An attorney with authenticity, compassion, and grit!
It goes without saying that Mr. Gereis is a phenomenal human being. From my consultation with him to my emails/phone calls with him, Mr. Gereis was extremely supportive, informative, relatable, and far from being on a high horse. I was panicking about my misdemeanor case and all that could have gone wrong, but the plea offer in the end was doable because it did not result in a jail sentence. Thank you once again Mr. Gereis. =]]

Great lawyer
He was very caring and straight to the point , gave me many options. Got my case reviewed and ultimately dismissed by my second court date even during this pandemic, never tried to push my court date a million times like others ! Definitely worth it.

As any person in my situation would panic on what to expect as their next step after a huge mistake. Mr.Gereis’ staff is available 24/7 for a free consultation and that really helped out my mind at ease. I would definitely recommend Mr.Gereis.
