Great Legal Services
We reached out to Mr. Perry for advice and legal services in some personal property matters and he was very helpful!! We were able to settle with the other party very quickly and resulted in saving us quite a bit of money!!

Probate- Mom’s will
I can’t say enough about Mr. Perry’s work on behalf of myself and my family after the death of our mother. He was very professional, attentive, and extremely prompt with all the work necessary to probate her will. He communicated frequently with all of us and answered every question as it came up. I highly recommend him for anyone’s legal needs.

Divorce Attorney
J. Reid did a tremendous job for me when I was going through my divorce. He was not only there to fight for me but also to listen when I was at a rough point in my life. He made sure to answer my questions and alleviate my concerns.

Family Law
Mr. Perry talked me off the ledge and showed me how I could survive my divorce and share parenting on an equal basis with my ex. He was patient during my tantrums and was always calm and rational.

Honest and represents you
Reid and Lisa where awesome. Did I get everything that I wanted, NO, but Reid watched out for my interests and let me know what was worth fighting for and wasn't, and in the end I felt good about the end results. Most of the delays and problems were on the other lawyer not Reid. They made mistakes left and right and he caught them and ensured they didn't sneak something through. Reid set me straight when needed, put up with my frustrations, and was always there for questions or issues. His assistant Lisa is AMAZING and very helpful.

I Highly Recommend Reid Perry!
J. Reid Perry represented me with my child support and custody changes and him and his assistant Lisa were always available and ready when needed. He was always prepared and ready for court, very professional and great to work with. He was very up front and honest and did everything to get what needed to be done, done and everything went quickly and smoothly. He did not prolong things just to make a few extra bucks. He quoted a price and did what he could to try and keep his word to not go over by much if any. I would highly recommend Mr. Perry to anyone who is in need of a family lawyer.

I Recommend Reid!
When Reid represented me he was very up front about what to expect throughout the process and was always prepared and available for me. He worked with me to make sure we were on the same page about realistic expectations and what was most important to me. Reid and his assistant, Lisa, were great to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone with a family law issue.

Great Attorney
“Reid represented me and was always readily available whenever I called him, gave me good advice, and represented me well. I would recommend Reid to anyone needing a family law or probate attorney.”

Arrogance mixed equally with incompetence, add in condescending and patronizing = Mr. Perry
Mr. Perry was ill prepared when my case went before mediation, although he had four months prior to the date.He worked on his email rather than discussing my case while at mediation (on my money.)The numbers were all off and I spent my time trying to catch him up to the facts. Instead of having legal counsel to guide me through the process, I had an attorney who was openly hostile that I believe was only a hinderance. Its by the grace of God, I fired him before he did permanent damage.

Response from James Perry January 13, 2016
This client needed temporary orders and property division was not an issue at this point. She wanted me to get her exclusive use of the house, hubby to pay all her bills, pay her temporary maintenance and provide documentation of all the assets. We obtained exclusive use of the house, hubby to pay all the bills, hubby to pay temporary maintenance and he was ordered to provide documentation of assets. I was trying to use a brand new Surface Pro 3 to have my assistant send me documents we needed during mediation. She got everything she asked for and then ripped me with this review. Some people cannot be pleased.
