About Matthew A. Reed

Legal Assistant: Linda Price | 713-554-6755 | lprice@thompsonhorton.com

As a former college student-athlete who is married to a law professor, Matt is deeply aware of the wide array of benefits bestowed, and challenges faced, by educational institutions.

Matt brings his experience and skills as a litigator to his representation of schools, colleges, and universities. In the litigation context, he has expertise in drafting critical motions and briefing – including motions for summary judgment, Daubert motions challenging expert witnesses, motions in limine, trial briefs, post-trial motions, and appellate briefs – which he uses to guide his clients’ matters to satisfactory conclusions as quickly and efficiently as possible. In the legal counsel context, his litigation experience helps him identify salient legal issues arising from his clients’ operations and craft guidance on topics such as sexual harassment and athletics compliance under Title IX, FERPA compliance, and NCAA student-athlete amateurism issues.

Prior to joining Thompson & Horton, Matt was an attorney at Sedgwick LLP in Los Angeles, CA, where he represented a large school district in several personal injury lawsuits alleging sexual assault, and was part of a trial team that obtained a verdict finding the district not liable. He also defended Fortune 500 clients in product liability, insurance, and business litigation in state and federal courts across the country – from inception through appeal.
