Alex Reid


Alex Reid was born in Gastonia, North Carolina and grew up in Rome, Georgia.The
son of a local business owner and an educator, Alex was raised knowing the
positive impact that a strong work ethic can have on his professional endeavors.
Alex is a proud alumnus of Hampton University where he earned a bachelor’s
degree in political science. He then spent the next 3 years at the Charleston School
of Law, where he received his Juris Doctorate in 2019. While at Charleston Law, Alex
was a member of the Black Law Students Association and Entertainment and Sports
Law Society. Additionally, he spent all 3 years of his law school career clerking for
the Curry Law Firm, where he primarily focused on criminal defense.

As a black man living in a small southern town, he witnessed the racial disparities of
the criminal justice system which ignited his interest in law. Alex fostered a desire
to affect change by providing equitable legal representation to the underserved
communities. To pursue this purpose, Alex served both Colleton and Charleston
counties in his capacity as Assistant Public Defender. During his tenure as Assistant
Public Defender, he represented clients on a multitude of criminal charges, from
the smallest drug possession to the most serious violent crimes. Alex became a
lawyer for one simple reason, to help people and passionately fight for their rights.

Alex is barred federally and in the state of South Carolina. He is a member of the
National Black Lawyers Top 40 under 40, Greenville Bar Association, Greenville
Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the South Carolina Association of
Criminal Defense Lawyers. In his spare time Alex volunteers with the local Big
Brothers and Big Sisters of America, loves exploring Greenville, and spending time
with his family and friends.
