“Maria Simon is an award-winning attorney who serves as the Geller Law Group’s Managing Partner.
A Detroit-area native, Maria has always wanted to help people — and believed, from an early age, that the law was the best way to do it. Following her graduation from the Honors Program at the University of Michigan, Maria moved to Washington, DC to attend law school at American University and has been a Washingtonian ever since. Maria now resides in Bethesda, Maryland with her husband and three sons.
Maria joined The Geller Law Group in 2013 and has driven its fast-growing transformation from a two-woman shop into a one of the top rated mid-sized law firms in the region. The firm was founded on the notion that it should be possible for partners to also be parents. The New York Times profiled Maria in 2015 for helping devise and implement this principle — something that is still considered novel in the legal field.
While Maria’s practice is quite versatile, she specializes in family law, divorce, custody disputes, business law, and litigation. She helps families navigate the complexities of separation in a humane way, represents businesses (both large corporations and mom-and-pop enterprises) and individuals in their tort and contract disputes, drafts appellate briefs, and has several favorable decisions published on Lexis, an industry legal database, exemplifying her achievements.
Maria has been continually recognized as Virginia Business’ Legal Elite and selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for Virginia and the District of Columbia. She speaks frequently at events about work-life balance and the challenges of being a working parent.”
