Very professional
Allison worked on my case (child custody) during the COVID-19 crisis, where she worked from home. I mention this because not once did I ever feel she was neglecting my case. She remained professional, responded to emails in a timely manner, thoroughly answered any question I asked, and still ensured documents were filed with the courts. This really allowed my mind to be at ease throughout the process, especially seeing her dedication to my case. What I appreciate most is she always considered the betterment of my child when it came to making a recommendation or decision. Ultimately, my case was settled, and I owe that to Allison.

Compassionate, knowledgable, results driven lawyer made for a smooth process
Allison was phenomenal throughout my entire process. She listened to my situation and concerns without prejudice, and worked towards a conclusion that would be agreeable and beneficial to all parties. Payment was very reasonable, and when the retainer was exhausted, the firm worked with me to set up a payment plan that covered overages. I have nothing but positive feedback on my experience.

Adoption
Working with attorney Allison Gerli and Paralegal Katie Vatterott on my sons step parent adoption was so amazing. I started the process very early and they were both willing to hear me out and answer all questions so I had an understanding of how the process worked and when to officially get the process started. They continued to work with my husband and I through out the entire process and responded to all emails in a timely manor. I never felt like I was being ignored or wasn't sure what happened next . I highly recommend The Center for Family Law.

Tremendous Help Through the Divorce
I highly recommend Allison. She is very professional with the right mix of professionalism, kindness, and compassion. Allison was always available to answer any of my questions or address my concerns through this difficult process.

Very professional and personal
Very happy with Allison!! Had a ugly custody battle with my kids father and Allison was very informative on what my best options were to make it quick and painless. She has still been more than helpful with certain issues that have come up since our custody was settled. She has been nothing but supportive of my situation and helps me to look out for the best interest of my child. I definitely recommend her if you need someone that will be up front and honest but also very understanding.

Skilled and thoughtful
Allison Gerli and Ann Bauer are wonderful attorneys to work with. They are very thoughtful and skilled. They always communicated with me in a very timely manner. Going through a divorce, especially with custody issues, is very difficult. I was very lucky to have Allison and Ann as my attorneys.

Allison Gerli
Allison Gerli has been my attorney for going on five years. She handled my divorce and subsequent modification when my ex husband took me back to court. I could not be more pleased with this incredible balance that she has of walking me through every legal detail, but also the personal touch and compassion that she extended in these most stressful times. I knew I was in the best of hands when it came to the best possible outcome for me and my children. I have every confidence that she fully knows the law, the pulse of possible outcomes, and simply became my calm as she worked the legal angles for my family. She is thorough, knowledgable, compassionate, and fought hard for the best outcome for all involved. I remain deeply grateful.

Lawyer review
Allison was easy to communicate with and always returned with her responses quickly. She was professional, helpful, understanding and empathetic in a difficult time for me. I would definitely use Allison for any other needs for a lawyer I may have and would recommend her for her services to anyone.

Fantastic Family Attorney
After our consultation, it only took us only minutes to decide to hire Allison. From our consultation on, she kept us informed and continuously updated. We were made aware of the cost of each step throughout the process of stepparent adoption which was incredibly important to us. Allison was very quick to respond to any question we had no matter the time of day. If she was unavailable, someone from the office always reached out. After the court proceedings, we had some issues getting an updated birth certificate from the state. Allison and her staff helped us navigate the complications and get new documents in our hands. We will continue to be grateful for Allison and the staff at Family Law Center for making a difficult situation easier to navigate. <3

Dedicated throughout process
Allison was very empathetic throughout the whole process, which took a bit longer than we expected. She answered any questions that I had promptly and was always considerate of my time. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me navigate through a very sticky situation and in the end she helped the ex and I to come to an agreement where my daughter is happy. I really think nobody actually "wins" in family court but this experience was darn close.

Parenting plan modification
Allison was very professional, but also compassionate during the entire modification process. She listened to my concerns and worked to meet all of my needs. In the end, we reached an agreement in the modification and did not have to present in front of a judge; however, we were more than prepared to do so. I highly recommend Allison Gerli in any family law matter.
