Starting with the arraignment hearing, Geoff accepted and immediately initiated my defense within minutes of our first face to face meeting at the Court House. I was able to efficiently enter a No Guilty plee, following which we convened at the Law offices of G Burgh conveniently located in the heart of downtown Seattle.
Through every stage in my case, Geoff offered pragmatic and practical advise that ensured steady and positive progress. His input is specially precise and to the point, cutting to the heart of every challenge or important decision. Geoff respects his client, and provides every perspective with clear options on what needs to happen next.
Thanks to his early intervention and correct strategy, my case took a good turn at each critical stage leading to the final outcome in our favor - a judgement that recognized the proper precedence when it came to previous cases and also accepted the lack of compelling evidence or cause to convict me.

Let me begin by setting up my case. I was in need of a DUI attorney after a dumb decision one night in April. I got pulled over and was taken to the station and blew over the limit, This was a first offense and I was understandably scared at my predicament. I did some asking around and meet with a couple other lawyers. They all seemed super money hungry and didn't give much detail on the outlook they would just say "we can make this go away".
After talking to Geoffrey he showed a level of understanding about what I needed to hear and how he could help, He made it clear that it wasn't going to be a walk in the park and Laid out what I needed to do to make it the optimum conditions for him to negotiate.
I loved the truthfulness and straightforward attitude. I ended up going with him, during the case he was super responsive and always available, also has a very nice office staff. I can truly say Geoffrey is like an ice Burg of the law, you may only have to see him a few times during your case, but he is working hard on your behalf to get you the best outcome. He successfully got my case lowered, resulting in me not having to go to jail and a very low fine. I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. He experience and knowledge helped me through this process tremendously, I don't think I could have or would have gotten the same result with someone else. If I ever need legal counsel for anything I know I can ask him and he would be more than happy to point me in the right direction, because I truly believe that's the type of good person I think he is.

I was as guilty as OJ Simpson! I made the biggest mistake in my life. Mr.Burg and his team are the BEST in the business. They were in constant contact with me. If you get in trouble I would highly suggest hiring him.He asked for the pie in the sky deal. That deal became a reality. I simply can NOT say enough bout this guy. I thought my life was over. Now I have a new lease on life. Call him first before even thinking about calling ANY Lawyer. Not once during this whole process. He wasn't prepared and had a perfect plan of attack. I can't stress this enough. Definitely,not your sleazy DWI defense lawyer. That you see on TV! To top it all off he is fantastic human being. I urge you to call him FIRST! My fee was a value at twice the price. Geoff,you are a giant among men in the Courtroom. I can NOT thank you enough.

Geoffrey Burg is an amazing man. First impression, I hardly remember because I was so horrified at what had happened to me, but within minutes of our first appointment, he was so very kind and compassionate. Trying to wipe the tears from my eyes, thinking life was over, he assured me that there might be consequences, but he was present to aid me in the fight. I was absent for 30 days in inpatient treatment and had little communication with him. After I came home, the communication was flowing and we had a plan. Unfortunately it was quiet for a while, which made me nervous and Geoffrey was relieved that nothing had happened. He assured me monthly that things were the same and there was nothing to do on my part, except to stay sober and do what I had been doing. My plan as a sober woman, increasingly got stronger and my life became happier. One day last month I received my first court notice. Again, Geoffrey was there to aid me through this painful process. The end result was nothing I ever imagined as my case was dismissed. It was jaw dropping that this was happening. I am so ever grateful to My attorney, Geoffrey Burg for making this happen. This has proven that my daily program is working and all my hard work has paid off. Geoffrey saw this in me. He believed in me and we both won. He is professional. He is courteous and fair and always did what he said he was going to do. With out much more detail, I will say that I would give him a blazing 10. He is just that good. Paying attention to his directives and listening to him about his healthy lifestyle, it was a great incentive for me to do the right thing. We collaborated together and in the end it has brought much confidence to my life. I was fortunate to receive a recommendation from a family friend and apparently I made the right choice to hire him and have him by my side. If you're in need of someone that will be by your side, Geoffrey Burg is the man! Signed forever grateful!

