Reggie is an experienced mediator and litigator who focuses primarily on product liability, nursing home-related claims, personal injury, insurance disputes, bad faith and commercial litigation.

He has tried more than 100 jury trials in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Illinois. His successes include a products liability case in which he secured a verdict for his client in excess of $22 million. The month-long case concerned the design flaws in a slant blade meat saw used in butcher shops and was tried in a county in Illinois where there had never been a punitive damage award in a personal injury case.

Reggie began actively mediating in 2007 and has handled several hundred mediations per year from that point to the present. His mediation experience has covered a wide range of disputes and can be seen in the Experience section of his profile.
