Having a diverse background is one of the reasons Mr. Geller can negotiate and argue cases so effectively. Although a native of southern California, Mr. Geller displayed his leadership skills playing college baseball and obtaining his Bachelor of Science from the University of Colorado Boulder. After working in the corporate world in San Francisco for two years, he returned to Los Angeles and attended Southwestern University School of Law. He volunteered, and later worked throughout law school, for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
Upon graduating from law school, he was employed with the L.A. D.A.’s Office for several years as a trial attorney, where he tried all types of cases—from DUIs to homicide. He has always been active in professional and community activities, including the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Indigent Criminal Defense Appointments Program, coaching trial advocacy teams at Southwestern University, and judging trial advocacy competitions.
It is Mr. Geller’s well-roundedness that has enabled him to succeed as a criminal defense attorney in Pasadena. His dedication and ability to relate and communicate with people has enabled him to negotiate settlements and dismissals, often on the eve of trial.
Mr. Geller’s Approach
At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, our attorneys are committed to providing you with the quality criminal defense you need and deserve. With us, there are several things you can expect from our lawyers.
First and foremost, we want you to have a comprehensive understanding of your situation.

Our attorneys will work with you to ensure you understand all aspects of what you should reasonably expect so that there are no surprises during this difficult experience. We will make ourselves available to you, even during after-hours, so that you know what you are going into and how we will work to defend you.
Secondly, we aim to be as open as possible with our clients. We believe that being communicative with our clients on a regular basis helps build a stronger defense because it allows us to work together and collaborate on ideas. We want you to have as much input and information as possible going into your defense so that you are fully prepared.
Lastly, you should expect to have yourself and your case represented with the utmost professionalism and care possible. Our lawyers will not only aim to keep you out of jail and minimize the criminal penalties you may face, but we will also strive to keep this event’s impact on your overall life as minimal as possible.
