  • Robert Perez

    When a close family member needed representation in a DUI matter, I sent them immediately to Geoff's firm. He is an accomplished and renowned expert in his field, with the track record to prove it. On top of all that, he's smart, creative, and one of the most well-respected attorneys in the community. I give him my highest recommendation.

  • Andrea King Robertson

    Geoff is an amazing advocate -- not only for his clients, but for all citizens of Washington. He represents the interests of his clients with passion and intensity, treating each with care and attention. He fights for the best possible result in every case, and does not hesitate to use creative and unique approaches to argument and trial. On the Statewide level, he is a tireless contributor to the lobbying efforts surrounding important legislation. I would have no hesitation recommending Geoff to anyone in need of a defense attorney.
