Great Job
Geva Baumer was so helpful, patient, easy to understand in guiding me through my recent legal problems. I have never felt so at ease with an attorney’s assistance as I have with Geva. Unfortunately, I have had exposure to many attorneys. Without any hesitation I would recommend Geva Baumer to others and call upon him again. On a scale of 1 to 10, Geva is that true, rare 11. Great job Geva!

A talented bankruptcy attorney who cares
Geva has been a godsend as my wife and I fought for years to keep our home out of foreclosure by two predatory banks. He even went the extra mile through uncharted waters forcing a settlement with one of the biggest banks known for trampling on and taking advantage of vulnerable home owners. I feel blessed to have found this talented bankruptcy attorney who cares. I love this guy!

You won't do better than working with Geva!
I put a lot of work into finding the right attorney. Geva was extremely thorough, meticulous, and responsive throughout my Chapter 7 case. He's also a nice guy with reasonable prices. In the Trustee hearing I sensed his precision and professionalism has earned the respect of the Trustee. I don't see how you could do better than having Geva on your side!

Best attorney I've met thus far
I was introduced to Geva Baumer through the Alameda Bar Association Referral service. Already, after my first conversation with Geva, he showed the insightfulness of a skilled attorney. Geva is not just an attorney earning a living practicing law but is genuinely interested in helping out and making each consultation an uplifting experience. Geva served me as an excellent attorney who could come up with great strategy to help win my case. He would always respond within one day to my calls and emails and was even available during the weekend on one occasion when I was scheduled to be out of town. He’s meticulous, reliable and always prepared ahead of time for consultation. I would not hesitate to recommend him as the best of attorney I’ve met thus far and I’m completely confident his sharpness and expertise of law help him win all kinds of complicated cases.

Brains, balls and compassion
Several years ago, we were anxiously teetering on the brink of foreclosure, betrayed by "Loan modification" deceptions and broken promises. We also were being sued, harassed and spied upon in a draconian neighborhood legal dispute. I had saved Mr. Baumers card from an earlier complimentary consultation, and I made the call. The change in our fortunes was instantaneous and just short of miraculous. The darkness, uncertainty and despair lifted. Seriously. Geva Baumer took care of everything, even gave me a "senior" discount. He scattered our neighborhood persecutors, and got everything we needed in a Chapter 13 plan. He saved our home and our sanity. Highly recommended.

David Overall Review of Geva Baumer ESQ is EXCELLENT
Geva Baumer ESQ represented me and my ex wife in a chapter 7 bankruptcy that was concluded successfully. Specifically I want to thank Geva Baumer ESQ for the following aspects of his service: 1. Each time I needed to contact him he responded within the day and many times an hour. He always had time to listen to my concerns or answer questions. (Unlike some other attorneys who have time for you initially to sign a contract with them and then become unresponsive). 2. I shopped for bankruptcy attorneys and Geva's fee was one third of that of the highest bidder 3. The case was handled smoothly, meticulously, no glitches, no mistakes. Geva knows the law and the process inside out. 4. Geva treated me and my ex wife with respect, was supportive and helpful. I hold three master degrees and I give excellent rating only if it is well justified. I rate Geva Baumer ESQ excellent in all the criteria named above. David
