About Gena

Learn Gena’s areas of practice.

AT FOURNIER LAW, WE WORK FOR YOUR FAMILY AS IF IT WERE OUR OWN.

I was born in Miami, Florida but moved to Boston, Georgia as a young girl where I lived until I graduated from Central High School (now Thomas County Central High).   I attended and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado and went on to graduate cum laude with a law degree from the University of Miami, School of Law.  

 

I am licensed and have practiced in Pennsylvania and Florida.  In 2008, relocated from Northeastern Pennsylvania to Tallahassee, Florida.  I have been practicing here since 2008.  I have been as Managing Member of Fournier Law since it’s inception but, prior to that, as Managing Member of Fournier, Norris, & Wagner, PLLC.    

 

For the last several years, my legal practice has focused predominantly on complex family law matters.  These types of cases are frequently emotionally charged involve those individuals we care most about - our children and significant others.  They also involve the things we care most about - our homes and livelihoods.

 

Because I value both, I work diligently to help our clients through these difficult times by not only providing legal assistance but, frequently, helping our clients establish a strategy for their new norm - their future.  Sometimes it is as simple as providing a shoulder to cry on and sometimes it is as difficult and recommending drug and alcohol treatment or mental health counseling.  I believe my role as attorney and counselor is to think outside the box to be an advocate for my clients, to guide them through the process, and to preserve what matters most to them.

I hired Gena and am so thankful for the diligent work and attention to detail with my case. She had a great team who saw probably the worst of me, but every day showed up for me. If you have to go to Gena, you are probably already in one of the most difficult situations in your life. She knows this and takes a vested interest in you, your case, and the outcome. Gena the law and has an incredible reputation. I always said, I loved seeing her team, but I hope I never see them again. They are so good, that came to fruition.

Excellent!
When I needed an attorney to handle my complicated and unique divorce and custody case, I met with several attorneys here in Tallahassee. Gena Fournier was the only one whom I felt would focus on my son's best interests. Getting to the Final Hearing and Judgment was a long and challenging process (non-compliance from my son's father and his attorney ). There were several hearings and depositions along the way - and I felt that she did a great job working for my son's interests (and mine) throughout. However, it was at the Final Hearing when I knew that I could not have made a better choice when it came to hiring an attorney. She was extraordinarily well prepared and helped me prepare as well. And when the Final Judgment finally came, I could not have asked for better results. If you are in need of a divorce attorney, you will be going through a very difficult time. It might be a time when it will be difficult to trust anyone or to hope that things will turn out okay. But if you hire Gena Fournier, you will have an attorney you can trust to be on your side and fight for the best possible results.

Excellent attention to detail and very client centered.
We had a convoluted 35 year old case that she was able to untangle and be successful in solving.

Hire them!
Gena, and everyone at Fournier law are outstanding! Both, Gena and her mother Patty helped me through one of the toughest family law cases. I went from being an every other weekend dad, and now I am the custodial parent. Because of Fournier Law, I was able to relocate my daughter out-of-state to attend a specialized school for her needs. Gena, listens to you, she advocates for you, and she puts her best-case forward. If you're in the process of hiring an attorney, you probably already feel defeated and scared. Hire Fournier Law. Hire Gena. They care about their clients and they know how to win.

Blessing from god!
My divorce/ custody case took 2 long years and if it wasn’t for Gena Fournier as my attorney I don’t know how I would of got threw it. She worked non stop countless hours on my case for my children and I. Iv never seen attorney like her she truly cares for her clients and will never give up on you. She becomes Family and will treat you like family. I could go on and on how amazing she is and how hiring her would be the best decision you could make! I wouldn’t be were I’m at if it wasn’t for her and I’m so blessed to of been able to have her fight for my children and I! Seriously don’t look any further pick Gena for your case she’s in my book the best attorney in Florida and you won’t regret it once!❤️

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY
Attorney Fournier represented a member of my family. I was present during attorney/client conferences and court hearings. Having been in law enforcement, I have dealt with a lot of attorneys. I can state without reservation that Attorney Fournier is one of the best attorneys I have ever come across. She was always well prepared, gave sound advice, an is incredibly adept at getting essential points across to judges. As a result, she was victorious on behalf of her client. Her level of skill, dedication to bringing about justice, and her compassion for her client is beyond excellent.
