Client Success Stories


Professional and Courteous

I want you to know Rick was very professional and courteous.  Rick is a very kind young man who cares deeply about other people.  The quality of his work was above grade, and he treated me like family.  I would gladly return to him if I ever needed his services again.

Timely Service and Clarity of Information

Over the past decade, our companies have utilized the services of Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. They have provided a wide range of legal services and guided our companies through many complex transactions. Those services included the formation of several new companies, a complex purchase of an out-of-state business, the buyout of a retiring shareholder, estate planning for shareholders, and a complete review of our employment practices and employee handbook. In addition to these “big event” transactions they provide legal support to our companies for day-to-day legal compliance and consultation with our accounting firm when necessary.

We have been very satisfied with the timely service and clarity of information we receive from the Reeder Plachta Murphy team.

Excellent, Courteous, Knowledgeable, and Professional

My family was having a hard time with decisions coming up with my aging father. There were so many questions and I had no clue where to start. My friend recommended an attorney that she had used before and I gave him a call. They were extremely courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. They discovered that my father was eligible for monthly payments through his military service to help with his cost of living expenses. It was money desperately needed. I would recommend Reeder Plachta Murphy to represent them.

Up Front and Honest

I appreciate very much all of the help and most importantly the honesty with my legal matter involving a vehicle warranty dispute with Chrysler. I’ve had to deal with many attorneys in the past in different issues and have not encountered one quite as up front and honest as Bryan Reeder. I have and will continue to recommend him and this law firm to many others in the future. Again, thank you!

My life changed two years ago when I walked into the RPM office.

My life changed two years ago when I walked into the RPM office to clean up my will and trust paperwork, boiler plate stuff. Subsequently, a brief conversation concerning my eligibility for a VA disability took us on a several month arduous journey with the VA. In the end it was well worth all labors in that RPM got me a 90% disability award. Never in my wildest imagination did I ever think it was possible. RPM understood the VA Disability process and how to submit (and re-submit) to get to this end. I recommend them to all my veteran brothers and sisters for VA Disability consultation. Additionally, they resolved an inaccurate spurious and expensive MI unemployment judgment against me by their sheer will and perseverance. My fine was dropped and the state apologized. I have also sought them out for legal counsel on other professional matters, I get good quick answers, often pro bono.

Knowing I have them in as my legal counsel has relieved me of many worries and I have benefited in many ways, specifically with my disability compensation determination.

The integrity of their firm is absolutely beyond reproach.

We have worked with Reeder Plachta Murphy for twenty years. They have helped us to handle not only our own personal affairs, but those of our grandparents, our parents, our children and our siblings. They have always taken care of all our needs in a professional, timely manner. Whatever questions and requirements we or our family have had, whether here in Michigan or out of state, they have taken care of everything. Their advice has always been accurate, complete and proven to be very beneficial. RPM takes their responsibility to provide honest, lawful advice, very seriously. The integrity of their firm and the advice they provide, is absolutely beyond reproach.

Friendly, Knowledgeable, Accessible, and Swift Approach to All Things Legal

Like many people, our family and business was effected strongly by the ’08 downturn in housing; it wasn’t the best time to own a small construction company. Determined to move forward and learn from our mistakes, our first priority was to hire a great attorney to help us structure the business correctly in order to grow confidently with a solid foundation. We can honestly say that Attorney Bryan Reeder and the RPM team with him, are a cornerstone in our new foundation. Knowing that they are there with their friendly, knowledgeable, accessible, and swift approach to all things legal, gives us a comfort that is not easily described. We have consulted with Attorney Bryan Reeder on a number of issues and been guided to solutions and direction that has allowed us to operate more efficiently and confidently. It should also be noted, that every time we have reached out to RPM, we were never put on hold, or told to call back at another time, or experienced any delay in a response. RPM and especially Attorney Bryan Reeder have always made us feel like we are an important priority. We cannot thank him and RPM enough.

If there is a gold award for helping veteran entrepreneurs, Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. should be in the running.

