    Mr. Platnick is extremely knowledgeable, professional and kind, and was a pleasure to work with. During my divorce it was evident that he was a no-nonsense, no-game playing gentlemen, and the judge appreciated that and the case was wrapped up as quickly as it could have. Mr. Platnick was always straight forward and made everything easy to understand. I had researched and found his fees were fair, so I was able to afford my divorce without feeling a financial pinch. It's clearly not about the money for him. His response time to my calls and questions was very quick and I never once felt like I was a bother or that I was being put off. Mr. Platnick was quite thorough in his info gathering process and is a great writer. I have referred him to two friends who have also had positive experiences and results and I will continue to recommend him highly to anyone I know that needs family law services. Read less

    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. Read less

    I hired Geoff in my divorce and he has used his knowledge of the local system to strategically take my case through the necessary steps to get me custody of my daughter and help maintain my family business. He has a keen memory for the facts, can prioritize what is most important and understands how each of the local judges are all very different. His ability to navigate the law and the facts, as well as think on his feet, has been invaluable to my case. Read less

    Wonderful person and attorney! I have had the privileged of having Geoff as my attorney in a custody case for years. Before Geoff I sought out counsel with 3 other attorney’s in the Maryland/DC area only to have have wasted my money with the other lawyers. I will never use another attorney again, Geoff is trustworthy, honest and creative. Truly one of a kind. I also would like to comment on his staff. Through this long battle I have never encountered a staff or attorney that was so fantastic. Read less

    Geoffrey offered clear and pragmatic counsel on what my rights were, even when it made me uncomfortable to discuss. He was a strong advocate for me and also had a warm and kind manner that I greatly appreciated during the most difficult time of my life. He, and his partner Scott, are very hands on and stayed in touch every step of the way, although the associate Geoffrey works with is also great. Read less

    Fighting for custody was the most stressful period of my life. Geoff went above and beyond for me. My case was complicated and Geoff took a genuine interest and caring for my thoughts and feelings. While lots of lawyers could have taken advantage of my fear of the process, he talked with me, made me feel comfortable, made sure I understood everything, was always ready for court, and his skill ultimately got the other side to settle. He has helped me so much. Read less
