LeKeyia D. Reid, Esq
Attorney and Founder
LeKeyia D. Reid received her Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Georgia State University and completed her legal studies at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. Prior to receiving her Juris Doctorate from John Marshall Law School, LeKeyia worked as a Paralegal/Law Clerk for The Lindsey Firm, P.C. for eight years focusing on Personal Injury and Criminal Defense. During her final year in law school, LeKeyia interned at the Walton County Public Defender’s Office under the Third Year Practice Act representing several indigent criminal defendants.
Immediately after passing the Georgia Bar, LeKeyia decided to hang her own shingle and founded the Law Offices of LeKeyia D. Reid, P.C. practicing in the areas of criminal law, family law, personal injury, and workers’ compensation. Shortly thereafter LeKeyia D. Reid and Kristal S. Ramirez joined firms and created Reid Ramirez Law Group, LLC practicing in the areas of Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, and Family Law. LeKeyia was a managing partner and practicing litigator under Reid Ramirez Law Group for 6 years, narrowing her focus to personal injury and criminal defense.
In 2014, LeKeyia was asked to take a contract with the Georgia Public Defender’s Standard Council (“GPDSC”) as a conflict defender. Under this contract, LeKeyia represented nearly 200 indigent criminal defendants in the Alcovy Judicial Circuit. Understanding that everyone has a right to good counsel, LeKeyia zealously advocated for individuals charged with crimes that ranged from simple misdemeanors to major felonies such as murder. In 6 years of practice the firm only lost one case that was taken to trial.
Going into her 8th year of practice, LeKeyia decided to branch out on her own and opened her current firm…. Reid Law Group, P.C. The firm focuses on the practice areas of Personal Injury and Criminal Defense.
LeKeyia is not only a leader in courtroom but is also a leader and advocator in her community as well. LeKeyia serves as the current Chairperson for the Board of Directors for Washington Street Community Center, a non-profit organization. Washington Street Community Center provides additional education and support to children living in poverty and receiving Title I services in the school system. In addition, she recently joined the Board of Directors for Springfield Baptist as the youngest member on the board.
Hard work never goes unnoticed…as a result, LeKeyia was selected by her peers as a 2019 & 2020 Rising Star for her superb representation of plaintiffs involved in a personal injury matter. The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state.
