Professional and knowledgeable
Genesis was kind, professional and knowledgeable. She handled my matter and got me a great result all while putting me at ease during a very stressful time. Her subject matter expertise, patience and professionalism was outstanding. I would trust her with all my matters in the future.

Great experience!
Ms. Fisher was such a huge help to me! I don't know what I would have done without her. She's smart, a great-listener, and simply gets stuff done! She was always available and incredibly helpful. I couldn't recommend her more highly!

Genesis is the best!
In all the years I have been dealing w the very emotional, heart aching reality that is my pursuit of guardianship for my youngest daughter Moriah, Genesis is literally the first person EVER that made me feel I was 100% percent listened to! Years of dealing w lawyers, psychologists, therapists etc and telling my story of my journey to save my child, left me drained, frustrated and with a mild heart condition from dealing with all the drama. Genesis' gentleness and presence really meant something to me. She really heard me! And that has made a difference in my renewed efforts to re-try for my daughters guardianship again! I don't think Genesis realizes how much she has helped me but i am so grateful for her presence, her work, and her heart! :-)

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Fisher was able to have my case moved to an earlier court date AND convince the Assistant Distract Attorney to dismiss the case 6 weeks early.

She is amazing!
Ms. Genesis was thoughtful, thorough, and timely, with an extremely sensitive topic. She showed great compassion and flexibility with what was requested of her and went above and beyond with her services. I would highly recommend her for any future mediation needs. She is rooted in social justice principles and committed to finding solution. We couldn't find a better person for the job.
