I hired The Geller Law Group (Laurie Neff, Deborah Boddie and Chandra S.) to represent me in my divorce case. They're extremely professional, client service-focused, knowledgeable and remarkable. The outcome was excellent and exceptional job..The firm is outstanding. I would highly recommend The Geller Law Group to anyone needing family law representation in Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland area. Best family law firm in the whole wide world!
