Ms. Patel continues the firm’s tradition of leveraging national-level experience with a local’s attention to client needs.

A New York City native, Reena started her legal career in California handling primarily civil litigation, real estate, and corporate matters. In 2012, she relocated to the U.S. territory of Saipan (a World War II territory) to work for the Office of the Attorney General. She was promoted to First Assistant and subsequently Chief of the Civil Division. Ms. Patel handled a range of matters in this capacity, most notably when she successfully negotiated a settlement worth over $1 billion in a class action pension dispute.

Since moving to Maryland with her husband (a Salisbury native) in 2014, Ms. Patel’s practice has focused on civil, and particularly probate, litigation.
