Outstanding attorney for a divorce
Pat and his staff were professional, caring, thorough and calming while navigating my divorce. He helped me see the business side of a divorce and how to put everything into perspective. His patience and professionalism allowed me to come through my divorce with dignity and the feeling I was well represented. Joyce and Valerie were always there for my questions and concerns; their support and understanding were invaluable. Pat's fees were more than reasonable and clearly explained to me at the beginning; no big surprises. Hire him! You won't regret it.

highly responsive and effective
Pat handled my divorce in a very professional manner that could have been far more difficult. He kept things in perspective for me and helped me avoid confrontations. He and his legal assistant Joyce were available as needed and quickly responded to my questions. He never prolonged meetings and emails in order to bill me more. He was particularly helpful during the long day of mediation and helped us reach an agreement. I highly recommend him.

Absolutely the BEST
Pat was suggested to me by another attorney, and I am so grateful. He is not only compassionate and understanding but is diligent in his work ethic. He was able to guide me through a very difficult time in my life and made the process easier for me to navigate. I would highly recommend Pat without hesitation.

Thankful
Mr Reilly and Joyce helped me so much with a Trust Lawsuit. I'm so thankful for both of them. They guided me through this matter. Definitely would recommend Mr. Reilly.

Excellent Attorney!
Pat is a great attorney. He is knowledgeable about the area of law that he practices and treats his clients with respect. When an estate case arose, my family had Pat represent us. I can honestly say that his performance was stellar all the way around.

Pat Reilly is the best
I found myself in civil litigation and hired Pat as my defense counsel. He took the time to understand a complicated family trust situation and quickly grasped the issues. He handled the litigation with professionalism, drawing upon his clearly deep understanding of the law. Beyond his talents and abilities as a litigator, Pat was always responsive to my phone calls and emails, answering all my questions with patience and clarity. His entire staff provided excellent service. He was efficiently successful in getting the case against me dropped.. I cannot speak highly enough of Pat Reilly. He deserves ten stars out of five.

Well Done
Pat inherited my case after a failed mediation. There were 5 principals involved and between attorneys, CPA's, Agents, etc. there were no less than a dozen separate offices in regular contact for a few years. Professional throughout, kind, capable, knowledgeable, but most important fair. When things went sideways a bit he was hard edged and tough while still remaining calm and professional. His office staff and co-workers are are every bit as kind and committed to clients as he. I've since asked him to help with another current issue. I certainly suggest him.

The best!
Mr. Reilly is an extremely knowledgeable and well-versed attorney, who is very confident in his work. He not only gave us excellent advice on a professional level, but he demonstrated great attention to our personal thoughts/concerns along the way. Mr. Reilly was always available, quick to respond, and enjoyable to communicate with. His advice regarding our situation was both on point, and realistic. I would highly recommend Mr. Reilly if you are looking to achieve the most favorable result possible!

Estate issues
Pat handled my case very professionally and with actual empathy. It involved family disputes and other problems, and I can't say enough about the level of his support throughout. His assistant Valerie was also most helpful, professional, and personable. Pat brought the case to a successful end and I highly recommend that he be your attorney as well.

I am very grateful.
Pat, worked with me on 2 cases. The 1st case was a dispute with my family trust, that took 6 long and hard years to settle. Pat won the case for me. The trustee was very difficult to work with and Pat stayed with me until the end. I am very appreciative for all of the effort and hard work he and his staff gave me. The second case was a wrongful death claim. Again Pat won the case for me. He and his staff were always available for all phone calls and very professional. I would like to thank Pat and his staff for all of the hard work towards my cases.

Mr. Reilly is vastly experienced attorney, a patient listener and meticulous in his filings. I had complete confidence in him and, as a result, my divorce was not a stressful nor lengthy process. I have recommended him to friends.

Excellent Attorney
Pat represented my family in a trust dispute case. He was very responsive, informative and professional throughout the entire process. He kept us well informed of the progress of our case throughout the process and made himself available to answer our questions, discuss our concerns, provide guidance, etc. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for legal representation.

