“My experience with WSH was excellent. Lead attorney Geoff Weisbart sorted through complex financial issues and developed a sound, understandable, and, most importantly, winning strategy. The entire team treated me with respect and made me feel as if I were their only client. I highly recommend WSH!”

“One of the great joys of a very difficult situation for me, was watching the excellent work of the two younger lawyers you have taught and mentored.  Top skills, top coordinating ability, and high character.  It is obvious to me that part of your legacy will be leaving behind some well-trained honorable lawyers.

I have had the opportunity to work with some of the legends in this practice.  Now, towards the end of whatever my practice is or was, I have had the opportunity to be represented by one.

With gratitude and admiration.”

“From the first moment I met Geoff, and his team, I knew I was in good hands. Their personal and legal advice, expertise, professionalism, attention to detail, lateral thinking, problem solving and absolute honesty brought reassurance at a vulnerable and tumultuous time. I’m so grateful!”

- WSH Client

Geoff began his legal career in 1986, at a time when civil cases proceeded to jury verdict more regularly. As a result, Geoff gained significant trial experience at an early stage in his career – experience that has proven to be very valuable to his clients in today’s legal environment.

Geoff’s practice involves all aspects of civil disputes, from state and federal trial courts, to arbitrations and appeals. He routinely advises clients with regard to complex and sophisticated legal issues, and represents those clients in court and in arbitration. Geoff is specifically adept at courtroom skills and cross examination, with a skilled dedication at getting the truth from witnesses and opposing parties. Geoff’s clients are comforted by his dedication to the facts of each case, and his ability to make truly complicated facts simple for a judge, jury and arbitrator to understand.

Relying on his background as a Commercial and an Airline Transport rated pilot and Gold Seal flight instructor, Geoff also handles a wide range of disputed matters affecting aircraft owners, operators and pilots, including business-related aviation litigation and FAA compliance issues.

Outside the Office

Geoff’s zest for life includes his passion for riding and training cutting horses and for flying airplanes. Geoff is a proud member of the National Cutting Horse Association and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. He regularly competes in NCHA cutting horse competitions on horses he has raised or owns.

Geoff is also regularly called upon by the AOPA to help counsel pilots who have had legal or regulatory infraction issues. Geoff flies a fully restored and modernized Beechcraft P Barron, which is often referred to as a true “Pilot’s Airplane.” Geoff has also continued to provide flight training to a limited group of pilots, as his experience as a commercial pilot and flight instructor spans over 45 years.
