Mac helped me review a new employment agreement contract this year. Throughout the process he was very professional, responsive, and thorough. He helped me to understand some of the pitfalls and contract issues that could arise in future employment that I would not have noticed had I not used his services. I am very happy with the service that Mac provided, I look forward to working with him again in the future.
It was difficult for me to find the words to explain how much Mr. Reed has impacted my life. Sometimes, when you have to hire a lawyer, it can be during a time where you are incredibly vulnerable. Life transitions are not always for good reasons. It makes a difference to have a professional legally advocating for you in an empathetic manner. Mr. Reed was able to accomplish that and so much more. He took the time to ensure I was supported, well-informed, and educated about every decision I made. I hope to never be involved with the legal system again. However, if I do, then he will always be my first choice. Law & Order and Better Call Saul have nothing on this man! If you are seeking legal services and want to be treated like a human, then I would 10/10 recommend.
Mac did an amazing job helping my daughter with some very unpleasant landlords AND a divorce from her unfaithful husband. He was kind, knowledgeable and persistent in getting the job done. I am recommending him to everyone I know! To anyone reading this, you would be lucky to have him as your lawyer.
