MY GO TO LAWYER
I WAS FIRST RELUNTANT IN HIRING TANIYA REAVES BECAUSE OF HER BEING NEW TO THE PROFESSION. BUT HER DRIVE AND HER KNOWLEDGE REALLY JUST PUT ME IN SUCH A COMFORT ZONE ON HOW SHE APPROACHED MY CASE THAT A 30 YEAR LAWYER COULD NOT HANDLE IN A 4.5 MONTH PERIOD THAT WASNT GOING ANYWHERE. I CHOSE TO TERMINATED THE OLD AND BROUGHT ON THE NEW. IN 1 MONTH SHE DID ONE AMAZING JOB. BUT WHAT I CAME TO FIND OUT, MS. REAVES HAS BEEN IN THE LEGAL AREA FOR AWHILE, AND IT SHOWED WHEN I WAS WITH HER ONE ON ONE HER KNOWLEDGE WAS AMAZING, AND IN THE COURT ROOM SHE WAS WORKING THE LAWYER ATTITUDE LIKE SHE'S BEEN DOING IT FOR EVER. THAT HAD ME SAY AMEN AT THE END OF COURT. TANIYA REAVES IS NOW MY GO TO LAWYER AND I WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE. IM ONE OF THOSE FOLKS THAT ARE HARD TO PLEASE AND I WAS SO PLEASED AND HAPPY. SHE CARES FOR REAL.

Knowledgeable, Hardworking and Responsive Attorney
Taniya is very knowledgeable, and has an admirably clear and sound appreciation of the Law. She is very industrious in executing her duties to her clients. She’ll go the extra mile to leave her clients satisfied, and communicates well and expeditiously.

For the client
Taniya took on my child custody and support case and really stepped in and explores every avenue possible to get what I want out of this situation. From day one she has been on my side, there for me and really took time to discuss every question I had and put forth everything she has toward my case. I couldn't have asked a better attorney and she is by far the best I have ever worked with. The way she presents herself professionally is by far the best a client could ask for.
