Born and raised in Chicagoland, Anna Reed has worked in the legal field since 1988. While earning her certificate from Robert Morris College, Anna worked with the Chicago law firm Rudnick & Wolfe as a floating secretary. She continued working there for more than 15 years, supporting associate and partner attorneys and paralegals in the areas of litigation, bankruptcy, estate planning, corporate and franchise, including several years as legal assistant to the managing partner. Anna then served as secretarial supervisor of the firm’s corporate department, managing more than 30 secretaries serving more than 60 attorneys and paralegals. She left Rudnick & Wolfe and Chicago in 2004 and moved with her husband Andy and newborn son Evan to Lakeland.
Anna helped Andy start his practice in 2007, and then, as her children reached school age, came to work for Joe Mawhinney in 2011. While she wears many hats at the firm, her primary responsibilities are in the areas of litigation and probate.
Anna has two beautiful, smart children, Evan and Emma. She is a faithful member of All Saints Episcopal church, has taught children’s Sunday School and assisted with hospitality, and enjoys classes and the fellowship of good friends. Anna is an avid runner and enjoys reading, cooking, weekends at Disney with her family, and talking late into the evening with her husband about work.
