      There is no attorney that I respect and trust more than Fred Reed. He handled my Mom's estate and is now our family counsel.{para}First, he listens and draws upon a deep reserve of expertise and experience. Talking with him feels like being with a dear friend. He was able to synthesize all the information I shared in the first meeting and immediately offered a viable solution. I might mention that the two attorneys I had been working with had less experience and were at a loss as to how to proceed.{para}Second, he makes himself available by phone or email whenever I have a question or just need reassurance. I am always kept informed of the progress.{para}Third, he is cost effective. His commitment to excellence in all he does streamlines the process. His efficiency and honesty saves me both time and money. When he says he will deliver a document by Friday, it is there! {para}I am so fortunate that my realtor referred me to Fred.
