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 relo- cated 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 sub- sequently 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.
