About Christopher S. Reed
Christopher S. Reed, is a native Floridian, born and raised in Tampa, Florida, where he graduated from Henry B. Plant High School in 1986.
Following high school, Chris moved to New York City to attend Columbia University, an Ivy League School, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 1990. Chris was recruited by Columbia University as a football player and was a member of the football team during his four years of study at Columbia. Chris was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity where he held various leadership positions.
After his graduation from Columbia University, Chris returned to Florida and attended St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, Florida, receiving his Juris Doctorate degree in May 1994.
Chris began his legal career as an Assistant Public Defender in Orange County, Florida. He obtained a vast amount of courtroom experience and tried a significant number of jury trials during his tenure.
In 1997, Chris left the public defender’s office and began working for an insurance defense firm in Maitland, where he represented Allstate and other large insurance companies. This experience provided him with an intimate knowledge of how the other side thinks and evaluates claims. This knowledge provides an advantage for his current clients today as Chris brings that knowledge with him to the courtroom.
Since his entry into civil litigation, Chris’ practice has focused primarily on automobile accidents, insurance related matters, and premises liability claims. Chris has represented injured parties, medical providers, medical facilities, corporations, businesses, and insurance companies. However, Chris gets the most satisfaction representing and helping those who have been injured by the negligence of others. He is admitted to practice in all state courts throughout Florida, as well as federal court in the Middle District of Florida.
Chris’ practice is currently devoted exclusively to the representation of injured parties. He is motivated by the pursuit of justice and has a strong compassion to help those who have been injured.
Chris is married to Kathy and is the proud father of his daughter Kaitlyn. He is an avid Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, enjoys golfing and watching his daughter play volleyball, in addition to spending time with his family.
