Attentive and Available
Maureen was my divorce lawyer who I consulted after we had seen a mediator, and she was completely on board with continuing the goals of our mediation and not wanting to prolong the process or create any new issues for us. We consequently had an amicable divorce and have remained on extremely friendly terms, which I attribute to how well Maureen handled everything preparing for court and taking care of the little things that have popped up after our hearing and since the divorce was final. She has been really on top of everything!

Excellent Counsel
I worked with Maureen over several years on a variety of cases ranging from premises liability to toxic torts; she functioned as my agency's outside counsel for litigated general liability claims. She has always consistently delivered effective representation and solid legal advice.

In a sea of darkness, Ms Reilly is a ship of light.
I was confused, angry, and hurt when I needed to find a lawyer for the first time. It was a personal matter that was finding it's way to court. Ms. Reilly was able to explain clearly and knowledgeably the law and suggest possible negotiations that might resolve the problem before getting in front of a judge. With skill, strategy, and understanding of both the law and human behavior we were able to settle the matter. It was her humanity and compassion for both sides that brought about resolution where there easily could have been a long and bitter struggle. What more could I ask for?
