I originally retained Geoff for paternity and placement representation in a matter involving my infant daughter and a non-marital situation back in Nov 2011. Geoff was very knowledgeable in the various avenues and options I was able to pursue. And even though I was determined to have what I believed to be fair, Geoff’s strategy and wisdom proved to be the better course of action. With a calm demeanor and non-aggressive approach, he never gave into the opposing lawyers games and held fast to what he believed was the right course for me and my daughter. Considering that the “other” lawyer was “senior” in experience, Geoff proved to be 100% more professional in communication, professionalism and knowledge of his field. Looking back, I’m glad that it was Geoff who I chose to represent my daughters and my interests in solidifying our relationship and fair placement given the various circumstances I was facing. His legal assistant Trinette Hernandez proved to be a very valuable asset as well in terms of legal administrative knowledge and support. I would highly recommend Geoff and his top-notch professional skills in family law, child custody and placement.
I am grateful to Geoff for guiding me through a very painful and complicated divorce. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in family law, he was also skilled in patiently educating an individual with no legal background. He communicated with me regularly, responding to my inquiries quickly and thoroughly. He made sure I completely understood every legal decision to be made as well as what to expect in advance of court appearances. When the emotional toll of the divorce led me to lose sight of my own best interests, Geoff made certain that we pursued a reasonable and fair outcome. Although he exhausted all options in working towards a resolution, he never compromised to my detriment. In the courtroom he conducted himself with confidence and finesse, always thoroughly prepared and ready to adovcate on my behalf. He remained calm and composed, never did he succumb to intimidation or hostility. At times the divorce process left me feeling exposed and vulnerable; however, Geoff always treated me with compassion and respect. It is this preservation of my dignity that has meant the most.
Geoff is a very polished professional who I hired to represent me in a divorce case that became complicated. Through Geoff's knowledge of law and experience in the court system, he was able to guide me through a difficult and confusing situation. He was respectful of me at all times, and to all involved in the case. He worked hard to ensure I was treated fairly from the beginning to the end.
