Blake Reed

Associate Attorney

Indianapolis divorce lawyer Blake ReedEarly on in his career, Indianapolis divorce lawyer Blake Reed noticed something unique about practicing family law.

As he assisted clients through one of the most difficult times of their lives, and he dealt with issues regarding child custody, visitation, child support and division of assets, he realized he was able to build a more personal connection with them as compared to tort disputes and other aspects of general practice.

“In summary, the appeal is representing clients by protecting the most important aspect of their individual life, their legacy, i.e. their children and assets,” Mr. Reed said.

Mr. Reed takes pride in his attention to detail, a characteristic that facilitates a deep understanding of each client’s unique case.

He also understands the emotional toll a divorce case can take. He helps each of his clients to remain focused on their goals as they go through each step of the process.

“The process can be long and emotionally draining,” Mr. Reed said. “You have to expect the unexpected. Emotionally speaking, there will be some emotional highs and emotional lows throughout the case as we react to the opposing party and the court.

“Family law is dynamic. The strength of our case could change at any  moment, depending upon the opposing party, the Court, and of course my client.”

“I am very pleased with how much communication my attorney has given me. I am not left in the dark on any issue. … I feel I’ve made a great decision in hiring this law firm.”


“Blake is an outstanding attorney. He keeps me updated very well. He has also opened the door for me to establish a relationship with my son and to mediate our issue instead of battle it out in court. I am very pleased with Blake and this law firm. It is great knowing I don’t have to do this alone and I have their support.”

Thank you.”


“Blake is a true gentleman. He could’ve really changed the direction of the case as there were a lot of moving parts, but he stayed professional the entire time. Blake was helpful, understanding, respectful, responsible, and attentive. I think being a real listener is important in this role, and Blake did that. It was almost like going to therapy.”


“I came to you guys for an emancipation order, but I really wish I would’ve used your firm for my whole divorce process as I think it would’ve gone a lot smoother.  I have been very happy with the level of comfort and knowledge Blake has given to me.”
