Mr. Reda represented my son in criminal proceeding in a felony assault case. Mr. Reda was very professional. He explained everything to us as clients, and with a great outcome for my son! I would truly recommend him as a criminal defense attorney.
I also used him in my foreclosure proceedings. Mr. Reda help me understand the foreclosure process , worked with the bank in all the hearing,s and helped me stay in my house as well. Mr. Reda was very professional , and competent in every hearing, as well as being prepared for every court appearance. He is kind , and truly cares about his client's outcome. I would truly recommend him as a criminal attorney, as well as a great litigation attorney. We had great outcomes because of Mr. Reda!

Hired for defense.
Reda had No clue what the result would be. None. Found out in front of the judge. Reda was shocked at the sentence. He did Zero excepting show up with me for thousands of dollars.
Forced to get another attorney after locked up thanks to Reda.
WIth a Good attorney and a few thousand dollars later the felony was reduced, essentially brought down to a violation. Sentence of six months was reduced to 40 days.
I will not say that Reda is incompetent but will say that he is in No Way an attorney I would ever again consider.
Additionally, I think he does not keep good records. I hired him and paid him with using a written contract. He started badgering me for money when he was paid in full. After he questioned me I supplied him with a copy of contract as well as Cash receipt. He shut his mouth promptly.
Reda in my opinion is attorney who bought his license. He was raised in Farmingdale.
He is Extremely weak where it counts and that to me is first and foremost. In my opinion he does not know what is going on around him when confronted and secondarily how to to negotiate. He Fails allover as a defense lawyer, I could easily do the same or better. More than once I wanted to ridicule him for poor performance but kept my mouth shut. No more as I am getting older and people should know.
I think he is a loser as a criminal lawyer.
He advertises all types of legal services.
Essentially a poor example of an attorney who in my opinion should not represent persons.
Liberty as well as Property should never be trusted to Douglas Reda.
Additionally what bothers me is that I saw one of his ads to do almost anything in the "PENNYSAVER" (that after hiring and paying him).
Maybe Reda should get a job moving papers around with a supervisor looking over him? I don't know but I would NEVER trust Reda to write a will or close on real estate as I do believe he is essentially incompetent.
Best advice, if you get a ticket, pay it before attempting to defend yourself with Reda and better yet, get a good lawyer that will actually work the case
Don't forget, Doug Reda advertised in the 'Pennysaver' with a slew of legal services in the cheap lines and not the 1/16 of a page. His ad was next to the ones that will cut your grass or pump your cesspool for next to nothing.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
