I place a premium on being prepared for court.
I have handled 100s of cases in front of all the District Court and Circuit Court judges in Washtenaw County. I am comfortable in the courtroom under any circumstances, and always excited to argue my case.
I was an assistant prosecutor for 17 years.  I have an excellent relationship with most police officers in Washtenaw County.

Fantastic service
I used Ms Reiser for a traffic infraction and she was fantastic, Got the fine reduced and no points or DMV notification. Very professional and great communication. Highly recommend

great lawyer
She is smart, attentive and a good listener. She has tons of experience in jury trials and she is well respected by both judges and prosecutors. She shows confidence in court and communicates clearly. I would hire her to represent me or my loved ones in any criminal matter.

"When I found out that Ms. Reiser was leaving the Prosecutors Office after 17 years, I realized the loss that their office would feel. I immediately started working on having her work with me. She is an incredible attorney, with more experience than most any attorney you will find. Her experience as a Prosecutor helps her to see the weaknesses in every case. Her relationships attained over the years will serve to put her clients in the best position possible. I completely endorse this lawyer."
