A native of Yorktown, Virginia, Ms. Reed relocated from Southeastern Virginia to Northern Virginia in 2002, and has been practicing in Manassas, Virginia, since 2005.Prior to moving her practice to Manassas, Virginia, Ms. Reed practiced in McLean, Virginia, where she worked for a large law firm representing insurance companies in the defense of workers’ compensation cases, personal injury cases, and premises liability matters.  Since 2005, Ms. Reed’s practice has focused on family law, personal injury, workers’ compensation, and guardianship matters.

Over the course of her career, Ms. Reed as handled a wide variety of cases.  She began her career doing insurance defense work. After a few years of insurance defense work, she decided to transition to the practice of family law.  Ms. Reed exclusively practiced family law for nearly ten years.  During that time, she 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.  Ms. Reed continues to accept family law and guardianship cases, but over time found that her true passion was representing injured people, whether in personal injury cases, or in workers’ compensation cases.  

At this time, Ms. Reed’s practice focuses heavily on injury cases.  Ms. Reed has been able to benefit significantly from her years of insurance defense work to now zealously represent injury clients.  She works passionately to represent those injured on the job, or as the result of the
negligence of others.  Ms. Reed finds the representation of injury victims to be some of my most fulfilling legal work of her career.

Ms. Reed continues to accept family law and guardianship cases, as well as injury cases.  If you
are injured at work, or through the negligence of another, Ms. Reed would be honored to represent and assist you.  If you are in need of an attorney for a family law or guardianship matter, Ms. Reed would also be honored to assist and represent you.
