    Bill helped me with a contentious divorce that involved parental rights and responsibilities for a special needs child. He always advocated for "the child's best interest."

    The entire office was completely professional, helpful and demanded such a high level of respect. It was halfway through my case when I switched to Bill. At my initial consult I knew that he was amazing when he was able to validate my concerns but give me applicable solutions to address these concerns in court. There was a complete shift in the case. Originally, I was stressed overwhelmed and constantly felt like I had to check and double check on everything. For example, with my original attorney, the discovery that was turned in was a pile of receipts in a manila envelop, however, after Bill took over the case we actually received real discovery. Bill was completely fair and selfless when he acknowledged that my case was best served outside the court and recommended us to a parent coordinator, which saved my sanity and thousands of dollars. The entre staff was available, competent and always put me at ease. I cannot say enough good about the entire office.

  • Never-ending Ex

    Posted by a client

    Unfortunately, I have an ex-wife that never stops wanting to take me to court in hopes for more money. Mr. Geary has always stood firm and represented me in a fact based, no drama manner. He is honest and trustworthy, and aggressively supports his clients with such integrity. I sincerely appreciated how he supported me with great passion during our depositions and through the negotiations. Bill's high level of experience afforded him the ability to manage my case with precision and guide me accurately through the entire process. I also appreciated his calm approach, which makes you feel like everything is going to be ok, despite the circumstances. If you are able to secure Bill as your lawyer, I'm certain you will not be disappointed!

  • Amazing attorney with an amazing staff

    Bill (and his staff) always kept us informed, responded quickly to our emails and questions, and even took time away from his own vacation to help make sure we knew what was happening with our custody case. He made it easy to trust him, because he showed us that he could be trusted. Knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, confident, realistic: these are just a few words I would use to describe him. And, don't forget "funny". Having a good laugh during a very difficult and stressful process, is much appreciated! We couldn't have asked for a better attorney.

    I now have a house full of very happy children, a husband who's comforted knowing his son is home with us where he belongs, and a very optimistic outlook on our future. And it's all thanks to Bill and his amazing crew. I can't thank them enough.

    Bill is highly knowledgeable, dependable, and always answers your emails, phone calls, etc. promptly. He has helped me achieve the outcomes that I have sought in my cases by offering sound advice, as well as being truthful in what to expect with my situation. I would not trust anyone else with representing me!

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    I hired Mr. Geary to help me with what had been until that time an extremely long (approximately six years from inception), difficult (very expensive, with little to show for it), and acrimonious interstate case involving child support, custody, visitation, and multiple contempt of court actions. At the time, I felt that my chances of getting to court at all, much less winning were next to hopeless, based upon my previous progress. Mr. Geary was one of a few lawyers whom I contacted via email based on strengths of compared resumes and he responded via phone immediately. He reviewed the facts of my case and gave me what I felt, and still feel was a very honest assessment of the situation from a legal options available point of view. Once retained, Mr. Geary went about my case conscientiously, methodically, and with what I felt was exemplary professionalism. It was soon apparent to me that Mr. Geary is very detail-oriented, not one to leave anything to chance, and is one to do his homework. While under my charge, Mr. Geary, for example, was aware of and concerned with not only winning our case, but also on winning any follow-on appeals, demonstrating to me an ability to think ahead such that a win now would not be lost later on some administrative technicality. He served me invaluably and compassionately as a counselor, giving me his best, unvarnished estimate of our chances, and clearly kept my desires at the forefront of his efforts. I always felt that Mr. Geary and I were a team, communicating and collaborating constantly, via email, phone, and in person to the point such that I came to consider him less of an attorney on retainer and more of a trusted friend. I still consider him as such. When it was finally time to argue our case in court, Mr. Geary was obviously very well prepared himself, and took the time to ensure that I felt so as well through rehearsals, mock questioning, and war-gaming. He argued our case brilliantly, using a mixture of written, taped, and photographic evidence as well as the testimony of expert witnesses. His performance was flawless in every respect. I could not have asked for a better effort, one that was clearly worth much more than for what I had paid him. Child custody cases are serious business and can be emotionally charged in the extreme, but Mr. Geary maintained a wonderful balance of being empathetic with my situation as a counselor, while at the same time being a quiet, yet doggedly tenacious litigator. His handling of our adversary, once finally in court was masterful to the point of being almost entertaining. He doesn't engage in loud theatrics and showboating in the courtroom as if on TV. He instead is the calm, cool, level-headed professional, prepared in every aspect for every possible eventuality and was never surprised. His blend of being a gentleman with genuine feelings for the plight of his clients coupled with his unlimited willingness to do whatever is needed to help them permeates his staff, with whom I was also extremely pleased and regard very fondly. There are few things in life more important or precious to most of us than our children, and I can think of no better, higher, or stronger endorsement than to say I trusted Bill with the welfare of my only daughter and would do so again willingly, without reservation and, further, I would recommend him unhesitatingly to anyone in need of similar services. Mr. Geary is simply an outstanding attorney and an even better person in whom I am extremely well pleased. Excellent in every respect.

    Bill Geary handled my divorce/custody case with exceptional professionalism and expertise.
    Our case had a number of unique points dealing with international custody, and Bill was able to gather significant resources for our case and provide valuable guidance that put us in an advantageous position when the case went to court. His knowledge and experience of the court system and how it works was both impressive and reassuring to us and was instrumental in helping us to navigate successfully through the long and difficult legal process.
    He was always honest and up-front about everything (even about things that you may not want to hear) and responded promptly to all communications. His fee may be a little higher than others, but it is very fair and was money well-spent.
