Jonathan Geisen: Excellent Attorney
Jonathan is the definition of what a good attorney should be. He is easy to work with, always has my best interest at heart, knows when to be tough and when to be diplomatic, and is very thorough. I can highly recommend Jonathan for anyone's corporate legal needs.

Goes the extra mile.
Mr. Geisen helped me with a buisness transaction (buy-sell) and brought some excellent ideas to the table that saved me considerable money and even more importantly lots of heartache and headaches.
