I am very pleased to write a review for Mrs. Towers. She was very good listening, communicating, and just overall simply caring & dedicated!
First off I would like to say that this has been by far the best lawyer I had ever retained!!!!
Mrs. Towers is super thorough and knows her profession pertaining to family law very well. One of the truths that she told me initially was “When hiring a lawyer you have to know if they will always be available for you to reach them, because if not then you should probably reconsider”. And she was right because she was always available with any question that I had via email or phone which made me even more confident in her abilities and showed me that she was concerned.
She assisted me in an interstate custody case where I felt I had no hope of winning. There were a lot of wrongs that I experienced in the legal system in Brooklyn that was not in my favor. I explained to Mrs. Towers everything and after sharing my paperwork and speaking with her she understood the facts and without any hesitation she was more than willing to take my case and present it to the judge.
Even through all of the repeat trips to New York I felt comfortable in court while she represented me. To make a long story short the bogus cases against me filed by the mother were dismissed and I felt that justice was served. I owe it all to Mrs. Towers through all of her efforts as she worked tirelessly to make sure that all motions were in order and stressing to the judge that all cases should be dismissed. As far as payments and rates are concerned, Mrs. Towers was always fair and was by far the least expensive of all of the other lawyers I called initially. But do not confuse her low rates for an inefficient attorney because she is definitely not.
I would hire her again in a heartbeat and I wish all lawyers were as understanding, caring and strategic as her when it comes to winning cases!

I'm Patrick M. I'm a retired NYCPD Police Officer. I was recommend from true friends to hire Geanine Towers to be my attorney . In my past history as a Police Officer I've dealt with many prosecutors and defense lawyers and of course a few were good. But, approximately six months ago when I first meet Ms. Geanine Towers I was truly impressed by her compassion and interest of my case. My case was based on a false allegation . Attorney Geanine Towers took on my case do to the fact that she believed in my innocents. During the appeal process Attorney Geanine Towers covered every aspect of every charge against me. To proof beyond the reasonable doubt of my innocents from all charges.

I came to Geanine Towers for the first time not knowing what to expect from her. I sat down with her to talk about my situation and was pleasantly surprised. She is fair, honest, straight forward and very knowledgeable when it came to my family court case. She has worked with me financially and I trust her as my lawyer. I would recommend her to anyone and I would definitely use her as my lawyer again if I had to.

After having been slandered and harassed by my husband's sister for ten years, I looked for a lawyer who would help me protect myself from her. My husband found Geanine Towers through the yellow pages, and when we researched her, we were happy with what we found. Ms. Towers is a compassionate listener, working with my emotions and yet allowing me to be a full partner in this process. Geanine showed total respect for me and understanding of how this situation was affecting me. She explained everything and was there with me throughout, either by phone or text or in person. Best yet, there were no hidden or unexpected fees; what we originally agreed to was honored.
Our day in court was not the horrible experience that I had anticipated. Ms. Towers voiced for me in "legalese" everything that I was feeling and hoping for. I don't have to worry about being victimized any more. Now I can relax

I was floored when I read the above referenced review, it is the complete opposite of my experience with Ms. Towers. I have found her to be proactive in protecting the interests of her client, knowledgable in her area of practice, professional/polite in her dealing with her client and opposing client. Opposing council in my case has been condescending/insulting to both myself and Ms. Towers, has reneged on many preliminary negotiations and has been very difficult in every aspect. Never have I seen Ms. Towers lose her composure even when contending with this sort of situation. Her CV is impressive, and the court obviously believes she is trustworthy as she has been appointed as an attorney for the child. I find it impossible to believe based on my dealings with this attorney, that she would be insulting to a client and charge against the retainer irresponsibly. I am convinced I made an excellent choice in engaging the services of Ms. Towers and am confident I will continue to hold her in high esteem at the time my case comes to a conclusion. She, in my opinion, has the rare gift of being able to explain complicated 'legalese' to a layperson in a fashion that does not make them feel stupid, of having a good understanding/empathy of the complicated emotions that can accompany certain types of cases and being readily available after working hours when it is necessary to protect the interests of her client.

I'm writing this on behalf of Geanine Towers. She was recommended by a co-worker in Education who had gone through a divorce/separation. I found her experience in these matters invaluable since she had herself been recently divorced. Ms.Towers guided me through the particulars of the law that pertained to my rights as a father and husband , property owner and artist. Her Knowledge in matters of divorce/separation are on the money.
MsTowers definitely was a benefit to me and my family. She worked hard for me and was tenacious in her pursuit of justice and fairness for all my concerns in my legal separation issues. - Edit Review
