Vanessa C. Reed


My name is Vanessa Reed, and I’d like to take a moment to personally introduce myself.

Over the course of my career, I have handled a wide variety of cases. I began doing insurance defense work for several years. After a few years, I decided I wanted to enter the realm of family law, where I remained for ten years. During that time, I represented hundreds of clients in divorces, annulments, post-divorce child and spousal  support modifications, custody and visitation cases, grandparent custody and visitation cases, adoptions, and post-decree enforcement matters, among other family law matters. I continue to take family law and guardianship cases, but over time I found that my true passion was representing injured people, whether in personal injury cases, or in workers’ compensation cases. I have been able to benefit significantly from my years of insurance defense work to now zealously represent injured persons. I work passionately to represent those injured on the job, or as the result of the negligence of others. I find this to be some of my most fulfilling legal work of my career.  If you are injured at work, or through the negligence of another, I would be honored to represent and assist you. I will meet directly with you to discuss your case. (703) 530-8810.
