    first off lets point out the obvious, someone will always be unhappy and bad review someone. Sheri Jo has been my attorney for two cases and she is wonderful, she answered all my questions and made my dream of a mom become a reality. so meet with her and form your own opinion before you judge her by the bad reviews

    I was referred to Shari Jo from a real estate attorney that I know and trust. As a result, I trusted her right from the beginning because of his strong recommendation. It's a painful and uncomfortable time when your marriage has dissolved, and you don't know your rights AND you're full of questions. Shari Jo is friendly, no-nonsense and very experienced. She and her team were very responsive. She doesn't make the Law, but she certainly navigates you through it so that you come out the other end as unscathed as possible. She wrote a brilliant legal separation agreement, and the process only took 51 days from the start to the agreement being filed. I'm glad and grateful that she handled my case. I highly recommend Shari Jo Reich!

    I'm having a hard time believing any of these good review are from real clients. How can someone so dishonest , so forgetful and so unorganized handle any case any different then mine was handled? If I would checked on here first I wouldn't have used her because there are to many bad reviews. Everyone do your homework and beware! She does not answer your emails, nor phone calls only in the very beginning. She def talks out of both sides of her mouth like someone else commented on here. She makes false promises, which later I found out she's should never promise anything. But it was a lesson learned the hard way for me. Besides the disappointment of her ability to get herself prepared for court, I think she got my case mixed up with another client. There were things so off in my case it was unbelievable. Huge mistakes! Those that cost me unnecessary money. They could have been corrected I found out later but could care less as long as she gets her money....she did not answer me nor my new lawyer when questioned about her mistakes to this day. You get totally ignored when she's in the wrong! Or beats around the bush .. If one person hesitate or thinks twice about using her you will be glad you did your homework. please beware and if you feel any bad vibe Trust you gut feeling.. God knows I wish I did. She should be band from being able to practice. She manipulated me and took advantage of my circumstances and never looked back. Although she has not paid for those mistakes . I had to come to the understanding that it is not up to me here on earth to worry or waste my time how she should have been punished because in the end I know that it's up to God... and one day she will meet our maker and have to answer to him.

    I could NEVER have made it through my divorce without Shari Jo. She was not intimidated by any of the circumstances that arose during my divorce. From the moment I met her, I knew she was the perfect choice. She ALWAYS got back to me whenever I had questions. She showed genuine concern, compassion, as well as knowledge and experience. She is was and is fantastic!!

    I wish I would've seen these reviews! All lip service and then drags your case out charging you thousands of dollars. I believe she takes on too many clients and doesn't concentrate on you but expects to be paid. My ex and his lawyer literally laughed all the way to the bank! I spent $50k and nearly 2 years this divorce has been going on. I had had it with her when she failed to relay info to me as well as the ex's attorney. She will never talk to you on the phone, never answer email questions, never keep you informed of results of lawyer meetings in court. But she will get her people to bill you promptly. The divorce is still going on and I had to retain another attorney!! Thanks for nothing Shari!!

    Shari Jo was wonderful. She returned every email promptly - even when I was rambling on about things that had no relevance in the divorce world. I think she was tough when she had to be and compassionate when it was needed. She may not hold your hand the way you'd like, but she's there for you when the chips are down. She remembered everything we had agreed to better than I did. I would strongly recommend her to anyone going through a separation or divorce.

    Did a great job considering what she had to deal with throughout a rather lengthly process. She went the extra mile after Judge ruled I had to pay ex-wife's Attorney fees. We won the Appeal which restored my faith in the Legal System.

    I retained Shari Jo to handle a post-divorce custody petition. My ex-husband sued to change custody because I was moving to a new town with my new husband. I consulted other attorneys before retaining Shari Jo, and even had to fire my previous counsel because he did not give me the clear answers to questions that I needed to move forward with my life and raise my children. Shari Jo did. From the first moment I consulted her she was up front with me about what I could expect, what would work, and what would not. She was confident, and everything that she said should happen in the case happened. She gave me different advice than some of the other attorneys I talked to, and in the end, her analysis was the correct one. I chose well. She is reputed as one of the best family law attorneys in Buffalo, and I would go as far as saying she is the best. The custody suit was the most emotionally difficult thing I have ever went through, much worse than my divorce. She did the only thing a lawyer can do in that situation: she had my back at every turn and won. The case resolved on even better terms than I had hoped or expected. Instead of losing time with my children, I received more time. She kept me informed at all times, was responsive to my inquiries, and fought for me and my children. She has my lasting gratitude.

    My husband and I turned to Sharijo in 2010.I was remarried and my new husband worked and lives in Cleveland OH.Sharijo promised to help get us out of western NY.We gave her 5k and went to the Supreme Court judge Donna Siewk. We went to trial and it didn't go well the judge actually making fun of her glasses. After a 6 months of waiting we lost our court case with the judge and I was told I could move but my kids had to stay in western Ny.We went to the appellate court another 45 later at the Appellate court Sharijo lost her temper and 5 judges made her sit down.Tge case was over my ex husband's lawyer laughed.Tge ruling has been devastating for my family.We are out 50k. We now have two places to pay for two bills if every kind.And my ex husband us no longer with his gf. I have 6 more years to go to be able to move or I have to give custody of my 3 kids to an ex that's a child abuser.We r living a nightmare.After speaking to other lawyers they said I'm screwed.They go on to say bad advice.Oh the best was getting an email to us telling us we lost.Sgari Jo wouldn't even speak to us we were devastated.Laura Emerson dud speak to my husband and felt awful for us.I live daily in a mess and pine for the year 2020.On this new years eve I have 5 more years to go. Run from Shari Jo she's cold hearted and only cares for the money. My poor Family it's awful.

  • PHENOMENALLY OUSTANDING ATTORNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Adam

    Shari Jo is my attorney and represented me throughout my child custody case. What you can expect from her is woman who will dilligently fight for her clients rights to the bitter end and beyond! She is an INCREDIBLEY cunning and very creative attorney who gets results and is very cost effective! She did an OUSTANDING job in my case with the exact results I wanted! If you're a single father living Erie County I can tell you first hand that the odds ARE NOT IN YOUR FAVOR. Shari Jo Reich is the counter to that! I highly recommend her! In fact if your a single father I would tell you straight out there simply is NO OTHER CHOICE!
    Shari looks at every aspect of your individual case from the very first day that you meet with her to formulate the best possible outcome for you. She doesn't pull ANY punches or sugar coat the facts. I personally will NEVER STEP FOOT in Family Court with out Shari Jo as my attorney! The time to find out how good your lawyer really is isn't when your standing in front of a judge.
