The Expert Network© celebrates its newest member, Attorney George A. Reilly
Stamford, CT, March 29, 2017 (Newswire.com) - George A. Reilly, partner with the firm Siegel, Reilly and Kaufman, LLC, has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Reilly has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Reilly outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. After earning his B.A. from Union College, Mr. Reilly earned his J.D. from Fordham University in New York City. He immediately began practicing in Darien in the fields of family law, real estate law, estate planning, and civil litigation. This distribution of focus stayed consistent for over twenty years while he steadily made a name for himself as a dependable, conscientious, and client-focused litigator. In 2009, however, Mr. Reilly decided to begin focusing exclusively on family law, with an emphasis on divorce and matrimonial matters.
Mr. Reilly has he has been named a Super Lawyer by New England Super Lawyers Magazine for the past seven years running , has received the Family Champion Award from the Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies , and has received the Pro Bono Award for 10 years of pro bono family law representation from the Connecticut Bar Association , among many other honors.
"Almost any issue can be handled collaboratively. And I find that there is a blended method, which also works, if you don't happen to want to sign the agreement to swear off the courthouse, but commit to working around a conference table to the extent possible. Additionally, we don't hesitate to bring in resources such as mental health experts or financial experts where they can bring talents distinct from those we bring, as lawyers. It is necessary to let clients vent at some point. They need to be heard."
With over 30 years dedicated to law, Mr. Reilly brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry and, in particular, to his area of specialization, family law. When asked about his decision to pursue a career as an attorney, Mr. Reilly said:
"Practicing law, well, it’s in my genes. My father was an attorney, and I was initially interested because of politics. But my career took a different turn when I got out of law school. I joined a prominent family lawyer right out of law school. So, family law has always been a part of my practice."
As a thought-leader in his field, Mr. Reilly is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve his practice and innovate in his field. He prides himself on participating in alternative dispute resolution methods, and his particular focus on Collaborative Practice, wherein both parties swear off the courthouse by written agreement. The parties and the lawyers commit to dealing with the issues presented without going to court. He believes that this alternative dispute resolution process can be a healthy and even cathartic experience, and he is passionate about helping his clients find the peace of mind that is often so difficult to attain in divorce proceedings. He noted:
"Almost any issue can be handled collaboratively. And I find that there is a blended method, which also works, if you don't happen to want to sign the agreement to swear off the courthouse, but commit to working around a conference table to the extent possible. Additionally, we don't hesitate to bring in resources such as mental health experts or financial experts where they can bring talents distinct from those we bring, as lawyers. It is necessary to let clients vent at some point. They need to be heard. They want people involved in the case to know how they were wronged, and the damage that was done. That can happen collaboratively. In addition to being an effective method of resolution, it also helps clients move on and heal."
