Reginald L. Streater represents individuals and families in all manner of catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice and civil rights cases. He joined Feldman Shepherd in 2023 after establishing himself as a resolute and strategic advocate across multiple practice areas including consumer protection litigation involving defective devices and mass torts; employment discrimination and wage and hour class and collective actions arising under state and federal law; and antitrust no-poach cases.

Reginald began his career at a large regional law firm, where he represented clients ranging from individuals to small businesses, to large corporations and public entities in commercial and complex litigation. Prior work experience also includes positions with the Pennsylvania Innocence Project and the District Office of State Representative Brian Sims of Philadelphia.

In 2023, Reginald was named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Star and was honored by The Legal Intelligencer as a Power Player. He was named a 2022 and 2021 Philadelphia Most Influential African American Leader and a 2023 “Mover and Shaker” by The Philadelphia Tribune. Also in 2022, he received The Legal Intelligencer’s Professional Excellence Award for Diversity Initiative and was named to the Lawyers of Color “Hot List.” Reginald is a prolific writer and lecturer for legal publications and seminars.

Outside of the office, Reginald is active in his community and has a particular interest in diversity and inclusion, scholarship, mentorship and leadership initiatives. He presently serves as president of Philadelphia’s Board of Education and oversees approximately 200,000 students, 20,000 employees, a significant portfolio of school district properties, and a budget of $4.5 billion. Additionally, Reginald believes himself to be the chief advocate for public education in the city of Philadelphia. In 2022, as an Eisenhower Fellowships USA Justice Fellow, he traveled to Finland and Kenya, where he gained an international perspective on ways to improve public education, particularly in low-resource urban settings routinely challenged by crumbling infrastructure, divestment and apathy.

Reginald earned his B.A. magna cum laude from Temple University while working fulltime and committing himself to being an active father to his two young children. He earned his J.D. with a Certificate in Trial Advocacy from Temple University Beasley School of Law, where he received numerous academic honors and involved himself in many leadership roles and activities. He served as a staff editor for the Temple International & Comparative Law Journal, the first Black president of the Student Bar Association and president of the Black Law Students Association, among other leadership posts. While in school, he completed a Judicial Honors Student Clerkship for the Hon. Theodore McKee of the Federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

Reginald is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

When he is not practicing law, serving his community, writing and lecturing or caring for his family, Reginald is a “Four for Four” Philadelphia sports fan, with interests in neo-soul and soul music, Black and African art, Afrocentricity, cooking, exercise and fitness.
