Reed recently retired from the firm to Vail, Colorado with his wife and three sons. At the end of his career, Reed had over 35 years of experience as a counselor and trial attorney representing companies, partnerships, and majority business owners in federal and state courts throughout the country, and before the long list of government agencies that impose on employers every day.
Reed’s practice was focused on resolving disputes that arose out of employment, partnership, and shareholder relationships, and on defending against the myriad of claims connected with an employer’s workplace. These claims ran the gamut — from charges of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation — through wage issues and questions of workplace safety — to business protection concerns prompted by union attacks and challenges to non-disclosure, non-competition, and anti-raiding measures.
Reed is a past President of the Peoria County Bar Association, and a past Chair of the Boards serving the Illinois Valley Public Telecommunications Corporation [WTVP], the Center for Prevention of Abuse, and the Manor Vail Condominium Association [Vail, Colorado]. He is a past recipient of the Illinois State Bar Association Board of Governor’s Award and a member of the American Bar Association’s Litigation and Labor & Employment Law Sections. Reed is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
