Andrea Oyola Reid, Esq.

Attorney at Law

An effective and tenacious litigator, Andrea Reid, focuses her practice in Marital and Family Law. As the principal owner of The Reid Law Group, her strategy for each case is adopted after careful review and consideration of her client’s situation.

To her, it is imperative that every case be approached with the utmost consideration of her client’s objectives and goals. Thus, she can determine, at an early stage, the desired course of action for each case in light of the individual circumstances of each client.

Attorney Reid believes that every case must be handled efficiently and with a high level of pre-emptive consideration for the nature of the proceeds. Based on her experience in the area of Marital and Family Law, she has spent her career effectively representing her clients and working to assure that all of their concerns and fears are addressed early on in what has the potential to be an arduous process.

Where settlement is appropriate, Reid works with clients to resolve their cases in a timely and complete manner. Where only litigation will suffice, Reid and her staff pride themselves in being prepared and effective in the court room.

In addition to representing men and women in high asset, highly contested divorce cases, Reid represents parents in Paternity, Time sharing, Relocation and Child Support Actions. She has represented numerous clients in the crafting of their prenuptial agreements and has helped her clients reach amicable settlements of their less complicated divorce situations.

Reid’s years of practice have led to her vast experience in many of the most contentious aspects of family law litigation and settlement. She has championed the rights of numerous parents in achieving majority timesharing with their children and determining child support and alimony that is a fair representation of the party’s financial earnings. She has prevailed in complex financial disputes and helped her clients protect their assets and financial obligations during equitable distribution and alimony matters. Her passion for the legal system has led her to undertake complicated areas of law and unique fact scenarios that have led to unprecedented achievements for her clients.

Throughout her career, Ms. Reid’s integrity, persistence and efficient approach to practicing law has led to the esteem of her colleagues and the judiciary. At the request and appointment of the court, she has represented children as a Guardian Ad Litem and defended the rights of birth mothers and biological fathers in proceedings where their parental rights were challenged.

In addition, Ms. Reid represents both victims of domestic violence and defended those accused of domestic violence. She has effectively litigated for and against the relocation of children and zealously represented those being denied timesharing.

As a member of the Executive Council and the Legislative Committee of the Florida Bar Family Law Section, Reid has committed herself to the well-being of Florida’s families. She has served in numerous leadership positions within the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar and has lobbied the Florida Legislature on issues such as Alimony, Child Support, Time sharing and Equitable Distribution. As such, she remains at the forefront of Florida Family Law and keeps apprised of the updated statutes and potential legislative considerations that may affect her clients and their families.

Within the South Florida community, Reid, a native Floridian has served on the Boards of several local charities and has maintained leadership and advisory roles therein. She was appointed by Administrative Order of the Supreme Court to serve on the Mediator Qualification Board and, along with other members of the family law community and the judiciary, was invited by her peers to join and participate in the Palm Beach County Family Law Inn of Court.
