What Our Clients Say

Excellent law firm that handled my extremely difficult custody issues including a modification to my entire divorce agreement and numerous issues during the court process. They treated me with dignity and respect when I was going through such a hard time. I also came out on top as they are a firm that was very focused on the best interest of my child at all times. Highly recommend them!!!

What Our Clients Say

Extremely pleased with the Reade Law Firm!! I was looking for a lawyer the was concerned with justice and not just wanting to settle the case according to some preconceived idea about the Judge. When we couldn’t settle my case out of court the Judge sent us to mediation. The Court appointed Mediation lawyer kept telling me how the Judge was going to rule and I should make another offer. I was going to look bad to the Judge if I didn’t make a better offer. Attorney Reade listened to my concerns and didn’t pressure me to make another offer. When we went to trail, the cross examination of my ex-wife was excellent. I was very, very happy with the outcome. The judgment was LESS than the offer they rejected. Don’t waste time trying to find another lawyer.

What Our Clients Say

After battling a year long divorce and having gone to numerous lawyers I came across Ms. Reade from a referral from the bar association. My natural doubts were casted aside once I met Ms. Reade and felt almost instantly comfortable explaining my case and worries related. Looking for a lawyer can be hard, especially when you are looking for someone to believe you and not just represent you. I felt that Ms. Reade believed in me and furthermore, assisted me in many ways. The costs for their services were far more than reasonable, and personally will use them for any domestic case I may find myself in the future.
