  1. DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY - WORST ATTORNEY EVER!!!

    • I do not recommend William Reilly.

    This is an actual client writing. I had an easily winnable case but he gave me false information that lead to a conviction. I will even give a breakdown: I was in a friend's car who had drugs in it. No drugs were found on or around me, only in the car (obviously, my friend's drugs). Reilly advised me to take what's called a stipulated trial where Reilly said the judge is supposed to read the police report and base his judgement off of that. The judge DID NOT read the police report (in fact, he brought a separate defendant with a completely different case for judgement) and I was found guilty. So I appealed the case and when it came time for actual trial, he tricked me into withdrawing the appeal because "enough time had passed without me getting in trouble, I should have gotten a default judgement that I would get acquitted". However, this did not happen and now I have a drug charge on my record that I should not have. He wanted to do the least amount of work possible and basically stole $2000 from me. DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY FOR ANY CASE.

    • I do not recommend William Reilly.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was convicted, unjustly, of a Misdemeanor 1 in the State of PA. Reiily did not know the laws or the consequences of the conviction. He told me that I would be able to have my gun rights reinstated at the end of my probation. It was all a lie!
    Do not use this shyster. he will not go the extra mile to have you exonerated and do not trust him to know the laws.

  3. Only interested in you taking a plea bargain

    • I do not recommend William Reilly.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Only knowing of the accused charge, he was only set on me taking a plea deal without even asking for the details of the arrest which was unlawful. Did not keep me informed of a bench warrent for my arrest. Will do less work as possible.
