  • James B Re

    I have practiced law with Steve Reilly for many years, and he is one of the most intelligent, conscientious, hard-working, and knowledgeable lawyers I have met in more than 30 years of practice. He is also a man of impeccable integrity and generosity. I endorse him with the greatest of pleasure.
