Reid Sherard leads Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd’s Family Law practice group. He concentrates his time in complex divorce-related litigation, particularly involving significant assets, income, valuation, or other challenging financial issues as well as contested custody matters, interstate and international jurisdiction disputes, and premarital and postnuptial agreements. He enjoys helping individuals find solutions to difficult personal problems, whether through negotiated settlement or in trial. Reid is sensitive to the private nature of the matters he handles and recognizes the importance of each case.
Reid is based in Greenville, his hometown, but practices across the state. He is frequently requested to speak on family law issues at statewide seminars.
Reid also maintains a litigation and appellate practice. He has tried cases in the family court, federal district court, and various state and local courts. He has argued ten appeals, including in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the South Carolina Supreme Court, and the South Carolina Court of Appeals.
Before joining Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, Reid practiced for 15 years at an AmLaw 100 firm. He is a graduate of the nationally recognized Family Law Trial Institute in Houston, Texas. Reid commenced his career as a law clerk to the late Hon. G. Ross Anderson, Jr., U.S. District Judge for the District of South Carolina.
