Awesome attorney! Look no further!
Wow! I can not tell you how thankful I chose Geoff Meyerkord to help me! Honest, straightforward, and always willing to take my calls. If every attorney was like him, attorneys would not have a bad name. If you want someone who can explain it to you, not make you feel stupid, and who seriously has your best interest in mind...look no further! I would give 10 stars if I could!

My son searched online to find a highly rated attorney. He told me about Geoff Meyerkord. Geoff was personable, accommodating, and caring. He met me at the rehab center when my case started; he came to where I was to sign papers when the case ended.

highly recommend Geoff Meyorkord to anyone
I was in a head on collision. I didn't know I could get money from it. Geoff had sent me a flyer saying what his company does so I gave him a call. He offered to drive two hours to come meet me. He kept me updated on everything. He went after the other drivers insurance and got the money from there policy. $ 200,000 if it wasn't for Geoff I would not have known I was entitled to any money. Not only is he a great attorney but he is also there to talk whenever you need someone. He is extremely professional and just an awesome guy. I would give him 10 stars if you are looking for an attorney don't hesitate call him today.

Professional
I appreciate everything Geoff and his team accomplished for me and my family during our time of needing legal assistance. They were honest and straight-forward regarding the issues at hand. We felt very comfortable sharing our personal information and felt protected (like I was working with my "big" brother). We were very happy with our negotiated settlement. I would highly recommend Geoff Meyerkord and his team at Meyerkord & Meyerkord.
