Fantastic attorney! Extremely responsive and easy to work with!
Jessica is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend her. She was extremely responsive, to the point, and interested in helping resolve the issue, unlike other attorneys who just want to spend more hours. Not only did she listen to my concerns, she also gave me options and made me feel more comfortable about the entire process. Highly recommend Jessica Geller!

Won’t give up!!
Jessica Geller has been and still with me for over 3 years battling the saddest case ever. Jessica has gone over and beyond trying to help me. She has stood by my side fighting and fighting for justice. She is the Greatest most trusting attorney I have ever met. She has become family to me and is always concerned with just me and also the case at hand. I don’t know what I would do without her. Through my cancer she has been by my side and has helped me in ways that no lawyer would be expected to do. I recommend her and when this is all over, I will never forget what she has done for me and my case. I didn’t get just a great lawyer but a Great friend too.

Thorough, compassionate, prepared
I felt assured with someone like Jessica Geller on my side during what was the most difficult time of my life. I hired her as my divorce lawyer after a consultation with her put me at ease. Her compassion and attention to detail is unmatched. Jessica was always reasonable. I believe her work as a mediator is crucial. She fights for what is fair and just without causing unnecessary financial burdens. Her honesty made me aware of my options without making promises that might never come to fruition. Jessica was thorough, she educated herself on a very complicated retirement/pension plan and when the time came she knew every detail like the back of her hand. I was extremely impressed and she made me feel secure. The financial outcome allowed me to navigate my new journey as a single parent with a little less stress, giving the best outcome for my children and for me. I can't say enough positive things about her and I really am eternally grateful for Jessica and her incredible assistant, Tina, for getting me through such a difficult time period. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Savvy and Ethical Advocate
I hired Jessica Geller after consulting several attorneys, she was the one that I was confident in after a few minutes into the consultation. She never made unrealistic promises or try to withhold information like some attorneys do to try to lure you into hiring them. She was straightforward and forthcoming from the beginning until the end. What I appreciated was that she always gave me options, telling me the pros and cons. She never tried to overbill me. She always tried settling and explained to me and the other side that it was best for the child and it was wise financially. Sometimes she convinced them and sometimes they still wanted a fight; but all along I was always at peace because I knew I was in good hands. It made it easier for me to keep calm because she was in the battle so I didn't have to be. She made a unbearable situation bearable and all with great equanimity. It helped that she is a mediator so I had a mediator and an attorney in one.

Excellent
Jessica helped me through what was the most difficult and exhausting experience of my life. She is calm, focused and sharp as a tack. She showed empathy for both my wife and me during our collaborative divorce while helping me to understand what was truly fair. I really don't know how I could have made it through the process/ordeal without Jessica's help. I know I made the right decision when I hired Jessica as my collaborative divorce attorney.

Quick!
I would highly recommend Jessica Geller as a family law attorney. Not only is she extremely caring and kind, but she is very efficient and quick at what she does. I was always able to contact her quickly and would always receive a response in a very timely manner. I was able to finalize my divorce in a few months... which I’ve heard is not common. Thank you Jessica for your compassion and professionalism.

Honest and Effective
I decided to represent myself during my divorce signing a blank check to a Lawyer at the time, but when I got to mediation I felt very uneasy going in without an expert to back me up. Jessica had no problem in taking the case, represented me as expected and helped me reach an agreement that was beneficial to me. I must say I do not trust Lawyers, many of them first look at your bank account and assets and then figure how much of that they can pocket, but this was not the case. I must say Jessica is an honest Lawyer that did exactly what she was hired to do and billed accordingly. I would highly recommend Jessica to any good friend going through divorce.

