About Me

As a Court Attorney for the Family Court and Appellate Division for almost a decade, I have developed the skills necessary to expertly  prosecute your appeal.  I will listen to you and your family or others concerned. I will hear and identify your concerns and misgivings. I will effectively channel what grieves you about the trial and decision into a palatable argument before our intermediate and high courts.

  • Ivan Franklin Khoury

    I was an Administrative Law Judge for the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission from 2004 to 2010. During that time Geanine was a mentor and at times supervisor. I endorse Geanine Towers because she is a zealous advocate who is committed to working in the public interest for families and children. Geanine has worked in the Family Court and at the Appellate Division, Second Department, as a Court Attorney to the judges. In legal matters Geanine is very analytical, with an ability to explain the law in plain English. Geanine is a skilled and experienced attorney and treats everyone with dignity and respect. If I had a family matter, I would hire Geanine.
