Fabulous Real Estate Attorney
Ms. Reed was extremely valuable in helping my family navigate my father’s trust after he passed. She provided the legal clarification we were looking for and helped us to attain a successful resolution to our case. She is extremely attentive to her clients’ needs. She was in constant contact to resolve our case, even during the holidays. I would not hesitate to recommend her services. Thanks Kristina!!

Amazing and prompt service
Kristina was excellent through out our recent FSBO process. We went into it, not knowing much. Kristina was kind enough to walk us through all the paperwork and answer several questions that came up. She highlighted a few buyer's obligations and reminded us about disclosure deadlines. Great experience, overall!

Excellent Attorney
Kristina Reed is the best attorney I have ever worked with. In April/May of 2012, Kristina oversaw the sale of my fitness club and advised me on my legal rights as it pertained to the case. Kristina is very knowledgeable and got all the necessary paperwork done under a deadline of less then 24 hours!!! I would undoubtedly use Kristina's services again and would recommend her to anyone looking for professional representation. Great job! Thank you very much!

Professional, knowledgeable, and caring attorney
I hired Kristina Reed to represent me several years ago. Ms. Reed was very patient and thorough in explaining the process of my case to me. Throughout the whole time, I found Ms. Reed to be very professional, caring, knowledgeable, and kept me abreast of how my case was progressing. Should I ever need another attorney, I would definitely hire Ms. Reed again and I would highly recommend her to my friends without hesitation.
