Home // Why Us? // Meet Andrew

When Andrew P. Geisterfer had trouble reaching a lawyer by phone, he decided to solve the problem himself by becoming a lawyer.

Find real estate lawyer Andrew Geisterfer, a top Alberta estate probate lawyer on estate planning in Edmonton and Alberta wills and estates law for people with no will, needing legal help to prepare a will.

Edmonton lawyer Andrew P. Geisterfer is a trusted provider of legal services for real estate transactions and Wills & Estates law.

He was admitted to the Alberta Bar in 1996 and was hired almost immediately by a large Edmonton firm, where he handled a variety of legal matters related and specialized in bankruptcy and insolvency, debt collection, bank foreclosures and Supreme Court of Canada appeals.

In 2000, he founded the River City Law Group, an Edmonton law firm specializing in residential and commercial real estate, Wills and Estates, and Corporate Commercial matters.

"I had no preconceptions about what a lawyer should do or say," says Andrew. "I saw lawyers as just regular people." His clients like that concept so much that Andrew and his firm have an extremely high level of repeat client business, the ultimate proof of performance."

Giving back to the community

Andrew is married and has three children. He is a long-time member of Rotary International, the Edmonton Urban Spirits Club, the Paul Harris Society of District 5370 and the Ottewell Christian Reformed Church in Edmonton.

Legal Scenario

First time home purchaser

"I have never bought a home before and am unsure about how to get started and what I will have to pay."

What Would Andrew Recommend?

Don’t hold back because you are afraid that you will be charged just to talk with the lawyer. Most lawyers, including me, will not charge you anything to talk over the phone or have an introductory meeting. If you call me (and I hope you do), I will give you a quick list of do’s and don’ts, based on the type of property you hope to buy. Just those few tips could end up saving you time and money. Many first time buyers think they can limit legal fees by bringing in a lawyer after the deal is done. That is a bad idea because no buyer, and especially no first-time buyer, should sign anything until it has been reviewed by a lawyer. Failing to take that step could mean that you have unknowningly accepted rights and duties that cost you much more than the lawyer’s fee.
