Top Notch Lawyer
Mr. Rea helped me navigate through a child custody dispute. He is experienced, professional, wise, responsive and communicates. Returns phone calls! With great expertise, he negotiated an agreement with the other party that was satisfactory to all, while protecting the child's best interests and mine. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Lawyer
On multiple occasions has represented me and performed outstanding each time. He is efficient, knowledgeable and ethical. I appreciate the advice he has provided over the years and how he helped set realistic expectations. I have recommended Cyrus to others and they have reported back with comparable results.

No fault of Mr Rea my divorce settlement was in a mess. He stepped in corrected the problems and gave me the information that helped me greatly in settling the outstanding concerns of mine. Yes he cost more but he is worth it.

Extremely Pleased!
I am so excited by the way Mr. Rea handled my case! He listened to my issues and was able to get the case moved and resolved timely. He was very prepared and professional. The attorney for the other party said that I hired a “bull dog” to get him! I would highly recommend Mr. Rea! Not only is he very experienced, he’s also fair with his fees. Thank you so much Mr. Rea!

Satisfied client
I have been very happy with Mr. Rea's services. He did a great job representing me in court. He was able to use what my ex meant for my harm to my favor. He was very prepared and knew what was admissible which was key to my case.

Wonderful Experience
My ex drug me through several hearings. Every time we went to court, I was amazed at how deftl Mr. Rea devestated the other side. It was amazing to watch. He knew every detail abou tthe case and the other attorney wasn't as prepared and the judge could tell. I got everythign I wanted plus mre and I would not every use another lawyer.

Does not seem trustworthy
I should have known better. My initial instinct told me that this person is not a honest man. His eyes are devious, but I decided to not trust my feelings and go with what he was telling me about himself. He turned out to not trustworthy and his actions cost me about $5,000. His representations in my case were false led me to lose. Do I have a case to sue him? I think I would win hands down, but I don't want to go to court and sue a lawyer. Maybe I should, but I thought I move on and warn others.
