    Attorney Reidy shows exceptional knowledge of the law, is articulate and strong in presenting her client's case. She is detail oriented, organized and empathetic. She is well respected by other attorneys including opposing counsel. Attorney Reidy responded the same day or the next to my phone and email inquiries. She was attentive to my concerns and argued our case vigorously. I highly recommend attorney Reidy to any one involved in a child custody case.

    Thank you for choosing me as your divorce lawyer! When hiring a lawyer, you have to feel comfortable as the process can be rather lengthy. I think a lot of people talk to their friends and families and expect a certain result, but every case is different

    I went through a very messy divorce and custody battle and was very emotional through it. Ms. Reidy kept me level, sorted through the emotions and got to the facts. She was always there and responded to questions immediately. She continues to be extremely helpful years after my divorce was finalized and is still very responsive. She is a rare find and very personable. She listens to your needs and works together with you for the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend her.

    Divorce is one of the most difficult things anyone can go through! That's why you need a lawyer that can remain calm while you are dealing with the emotions, which can be a full time job. I am always there for my clients, even years later!

    I do not think I could have chosen a better lawyer to represent me in my divorce. Marie was attentive to detail, in constant communication and made the process much more tolerable. She was professional with opposing council and my ex-wife. I highly recommend Marie and know you will be as pleased as I was!

    Thank you! Kind words, indeed! As lawyers, we ourselves are often beaten down by the system, other lawyers and even our own clients at times. It is heart warming to hear that my clients think so well of me and that my hard work is appreciated! :)

    Ms. Reidy is not only a true professional in every sense of the word. She genuinely cares about you, not just your case. Marie could be relied upon to make herself available to answer any questions or concerns. he was very prompt with responses and in keeping me up to date. She spoke honestly and provided insight to help me understand both sides of the case.
    She provided sound and more than fair advise. In the end, I won my judgment and no longer was required to pay support.

    Attorney Reidy is a wonderful lawyer. As a father of 2 she helped me gain custody of both children, the marital home and weekly support. The end result is that both my kids are thriving and this would not have happened with a different result in court. Since the outcome, I have called her for advice and council and she always makes time for me even though she worked endless hours for her other clients. I highly recommend this attorney for anyone going through the divorce/custody process.

    Thank you! I do see more and more fathers earning custody. I have had many male clients come to me after being told they can't win simply because they are men. Simply untrue in today's day and age!

    Hiring Marie Reidy was the best decision I have ever made. {para}She explained everything to me before each court appearance, so I was never caught off guard and knew what to expect. I could tell she cared about my case, and her calm demeanor put me at ease in court. I got custody of my sons, and I have her to thank for that.{para}If you are going through what I just finished going through and are looking for a lawyer to get you through your divorce, I recommend you call her.
