Fast, reliable advice from a friendly source
Mr. Reed drafted a purchase agreement and a gift of equity letter when my husband and I bought our home. He was very professional but also approachable; he treated all our questions as important, even though I'm sure some were pretty basic. His legal knowledge was impressive, as were the legal documents. He completed the work quickly and charged a very reasonable rate. We saved time and the costs of having a realtor; in fact, it was better to have Mr. Reed involved in the sale than a realtor because he knew the law and could answer all our questions and concerns - reliably. I definitely will hire him again if I need legal assistance in the future and I highly recommend him to my friends and family.

6 months and no action
Shawn was engaged to determine if a real estate company was negligent in their handling of a sale transaction. Promised action within one month. He was given all documentation necessary to pursue the case but, despite promises, did not return phone calls and took no action on the case. We asked for all information/documents to be returned so we could engage another attorney and he had nothing to say/no excuses for doing absolutely nothing. Would never recommend....waste of our time.
