Reed Russell, an Employer/Management lawyer with Phelps Dunbar LLP in Tampa, Florida has been practicing labor and employment law for 15 years and has been a Section member since 2008. Since becoming a Section member the general meetings are his favorite, where he has found the most value in attending our meetings, where he’s learned a great deal while also maintaining law related contacts all across the country. Mr. Russell’s practice focuses on representing employers in wage and hour and employment discrimination law, with an emphasis on collective and class action litigation, other complex litigation and strategic advice. He also represents employers in claims raising equal employment opportunity issues, including claims of single-plaintiff, multi-plaintiff or class discrimination, and provides advice on employment practices, including through statistical analysis. In addition, Mr. Russell is a former major in the Army National Guard and a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This self-described “reliable” lawyer is a great member to get to know.
