I would definitely recommend Georgiann. I first acquired her services around 11 years ago. I was clueless to the process and as a young man fighting for custody of his two children, I needed someone who could not only walk me step by step through the process but also to see me through a long brutal divorce. I would have to write a novel to give you all the details of how messy and brutal this divorce really was but instead I will tell you that without Georgiann I could have never made it through it. if you've ever been through a divorce like this you will know that it really never is over however Georgiann stood by me every step of the way and I received full custody of my children and more. it's not everyday that a young man ends up with full custody of his children and this requires one excellent lawyer. I feel like Georgiann is a part of my family now and will always have the utmost gratitude for her services.
Ms Rovai has helped me in the most difficult time of my life. She is personable and efficient. She always returns my phone calls and answers any questions. I feel confident in her ability to hand difficult situations. My divorce is still on going after 10 years and Mr. Rovai has kept me informed and has made sure that my interests are always taken care of. She is on time to every court hearing that I have had. I could not image going through my divorce without her by my side. I have recommended her in the past and will continue to recommend her in the future.
I found her to be uninformed about most issues. She was also not liked by the judges involved, which was obvious. She doesn't return calls, even after several reminders, and it was a big mistake getting involved with her altogether. She still hasn't followed through with my ORIGINAL request, and I am not sure if she is just a terrible attorney in general, or is just lazy. Stay away from this attorney, you will thank me! I was referred by another lawyer who later apologized for the referral, he was unaware of her track record. She still has some money of mine in her coffers, and I am giving up hope, or maybe I just dread any more contact! She represented me in a divorce proceeding, and I was better off handling the proceedings myself! She seemed to have a big ego, and did NOT appreciate any input from her client, in my case, ME! I found if difficult to approach her with mistakes I felt she was making, and even though it was at MY expense, she put me on the defensive! I never was contacted by her to finish a MAJOR transaction she was to accomplish, and when I finally contacted HER, she said, "Oh, I forgot about that!" Well, I DIDN'T! And she still has my money, I asked for legal advice on what to do, and the resounding response was just to remove her, and retain another attorney. It will remain to be seen whether I have a fight to get my money that has been accrueing interest ( in HER account) back! I have a feeling I would never hear from her again, so I will follow the advice of other attorneys and replace her. I am dreading EVERYTHING about the future experience, just like I dreaded the current experience with her, at the time! Her bedside manner leaves much to be desired, and i never found out WHY the judges so obviously disliked her, but i am guessing it was her lack of knowledge of the law! SHE told me that the judges didn't like her, and this was BEFORE I saw it for myself. maybe she was warning me.
