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

Mr.geller is god sent. My husband was charged with two felonies and two. misdemeanors. Even though we new he innocent it was like no one believed him. I contacted Mr. Geller at 7:30 am on a saturday. During our converstion he tried to calm me down to understand what was going on. He then told me to meet him in his office on sunday. After explaining everything that I new about why my husband was charged ,and Mr. Geller eplaining the charges, he went to see my husband that was in jail. He then called to say that he believes my husband and he would help. Need less to say all charges were dropped and are in the process of expungement.I work with lots of attorneys. Mr. Gellar is not the loud mouth, money hungry attorney that most are. He is genuine, kind, gentle, honest god or bad, and most important trust worthy. I would recomend Mr. Geller over all the attorneys I deal with on a daily basis. He is truely a gift from god.read more

I personally vouch for his expertise and costs.read more
