Reviews and Testimonials

  • Christine Szolkowski

    - Jun 21 2023 Ms. Geiger was neutral, fair, and very knowledgeable. She explained the pros and cons of separation, divorce and what we needed to do to mitigate the financial repercussions associated with ending a marriage. The terms of the mediation agreement were used without many changes to draw up the final property settlement agreement for an uncontested divorce. She is ethical, honest and compassionate, which are qualities needed in divorce and separation cases. I highly recommend her.
  • Lucianne Smith

    - May 22 2023 Joan was professional and kind from the first meeting we had. She guided us through the process and was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of NJ Law. Joan had very good suggestions and was willing to talk "straight" about difficult issues. She was responsive to all emails and phone calls. I would highly recommend her.

  • Patrick

  • DE

    - Nov 19 2020 Joan was a pleasure to work with during a very difficult time. Initially, I consulted a lawyer for my divorce which inflamed the situation with my ex. After working with Joan, my and I were finally able to come to an agreement on custody and have an amicable divorce. Joan was able to again assist me when I wanted to move out of state after our divorce. My ex and I now coparent very well and my daughter is happy and secure. None of this would be possible if we had a contentious divorce. I highly recommend Joan!

    - Aug 26 2020 Joan is awesome, she helped us to make an even decision regarding our separation. She even recognized the abusive outbursts and directed me to a place to get assistance for my children regarding that. She knows exactly what she is doing and I would gladly recommend her!

    - Aug 01 2020 In my experience of separation/divorce Joan was very helpful. She seemed very impartial through out the process.

    - Apr 27 2020 Joan was very helpful in making both divorcees happy.
  • KF

    - Apr 02 2020 No one ever talks about where to start when you decide to separate and look into getting a divorce but mediation was the way I wanted to go. Not knowing where to start I went on a Google search. I typed in top-rated mediators (in my state) and Joan Geiger popped up among others. I did my research and checked three mediators that appealed to me. I checked them out on several review sites including Avvo and NJAPM. I decided to go with Ms. Geiger. I reached out to her via email, she called me back the very next day. We spoke at length about my situation, what I wanted to happen, she asked VERY prudent questions...I felt that she genuinely cared about ME! Joan Geiger talked about her experience and how she could help me. This whole conversation on the phone was key. Other mediators would only talk with me with a scheduled consultation and those consultations were NOT free! I was a bit turned off by that. Ms. Geiger was open about her fee (if we proceeded) and we scheduled a meeting to get started and told me the things I needed so as to expedite the process. At our first meeting she was beyond professional asking a lot of questions, very knowledgeable, amiable and true to her word as we wrapped things up in the time that she said it was going to take. Separation and divorce is no easy thing to go through and it helps (beyond words) to have a professional who knows their stuff and cares about you on your side to help you. While our divorce is still pending, I am very happy to be working with Joan Geiger and I would recommend her highly to anyone dealing with a divorce especially when its an amicable one.
  • Jp

    - Mar 27 2020 Our experience was really good. Joan was very impartial, professional and compassionate. Our situation was odd in that we ultimately reconsiled. But would highly recommend her services to anyone who is needing to separate or divorce.
  • Ruchika Anand

    - Mar 27 2020 I was extremely happy and highly recommend her.
  • Fertig Steve

    - Jan 05 2020 In an effort to resolve an irreconcilable family dispute my attorney suggested mediation and strongly recommended Joan Geiger. Through Joan’s efforts, a fair and equitable settlement was negotiated and a costly trial was avoided. Her empathetic style and professional skill as a facilitator should be welcomed by anyone looking for an alternative, cost effective approach to conflict resolution.

  • Mark Windt

    - Jan 08 2019 Joan was very helpful in the process. I was a bit reluctent to meet with Joan with both our lawyers also present but it made a great deal of sense in the settlement process. We agreed to terms in just two meetings with Joan. She is a great mediator and she drove the process in an organized manor.
  • joan geiger

    - Nov 23 2018 I am a colleague of Brian's and worked with him for years on a very complex matter. The clients and the other professionals in the case, including a realtor and Brian's then supervising partner all respected Brian and appreciated that he often went above and beyond to do his job and help the people in the case. He has brains and heart.

  • Christine T.

    - Jun 03 2018 Ms. Geiger has been our mediator since 2001, when we first got separated. Through the entire process, she has been fair and pleasant. While going through a divorce is never a pleasant experience, I can honestly say that handling the ongoing child support adjustments through mediation has been the best thing we decided to do. She listens to us both, takes out concerns into consideration and brings us to an outcome that we can both live with in the end. I would definitely recommend her.

    Jun 12 2018 I routinely refer my cases to mediation with Joan. She is reasonable, relatable and a confident mediator. Her down to earth demeanor coupled with her encyclopedic knowledge of the law makes her one of the finest mediators in the State. She is an asset to anyone looking to amicably resolve their divorce in a cost effective way.
  • marguerite baranowski

    Mar 31 2018 I think Joan is a very compassionate person with people going through a divorce. Many a time one or the other become upset with decisions that may not go the way planned, but somehow she always turns things around with couples with a compromising plan. All in all she is a very successful mediator and even has received an award for being one of the best meditator in the state of New Jersey.
  • Marc Pollak

    Jan 27 2017 Joan is a true professional. She handled our delicate situation with care and fairness. I would highly recommend her services if you have tried everything to save your marriage and failed. She guided us through this difficult time and treated both sides with fairness and dignity. says:
