When you are fighting for the most important people in your life, you need a formidable ally. I have had three previous “high-powered” attorneys and interviewed many, many others, and none of them come close to Geoff. Not only is he a shrewd attorney, a deft strategist, and aggressive in the court room, but he is an amazing human being. He cares about his clients. You are not just “another case” for him in our very broken family court system. You are an important person and the outcome of your case matters to him personally, something you will not find often. I have a very long road ahead in my battle, and knowing that I have Geoff there to fight for me gives me incredible peace of mind.
Mr. Platnick is the attorney/counselor I was indeed blessed to have contending for my child’s best interest recently. He is consistently attentive, empathetic, experienced, detailed, conciliatory, sympathetic, solicitous, shrewd, strategic, strength imparting. In a ludicrously over-populated profession, Geoff Platnick is a rare gentleman and a darn good attorney. His recognition to greater responsibility and certain success is assured; I am glad to add my honest endorsement to that process.
I interviewed several top lawyers for my difficult divorce. Geoff came highly recommended from multiple sources, and I realized why soon after he took my case. Geoff exhibited expert knowledge, had impeccable courtroom presence and took excellent care of me throughout my divorce process. In addition, he truly cares about his clients and works diligently to ensure they receive a great outcome, which I certainly did. I could not have asked for better representation.
Geoff is a pro’s pro. His knowledge of family law is second to none. In addition, his ability to provide timely and accurate communication and updates is unmatched. If considering any family law endeavor, I would highly recommend Geoffrey Platnick.
I highly recommend Geoff. He and his all-star team assisted me through a difficult and contentious divorce and child custody case. In Court, Geoff’s knowledge and personal relationships really assisted in the positive outcome of my case. Geoff was very efficient with his involvement throughout the case to keep costs reasonable and was helpful in directing me to gather documents and information for effective pleadings and strong strategies in Court. Geoff and his team really went to bat for me, and were prepared and effective in Court. I am very grateful for his services.
Geoff Platnick as one of the finest Family Law attorneys that I have worked with. I admire all aspects of his approach to a case. Geoff is thorough in every aspect of his case preparation. He ensures that his client is ready to be deposed and to face cross examination, and he discusses his questioning of others with his client and experts. Geoff knows how to disagree without being disagreeable and is ready to take on any sort of opposition. He is a go to guy on high profile cases or any case.
Geoff has seen plenty of situations and how they play out. Geoff has an expert understanding of the process. Geoff does a great job of communication and letting you know what’s going on by including you in his plans and actions. At the end of the day, every one of our decisions was client inclusive. He can be very aggressive in his strategy, while with the same breath, he can be pragmatic, asking you how you are doing.
I am a individual with very high standards and always looking for the best in everything .When I decided to start the divorce process. I interviewed many lawyers. I decided to hire him. Because, I did not get the feeling that I am only another client to him. He listened to me and my expectation during this process, like no other lawyer have. But what I found even more fascinating was, the level of compassion he had. If you are going through this process you know, you are sad, angry, tearful, emotional, and at times unreasonable. He was supportive through every single step of the way. MY children are my world I asked him to get my kids and he got me the best custody deal ever. I can owe him for the rest of my life . Bottom line, If you are going through this nasty process, then you need a lawyer who is very knowledgeable, firm, very good in what he does and more importantly, someone who sees you as a person and actually wants to help you , rather than just see you as another r client to generate money to pay bills. He is your man. I have recommended him to many friends and every body has said the same thing about him.
Geoff helped me win a 4 year divorce that involved disputed legal and physical custoday. It was an complex case that needed an attorney who was diligent, pro-active, and aggressive.
