Why You Should Choose Alexandra Geczi, PLLC Family Law
Divorce can be an extremely difficult process, especially for women. That’s why Alexandra Geczi founded this family law firm — to give women access to a team of divorce attorneys that respected and empowered them to make the best possible choices for themselves and their families. Megan* was one of the women who benefited from a team who believed in her. This is her story.
Megan had always prioritized family and tradition in her life, which made the realization that her marriage was over devastating. As if divorce in and of itself isn’t challenging enough, there was also a strong stigma against separation in Megan’s culture. What would her family think? Would she be shunned for taking these steps?
Her husband made the divorce process difficult and created a lot of conflict, but the Alexandra Geczi, PLLC team was there to give Megan the support she needed to follow through and make the best decisions for her and her family. She achieved her freedom, and she was able to set an incredible example of strength and perseverance for her daughter.
“Alex represented me in my divorce, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without her!
The first time I met Alex, she gave me a good impression by giving me a roadmap of the divorce process. As someone who is very detail-oriented, knowing what to expect is very important. She was personable, listened to me, and I liked the idea of having a female attorney. Alex and her staff are very approachable and always returned my calls, unlike other attorneys I have worked with.
I am still recovering financially, but that will be corrected in a couple years. I am happy to say that life is normal again now, and I am okay with being myself. I am happy answering to myself alone and my friends and family tell me that I look happy. I hope that someday I can return the favor that so many gave me by helping others that are also going through a divorce.”
Despite hardship, Megan achieved the life she deserved, and the expertise and support of the Alexandra Geczi, PLLC team helped her fulfill her dreams. You don’t have to go through the process of divorce alone — contact our Dallas family law office today for a free case evaluation!
*Megan’s name was changed for the sake of confidentiality, but her testimony is in her own words.
