  • I have four outstanding children and a wonderful wife.
Representative Clients:
  • My name is Bill Carroll and I am a firefighter. I was riding my Harley motorcycle down a country road when a car turned left in front of me. I forced my motorcycle to the ground in hopes of avoiding the car, but we collided and my body hit the ground and then the other car. I tried to check on the other driver, but I could not get up. I was taken to the hospital and the surgeon told me that the bones in my back were broken. At that moment I realized that my career as a firefighter was probably over, but there was no time for emotion because I was taken directly to the operating room for surgery. I had plenty of time for thought while recovering in the hospital. At first I was depressed and then I became angry. I was angry because this accident was not my fault and I am too young to be disabled. Being a firefighter is all I ever wanted to do. The people closest to me felt my anger and I could tell that they were uncomfortable with my behavior. I did not want anger to ruin my life. It was then that I decided to focus on the things I could do, instead of what I could not do. I was alive and my family was supporting me. I could still talk with my friends and laugh, and dream and try. My mission in life became recovering from these injuries and I gave the therapy and treatments 110%. The weeks went by and I started seeing improvement and I became stronger. Soon I was walking and then I started dreaming of running and maybe some day returning to the fire department. The muscles in my back, arms and legs were becoming stronger and within a few more months I could jog. I placed my trust in the professionals around me. My attorney with Cecil & Geiser took care of the legal details concerning the accident and he dealt with the other driver’s insurance company. This allowed me to focus on what my doctors were telling me to do. I also placed trust in God and had faith that I would receive the strength I needed to reach a higher purpose in life. Eventually, I was able to return to work light duty for the department and I am proud to say that I returned to full duty this year with the fire department. I now look at each day as a gift and focus on all the things I can do and I dream of things I will do.
  • Ta McGuire:  My name is Ta McGuire and I hired attorney Mike Geiser to represent me when the car I was in was hit by a truck in Gallipolis, Ohio. Glass shattered when the truck hit the car and a piece of glass entered my ear puncturing my ear drum. Dr. Abraham Jacob performed surgery at The Ohio State University Medical Center. The wreck caused great difficulty in my life due to the injuries and medical treatment. Mike was my attorney and he dealt with the trucking company or the insurance companies. Mike handled everything and I was very glad that I hired him. He was very easy to talk to and he kept me very informed about my case. We did not have to go to trial because we reached a settlement of $172,500.00. I trust Mike as a person and as a lawyer.
  • Carolyn Owens My name is Carolyn Owens and if you need the services of an attorney you should find the BEST attorney to handle your case. I would like to recommend the services of Mr. Michael Geiser. He is a total professional who will research your case and be prepared for all contingencies. Mr. Geiser and his entire office staff will treat you like family, this I know from personal experience. My 78 year old father was seriously injured when he was knocked out of the back of his pick up truck after being hit in the head with the bucket of a backhoe. His back was broken in several places which required neurosurgery. He had a head injury, multiple abrasions and a rotator cuff tear. His injuries and complications that followed required two hospital stays at Grant Medical Center, a nursing home stay and rehab before he was able to go home. He still required follow-up care for several months. After learning that the backhoe operator had medical issues that perhaps contributed to my father’s injuries, I got dad’s permission to contact an attorney. Thankfully, I found Mr. Geiser. He reviewed my father’s medical records, interviewed my father, and researched the case. When the backhoe operator refused to accept responsibility, Mr. Geiser proceeded with the case. He recognized that my father was not used to asking for help and he believed in my father and in his case. Mr. Geiser was able to reach a satisfactory resolution in dad’s case. He treated dad with the respect that he deserves and I am sure that he deals with each of his clients likewise.
  • John and Sandy DouttWe are John & Sandy Doutt. We found ourselves in need of an attorney after a serious accident on our motorcycle. While we both sustained injuries my wife’s were far more serious, including a traumatic brain injury. A month after the accident we still had not heard from the responsible party’s insurance provider. The motorcycle was totaled & we were using our major medical provider for assistance on the medical bills. We finally realized it was time to seek legal assistance. Another attorney referred us to Mr. Michael Geiser because he was better at dealing with motorcycle accidents. We called his office & got an appointment with Mr. Geiser. It turned out to be the wisest decision we could have made. Mr. Geiser was professional & kind from our first meeting. He recognized my wife’s apprehension & spent a great deal of time calming & assuring us that everything would be OK. We never felt rushed or foolish in any of our conversations with Mr. Geiser or any of his staff. No question ever went unanswered or was felt to be unimportant. All of our phone calls were taken at the time of our call or returned in a timely manner. Mr. Geiser was able to reach a very satisfactory resolution for us, one we could have never received without his help. We were very impressed by his professionalism & his preparedness. We felt like we made a new friend during this process & highly recommend Michael Geiser to our family & friends. Sincerely John & Sandy Doutt
  • I am Elizabeth Minturn from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. I was seriously injured due to a car accident. The insurance companies denied responsibility for the wreck. My fiance and I were referred to Mike Geiser’s law firm after the accident and we hired Mike. The accident caused significant dental injuries and I had several surgeries. Mike filed a lawsuit and the case proceeded to trial in front of an arbitration panel. The trial resulted in a verdict in my favor in the amount of $450,000.00. I felt like I was well represented by Mike during the trial. Even before the trial, I felt very confident about the way Mike was handling the case. I always knew what was going on and spoke with Mike frequently and he also sent me a lot of letters keeping me informed. Mike talked to me like a friend and treated me like a partner. We discussed strategy together and I really knew what was going to happen and why. I was very happy with the way the case worked out. I would refer a friend to Mike and Andy Cecil, his partner.
  • Tim Carter: On June 13, 2007, I was driving to work when another car turned in front of me causing a wreck. I broke my leg and was taken to Grant Hospital where Dr. Bruce French surgically repaired my leg. I was off work for about a year. Mike Geiser was my lawyer. Mike was always there when I needed him. We met together at my house and we frequently spoke together on the phone. Mike sued the company that caused the wreck and we did not have to go to trial because the other side settled with us. I did not have to pay Mike any fees or expenses until my case settled. I would be happy to talk to you about my case if you have any questions. I would definitely hire Mike and his firm. $500,000.00 received on June 5, 2009.
  • Jessica Cruz:   When the tragic accident happened causing the death of my son Asa I did not hesitate in calling Cecil & Geiser for representation. A year prior to the accident I needed advice dealing with a situation and had called many lawyers. It was Cecil & Geiser that gave me honest advice. That was very important to me. I did not have to search through the yellow pages searching for a lawyer. I knew who I wanted to represent me when Asa’s accident occurred. Someone who would be honest and upfront with me regarding my case. Throughout my case I felt genuinely cared for. I wasn’t ever treated as a dollar sign or just another client. Anytime I needed to speak with my lawyer he was there for me. I knew that what I wanted did matter to them and they took that into consideration while working on my case. I can not thank them enough for all they have done for me. Despite all the jokes you hear about lawyers there are some good ones out there but, Cecil & Geiser has the best.
  • Don Bircher:   My name is Don Bircher and I live in Pickerington, Ohio. I was injured when a local pharmacy gave me the wrong medication. My doctor prescribed a medication to treat a non life-threatening condition. The pharmacist gave me the wrong medication with a similar sounding name. The medication caused very harmful symptoms which impacted my family, my job and my quality of life. My friend is a private investigator and he suggested that I call attorney Mike Geiser. Mike filed a lawsuit against the pharmacy and we eventually worked out a settlement that I was very satisfied with. I would hire Mike again if I ever needed him. I always knew what was going on with my case. I communicated with Mike by email and by telephone and we had meetings in person. Mike worked hard for me and I trust that he will continue doing the same for his clients in the future.

