Ryan Reed recently graduated from Saint Thomas University School of Law in Miami Gardens, Florida. It was his plan since his freshman year at the University of Florida to one day become a lawyer and open up a law firm with his father, Paul. He chose to seek a degree in English knowing it would best prepare him for the arduous amount of reading involved during law school. For seven years, he worked hard to achieve his B.A., Cum Laude from UF, his J.D. Cum Laude from STU, and to pass the Florida Bar exam on his first attempt. Ryan was born and lived in Tampa, Florida, through his graduation from Jesuit High School in 2006, where he wrestled and played lacrosse along with maintaining outstanding academic performance. He moved to Gainesville while studying at UF and then down to Miami for the three years he was at law school. He has since moved back to Tampa with his fiancé Jacquelyn, who also graduated with him from STU and is a practicing attorney.
