He was called to the bar of Lower Canada in 1794 and in 1807 was appointed a judge of the Court of King’s Bench at Montreal. He filled the judicial office of one of the Judges of the Court of King's Bench, Lower Canada, for a period of thirty-three years, fifteen of which he presided as Chief Justice. During that time he handled many legal cases including many Fur Trade related cases including that of the North West Company. James Reid was one of the Trustees of the McGill estate. After relinquishing office, Reid and his family visited Europe and while in England, he was offered a knighthood by Queen Victoria, but he declined the honour. Reid married in 1808.
