Andy Reed


Andy, his wife, Anna, and their children, Evan and Emma, are proud to call Lakeland, Florida their adopted home.  Andy was born at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines, where his dad served as a U.S. Air Force captain.  From there, he lived in New Hampshire, Missouri and Iowa, and finally stopped a while in Illinois.  There, Andy attended high school, college and law school.

Andy’s undergraduate program of liberal arts study laid the foundation for a lifelong love of ideas, books, history, music and learning.  After several years of entrepreneurship and work, Andy discovered law school.  While studying law, he gained valuable experience, interning with a real estate developer; a global law firm, and the legal department (finance and economic development division) of a major city.

The practice of law affords Andy a constant opportunity to read, learn, write and teach concepts around his practice area.  He believes the legal professional is a calling, and that his firm’s purpose is to serve others.
