Insurance claim
I hired Mr Reid back in May 2018. He settled my case in 5 months. Very professional. He does an oustanding job of keeping me informed on what is taking place on my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He will make the process worry free.

Juvenile Court Traffic Issue
My daughter was involved in a car accident near Memphis. We live in North Carolina which made hiring an attorney very difficult. The biggest problem we had was that no attorney would take our case. Since we weren't the plaintiff and there were no injuries to seek damages, lawyers would simply not take the case. By luck, I was able to find Robert Reid. He listened to our case and laid out our options and costs clearly. We agreed to work together on the case and he would represent my daughter in court if needed. He was able to get the charges dismissed for the cost of his fees and court costs. Robert stayed on top of the case and communicated with us as information came in. He's a top notch professional and deserves a great deal of recognition for his work. We are thankful to have worked with such a great attorney!

Excellent attorney and a nice guy
I hired Robert for an eviction matter that was simply a matter of principle. He properly advised me that it would be better to simply pay the money and not hire him, but he understood my reasons. He agreed to represent me, filed a counter claim and worked out a settlement. He kept me informed on everything as it happened and kept his bill very reasonable. I am extremely satisfied with his work. I wish all attorneys were as conscientious and friendly. I will definitely use Robert for all of my future legal needs. Thank you Robert.

Excellent legal professional
Hired Mr. Reid to handle my Chapter 7 bankruptcy and he was very professional. It made as painless as possible and always kept me informed of what was going on. He promptly addressed all of my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance with anything, including bankruptcy. It was a very difficult decision and he let me know all of my options so I could make an informed decision and take the course that was best for my needs.

A True Heavy Hitter
It’s very rare to find someone who genuinely cares about small cases not paying high dollars. My case was concerning the Landlord Tenant Act of TN and after many rejections from other attorneys, I got a yes. Attorney Reid analyzed my case, prepared a course of action and set out making demands not just to the property manager but also to the out of town owners. By thinking and acting out of the box, all our demands were met even higher than we expected which was an additional joy. Attorney Reid’s communication was constant and truthful which is also not seen in today’s time. If you want or need a heavy hitter, I suggest Attorney Robert Reid. Thank you for your time, service, and dedication to my case, Sir. Awesome!

Saved me plenty $$$
This excellent attorney was very helpful, and helped me with back taxes for the City of Memphis, and the County. Something I thought was fixed in the past resurface, and attorney Reid was able to get me results. I truly appreciate his efforts along with my prayer and it worked out.

Amazing Attorney!
Attorney Reid was very approachable and compassionate when it came to our case. My mother and I were very unsure about what to do in our situation, however when we discovered Mr. Reid, he helped us to feel more at ease. Without hesitation he set up our consultation and was was patient and willing to uplift us in our time of need. Above all, not only did Attorney Reid provide excellent service, he was willing to go above and beyond for our case and our case was taken care of. My mother and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an exceptional and knowledgeable attorney.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Reid helped to negotiate a settlement for a quit claim with my ex. He negotiated diligently with her lawyer for several weeks. The settlement he worked out was satisfying to all of us. He communicated constantly with me through out. He even met her to exchange the final documents. I would have Mr. Reid represent me anytime.
