    • I recommend Paul Reni.
    • I hired Paul 1-3 years ago.
    • Paul handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Paul Reni was actually recommended to me by another lawyer who had been up against him in another case. He was impressed by Mr. Reni and felt he could do a good job representing me through my divorce. It is not an easy thing nor a quick process, but I felt Paul has found a great combination of professionalism and empathy. He takes his job to heart, and I consider him a guardian angel.

    • I recommend Paul Reni.
    • I hired Paul 1-3 years ago.
    • Paul handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I heard about Paul through a friend and called him to help me go to bat for getting more than the paltry status quo custody agreement.He helped me and worked very closely on my behalf in order to make sure I got fair time with my son. He was very helpful, friendly and pulled no punches regarding legal advice. If you have a situation requiring time in family court and want someone that will fight as hard as possible to help you, Paul Reni fits the role perfectly.

    • I recommend Paul Reni.
    • I hired Paul more than 3 years ago.
    • Paul handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mine was a complex divorce after many years of marriage. Mr. Reni’s compassionate, professional, and calm manner was always reassuring and his sense of humor appreciated. He kept me informed and involved in every step of the process, answered any and all questions promptly through phone or e-mail and used mediation as an effective tool in the end. Paul and Laura, his paralegal, always made me feel like I was their favorite client. I found his integrity unquestionable, his knowledge thorough, and his years of experience a real asset. I highly recommend him as someone who will listen to your concerns and fight for your interests.

    I would highly recommend Paul for any one seeking legal assistance. If it's an area in which he lacks expertise, he'll be the first to tell you. In my case, he helped me navigate a financially difficult separation and divorce over a 2 year period. He was the first to tell me if my logic was unsound, and offer alternative courses of action as we sought to finalize the divorce. He is also fun to work with and that's always helpful in difficult situations. Paul is straightforward, trust worthy, very responsive and kept me informed every step of the way. You can't do better!

    Paul Reni helped me navigate through a very difficult divorce from a diagnosed Borderline Personality. He fought to make sure legal precautions were taken to protect me and my young children. As a result of his due diligence, I ended up with a permanent restraining order, and a fair settlement.

    Since the divorce, he continues to counsel me when difficult situations arise with visitation and general communication with my children’s father. I really believe as a result of his knowledge of high conflict personalities, we have avoided more court time.

    I highly recommend Paul to anyone going through difficult divorces like mine. Paul is articulate, honest about expected outcomes, and available via many venues of communication, phone, email, text. I trust Paul, and will continue to retain him for many years.

    • Paul handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Paul Reni helped me resolve a sadly acrimonious divorce case. His expertise and professionalism allowed me to patiently weather the process, which, in my opinion was unnecessarily lengthy.

    Paul kept my spirits up with his intelligent and light-hearted communication style. He was able to understand and honestly articulate my side of the story and my feelings without being offensive. In fact, his diplomacy enabled him to get along with cantankerous opposing counsel. Paul is straightforward, upfront about what he can and cannot do, and how much it will cost. He has a very good memory for details and guided me to use good judgment.

    In spite of best efforts, our attempt at the mediation process failed, yet ultimately, Paul was able to keep the case from going to court. Working with Paul made a tremendous, positive difference in the train-wreck of my divorce; because of him, I not only survived, but I am happy and thriving today.

    • I recommend Paul Reni.
    • I hired Paul more than 3 years ago.
    • Paul handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    When we first went to Paul Reni for a divorce/child support/custody/moving to another state case, he told us it was a very difficult task arguing each point of our case, let alone all 8 of them identified. His ability to understand the situation, identify the necesary legal steps and when to take each action led us to an eventual success across the board.

    No child action case is easy for any of the participants, but Paul Reni and legal assistant Laura Sulik took the daily care and consideration that made it a bearable task as well as a win for our child.

    I will add, additionally Paul made it clear to us he works for the child's best interest. We completely beleive that and our son's current well being and happiness are proof of it.