The best there is...
I retained Attorney Geller for a child support and custody modification order after my initial divorce proceedings left me feeling as though I was getting the short end of the stick. I originally used divorce without war which was a huge mistake. While my custody was set at 50/50 the time share was inconvenient and my child support was grossly higher than what was required. After reviewing my documents she was knowledgeable enough to know right off the bat that this was an open and shut case that could be modified quickly. She kept me up to date as the process was moving and made it as pain free as possible. She also would show law details and support calculations to re-assure me when I was feeling less confident. My case was resolved in less than 2 months which is pretty fast for Broward county FL. to put it simply, She cares about her clients, gives you straightforward answers and is very well prepared with information and legal terminology to backup her honest opinion regarding the specifics of a case. She outclasses any other attorney I have used for family law and is worth every penny!!

Surrogacy
Felt very comfortable with her, always keeping us informed with quick responses to our emails and phone calls. The process has been smooth, well explained, easy to comprehend and performed in a very timely manner.

A very personable and relatable lawyer
Me and my husband were trying to have a second child and our fertility clinic advised us that I would never be able to carrier another child my only option would be to have a surrogate. From there, my fertility clinic gave me a couple names of lawyers that I would need to get in touch with to do the proper paper work. My first call was to Jessica Lassman Geller she meet with us personally that same week and was very kind and relatable to our situation. She made this impersonal process very comforting. I would defiantly refer her for her professionalism, knowledge and kindness.

Not your average run of the mill attorney....
Jessica took over my child custody case from my initial attorney who became ill. Originally, I thought I would choose to go back with him when he got better. As my case progressed, I found that was not the case. She had done her homework and jumped right in, not missing a beat. She was familiar with what was going on, made recommendations and was always immediately responsive to what I did or did not want to do. She always very clearly advised me of the pros and cons moving forward. Throughout the process, she never lost patience listening to me complain or cry or just calling or emailing about something to set my mind at ease. Though you could say, she is just doing her job, she has a special way of dealing with people, never making you feel like you are bothering her or asking a stupid question. Not only has she acted as my legal counsel, she became my confidant on other levels as well. She is very knowledgeable and responsive and a wonderful attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good attorney. You will not be disappointed!

Great to work with
Ms Geller was extremely knowledgable, rational and always kept her cool and on task. I have recommended her several times and although no one really comes out a winner in a divorce, I can say that we were very pleased with the work that Ms Geller did for us.

A very helpful and considerate Lawyer.
I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate Jessica L Geller. She new very little about me plus my strong Cuban accent probably made more difficult. Nevertheless, she was determined to help, professional and compassionate while getting involve in my case and representing me very well. She is very capable of fighting for justice. I respect her discernment, work ethics, and kindness. During a time of great distress she has made me feel well represented legally. She has been most generous.

A Superb Lawyer!
I am extremely grateful to attorney Jessica Geller for her guidance, support, and generosity in helping me get through my paternity settlement agreement. I called Jessica Geller because, although I assumed it would be simple and straightforward, I still needed help figuring out all the paperwork and procedures to make sure that I would get through the process quickly and smoothly. I am very glad I did because it surely was not as simple or amicable as I anticipated. Jessica Geller came strongly recommended from a family member that used her services years prior for a custody dispute. Her knowledge and expertise play a significant part in the successful outcome of the very difficult trail. I was very confident in using her services after the recommendation I received. From the very beginning Jessica Geller was generous with her time on the phone and in her office, gave me sound advice, and agreed to help me with paternity settlement agreement at a very reasonable price. The process was very vigorous with many obstacles and frustrations but Jessica was always there to give me sound advice and to put my mind at ease. Final settlement agreement was agreed upon and I am very happy with the outcome and will always be grateful to Jessica Geller for getting me through it. I don’t believe I would have been as successful representing myself or going to another attorney. I would gladly use her services in the future and recommend her to family and friends.

A Great South Florida Family Law Attorney
Jessica assisted me in my contentious divorce. She was always available to me which is important in the chaos of a divorce. Jessica was fully prepared and provided me with personal service. She was able to go court and get an injuction precluding my ex-wife's boyfriend from residing in my house. She answered my questions and guided me towards an equitable settlement. Her assistance avoided a costly trial. I highly recommend Jessica for your Matrimonial case.
