When It Comes to Family Law,
We Know Every Angle.
Alisa J. Geffner Esq.
Why did you become an attorney?
Helping children faced with adversity and difficult life situations is one of my greatest passions. I directed my efforts toward such causes throughout my life. In deciding upon a career path, I believed that becoming a lawyer would enable me to make a great impact in the lives of children. Toward this end, during my third year of law school, I participated in the Hofstra Child Advocacy Clinic, representing children involved in child abuse and neglect cases. Advocating in court on behalf of these children was an invigorating experience which allowed me to develop my litigation and dispute resolution skills early on in my career. It also provides me with a unique sensitivity towards child custody cases and parenting.
Carolyn D. Kersch Esq.
What makes you different from other divorce attorneys?
The answer is simple–going through my parents’ divorce! This real life experience enables me to relate to my clients and the concerns that they have for their children. I want to ensure that the divorce process is handled in a respectful manner, where the children are protected.
As a psychology major in pursuit of my undergraduate degree, I developed the skills necessary to enable me to communicate effectively with my clients and really “hear” them. This allows me to guide them through the divorce process, and ensure that their emotions do not cloud their ability to make reasoned decisions, which avoids protracted litigation.
