Lawyer who cares!
If you need a Workman’s Comp lawyer don’t look any further. Your answer is Reis Law. I worked with David Rubin, a lawyer with Reis Law, as well as Laura Reis her self. They fought tooth and nail for my treatment, after a serious work injury, and fought for my settlement as well. My case was complex and they became like a family. They put up with my neurosis, and besides just doing an amazing job on my case, it was obvious that they took the case personally and provided excellent service. I am so so lucky and grateful to David and Laura! From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!

Amazing Law Team
I had a workman’s compensation claim; because, the company I worked for did not follow the safty guidlines for employees. As result, I permanently injured my knee. Reis Law Firm took my case. Laura’s team was very attentive. They followed up with answers to all my questions and concerns. We settled out of court with a very comfortable amount for my injury. Although I rather have my old knee back, I have come to a conclusion that life could be worse off. The settlement money is going toward my retirement as a replacement for my pension. I was blessed to be referred to Reis Law Firm. They are amazing!

Real people Attorneys
Her and her office were respectful, attentive, and easy to work with. I had no idea of the rights I had in my situation. They provided information that the worker's comp insurance company seemed reluctant to provide. I got updates once a week, sometimes late in the evening when most would have already stoped working. I knew that updating me was going to take place after work on my case had taken place. David R. a very hard worker of Ms. Reis went far and beyond what I expected, and I never felt left out of the loop. Through time and patients my case was settled even through the Covid 19 issues. With their help my family can start putting our lives back together again.

Medical & Legal Spanish Interpreter
Been a Medical & Legal Interpreter in Atlanta area for nearly 15 years. In that time I've had the opportunity to meet with a few attorneys through the course of my work. Attorney Laura Reis, in my opinion, is one of the best WC attorneys in Atlanta. She has always granted a free consult to a client I sent her way, has treated those clients respectfully and has acquired a positive outcome for them. Totally endorse Laura Reis if you want a caring and tenacious attorney fighting on your behalf.

Review for services performed
My name is Mike. I came to hire Ms. Reis because I suffered an on-the-job injury which required surgery. After I came back to work another employee was trying to get me to perform activities for which I was not medically cleared. I contacted, and subsequently retained Ms. Reis nominally to keep the company off my back for a month until I took a new job. Ms. Reis went far and beyond what I expected. Within one week she secured a $60K settlement for me, possibly the best surprise I've ever had! I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Reis if you need legal services. Everyone in her office was very helpful and communicative, I never had a single problem getting someone to answer my questions and they promptly returned phone calls and emaii. If I ever need legal services again, my first call will be to Laura Reis and ReisLaw!

Timing
I went to Laura Reis when my worker's comp case was almost over and she took my case. I was surprised that I got any settlement. I am pleased to have income for the next 4 years. Her staff was friendly and helped to keep me informed. This law firm is upfront and I am proud to say that I was expecting to pay thousands in fees but in my case, it was less that $80.00

The best lawyer I feel I could have gotten!
Laura Reis was everything I could have asked for in a lawyer. Her and her office were respectful, attentive, and a complete all around pleasure to work with. They got my case complete and settled very quickly, and the settlement, considering my case, was huge. I never imagined I would get a settlement let alone that much. I am confident that if you want the best possible deal and a lawyer who will fight for you and have your best interest then I sincerely recommend Laura Reis. I had a lawyer before her that was just horrible and I couldn't be more happy that I changed to Laura Reis. I honestly don't believe that it could have gone any better. Thank you Laura Reis to you and your office at Reis law!

Satisfied Customer
I was employeed with a wireless company. Upon leaving a little earlier for a Dr. appointment I was getting ready to exit the building. There was a huge roll of plastic that was placed on the floor at the door to keep the door open by a moving company that were making deliveries to the company. I attempted to cross over the roll and my foot got caught on the plastic which threw me to the ground. I laid there for a few minutes. I was stunned because it happened so quickly there was no time to react. There were witnesses and the security person had seen the incident which she had watched on video. I made a report with the security officer along with seeing a doctor. I was given Mrs. Reis name from a friend of a friend that previously used her service. I would like to add this comment on Mrs. Reis behalf. She was pleasant, knowledgeable and very professional. She was straight to the point after having a sympathetic ear and hearing my distress on what had happened on August 29th 2013. I felt so much at ease once Mrs. Reis assured me everything would be ok. After my 1st visit to her firm and meeting her staff. I knew the professionalism was there. I am very pleased and a very satisifiied customer with Reis Law. I WILL recommend her firm to others. Thank you to Mrs. Laura Reis.

Recommendation for Laura Reis
Laura Reis was a referral from another attorney, which says a lot when you are referred by your peers. She is very personable, knowledgeable and treated me and handled my case with the utmost level of professionalism. It was a pleasure working with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation with their Worker’s Comp case.

Not Happy!
Lack of communication! I had to call to get updates on my case I thought they had forgot about me and the case! Not Happy!
Posted by Diego | April 15, 2015
terrible experience
Racial, lack of communication, she took my money and still getting medical bills, now she's not responding my emails or calls. She got me only 1200 dls after 4 months , unreal, i lost time and money because of her. So many good comments but my experience was horrible. She never kept me informed , i had to bug them to get an update, even treated me as ignorant and i stop there bc i don't feel like pulling race card. Wouldn't recommend her at all. Stay away please!!!