Thank you for the recent VetBizCentral Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. webinar. They were most helpful answering all my legal small business questions during my one hour private conversation with them. Please let everyone at VetBizCentral know that this it the type of help that veteran entrepreneurs need.

Veteran entrepreneurs don’t need help writing resumes or going to job fairs which are useless as all they do is say “go online and fill out an application.” We are trying to launch a business and now that mine has failed, for the time being, feel free to refer any veteran to me and I will help them all I can. The small business world is a minefield and other veteran entrepreneurs do not need to make the same mistakes I have made, and/or lose the many tens of thousands of dollars that I have.

I have sought help, financing, and advice from many government and veteran organizations trying to launch my small business but everyone has a hand out and no one has had a hand up, or good advice until now. Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. gave me a hand up and I think VetBizCentral should recognize them for that. If there is a gold award for helping veteran entrepreneurs, Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. should be in the running.

Project Was Handled Quickly and Professionally

Bryan Reeder prepared a demand letter on my behalf and sent to a company regarding reimbursement for money damages due to their failure to provide quality roofing services. The entire project was handled quickly and professionally. Since I expected no response from the company in question, the response I did receive was a pleasant surprise! I was able to obtain a refund of some of the money I requested. Thanks again for your help! I will use your firm and Bryan Reeder for any legal services I need in the future.

Nothing Short of “Awesome”

I was referred to Reeder Plachta Murphy to handle the sale of my business… After months of tense negotiations between the parties, I can confidently say that RPM attorneys and staff are nothing short of “awesome.”

The RPM team put in many hours of hard work into my case, including the business valuation and superb financial analysis they presented at mediation (which led to settling the case). More importantly, they were courteous of my emotions throughout the entire process, and always had my back when I needed them most. Their combination of technique works perfectly.

The office staff is polite, parking is close, and the rates are decent. I would highly recommend RPM. Thanks guys!

Remarkable. Exceptional. Professional.

I was connected with attorney Jeff Black, a remarkable young professional. Jeff updated my estate plan, keeping my family safe for the future. Jeff is exceptional, an overachiever. I am giving his business card to all my senior friends. Thank you for a job well done.

Honest and Aggressive. No “Nickel and Diming.”

I spoke with Bryan Reeder regarding problems with a contractor. RPM took the case and handled everything great. They were open and honest about what we could expect, and, much to our amazement, did not tolerate the opposition’s bullying. We would be happy to recommend RPM. We felt their rates were fair and we appreciated him not “nickel and diming” us like some lawyers like to do.


Incredible Professionalism. Results were phenomenal.

I can’t say enough great things about Bryan Reeder and his firm! Bryan handled everything with incredible professionalism. He truly listened to me, answered all my questions, explained everything thoroughly, and constantly communicated with me throughout every step of the process. I am extremely happy with the advice and representation I received, and the results were phenomenal!

I highly recommend this firm to anyone who really needs to work with an attorney and a legal firm that they can trust and depend on.

We could not have been more pleased!

We were searching for a law firm to guide us in estate planning. A family member recommended RPM and we could not have been more pleased. We liked that it was a smaller firm. The staff was professional and made us feel comfortable and valued. We appreciated their ability to listen, offer sound advice and expertise and then create a will and trust to protect our assets.

– Patricia Sienstra

Prestige all the way!

I would love to give thanks to RPM for their kindness and work ethic. They were always available in my toughest times, as I went through the death of both of my parents. This firm is quality in every area. I would recommend my family and friends hire them for whatever legal needs they may have. Like the old saying one use to say, you get what you pay for? Prestige all the way! Thank you so much!

– William Tappin


From my experience with lawyers, RPM is different.

From my experience with lawyers, RPM is different. The staff and attorneys made me feel comfortable. That may seem like a small thing, but as a client who would rather not be dealing with a lawyer in the first place, it really is a huge deal. Any attorney’s office can offer legal advice; the difference is how you folks do it.

I look forward to working with you in the future, and will always mention my positive experience given the opportunity.
