S.J. is an amazing attorney and she is worth every single penny. My fiance has already written a review but he's not me. S.J. fought for me. I never lied to her, she is upfront and honest about everything. She worked after hours on my case and got back to me even when she was on her family vacations. There simply are not words that could express how I feel or the thanks that I have for S.J. and her associates who worked on my case. I had no hope in the family court system, but S.J. kept my faith and hope. People who hire attorneys fail to realize that every person in this world will at some point receive a bad review, especially when things don't go there way. People fail to realize that if you want an amazing attorney, one who will fight tooth and nail for you, be brutally honest about everything whether or not it hurts your feelings, and so much more, you have to be willing to pay. The cost of an attorney doesn't always say how good or bad you will be represented, but from personal experience it matters some what. I have referred a few people to S.J. and her office. I will continue to do so anytime someone asks me if I know a good attorney. I HONESTLY COULD NEVER REPAY S.J. FOR BRINGING MY FAMILY BACK TOGETHER AND BRINGING THE TRUTH TO THE SURFACE. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Shari Jo Reich!!!

Sheri jo Reich is an outstanding professional, we recently went through a very disgusting vile custody battle that got entirely way out of control, Sheri jo told us all along no matter what to stick to our guns and always tell the truth, I will admit never going thru a custody battle I had no clue what to expect and at times the other sides council would make these off the wall allegations that were so far fetched she may have well said I'm an alien. If your looking for a lawyer that will lie cheat and play dirty shes not for you. She is very honest and upstanding her character is of the highest standard. And with our not so impressive legal system it was very hard at times because you want someone to stand up and scream are you kidding me!!! But Sheri jo is like a master at chess she chooses her moves wisely and when the time is right like a heat seeking missile she hits her target, she often says I've been doing this for 27 yrs I know what I'm doing trust me. Well we did and I cannot ever ever ever thank her enough even though its hard to trust that something that you cannot control and is such a twisted system will ever turn out as it should she fights for it, and for the truth. She is the one that will fight for you day and night. Sheri jo is a godsend, and when your in trial with her it's just like watching one of those tv show lawyers, you think to yourself wow I'm glad she is my lawyer and I'm not on the other side of that. The moral of my story is if your reading this hire her you will not be disapointed. From the bottom of my heart words could never ever ever describe the debt of gratitude I owe you Sheri jo you've brought my family back together and got us through the worste possible nightmare that one could not ever even imagine. She's not just your average lawyer by any means a cut way above the rest!

I hired Shari Jo back in 2010 when I filed for divorce. Looking back, she was right about how the case would go, literally, she was 100% right. I parted ways with her over 3 years ago and I realize know I made a HUGE mistake.
I could have saved tens of thousands of dollars had I taken her advice. Looking back I realize I was pain as a client. I let emotions get the best of me and complained to her as if she was my therapist. I wish I didn't do that to her, I neglected to see I was not her ONLY client and honestly I wouldn't have put up with me if I was her. She tolerated me and let me know when she had enough of my complaints.
To be honest, she was always prepared and responsive. She was in the process of making partner and had a heavy case load but she never neglected my case. Her fees were far more reasonable than the 2 lawyers I hired after her and she was the only one who showed me how she spent my money. She sent monthly statements to me, though my ex was paying me fees.
The lawyers after, which I have paid for myself, never sent me a statement, even though I requested in writing several times to see how my money was being spent. That made me uncomfortable and I felt I was being taken advantage of in a way. I don't know if most lawyers provide statements or not, but I really appreciated that she did.
S.J. was brutally honest to the point it was upsetting at times- but she was right. I wish I had listened, appreciated, and stayed with S.J. not only would I have spent less $, my kids would not have been through as much as they have.
Hindsight is 20 20 so to those who complain about her- I hope you take a step back and check your emotions before you make unkind, unfair, and possibly inaccurate accusations about S.J. Reich.
I've never posted a review of anyone before but I felt compelled to post this review about S.J. She was the best of 3 and I wish I would have taken her advice. If you hire S.J. i suggest you listen, even if it isn't what you want to hear.

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.
