Visitation/Custody
She made it go in my favor! Everything in the papers were exactly how I wanted it to be. She understood my concerns for the welfare of my child and I could not thank her enough!

Emily handled my divorce recently. She was very professional, while being very compassionate at the same time. It was handled in a very timely manner, and I would highly recommend her.

Very Prompt and Professional
I have used Ms. Reed for several different types of legal matters, from my divorce to my will. I have found her very efficient and friendly to me at all times. If there have been times that she couldn't help me, she has told me that it is a type of law she doesn't handle and has referred me to someone who did. My family has used her for years, and we will continue to do so. The people I have recommended to her have also been highly pleased with her as well.

communication is not her strong point
My daughter retained Emily on a family law matter. We feel she seriously misled her on the terms of the visitation schedule. She was under the understanding that the visitation for summer would not start till the child reached school age. When threatened with contempt of court and not getting any response from Emily, she was force to turn her 22 month old son over to a stranger for 6 weeks. We since fired Emily and have spoke to other attorneys and they tell us that Emily should have had those provisions addressed in front of the judge. We had plenty of evidence to justify the need. Now we cannot use any of these issues because they are prior to the judgment. What I find sad is that people hire attorneys because legal paperwork is not comprehendable to the average person, We put our trust in anothers hands to feel security and sometimes we find the wrong one.

Did not attempt to do the job that I hired her for.
I hired Ms. Reed to do a job for me that required paperwork. I had to do the paperwork myself and take to her office. They mailed it. Ms. Reed was supposed to do a follow-up on this and it has been more than a year now. She will not return my calls or messages.

Very unprofessional
Ms. Reed initiated contact with us to threaten involving protective services regarding the care of our mother. Reed had absolutely no background information. Reed initiated this threat based on our mother having problems finding her car in a parking lot. Even after educating Reed of all the care & effort continually made in love towards our mother and all the people (family, friends, Church individuals, doctors, etc.) involved with our mother on a daily basis and even after informing Reed that my wife, who has guardianship and who takes care of everything for her mother and who has Multiple Sclerosis, Reed still coldly & purposely chooses to end the conversation by saying that in Reed having her assistant help our mother find her car, that she has in effect done much more for our mother than we have. It is very sad that a few rotten apples tarnish the overall reputation of even the majority of great attorneys. Even sadder yet is my endlessly caring wife crying as the result of a complete uninvolved stranger (Reed) terrorizing her with the threat of protective services. Looking at the other reviews, it is clearly evident that Reed is characterized as being incompetent and unprofessional.

not a good attorney
she doesn't return any phone calls or e-mail. she charged us over $7000.00 to defend us. but then she doesn't do anything on our case. she quits us 1 week before the trial was to start. once she gets your money, then she is finished with you and moves on to the next person to be paid. she is taking on more clients everyday, way more then she can handle. she doesn't even try to help your case, she wants you to do all the work on your case, but pay her to be your attorney. she doesn't do anything she tell you she will do, and then she tell you sorry i could not get that done in time now we can't use it in your case. when you go for pre-trial she doesn't ask for anything to be thrown out. she says that she is a criminal defense attorney, but she acts like she is still working for the prosecuting attorney's office. if you want to keep your freedom don't use her for your attorney.