Pat did an amazing job working for myself and my Family. He followed through when everything and always kept me updated on my case. We searched and searched for a lawyer for weeks and weeks, finally we were lucky enough to find Pat. I really can not say enough good things about him.

Family Trust Dispute
A classic example of where trust managers were mis-managing a trust to their own advantage, leaving me with a small, variable monthly payment (sometimes zero) while the trust managers ensured their own regular benefits. Mr. Riley worked diligently to challenge the trust managers, and he successfully establish a permanant and regular monthly income for me from the trust. He is a bull at pursuing client rights, and I highly and unequivocably recommend him to anyone with a legal issue!

He got the job done
This was a civil lawsuit concerning an intra-family inheritance dispute. It went to trial and Mr. Reilly got us a Directed Verdict which is legalese for a Slam Dunk. If you want a lawyer who will hold your hand and tell you everything will be okay, don't call Mr. Reilly. However, if you want someone who is "bull dog" tough, professional, and knowledgeable - call Mr. Reilly. He'll get the job done.

Divorce case
Pat got the job done! He was always available via phone or email for consultation. It was a great experience in communications. Pat was always calm, and he established an excellent professional rapport with the opposing attorney. All parties were civil at the close of the case, which I consider a win/win. Thanks, Pat.

Trust me... he will take care of you.
I had a big case back in 2011 and this gentleman reduced my charges significantly. I was facing 7 to 15 years in prison and Mr. Reilly somehow got me only 2 years of probation. He took my case down from being a felony to a class b misdemeanor. The price was fair and He also kept me up to date all the time in my case. So sad that I can't give him 10 stars. Thanks Mr. Reilly.

You are treated as just a number. Take your time to read the full review.
I engaged Pat Reilly's legal services with high expectations, anticipating a premium level of service befitting the associated cost. However, my experience fell significantly short of these expectations across various aspects. Here's a breakdown: Wasted Time Impacting Financial Costs: Scheduling a call with my soon-to-be ex-wife's lawyer became a drawn-out process, taking an exasperating 10 days. Additionally, Pat's reluctance to incorporate crucial details from a Mortgage Broker into the agreement prolonged negotiations by three weeks, resulting in unnecessary expenses. This lack of efficiency and advocacy for my requirements during negotiations was disappointing. Communication Deficiencies: Effective and timely communication is essential in legal matters. Despite acknowledging the challenges lawyers face with multiple clients, Pat's response time to my inquiries was subpar. A crucial email regarding a filing went unanswered for five days, impacting the urgency of the matter. While I don't expect immediate responses, a reasonable turnaround time is vital. Lack of Strategic Approach: Engaging Pat with the expectation of receiving strategic guidance throughout the legal process proved disappointing. Instead, I found myself prompting him for insights and suggestions, a responsibility that should naturally fall on legal counsel. This lack of strategic initiative contributed to my decision to terminate our professional relationship. Billing Discrepancies and Lack of Review: The final invoice raised concerns, with a charge of nearly 30 minutes for an email that could be composed in a fraction of that time. Pat's response to this concern was minimal, offering only a 10% discount and refusing to conduct a thorough review. Given the substantial mismanagement of time and financial resources during our collaboration, this was unsatisfactory. In conclusion, my experience with Pat Reilly's legal services left much to be desired. Despite the premium fees, the delivery of effective communication, strategic guidance, and a meticulous review of billing discrepancies did not meet expectations. Unfortunately, this experience led me to seek alternative legal representation.

Response from Patrick Reilly December 1, 2023
We take great pride in the level of professionalism and competent legal representation that we provide to our clients. Sometimes, it is not possible to meet client's expectations. In this instance, in the first meeting with the client, he was advised that his expectations were unreasonable and could not be met, as he was hoping to have a signed Marital Settlement Agreement within 2 weeks. It was explained that there are 2 parties involved, and getting a quick resolution required the second party to agree to a quick resolution, which ultimately she did not. Nevertheless, the client retained us and we did our best to proceed on his behalf. When we could not meet his unreasonable and impossible expectations, I suggested he retain new counsel which he did.
