Being new to this side of the legal world, it was refreshing to find a law firm who works so well together for their clients. Shifting from one lawyer to another was seamless and both Matt and Brittany were awesome to work with. Brittany brought... both the experience as a skilled family lawyer and a mother to the table that helped to put a new mom at ease. Her decisive manner and quick response time made her a delight to work with both in court and during preparation. She genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend her and the team.read more

I don't think I could ever thank Brittany Hall enough for all that she did for my family.Working timelessly over and over. She is very quick with response and has helped us through a hard time. Not once did she ever think about even giving up. She... knew what was best for my situation and how to handle it promptly and professionally. If you are looking for a family attorney, I highly suggest you hire her.Thanks again for everythingread more

I would definitely give Cape Fear Family Law 10 stars if I could. I hired Roy Jacobs as my attorney in my custody case and could not be more pleased with his work. He always kept in communication with me and returned my calls and consulted with me... before he did anything. He was also mindful of how he spent the money in my trust account so I could accomplish the most with my funds. Would I hire him again? Absolutely!! (Although, I hope I won't have to for a while) Roy fought for my family as if we were his family. His paralegal could not have been more helpful and nice to me. If you need an attorney, please consider Roy Jacobs at Cape Fear Family Law. You WILL NOT be disappointed! There never a moment when I felt nervous about their ability or advice and I always felt assured that they both had my best interest in mind. Honestly, I could not be more pleased!read more

I would highly recommend her services to anyone. I plan to use her for any future needs.read more

Four years ago, I was looking for a strong family law attorney and Cape Fear Family Law came highly recommended to me. I set up a consultation and have never looked back or regretted my decision over the years. Jessica and Ashly have been absolutely... amazing and have supported me every step of the way. Over the last four years, they have given me peace of mind throughout the difficult process that comes with a high conflict custody case. They both are always beyond willing to help and their communication has been above and beyond. If you’re looking for an attorney that isn’t going to penny pinch you, but at the same time not cut corners, a team that’ll work extremely hard, listen to all your concerns, be straight up and honest with you, and fight hard, I highly recommend Jessica and Ashly.read more

I've known 3 at Cape Fear for almost 5 years. In a situation that I'd never dealt with before and hope never to again, Jessica and Melodi were our guiding lights. I have sent others to them and will always. They are unsurpassed in Wilmington and... surrounding areas. Their guidance, filled with knowledge and compassion, made it all possible. Forever grateful.read more

We each had wills that were functional but were last updated in 1992. Roy was thorough and asked the right questions to ensure we had our Living Will as well as our formal will up to date. His personaliy really showed well with his enthusiasm.

Two years ago our daughter decided that being a mommy was not #1 for her. She hàd the most amazing 2 year old little boy. There are not enough words to say how my husband and I feel about this little angel! After realizing that things were not... changing , I had to jump in and protect my grandbaby. Waneta Ellis was referred to me from. Social services. I made an appt with her, and to be honest I was scared of losing my Jackson, scared of the money side of it. Waneta has been the very best. It was so hard on my heart to take my own child to court. Waneta respected me and my daughter enough not to rip my daughter apart, but knew just what to say and when to stop and that I so appreciate !! Waneta and I have stayed in contact and Yesterday our adoption was final. Waneta cried right along with me! Waneta Ellis when covid is over, dinner is on us! Anywhere you want to go! God bless you, not only as my lawyer but as a friend! We love you guys !!! Thank you for helping us keep our Jackson safe! Thank you for bringing him home where he belonged ! Thank you for just being you!read more

Overall a good experience. The office staff was fantastic. I was given all the information and help that was “under contract”. My only complaint is I would have to contact the lawyer, or the office 2 to 3 times To get a call back from him. And after... they fulfilled the contract I had more questions. Matt gave me a call back and said he would be glad to help with any questions I had going forth even though they were not representing me, and he said he would send me an email with more information for me. I never got the email. The next week I had more questions due to changes in my case from the courthouse adapting to Covid 19 regulations. I reached out to Matt with more questions regarding the changes, as well as offered to pay the office for his services as far as answering my extra questions, but he never responded.So overall it was a good experience, however once they have “fulfilled” the original contract there is slim to no chance of getting help again with questions regarding the case even when offering to pay.read more

I am delighted to write this review regarding my experience with Cape Fear Family Law, specifically with Matthew Geiger. I was going through a Marital Separation last year and making a purchase of a Home on my own. My situation was a bit different... in that my Spouse And I were Not “unfriendly” or trying to be uncooperative with each other in any way. However, it still required legal stipulations as to the home purchase. Matthew handled every detail in a professional, and timely manner for me, and I actually had a smooth and successful outcome, with both the selling of my Marital Residence as well as the Purchase Of my new Home. I would gladly recommend Cape Fear Family Law To Anyone in need of an affordable and experienced Legal Representation in the time of Need! JDread more

I have worked with Janet and Amy over the last couple years for an ongoing issue with my grandson. When the opportunity presented itself this past September, I had to reach out to them once again. Matthew was brought into the mix. I can honestly... say that all 3 have given me a sense of comfort in their timeliness of responding, whether during business hours or after. I loved the concept of a flat rate so that I didn't feel that every time I had a question, it would cost me another dime. These folks helped us gain a life for my grandson that he so deserves and I am forever grateful to each and every one of them.read more

I don’t usually leave Google reviews, but after such a wonderful experience, I now feel compelled. Legal issues can be intimidating and complicated, but Brittany took her time and helped me through this process with compassion and patience. My... emails were also responded to promptly, phone calls taken or returned same day, and all court filings handled professionally and without delay. I was made to feel comfortable throughout the whole process, and knew that I was in good hands. Thank you to Brittany and Amy for good communication, compassion, and thorough organization. I highly recommend Cape Fear Family Law.read more

Areas Of Practice

Child custody and visitation are two of the most important issues that stem from a relationship failing, but they are not the only issues.  Often with relationship dissolution the financial tensions are extreme.  Managing retirement division through equitable distribution and cash flow between two homes through alimony is fraught with conflict.  We take care to guide clients through the legal landscape, out of court negotiations, and in court processes that sometimes are needed when parties cannot agree.