  • Testimonial of Donald Charles: In September of 2008 I was in a motorcycle accident a car pulled out in front of me and I laid my bike down to avoid hitting the car. I was taken by the ambulance to the hospital and they took x-rays and sent me home. I called the other guys insurance company and they told me they are not responsible because I didn’t make contact with the car. I talked to a lawyer and he said my case was not worth his time. I was at a point where I didn’t know what to do because my shoulder was hurting and the doctor told me I would need surgery if all other treatments failed. I called  Cecil & Geiser and  and explained everything to them. Mike took my case and was able to resolve it. My settlement was $45,000 and I believe without them I would of got nothing. I was able to pay my medical bills and time off work I can’t thank Mike enough.

  • Client Testimonial from Susan Cassidy 2013 In May of 2010 I was in an accident I was in an accident, while riding my bike a dog ran out into the road and caused me to have a serious fall. I have no memory of the accident. Luckily I was with friends that took care of me while I was unconscious and waiting for the ambulance. Subsequently, I made several unsuccessful attempts to communicate with the owner of the dog. I took my case to an attorney in an attempt to communicate once again with the owner of the dog but the attorney refused my case.  I then talked to Mike Geiser, of Cecil & Geiser.Mike Geiser accepted my case.  Shortly thereafter he did some investigating and was able to contact the appropriate party that insured the dog.  It took several years for me to recover but through the entire process I felt I was working with the best possible attorney for my personal injury.  He was very thorough; he understood all aspects of the law concerning my case, even when the opposing insurance representatives did not. He spent time with me explaining the pros and cons on my situation. His paralegal did an excellent job of organizing my medical files, which were quite extensive.  She promptly responded to emails and stayed on top of my deadlines.  Recently my case was successfully resolved. Until you work with someone you really do not know what kind of service you will receive and I can tell you that I received excellent legal service with Mike Geiser

I would recommend him to anyone trying to get what they deserve from their injury claim, Amazing experience the best in attorney Ohio, 2013
