Summer Lee Reed focuses her practice on construction and business litigation as well as complex business and community association issues. She is admitted to The Florida Bar. Prior to joining the firm, she worked in insurance defense and personal injury, giving her a well-rounded perspective from which to view new and challenging cases. She consistently strives to make client contact and satisfaction a key element of her practice while also ensuring she maintains professionalism in and around the legal community.
Summer’s reputation in the Jacksonville community has only positively grown since joining Cobb & Gonzalez, P.A. She is a member of the Chester Bedell Inn of Court and the co-chair for the Annual JBA Chili Cook Off. She is also active in the Jacksonville Bar Association.
Originally from the Midwest, Mrs. Reed’s alma mater is the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration Marketing and graduated as both a Chancellor’s Scholar and with Business Honors.

After graduating, Summer then chased the sunshine to Florida, where she received her Juris Doctor from Florida Coastal School of Law. While in law school, Mrs. Reed became involved in professional and civic areas: President of the Moot Court Honor Board, Governor for The Florida Bar YLD Law Student Division, Student Ambassador for the Admissions Department, and was a pupil in both the Chester Bedell and Robert M.
