Unfortunately, the entry of a divorce Judgment is often not the end of your family law proceedings. Clients frequently return to us subsequent to their divorce to modify (or terminate) child support, allocate college education expenses, revise the parenting schedule, or simply to enforce the terms of their agreement when there is non-compliance. We can assist in all of these situations to make sure your agreement remains both fair and enforceable as times change.
Stuart represented me very professionally in and out of court, working a difficult divorce through to a reasonable conclusion. He is well connected in the legal community, so was able to easily reach out to opposing attorneys to discuss case resolution. You can depend on him to represent you well. However, the thing that made Stuart extra special was "how" he did this. He was always available, always proposed different approaches to take, balancing strengths and weaknesses of the case. I always felt that Stuart had my best interests in mind, not his. In fact, several times he proposed ways to save me legal fees. I have seen him effectively flex his style from "looking for resolution" to "going aggressive" depending on what I felt was the right thing to do. His default is to get things settled and wrapped up quickly, minimizing disruption to the family. I really appreciated this. When I needed to come back to court for child custody adjustment discussions, I did not hesitate to re-hire Stuart, and would do so again, if needed. At a minimum, I recommend you sit down with Stuart to discuss your case and make your own decision.
Stuart is by far a fantastic attorney and I cannot speak more highly of him. Throughout my entire divorce, Stuart was able to explain everything to me and guide me in the right direction. He was 100% honest the entire time. I completely trust him and his expertise. His office staff is also fantastic. I felt as though he had my best interest in mind the whole time. I never felt taken advantage of or pushed to make decisions that I did not want to make. I highly recommend Stuart Reid!
I was really impressed with Mr. Reid's knowledge of the Law, and most of all his temperament to identify best options during my divorce case. He's very balanced and has an acute sense of fairness, yet very vigilant and protective of his clients. I liked the fact he always put the kids first, and was able to open himself up to frank conversations so I could see the long-term/big picture, which would benefit the children, myself, and even my ex, who's after all the mother of my kids. I found his approach very family sensitive and effective. He also has a very helpful and committed staff, which helps a lot when it comes to move things forward in hectic times. So, in looking back, I'm very thankful I was able to cross path with such a fine professional, Stuart Reid.
I would recommend Attorney Reid to anyone. He is smart, fair, level headed, comes prepared to court, and the judges respect him. He treats his clients as individuals - not just case numbers. I am grateful with how he's handled my court issues in the past and how each entered order is a result of his diligence. Stuart has been my attorney for years. He knows family law and in my opinion, he's the best attorney in Lake County.
I chose Stuart to handle my divorce based on a positive online review and he more than lived up to his billing. He always sought to reach a mutually satisfactory settlement, clearly explained terms in English rather than legalese, and brought the case to a prompt close without creating an antagonistic atmosphere. I particularly appreciated how he handled documentation electronically rather than swamping me with reams of paper. With his professionalism and truly caring manner, Stuart helped make a very difficult time much easier to bear. I would not hesitate to use him again and would recommend him to anyone seeking top-notch legal counsel.
Stuart handled my divorce last year and did an outstanding job. It was over quickly and efficiently, with no issues. He communicated well on all legal matters, and provided helpful advice. I recommend him without reservation.
Stuart is a great attorney! If you are shopping around for a lawyer, do not simply assume that a large law firm will have your best interests at heart. I know that many people have disdain for attorneys in general, but they have not met Stuart Reid. His advice is always spot-on, and he has saved me a tremendous amount of money.
Stuart is a very professional and knowledgeable attorney. I have retained his services on two different occasions and have had a very successful outcome for both. I plan on calling for his services again in the future and will continue to refer him to those I know.
