As the son of an NFL player and coach, teamwork comes naturally to Lee Reeves.  While his father, Dan, led on the gridiron, Lee “coaches” his clients and helps them game plan for all types of opportunities. The opportunity to help others take their game to the “next level” motivates and drives Lee to be the best teammate he can be for his firm and his clients.

 Lee is married to South Carolina native, Tara McClary.  He considers convincing Tara to become his bride as his greatest achievement, closely followed by being able to persuade her to leave the Lowcountry!  They are the proud parents of twins, Caroline and Daniel, and were, 12 years later, blessed in 2013 with the birth of their second daughter, Harrison.
