      Reid McInvale is extremely knowledgeable and an attorney that will not let you down. It was comforting to have someone of his skill level, determination and intelligence representing me. He listens, provides solid legal advice, and follows through to represent you in a professional manner. He has credible relationships with his legal peers and is held in high regard in the legal/court system as well. I highly recommend him.

      He’s simply the THE BEST!!!{newline}Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for what Mr. McInvale has accomplished in my Custody and Legal Battle.{newline}Mr. McInvale took on my case as substitution for my first lawyer in a post-divorce battle.{newline}On the verge of losing everything, including my children, I needed a lawyer capable to handle a high conflict case. Someone who would not back down and handle a highly narcissistic and difficult ex- spouse. A BULLDOG!{newline}According to Mr. McInvale, my Divorce Decree was the worst he had seen in 30 years of practice.{newline}Reid is a fantastic lawyer. He is thorough, aggressive, very knowledgeable and educated. {newline}He has a broad knowledge of other cultures and was able to incorporate cultural differences into my case and use them to my advantage.{newline}Up to that point I was not aware that I was fighting for Custody in a Texas Court with almost all Republican Judges. This was a turning point for me and I completely surrendered to Mr. McInvale’s expertise and guidance to stand any chance in Court.{newline}Every step of the way Reid McInvale explained to me what to expect (most of it I didn’t like).{newline}He was able to settle my case through mediation and achieved an outcome, better than I could have ever dreamed off. Given the little we had to work with, his expertise and negotiation skills, combined with a brilliant Judge at mediation, produced excellent results.{newline}Reid prepared me very well for Court. He made sure I know my facts, was able to “Answer the question!” (You will be introduced to a very lovely drawing in his office) and gives fabulous fashion advice. In all seriousness, Mr. McInvale approved my Court outfit and got me to raise my hemline.{newline}In all honestly that’s the point where I thought this man is crazy. He is. Crazy good!{newline}Mr. McInvale has a very complex approach to his work and incorporates many different elements. Once combined into a magnificent Orchestra, the Court Room is his Carnegie Hall. {para}He empowered me to stand up for myself and changed the future and wellbeing of myself and therefor my children.{newline}His advice on how to handle future conflicts, build a case, gather evidence and quietly and consistently develop a strategy is invaluable. His common sense advice regarding post-Divorce problems, especially with the children is invaluable.{newline}Reid is an expensive lawyer. Don’t let that stop you from hiring him. He gets you a rock solid Divorce Decree! Not being represented by a lawyer in my Divorce has cost me twice as much as Mr. Mcinvale costs. Learn from my mistakes and hire Mr. McInvale.{newline}For the first time in three years I feel I have a future. This has a profound effect on my wellbeing and the wellbeing of my children, who are starting to blossom.{newline}Reid fought with intensity and fierceness as if these children were his own.{newline}He is called the bulldog for a reason. Don’t be intimidated by his large and loud personality.{newline}Surrender! As much as I hate to admit it but Reid was right in everything he suggested.{newline}He has his clients best interest at heart at all times. He is God sent and simply the BEST!!!{para}P.S. I would like to mention Lawrence, Mr. McInvale's Paralegal. He is the quiet force in the back, equally brilliant and efficient as Mr. McInvale. He easily gets overlooked because of his quiet demeanor. He has been very helpful to my case and I would like to thank him for his efforts.{newline}Together they are the DREAM TEAM as they compliment each other so well.

      We live in Michigan and needed an attorney for our daughters custody case. We hired Mr. McInvale because of his 30 years of experience. He prepared our daughter very well and she was awarded everything she wanted due to his support and guidance through the divorce. Hiring a seasoned litigator was the best thing we ever did for our daughter and she felt confident in court with him by her side even though we could not be there. He is worth every dollar,

      Mr. McInvale's practice is entirely focused on Family Matters (Divorce and Child Custody) and he really knows his stuff. You will not be paying him to learn the in's and out's of this specialized area. He knows which arguments and positions will win and which will not so that I have not wasted time and money. And when focused on the winning arguments, he got me more than I had hoped for.

      I would recommend Reid to anyone. He is an exceptional lawyer with extensive knowledge of the law. He was great at trial and often made the other lawyer look incompetent. He prepared me to understand what to expect and how to deal with it.
