RDF Employee Spotlight: Chris Olsen, Legal Assistant!

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On June 28, 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 Chris!

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

Being a legal assistant happened by chance!  My friend asked me to go with her to meet her attorney to discuss her family law case, for support. I was looking for a job at the time and must have mentioned that. A few weeks later I ran into the attorney and he asked, “Have you found a job yet?” Jokingly I said, “I am waiting for you to hire me!” He just laughed.  But a few months later he hired me and here we are!

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Let me see, so many things go through my head.  If I couldn’t sleep, I would organize the whole house and after I was done, sit down and read a book.

Why do you like working at RDF?

The teamwork, and the positive attitude the entire staff has, it is infectious.  I have not worked in this kind of environment in a long time.  I feel very blessed to part of this team, didn’t realized how much I have missed working in this kind of environment.  Also, how everything is paperless. I love the technology that RDF has invested in!

What a few things that make your day better?

Starting my day with good cup of coffee and taking in a few moments of listening to the happenings outside.  Birds chirping, rooster crowing, the wind rustling through the trees.

What is your “claim to fame?”

My chile relleno and lasagna.

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

When my mom was not doing well due to a stroke that she had, a woman that we had never met, came into her hospital room and asked if she could pray for my mom. My family and I said of course.  After we were done she said good bye and left.  We had thought someone from the hospital had sent her, but no one did.  Still warms my heart to this day.

Stay tuned for another RDF Employee Spotlight next month!  If you want to learn more about our RDF Team and culture visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
