Atty Catherine Geary is the BEST
Catherine handled my husband's personal injury case top notch! We found her on AVVO with the top rating possible, that being a 10. We interviewed with her and when she said she would take us on as clients, we felt a burden had been lifted from our shoulders. She handled our case in a professional manner. She answered all emails, even on the weekend, and called us when we least expected it. We were kept up to date on all aspects of this case. She could tell when we were stressed and a simple unexpected phone call from Catherine eased us. She is professional, easy to work with and she truly puts the client before herself. She always has a smile on her face. She deserves more than 5 stars. If the need arises for us to use an Attorney, we will call Catherine Geary without hesitation. No need to check around with other Attorneys. Not only was she our Attorney, but our confidante, and someone we can call a friend. We hope our paths cross again on a different avenue. Thank you Catherine for representing my husband and myself. We are truly blessed we found you. You deserve only the best.

Auto Accident
Catherine Geary was amazing! My case was resolved in a timely manner. Everything that I needed to know about the case was explained in great detail. While Catherine was working on my case, she always kept in touch to see how I was doing. At one point I became very stressful and she reached out to me with a simple phone call. Catherine is very professional and genuine. The results of my case couldn't have been any better and I'm very satisfied. Thank you very much Catherine Geary!

Hired to handle the Estate of two deceased family members that died the same day.
I have had the most stressful year having to deal with the deaths of two family members. Catherine Geary did a fantastic job with both Estates. There were times when things were stressful and required 100% of her time. She gave 110% .Not only a great lawyer but a caring and compassionate person. I could of never made it through this year without her.

Motor Vehicle Accident
Catherine was the best. She took care of everything, even the little things I could have done myself she said no no no we will take care of that for you. I did nothing. I had to go sign a few papers now and then or pick up my checks for lost wages, which could of been mailed, other than that I did nothing. I would not hesitate to contact her again in the future. I didn't expect much of a payout I really wanted her to help because the other party was saying I was at fault, the hospital was not very welcoming and I was at witts end what to do. I got way more money than I expected to get. I was able to pay off many bills and have a nice little vacation, well deserved after spending months at rehab appointments and doctors appointments. She set everything up for me and guided me every step of the way. Once I emailed on a saturday night expecting a reply on monday, I got a reply within the hour, now that is above and beyond in my book.

Absolutely superb legal representation
Couldn't imagine recommending anyone other than Catherine Geary. Every facet of my case was handled perfectly. She was an absolute delight to work with from start to finish. If I need legal representation again in the future, I will absolutely use Geary & Geary again without hesitation.

Review by former client of Attorney Catherine M. Geary
I was represented by Attorney Catherine Geary and was glad I had chosen her. Always responded immediately and kept me up to date throughout the beginning to end of my case.

Ethical, Knowledgeable, and Professional
After searching online for a lawyer to represent me in a Social Security Disability appeal, I made an appointment with Attorney Catherine Geary because she seemed to observe high ethical standards in her practice. Following an initial consultation, Attorney Geary believed my medical condition met Social Security's definition of disability.  She described the process involved and set reasonable expectations for an appeal. She was thorough in preparing for the hearing and ensured that all the medical evidence was presented. Attorney Geary stayed on top of the details of my case and communicated regularly with me as the appeal date approached. To my great relief, we won the appeal after a hearing with the judge.  I am so grateful for the effort Attorney Geary put into my case, believing in it's merits even when I had given up hope. The successful outcome meant financial relief for my family, early Medicare qualification for me and the ability for my husband to retire on time rather than continue to work beyond retirement age in order to provide me with medical insurance. If you are on the fence about hiring Attorney Catherine Geary, meet with her for an honest evaluation about your situation and trust that she will give you excellent guidance. I enthusiastically recommend her and personally plan to bring all my future legal business to her.

An excelent, hard working person who will always have your best intrest in mind.
Catherine worked hard to make sure I was represented in the best way possible. She always got right back to me when I called with a question. She kept me informed and spoke to me with great respect. She was able to close the case in a timely manner. In a time of emotional turmoil, Catherine was always there to help. Hands down most professional attorney around.

The absolute best for all of your legal needs !
To anyone thinking of using the Geary's services I can tell you that I have absolutely no regrets and nothing but praise for the entire firm. We unfortunately had to use their services for a class action suit and everyone there was very caring and understanding of our delicate situation. They were there day and night from start to finish with a personalized touch because they truly do believe in and care about your cause. On a better note we have been able to use their services for real estate transactions as well and I am very impressed and pleased with the attention to detail with which they have handled our transaction. They were very thorough and made sure we were completing all aspects of our sale, some of which we were not even aware of, yet they were sure to bring to our attention. I would highly recommend the Geary's for any of your legal needs.
