Reginald (“Reggie”) Snyder is an experienced trial lawyer whose litigation practice primarily focuses on contract, construction, and real estate disputes, products liability, and personal injury. His 20-years of experience handling disputes in Georgia, Alabama, and Texas allows him to represent a wide range of clients and manage various litigation matters.
Mr. Snyder’s career began in Birmingham, Alabama as part of a large law firm where his litigation practice primarily involved handling contract and construction disputes, products liability, employment litigation and personal injury. Mr. Snyder was the lead attorney in two bench trials involving personal injury claims stemming from motor vehicle accidents. His first chair experience led to successful mediation of a commercial litigation matter between a publishing company and a public school system involving a dispute concerning royalty payments.
Mr. Snyder also handled a variety of commercial and products liability litigation at a major law firm in Houston, Texas. He led several commercial disputes and products liability cases to succession and prepared several complex, multi-million dollar products liability cases for jury trial. During his time in Houston, he was recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer for four consecutive years.
In Atlanta, Georgia, he has handled products liability litigation for national insurance companies as a member of a large, Atlanta-based law firm. Mr. Snyder frequently retained and consulted with fire, consumer product, and construction experts regarding product failures, and he successfully mediated four cases in which he secured substantial settlements for his clients. His experience grew in real estate litigation after becoming a member of a small, commercial real estate Atlanta law firm. Mr. Snyder represented commercial real estate owners, property managers and landlords and successfully managed dispossessory bench trials and negotiated numerous monetary settlements. He advised his commercial real estate clients on navigating pre-litigation, interpreting and enforcing lease terms, drafting lease amendments and being compliant with municipal, county and state ordinances.
In 2010, Mr. Snyder co-founded his own law firm in Atlanta where he primarily handled matters involving contract, construction, and real estate disputes on behalf of numerous private and publicly-traded companies, city and county governments, quasi-governmental entities, and the State of Georgia.
Mr. Snyder is married and has two children. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, reading, and attending professional sporting events.
