Reagan M. Singletary, Esq., grew up in the sleepy little town of Holly Hill, South Carolina. With its population of 1200 people, it’s much like the backdrop of the sitcom Cheers – a place where everyone knows your name and you tend to stay in line and follow societal norms. However, Reagan moves with her own sense of self - a quiet confidence of sort - and forges her own path in the face of traditional norms.
Her personal journey began while attending Furman University. Her undergraduate experience of attending a predominantly white institution, awakened her sense of cultural appreciation and pride in her African American roots. In 2001 upon graduation, she followed the unpopular notion, at that time, of locking her natural hair. The controversy of her hairstyle and subsequent personal experiences raised her awareness around unique cultural biases, economic inequity, and general prejudice and discrimination issues which prompted her interest and passion around law and order as well as set the stage for defining her own sense of personal freedom.
In 2004 she began Charleston School of Law and a year before graduating, she eloped to marry her then fiancé, only to return to the chagrin and disappointment of family and friends. When her marriage ended in divorce a few years later, she was determined more than ever to have it all – a career, a family, and love – and threw herself into work. Soon after starting over, she welcomed a baby girl and learned that working 80+ hours a week left little time to be successful as a single mother. She left her lucrative position at a local defense firm and went into private practice establishing The Singletary Group in 2014.
In her practice at The Singletary Group, Reagan continues to litigate Education and School Law to include school bullying and defending students with disabilities, Gender, Race and Employment Discrimination, and general Civil Litigation matters. In addition to her practice, Reagan is involved in local humanitarian projects to include recently attending peaceful protest rallies against local and national injustices.
As a woman and an entrepreneur, Reagan knows representation matters, and works to instill confidence, empathy, optimism, and resilience in her daughter Abby. So far Abby is an outspoken, well-rounded and artistic eight-year-old who keeps Reagan busy as a dance mom, swim mom, and golf mom to name a few other hats Reagan wears. She also teaches Abby to use her talents and her voice to be conscious and aware of injustices happening in our current political climate.
While she works to master her career and family life, Reagan is also trying to balance her love life. Work/life balance is a struggle that seems to escape many professional women. Can she have it all? Maybe, but it seems not all at once. She is currently engaged and trying to find balance with her new fiancé, virtual home school with Abby, and personal and philanthropic passions - all while clients and cases also demand her full attention.
