Geraldine saw me through a very contentious and protracted divorce and custody litigation. She was always well prepared, and organized. She made sure that my ex-husband's suit to remove my child from private school, custody, custody appeal, and my divorce were resolved in my favor. She is simply the best.
After interviewing several attorneys, I chose Geraldine for her expert negotiating skills and "even hand". What Geraldine provided to me exceeded my expectations. She was careful to explain all of the implications in making decisions throughout my settlement negotiations. She raised concerns that I would not have otherwise considered, and am thankful for that awareness, as it has protected me in my financial future, and my relationship with my children. She was keenly aware of how to specifically negotiate with the other party, and was tough when necessary. She was always mindful of what was in the best interest of my children.
Geraldine worked with me for at least 4 years on a very complicated property and custody case. I found her to be the right combination of calm and pushy. She was clear about when I needed to take certain steps, and was good about explaining the consequences of various actions. While she appeared to be a bit passive during the preparations, she was a tiger in all negotiations and did a great job of representing me.
