You want Marie in your corner!
I couldn’t have hired a better attorney to represent me in my divorce. I was completely confident in my choice the day I retained Marie and she never let me down. Marie is thorough, thoughtful, understanding and intuitive. Whenever I was in court with Marie, I always felt she was well respected by her colleagues and the courthouse professionals. She knows the system and the law and she guided me through a difficult process. She gave me a reality check when I needed it and was patient with my emotions. Marie worked hard and successfully negotiated a reasonable settlement on my behalf. I will forever be grateful to Marie for taking my case.

Client
I needed to find a lawyer for my divorce in August of 2017, I was very lucky to have found Marie Reidy. When I met with Marie for the first time, she was very helpful with answering my questions and my concerns. After discussing my case with Marie, I felt very comfortable talking to Marie and I hired her the same day. Marie was always there at all my court dates ready to stand beside me and fight for what I was entitled to. Marie knew I was nervous every time we went to court, but she always gave me a little pep talk reassuring me everything will work out. Throughout my divorce If I had any question,concerns anything I would call her office and Marie would get back to me the same day. I even called Marie a few times regarding another issue that had nothing to do with my divorce and she was right there giving me advice on what to do. Marie is a lawyer you want on your side, she's very dedicated to her clients. Marie was able to resolve my divorce and it will be finalized February 2019. I want to thank Marie for her hard work. I would highly recommend Marie Reidy if your looking to get divorced.

Child Custody
Marie is very straight to the point and knowledgeable of the law. Her level of responsiveness and action made what could have been a difficult process into a very easy one. She is empathetic and understanding. I believe that if I had not found her, I would not have had the positive outcome that I did. I highly recommend her to anyone going through a custody case. Her experience shows successful both inside and outside the courtroom.

Lawyer of Note
I recently was divorced after 46 years of marriage. I had the great Fortune of finding Marie through recommendations of family and friends. She was compassionate. Very generous with her time. Professional and knowledgeable. I believe without her help I would not have had the good outcome that I did. I highly recommend Marie to anyone who is going through this life crisis. A lawyer who has the the experience that Marie has is invaluable.

Conscientious and Professional
I had never had the need for an attorney before, until my recent divorce. I asked a few people that I know, who worked at the court house, for suggestions. They all recommended Marie Reidy without hesitation. I found her to be very pleasant and very professional. The thing I really like about Marie is how quickly she gets back to you by phone or e-mail if you have questions. I got the feeling that she really cared about my case. Marie is an excellent attorney and I would highly recommend her and I plan on using her again in the future. --Jerry F.

Great representaion
Attorney Reidy represented me in my divorce case a few years ago. Ms. Reidy was the ultimate professional. Being that this whole process was unsettling to me, and a bit daunting, she was very good in explaining the process and keeping me up to date with the information I needed to get through this difficult time. She made the process much more bearable and it all went surprisingly smooth. I HIGHLY recommend Attorney Reidy to anyone needing representation. You will not be disappointed.

Child Custody
I retained attorney Marie E. Reidy after speaking with two other attorneys and with other professionals in the field. My priority and sole concern was with the custody and welfare of my daughter. On the personal level Marie understood my concerns and made them hers. As an attorney Marie listens. That is not a skill that I take for granted and not one that every attorney shares equally. Marie is also empathetic. It is easy at times to see how clients could become case numbers. Not once during the entire legal process and my engagement with Marie did I feel that way. Years after the settlement Marie contacted me simply to ask how my daughter was doing. On the professional level I can comment on a few observations. First, I noticed that Marie was well liked and respected by fellow attorneys, including opposing counsel and court officers. This is a reflection on her character and demeanor. Secondly, Marie is detail oriented and organized. The importance of these skills cannot be over emphasized. These are skills that may not be fully appreciated until you see what things look like in their absence. Thirdly, Marie's communication skills both in the court room and with me personally were exceptional. As a worried dad my communications with Marie via phone, email and in person were frequent. I received a response either the same day or the following day. I commend her for this. For an divorce attorney, when children are involved, it is crucial that the attorney have a complete understanding of the role that a GAL (Guardian Ad Litem) may play in the case. Marie exhibited extensive knowledge and experience when it involved the role of the GAL in our case. This was one of many factors that contributed to the positive outcome of my case and ultimately the well being of my daughter. I think that you need three things to be an effective attorney for a client. Foremost you need an understanding of the law. Secondly you need a sharp intellect. And third it is imperative that you are able to articulate your knowledge of the law and what is in the best interest of your client when you are in the court room facing opposing counsel and pleading your case before the judge. Marie has exhibited all three of these skills, along with other positive personal traits. These combined are what make Marie an excellent attorney, and one that I would use again. The fee structure for Marie's service was clear and laid out in detail in advance of signing a retainer. The billing was fair and honest and my position was respected. For the reasons I have stated above I would wholeheartedly and without reservation give my recommendation to anyone who is considering retaining Marie Reidy as their attorney.

Caring and Compassionate Attorney
I hired Marie to represent me in my divorce and would recommend her wholeheartedly. She was very professional, yet down-to-earth, and very easy to talk to, and she made sure that she explained everything in layman's terms. She spoke to me and explained things on my level of understanding. She was always quick to respond when I was being bullied by the ex. and quick to explain how the law was there to protect. She came across much more professional than my ex's attorney and seemed much more knowledgeable even though he has been practicing for many years. She was very determined to do her best for me and she did! Thanks Marie!

THE BEST!
She helped me twice! Once to get divorced and once to ensure my ex-wife continues to get supervised visits due to her mental health issues. My two kids and I are in such a good spot with this stability. She helped me navigate such a tricky situation with such class, dignity, and helped me get attorney's fees covered from the other side (my ex-wife).

Divorce Attorney - Highly recommended
Marie was absolutely amazing handling my case. She was calm and professional which helped me be calm too. She made sure that my children and I were taken care of and not taken advantage of. Divorce is always a difficult decision and awful time in your life. Marie and her associate made dealing with my divorce bearable. She is tenacious, compassionate and fair. I would highly recommend her for anyone having to go through a difficult divorce.

made the best choice with Marie
After meeting and getting advice from 6 other divorce lawyers, it was clear after a few minutes that Marie was the one for me. Her calming demeanor was just what I needed so I could make solid decisions that were best for me and kids in the long run, not just now. It was straightforward talk and expectations laid out, no false hopes. Very satisfied and would suggest searches for a divorce lawyer stop here.

Excellent, Trustworthy, and Informed
I went through a very messy divorce and custody battle and was very emotional through it. Ms. Reidy kept me level, sorted through the emotions and got to the facts. She was always there and responded to questions immediately. She continues to be extremely helpful years after my divorce was finalized and is still very responsive. She is a rare find and very personable. She listens to your needs and works together with you for the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend her.