i was in such a bad predicament I really did not know what i was gonna do.. I have a bad record already from numerous arrest and convictions... I was pulled over on my birthday for allegedly running a stop sign... which was not true...but it didn't matter because i had 2 warrants so i was gonna be taken in regardless. I knew i wasn't guilty so i figured it would be dropped or dismissed eventually. Because of my record they were gonna try to make an example of me. I had a public defender appointed to me and oh my goodness was that scary....She cared nothing about my case jus what was i willing to plead to or if i took it to trial what i was looking at....I was so terrified.... I knew i couldn't put my life in her hands because out of 6 months of having my case i seen her once out of the courtroom.....and only talked to her 1-2 days before my next court date....I started doing research on some private attorneys who specialized in D.U.I. cases because thats what the charges i had the warrants were for..... I found 2 attorneys and i went and met with one....When i did meet with this gentlemen i could tell how he looked at my record and looked at me and then told me there was nothing he could really do to help me... I really felt helpless after that meeting and felt like i had no chance truthfully. But i couldn't give up so i gave my second choice of the 2 attorneys i found whose name is Geoffrey Burg.... After sitting down for a consultation with him i felt o.k....But his price was very high for what i thought i would have to pay. I waited a few weeks and thought a few things over and i set up another appointment to actually make sure that this was gonna be worth the money he was asking and that he was really gonna work for me.....Mr. Geoffrey Burg exceeded all of my worries and expectations.....He fought for me and explained everything every step of the way....And the outcome of my case was something that i couldnt ever believe would happen!!! I only received 30days and I'm able to get work release so I'm able to stay out and work to provide for my 2 babies who are only 1 and 2 years old...Which is another reason i was stressing about what i was facing... I was so happy that i even offered Mr. Burg some more money or jus to let me even buy him and his office lunch or dinner just to show my gratitude...He smiled and declined the offer he said it was his pleasure to help me and if i can only write a review for him or tell some of my friends about him so he can represent us if needed!!!! All i can say is THANK U THANK U THANK U!!!!! to Mr. Geoffrey Burg and his staff for their hard work and dedication for their clients!!! I Appreciate everything they did for me so the least i can do is write a review to let someone know if they are in need of a great lawyer and they don't know who to call....Dont hesitate to call Geoffrey Burg i guarantee he will work hard for u, he will tell you the truth, and you're gonna be pleased with your outcome!!!!

Geoff did a wonderful job with my case. He was professional and had excellent communication with me. His knowledge of hit and run cases was second to none and definitely benefited my case. What impressed me the most about Geoff, was that he listened to my needs and concerns and then did everything in his power to provide the best outcome for me. I cannot say enough good things about Geoff and HIGHLY recommend him as a lawyer.

I received a dui in Jan 2015 with a company car. And 2x over the limit.Having to deal with a duo and potential career ending situation I needed a great. Lawyer.From where I was that ugly night and to end with a reckless and no jail time only a true professional like Geoff could have accomplished that.He and his staff are professional responsive and result oriented .If you need the best and great guidance through the process he is the only choice.

I should have done this long ago, but something just came up in life that prompted me to recall what an amazing experience I had with Geoff. I got myself in a tough situation, and felt totally overwhelmed. Geoff walked me though each step, explained everything that made no sense to me, and fought as hard as he could for me. He was completely professional the whole way through. I was extremely fortunate with the outcome of my case, and I'm not sure that the stars would have aligned without Geoff's guidance and skills. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody!

I am a first time DUI offender. I got arrested for this DUI in Tukwila, WA and it was a terrible situation for me. Upon being arrested and brought into the police department my anxiety and nerves were getting to me, but it was very apparent that the officer did not specifically explain the implied consent warnings correctly; she paraphrased, I asked a questions and showed confusion, and then after all of that I received a refusal for additional breath testing! I thought I already took a breath test on the side of the road, but this was not the official test. I did not know this and she did not clarify. Regardless, this was a huge shock for me because I was nothing but compliant.
I looked for a lawyer in the area, found Geoff's website, and saw all of the fantastic reviews so I knew he would be the most beneficial to my situation. I explained to him that I was in the Seattle area for a limited amount of time (because I am from out of state) and he scheduled a free consultation within 2 days of our first call. During the consultation, I explained my situation and he seemed very confident in his abilities; he was also very honest with all possible outcomes. He told me exactly what I needed to do to appease the court, where I could complete these tasks, and other actions that would eventually happen. He walked me through the process the entire way.
Since my schedule with work is constantly changing and I am from out of state, Geoff was more than conscientious about trying to move around meetings and calls. In fact, he was able to get the court to allow the arraignment and pretrial on the same day simply because it was better for my schedule.
Within 2 months of the incident, this whole horrifying experience was over. Geoff provided more than enough information and evidence that the refusal should be dismissed, which then dismissed 1 year of license revocation. That was such a huge weight off my shoulders!
I seriously recommend Geoffrey Burg because he works for you, he legitimately cares if you were wronged, and if you are at fault he works extremely hard at trying to get your sentence lessened!

Geoffrey Burg represented me on a Dui case which was not my first one. He is a very realistic upfront and honest man. Follows through and gives you a very comforting feeling that you are in the right hands when it comes to a highly stressful situation like a dui. The outcome of my case Was more than I could've ever hoped for. two years after my court date the dol decided they would re suspend my license. I got ahold of Geoff and tommorow I get my interlock removed and my license is reinstated. Have no idea how this happened other than I had Geoff in my corner. I would recommend and highly suggest you call Geoff burg if you are accused of dui. Not only was he my lawyer but also consider him a friend.
