Stuart Reid is an excellent family law attorney who represented me in an out of the ordinary divorce. He is an attorney who knows the right call to make at the right time and won't hesitate to do so even at personal cost to himself. Stuart is an attorney you want to have advocating for you in your divorce case. He will bring your case to an efficient conclusion while minimizing costs. I would not hesitate to hire Stuart again in any future family law matter. Thank you Stuart.

Stuart represented me very professionally in and out of court, working a difficult divorce through to a reasonable conclusion. He is well connected in the legal community, so was able to easily reach out to opposing attorneys to discuss case resolution. You can depend on him to represent you well.
However, the thing that made Stuart extra special was "how" he did this. He was always available, always proposed different approaches to take, balancing strengths and weaknesses of the case. I always felt that Stuart had my best interests in mind, not his. In fact, several times he proposed ways to save me legal fees. I have seen him effectively flex his style from "looking for resolution" to "going aggressive" depending on what I felt was the right thing to do. His default is to get things settled and wrapped up quickly, minimizing disruption to the family. I really appreciated this.
When I needed to come back to court for child custody adjustment discussions, I did not hesitate to re-hire Stuart, and would do so again, if needed.
At a minimum, I recommend you sit down with Stuart to discuss your case and make your own decision.

Stuart has a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of a divorce case. He is a strong advocate for his client, however, avoids creating unnecessary issues. I know that when I have a case against Stuart, he will keep the case moving toward resolution.
