Reed is a founding member of the firm. He has 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 focuses on resolving disputes that arise out of employment, partnership, and shareholder relationships, and on defending against the myriad of claims connected with an employer’s workplace. These claims run 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.
When not resolving disputes of this sort, Reed counsels businesses on how to best position themselves for the day these disputes rear their heads.
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 and lives outside of Peoria with his wife and three sons.
