Exceptional, Careful, Detail Oriented Attorney
Cory Rein represented me in a divorce in 2010. He protected my interests and caught many details that might have slipped by a less experienced attorney. I was an emotional wreck and having an expert litigator on my side was very reassuring. His knowledge of Snohomish County court history and common decisions helped inform our choices in mediation and we were able to reach an agreement by the end of the day, saving me many court costs. I greatly appreciate his work on my behalf.

Family Law: Child Support Modification
Cory is the best attorney I've ever hired (unfortunately, being divorced with children for the past 14 years, I've more experience than I'd like in hiring family law attorneys). Cory is the voice of reason, fair, and genuinely cares about providing positive results for his clients. I highly recommend Cory to anyone facing family law adversity. Wish I would've met him 14 years ago.

Lawyer with compassion
I could not have been any happier with the services Cory Rein provided for me, he was above and beyond the call of duty. The thing about him that impressed me the most was his compassion and his sincerity ,always thinking in the best interest of me. He is a man of his word and I would use him again if the need should arise. I highly recommend him.
