Geoff was extremely amicable throughout the entire process. He was very easy to explain our situation to and was incredibly encouraging about having a positive resolution. He was efficient in timely contacts, follow ups and overall made this process extremely easy and pleasant. Geoff's thoughtfulness and professionalism throughout this entire process is admirable. I would recommend Geoff's services to anyone and everyone, as I feel that he exemplifies the great qualities you would hope for in an attorney who represents your values and what matters to you most. Thank you, Geoff! 5 stars is simply not enough!

Geoff was excellent and helped us achieve the outcome we wanted!
Geoff helped us get our money back so that we could hire someone new to fix what our contractor wouldn't. We also were able to get our legal fees throughout the process. It wasn't easy, but Geoff stuck with it and we got what we wanted. We would hire Geoff again but hopefully we don't have to!

Extremely knowledgeable, attentive and efficient!!
I hired Geoffrey Palachuk to review several job contracts for me. Geoff went above and beyond with his analysis and provided me everything I needed to make an informed decision. It was clear that Geoff was well versed and very knowledgeable and I was beyond pleased with the service he provided me. I will certainly be working with Geoff again in the future and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a competent, caring, and skilled Attorney.

Courteous, thorough consultation on property dispute
I reached out to Geoffrey's current law firm, JBSL in Seattle, regarding a property dispute, and Geoff handled my inquiry. I was repeatedly impressed during my interaction with him by his conscientiousness and courteousness. He took the time to listen carefully, ask questions to ensure he understood the scenario, and research before getting back to me. He was comfortable acknowledging what he didn't know, and did background work to fill in any gaps. My interaction with him regarding my property dispute headache was pleasant enough that I don't entirely loathe the idea of taking legal action if needed. I highly recommend reaching out to Geoff if you have a property law issue in WA.

Smart, dedicated and focused
As an attorney and a person, I found Geoff to be VERY knowlegable, focused and driven. He confidently pressed forward while being humble enough to seek guidence (from Senior Partners) when necessary. Geoff always put my interests first. He took the time to listen, learn and understand a complex transaction and turned that knowlwdge into a winning strategy. I really appreciated that.

Excellent Smart & Driven Attorney
My family has used Geoff as our attorney many times for a variety of legal issues. He has been an extraordinary resource and advocate. I personally have know Geoff for over ten years, and can speak to his character, intellect, compassion, and work ethic. Early in his career, he has already made an impression throughout this city, and continues to grow his practice because of his level of drive, professionalism, and impressive legal acumen. I would recommend Geoff to help resolve any local dispute, or to assist a business owner in defending a lawsuit. Lastly, he is already one of the sharpest intellectual property attorneys in the area.
