After searching through a plethora of overrated and overpriced lawyers, I found Leon Geller! The time he dedicated to learning about me and my case had me sold. He was super knowledgeable and helpful in achieving my desired outcome for my previous case. He is clear on the process and maintains communication. He also prices his services very reasonably. That is why I went back to Mr. Geller for my new case, and I remain satisfied so far!read more

Mr. Geller is experienced, intelligent and a diligent attorney. He takes a lot of notes (this comes in handy when you are in trial and he needs to make objections on your behalf). During my trial he raised objections at lightning speed so that opinions or inadmissible statements (like hearsay) would not be considered. A lot of prosecutors do whatever tactic is necessary to find you guilty. It is Mr. Geller who is looking out for you at every step of the way. Throughout the process (trial and pre-trial), Mr. Geller is a professional and his work is thorough. I would recommend Mr. Geller to my friends and family. Believe me: You want to have Leon Geller on your side. He is the real deal!Mr. Geller Thank You!!!read more

My situation was unique as I am a VA resident but the incident occurred in Rockville, MD. I was involved in a motor vehicle incident where I hit 2 parked cars and a pole. I had 6 very serious charges against me . Mr. Geller provided me with a 1 hour free consultation and I hired him on the spot. He was always responsive by phone and email. Even the discovery came in we were able to meet on a Sunday which was very accommodating given my work schedule. He found small details in the discovery...he is very knowledgeable. We went to court in late November and I received a very favorable outcome. In December we went to the MVA hearing and Mr Geller convinced the judge to keep my driving privlages in MD on a restricted basis which was very important since I live in VA but work in MD. I had never been in trouble with the law before this, and I was very nervous of the potential consequences, but I know with Mr Geller on my side he would deliver favorable results. If your looking to hire an attorney in MD look no furtherread more
