procedures. Geil is passionate about the legal process and identifying who is responsible for what and will make sure his customer is fairly treated. In addition, as a Closing Agent, he made a real State sale very simple. I amply recommend Geil for any Real State transaction as well as a Litigation Lawyer.

Geil Bilu
I live in New York and called Geil Bilu for my closing on my condo in Florida. He was thorough, easy to reach and had everything emailed to me. All I had to do was sign the papers and my check was deposited into my bank account. It was the easiest transaction. His reassurance and guidance were wonderful. I would definitely recommend Geil Bilu .

Excellent service, professional and right on target
Geil Bilu did an outstanding job representing me. His work ethics and professionalism is outstanding and overall the service is exceptional! The extent of expertise and dedication provided is outstanding ! I highly recommend Geil Bilu and will totally use him again for future legal matters.

Excellent Service
I've had many dealings with Geil Bilu and he has never failed to deliver exemplary service. Every closing was done in a fast and efficient manner with finess and diplomacy. I have recommended many clients to him because I believe him to be knowlegeable, trustworthy and keeps me abreast of whatever issues may arise from contract to closing. He is an exceptionally clear writer and speaker, partly due to the fact that he is also an unusually clear thinker. He has excellent instincts and strong research skills. He is also a charming person to work with, totally dependable, hard working, welcomes any feedback, and a team player. In short, I recommend Geil Bilu. to you strongly and without reservation.

My experience working with Mr. Geil Bilu in estate planning, will, and living will.
My wife & I find Mr. Bilu very good to work with, exibits a great degree of professional capibility in understanding his clients and how to fulfill his client's needs. Working with him and his staff was a very comfortable experience. The result of his work in constructing our wills with an estate plan was of high quality and covered our needs fully.

SHORT SALE & Title Insurance Work
I was very happy with service from Deborah and Geil for two recent closings, one in Boca Raton and the other in Tamarac. The Boca Raton short sale was extremely difficult and time consuming. They both worked very hard to make sure it closed on time and we did NOT lose the deal. Excellent service.

Impressive
Geil Bilu is thorough, knowledgeable and extremely caring. It is refreshing to find such a consummate professional.

Fantastic attorney
I have worked with Geil as co-counsel and referred many clients to him, but most importantly I was his client. I would use him again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend him as an attorney.

Quick Initial Response
He responded to my initial question but then I had another question and asked about pricing and I never heard from him again. I will just have to shop around and make phone calls rather than send emails when I have the time.
