How does the Reynolds Defense Firm legal team work?

Legal Team RDF

Reynolds Defense Firm legal team has six attorneys, myself and five who work for me. All five represent every client that hires us, but one is designated as the lead attorney. The lead attorney’s job is to first be the primary point of contact for the case both for the client, the District Attorney’s office and the Court system. Second, they are in charge of coordinating the client’s overall defense including strategy, timelines, goals, and negotiations.

I could be your lead attorney, but in most cases its the attorneys that work for me. It took me a long time to get my ego out of the way to the point where I could hire attorneys that are as good or better than me. My wife’s office used to be across the hill from my Managing Attorney’s office. I knew I’d succeeded in hiring great attorneys at the point she said, “Dan, if I get arrested for a DUI, I want him to represent me.” And that hurt, but was also true. There are some things that I’m great at especially in building relationships. There are some things that my attorneys are better than I am at.

What does the Legal Team approach look like?

We take a unique approach to how we represent our clients.  The way that the Team works is that all attorneys and our Legal Assistants meet weekly to discuss every case that we have at the firm. They go over timelines, strategy, outcomes, status checks, court appearances, and outstanding items. This way, no matter what comes up with any case in the firm – every attorney knows what is going on so they can step in when needed and still provide the same great service and legal representation for our clients along with managing the goals of the case consistently. This weekly communication allows all of our clients to have the advantage of having over 50 years of combined experience on their team and in our experience, that gives them the best chance of success both in and out of court.

My goal in selecting a lead attorney is to make sure that Reynolds Defense Firm does the absolute best we can for every client.  If you or someone you care about is facing a DUI arrest, our team might be a good fit for you.  With over 50 years experience from multiple perspectives, we can provide insights across the board from our work as Prosecutors, Defense Attorneys and Judges.  Visit our website to learn more or call (503)223-3422 to speak to our Team about what the next best steps might be for you.
