Richard M. Reed

Managing Partner

Prior to joining The Reed Law Firm, Mr. Reed graduated near the top of his class at the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law. During his time at Dickinson, Mr. Reed was privileged to serve on the Board of the Dickinson Law Review in the position of Notes Editor. His work experience includes clerkships with the United States Department of Justice, Civil Division and The Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania.

In the beginning of his legal career, Mr. Reed served as an associate at a large nationally recognized insurance defense law firm for approximately seven years.  During this time, he represented a wide range of clients ranging from insurance companies, to Fortune 100 companies, and small businesses.  His clients included major retailers, insurance companies, construction contractors, and automobile manufacturers.  In 2011, Mr. Reed opened his own law firm, and seized upon his breadth of experience and knowledge representing insurance companies and large businesses to represent private individuals and small businesses in a variety of matters, including personal injury cases, workers’ compensation cases, traffic and criminal matters, as well as divorce and family law cases.


Over the past twelve years, Mr. Reed has zealously represented those who have been injured in accidents through no fault of their own, and has tirelessly worked to obtain the best possible results for his clients.  Mr. Reed has tried numerous jury trials, and obtained jury verdicts often much greater than the insurer’s best offer prior to trial.  Mr. Reed strenuously works to get the best possible results for his clients, and is not afraid to take a case before a jury, when necessary.

In addition to personal injury matters, Mr. Reed has a significant workers’ compensation practice representing injured workers before the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission.  Mr. Reed has been practicing in the workers’ compensation field since 2004, when he initially began representing the interests of insurance companies in workers’ compensation cases.  Mr. Reed represented the interests of insurers until 2011, when he formed The Reed Law Firm, with the express intent to lend his experience and expertise to represent the interests of injured workers.  The experience he gained representing insurance companies, and large self-insured businesses in workers’ compensation cases has proved to be invaluable, and he is now using that knowledge and expertise to assist injured workers.  Mr. Reed has represented injured workers through all stages of a workers’ compensation claim, including on appeal to the Full Commission, and to the Court of Appeals.  Mr. Reed has successfully argued before the Court of Appeals on many occasions, on behalf of both employers and injured workers.  Due to the breadth of his experience, Mr. Reed has spoken on various topics within the area of personal injury and workers’ compensation, and has been invited to teach several continuing legal education seminars on these areas of law.

Mr. Reed’s current practice areas include Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation, Criminal Defense, Traffic Cases, Divorce and family law matters, as well as other civil litigation matters.  Mr. Reed was admitted to the Virginia State Bar in 2003.  Mr. Reed is a member of the Virginia State Bar, the South Carolina Bar, the Prince William County Bar Association, and is admitted to practice in Federal Court in the Eastern District of Virginia and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  Mr. Reed has found that working for private individuals and small businesses to be the most fulfilling legal work of his career.  If you are in need of legal representation, he would be honored to represent and assist you, and he will meet directly with you to discuss your case.
