Bill is highly knowledgeable, dependable, and always answers your emails, phone calls, etc. promptly. He has helped me achieve the outcomes that I have sought in my cases by offering sound advice, as well as being truthful in what to expect with my situation. I would not trust anyone else with representing me!
At the time of my divorce, a dad with two children ( that now live with me ) i have been Very Blessed to have William Geary as my attorney, and would HIGHLY recommend him to everyone.
I hired Mr. Geary to help me with what had been until that time an extremely long (approximately six years from inception), difficult (very expensive, with little to show for it), and acrimonious interstate case involving child support, custody, visitation, and multiple contempt of court actions. At the time, I felt that my chances of getting to court at all, much less winning were next to hopeless, based upon my previous progress. Mr. Geary was one of a few lawyers whom I contacted via email based on strengths of compared resumes and he responded via phone immediately. He reviewed the facts of my case and gave me what I felt, and still feel was a very honest assessment of the situation from a legal options available point of view. Once retained, Mr. Geary went about my case conscientiously, methodically, and with what I felt was exemplary professionalism. It was soon apparent to me that Mr. Geary is very detail-oriented, not one to leave anything to chance, and is one to do his homework. While under my charge, Mr. Geary, for example, was aware of and concerned with not only winning our case, but also on winning any follow-on appeals, demonstrating to me an ability to think ahead such that a win now would not be lost later on some administrative technicality. He served me invaluably and compassionately as a counselor, giving me his best, unvarnished estimate of our chances, and clearly kept my desires at the forefront of his efforts. I always felt that Mr. Geary and I were a team, communicating and collaborating constantly, via email, phone, and in person to the point such that I came to consider him less of an attorney on retainer and more of a trusted friend. I still consider him as such. When it was finally time to argue our case in court, Mr. Geary was obviously very well prepared himself, and took the time to ensure that I felt so as well through rehearsals, mock questioning, and war-gaming. He argued our case brilliantly, using a mixture of written, taped, and photographic evidence as well as the testimony of expert witnesses. His performance was flawless in every respect. I could not have asked for a better effort, one that was clearly worth much more than for what I had paid him. Child custody cases are serious business and can be emotionally charged in the extreme, but Mr. Geary maintained a wonderful balance of being empathetic with my situation as a counselor, while at the same time being a quiet, yet doggedly tenacious litigator. His handling of our adversary, once finally in court was masterful to the point of being almost entertaining. He doesn't engage in loud theatrics and showboating in the courtroom as if on TV. He instead is the calm, cool, level-headed professional, prepared in every aspect for every possible eventuality and was never surprised. His blend of being a gentleman with genuine feelings for the plight of his clients coupled with his unlimited willingness to do whatever is needed to help them permeates his staff, with whom I was also extremely pleased and regard very fondly. There are few things in life more important or precious to most of us than our children, and I can think of no better, higher, or stronger endorsement than to say I trusted Bill with the welfare of my only daughter and would do so again willingly, without reservation and, further, I would recommend him unhesitatingly to anyone in need of similar services. Mr. Geary is simply an outstanding attorney and an even better person in whom I am extremely well pleased. Excellent in every respect.
Bill Geary handled my divorce/custody case with exceptional professionalism and expertise.
Our case had a number of unique points dealing with international custody, and Bill was able to gather significant resources for our case and provide valuable guidance that put us in an advantageous position when the case went to court. His knowledge and experience of the court system and how it works was both impressive and reassuring to us and was instrumental in helping us to navigate successfully through the long and difficult legal process.
He was always honest and up-front about everything (even about things that you may not want to hear) and responded promptly to all communications. His fee may be a little higher than others, but it is very fair and was money well-spent.
Attorney William Geary, is an excellent Attorney. What he did for my family involving a child abuse case was outstanding. I would RECOMMEND William Geary one hundred present. Very good is not the words for Mr Geary, EXCELLENT is the word. Thank you.
I REALLY TRUST THIS ATTORNEY. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE WHO NEEDA A TOP DIVORCE ATTORNEY. HE IS ALSO KNOWLEDGABLE IN OTHER POINT OF LAW. I TRULY FEEL YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
I would recommend this attorney to anyone in my family or friends. He is the best. Before I worked with Mr. Geary with a very complicated and contested divorce case, I had also worked with other attorneys. He is sharp, understanding, quick but calm, well managed schedule, and effective. I feel my case was well handled and the outcome was well desired.
Bill was very attentive and listened carefully to my case. He "rolled up his sleeves", went to work and got the best possible solution to my problem. He was absolutely brilliant, and his fee was very fair. I would recommend him to anyone.
Mr. Geary is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer, which is not always synonymous with such a profession. I'm always impressed with his attentiveness and responsiveness, even after normal business hours. In fact, he called and replied to my emails while on his vacation after reviewing my documents and answered all of my legal questions. My situation with my ex-wife was/is nothing short of absurd, but Mr. Geary was very up front and honest about my options, the legal system and process for handling certain situations. He always has my interests in mind and always works to support what is right...and does not back down. Unlike my past legal counsel, Mr. Geary is always prepared and looks at the case from every angle, researches every bit of information and works with me to make sure I understand everything and am satisfied. With his vast experience and direct approach, he will not disappoint nor waste your money.
Attorney Geary helped me through some tough marital issues. He is knowledgeable and very capable. I continue to recommend him to individuals who need representation on domestic issues.
