  • Jordan Charles Urness

    Although I have not worked with Geoff, I know Geoff on a personal level. In getting to know Geoff, one thing has become very clear; he is tough and knows how to persevere. Toughness and perseverance are qualities that any person looking for an attorney should search for. Geoff possesses those qualities, which I can only conclude makes him a great advocate for his clients.
