Recommendation for J. Christian Conrad
I am a recent client of Christian's office. I would, and do, recommend Christian to all of my friends and family. He is extremely easy to work with and always kept my best interests at heart. From the very beginning he took the time to get to know my legal issues and how they affected myself and my family. He was incredibly informative and always had answers to my questions. It is very comforting to know that I've found someone as capable and trustworthy as Christian that I can draw on in the future.

Totally blown away
Christian Conrad and his entire team are some of the most caring and dedicated people I have ever met in my entire life. You go into these horribly traumatizing situations in life and have to rely on strangers, and what a gift I was given these incredible bearers of light during this horribly dark time. You can count on Christian and his team to genuinely care about your case. The office is organized, well managed, and everyone there makes sure you never fall behind on your case. The office is beautiful and serene. They send copies of what they file, and you’re always informed as a client. Every time I have had to talk to anybody at the office, even during the most horrible times in my case, I was always able to find peace because of the incredibly humanizing experience it is to deal with literally any person there. I have always felt cared about, organized, informed, and respected. After getting to know the amount of law offices that I have in this time in my life, I can safely say that this office is a rare gem and if you’re in Christian Conrad or Chris Gross’ line of sight, you’re not just in a line of sight- you’re in good hands. Not only is this office absolutely outstanding, I had a rare case that it seemed like no one would be familiar with. Just when I felt like I was completely out of luck, Christian took a case nobody wanted to deal with and his team went above and beyond to make this experience as peaceful and organized as possible and I cannot reiterate this enough. They understand what a hard time you’re going through and do everything they can to lighten the load in any way they can. This law firm is an office of angels. I would recommend this office to anyone who was trying to obtain a service for the many services this office covers. Not only did they do an amazing job on my case, they made sure I didn’t lose faith in humanity in the process. If you’re lucky enough to have found Mr. Conrad and he provides the services you’re looking for, I would recommend you make your whole life easier by hiring the attorney that works for you!

Leadership and Expertise
I hired Christian Conrad on the recommendation of a friend. Christian has to dive into a complex and agonizing custody battle due to the lies and false allegations from my ex-husband. Even with the documentation I provided the court to substantiate the lies and false allegations, the Judge ruled in favor of my ex-husband who has a criminal record and an unstable home life. As a teacher, I value integrity and ethical practices. Christian also reflected these core values and demonstrated "best practices" in court. Christian will be honest and direct with the facts instead of sugar coating decisions. His candor is essential to comprehending the law and how it will impact your case. The family court system is flawed and there are no checks and balances for unethical behavior. Christian has been my "voice of reason" throughout this challenging ordeal. Christian Conrad is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield in the court system. His expertise in maneuvering the complexity of various situations prove to be professional and reliable. Christians experience with contentious cases is extensive and knowledgeable. Hiring Christian was the best decision I ever made

Family law. Spousal support, alimony.
Christian is compassionate and truly cares about his client. He is not an attorney who is just interested in billable hours. He is strategic, knowledgeable and has your back.

Great Results
Christian was nothing but professional from the 1st day I consulted with him. He laid out a very honest case scenario and listened to the clients goals and approach. In the end Christian was able to resolve my case in a manner that exceeded my expectations. If I know anyone that needs a family law attorney, Christian is who I'm referring them to.

Child Visitation and Alimony Case Issue
Christian handled my case professionally and with great competence, in spite of the issues created by the divorce having originally taken place in a foreign country. His preparation and logic shown in this case provided me with an equitable solution and helped me avoid responsibility for financial claims that were onerous and questionable in their foundation. I would recommend him highly.

Expertise, Experience and Integrity
Christian Conrad and his team helped make a very painful process manageable. He treated me with compassion and respect and took time to answer all of my questions. It was evident that Christian wanted to make sure I clearly understood the situation and my options at every phase of the divorce proceedings. As the sole breadwinner for my family and the custodial parent of my daughter, I relied on his guidance and support to help navigate me through what was a bewildering and complicated process. Christian’s solid knowledge and breadth of experience ensured a fair outcome for me and my daughter. He was accessible and trustworthy at every turn and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Divorce is an excruciating and painful experience. With Christian as my attorney, I knew the odds were in my favor to secure the best outcome possible for my daughter and me.

Helpful, Knowledgeable and Honest
Christian Conrad is spot on the best attorney I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable and a totally honest. He won't feed you lies or tell you what you want to hear just to get your business. He knows what he's talking about and is there to help. I cannot imagine facing these judges and my ex in court without him. He responds to communication quickly and efficiently and stays one step ahead of your case. Hiring him was simply the best thing that I have ever done.

Professional Team, Great Service and Satisfied
Christian is a great lawyer. He was always available to consult with me and handled everything very professionally, no matter how difficult the situation. He was always prepared and took the time to explain the law in plain English and clearly outlined my options. His staff was also very professional, helpful and available. I was a difficult client as I traveled for work 70% of the time and had to work remotely with Christian and his team. They were awesome at every level, even with my difficult work schedule. Never missed an important date or deadline.

Wisdom and Patience
Christian Conrad made the divorce process as streamlined as it could be. He helped me make wise decisions that would serve me in the future instead of impulsive emotional decisions. His office staff is compassionate and patient.

Top Notch
I interviewed other law offices before deciding on the Geller Conrad Law Group. From my first meeting in their office I knew I had made the right decision. Christian Conrad explained the legal process to me and showed genuine concern for my situation. Mr. Conrad is knowledgeable and very personable. He has kept me informed on all developments and answered my questions promptly. I know Mr. Conrad has other cases, but he handles my case as if it were his only one.
