Douglas A. Reed, licensed in both Nevada & California, mainly represents people hurt in accidents. Douglas and Daniel Reed, see below, filed suit on and ultimately settled for $1,900,000 a car accident case involving severe leg injuries. Douglas Reed has also obtained six figure settlements in two legal malpractice cases arising from failed medical malpractice cases.
Daniel J. Reed, licensed in Nevada, California and Arizona, also mainly represents people hurt in accidents. Prior to joining the family firm, he worked as a Plaintiff's attorney in California and then as a defense attorney for a Las Vegas firm. His prior experience as a defense attorney gives him valuable insight into how the defense tries to defeat Plaintiffs' claims. In 2015 he won the Avvo "Client's Choice" award. For 2016 he has been named a "Top 40 Under 40 Litigation Lawyer" in the State of Nevada by the American Society of Legal Advocates.
Jonathan C. Reed's two biggest cases involved accident victims who sustained severe brain damage and needed and obtained funding for a total life care. One victim was a young boy who fell into a swimming pool and was revived only after sustaining profound brain damage. The apartment complex in which the boy lived paid several million dollars for their carelessness in not having a working self-latching gate at the pool entrance. The other victim was a young woman driving home from work. An improperly connected trailer detached from a pick-up truck and the tongue of the trailer went through her windshield and her skull. In this case the construction company towing the trailer (with an improper connection) and the manufacturer of the trailer (which sold it without safety chains) each contributed several million dollars to the life care plan for this young woman.
For car, truck, and boating accidents in which there is a favorable police report (you are not cited; the other side is cited OR you are a passenger and your driver is cited even if your driver is a family member) OR you are the driver and there is no police report but it is obvious that you were not at fault (for example, you were rear-ended) we offer a low discount no gimmick fee of 25% of the gross recovery and the discount fee remains the same whether or not we have to file suit or go to trial to win your case.
