Founded in 1890, the ACBA is a voluntary association for legal professionals with three main goals: to assist in the due administration of justice, to promote the continued legal education of lawyers and laypeople, and to maintain the integrity of the legal profession. The ACBA fulfills these purposes by sponsoring legal education programs and social activities and participating in public service programs. The bar association's public service programs include connecting individuals with legal needs to appropriate attorneys through the Lawyer Referral Service, providing free legal advice to underserved individuals by telephone through its Legal Line program and presenting legal information sessions to various groups.

In 2010, Indiana Super Lawyers named Reed as a rising star in the field of health care law.
