Devon is a graduate of Fordham University and Fordham Law School. He started his distinguished trial career soon after law school when he was honored by an appointment to the Manhattan Trial Unit of the Office of the Corporation Counsel, City of New York in 1981. After completing his three year stint defending the City against varied negligence law suits, he answered his calling to represent the injured by becoming exclusively a plaintiff's personal injury trial attorney.

In 1987, he joined the Firm as a Senior Partner to develop its then fledgling Negligence Department which grew from its enduring workers' compensation practice. Today, the Firm enjoys a prestigious reputation as a leading negligence trial firm as Devon, and his department's personnel, continually obtain many multi-million dollar and other excellent verdicts and settlements for the Firm's clients. Mr. Reiff devotes himself to obtaining the highest possible awards for his clients by insisting on producing the highest quality legal work from start to finish with a particular emphasis on the medical aspects of the cases.

He is a frequent lecturer in continuing legal education seminars given to practicing attorneys by various Bar associations, a faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and authored "Reiff's Road Map to Jury Selection" for the New York State Trial Lawyers Quarterly . He is a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, New York State Trial Lawyers Association and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York (Tort Legislation Committee member). Devon serves as an Early Neutral Evaluator for the United States District Court, Eastern District, is admitted to the United States District Court, Southern District, since 1981 and the United States Supreme Court since 1985.
