Fraud Defense by Former Federal Prosecutors
Founding attorney Eric Reed began his legal career as a law clerk for two years for a United States District Judge. He went on to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas for 10 years before entering private practice in 2004. During his tenure he served at Brownsville, Houston and at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.
Having been lead prosecutor in cases involving healthcare fraud, corporate fraud, environmental violations, public corruption, drug trafficking conspiracy and other white collar crimes, he is uniquely qualified to defend those who are accused of or investigated for those same offenses. He is highly sought for his ability to change the government's mind in pre-indictment representation and for conducting thorough internal investigations to help corporate clients find bad apples within the organization and gift wrap their misdeeds for the prosecution.
Eric Reed also maintains a successful civil litigation practice, handling everything from personal injury and wrongful death to construction defects, employment law and insurance coverage.
John Patrick Smith, of counsel to The Reed Law Firm, PLLC, brings 35 years of experience in complex criminal prosecutions. He likewise served for many years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Souther District of Texas, where his leadership roles included Chief of the Criminal Division, Chief of the Fraud Section, Chief of South Texas Operations, Chief of Special Prosecutions and Senior Litigation Counsel. Mr. Smith oversaw major investigations and prosecutions of bank fraud, health care fraud, drug trafficking, organized crime, money laundering, public corruption and other federal financial crimes.
