Where do I begin with this AMAZING Attorney? I had the great of being referred to Teresa Reade back in March 2010 when I was in a horrific domestic situation. She has been a Godsend to not only myself but my children. She has a great sense of compassion and warmth about her and truly cares infatically about her clients. I feel fortunate til this day of calling her my attorney. She has advised me on a number of issues and represented me with such professionalism and knowledge of the law.

Won Alimony case with Complex Discovery Issues
I hired Attorney Reade to untangle my discovery/alimony case turned mess left by two male attorneys who had clearly taken advantage of me over a two year period. She has proven to be "the one" who actually worked in my best interests. Not only did she win my case, she won the legal fees. Unlike the others she understood the stress my case has caused me. Calmed me when I became panicked and impatient with the glacially slow family court pace. Attorney Reade took time to explain legal wording and issues that I did not understand, has a strong professional court presence (even when being pushed); however, the best trait of all is she was straightforward with me even when it would have benefited her to cloud over certain issues. She was honest. I cannot praise Attorney Reade and Reade and Reade Law firm and recommend her (and them) to my friends and acquaintances. My sole regret is that I did not find her years ago.

Divorce Attorney
Teresa has gone above and beyond for me through my divorce.. She is an acceptional lawyer and I have recommended her to several of my friends..

Empathetic advocate
We were referred to Teresa by another attorney we immediately found that she listens and understands what one is trying to accomplish and she finds the way to do it within the law. We had one successful outcome and are using her services again on another matter.

Highly recommended
Teresa has been an amazing help for me and my family. She is knowledgeable, quick to respond and actually cares about her clients. I recommend her to anyone looking for representation for divorce, child support and custody issues.
