RDF Employee Spotlight: Amy Gardner, Legal Assistant!

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On July 17, 2022

Here at Reynolds Defense Firm, we’re pretty lucky to have such an amazing team of folks working together to support our clients. ‘Solid’ is the word we use for those people you can trust under just about any circumstance, and that standard is what we use to describe the entire RDF Team.  Every person here at Reynolds Defense Firm is an “A” player and we each understand that our individual role is essential to the overall success of our team.  We’d like to focus some time highlighting our team members and offering an inside look to the culture and community that make up Reynolds Defense Firm.  This month, we shine the spotlight on one of our incredible legal assistants, Amy!

Why did you decide to do the kind of work you are doing now?

I have always been fascinated by the legal system. I think I always knew I
wanted to work in it somehow, and I am a true crime junkie.

What are some small things that make your day better?

My dad will occasionally send me texts first thing in the morning that he is proud of me
or is praying for me, and those always make my day. I also am always encouraged by
small acts of kindness, either from someone or from myself to a stranger.

What are your thoughts about Window of Clarity?

I really like the idea of encouraging people to look at what lead them to be in legal trouble and working to make positive change in their life. I think it shows that this firm cares about the whole person rather than just the client.

What book impacted you the most?

A Time to Kill, by John Grisham.

What small gesture from a stranger made a big impact on you?

I was having an awful day at an old job, shortly after my divorce, and I went to the store for groceries. I was getting into a refrigerated unit and the door rebounded back and hit me in the shin. This kind man, without saying a word, stopped his cart and reached over to hold the door for me. Once I was done, I thanked him and he smiled, nodded, and went on his way. In the midst of a trying day, it reminded me there are still good and kind people in the world.

What’s the silliest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?

I agreed to get two more cats when we already had two dogs and a cat. It worked out as I took them with me in the divorce, and they were my best buddies and kept me from feeling lonely.
