RDF Employee Spotlight: Jake Morse – Legal Assistant!

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On June 25, 2021

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 Jake!

Jake has such great communication skills and the impressive ability to connect with people and put them at ease quickly. His positive attitude is just one of the many traits that make him such an asset to our clients and the team.

What are your responsibilities at RDF, or your expertise? What special skills do you add to our team?

I’ve worked in criminal defense as a Legal Assistant for nearly 15 years now, and I wore many hats at my previous job. Learning how court systems function is a lot like learning a foreign language, and I’ve been immersed in this work for a long time

What was the draw that brought you to RDF and/or what do you like best about working here?

I love working with all the great people at RDF, and I love the client-centered work I get to do.

Share a personal detail – Hobbies? Interests? Family?

I’m into a lot of the outdoor hobbies that the Pacific Northwest afford. Snowboarding, road biking, backpacking, mountain climbing, etc. I recently got a setup to do some snowboard mountaineering, which I’m super excited about.

What’s one unique fact about where you grew up?

I was born in Portland, and I have lived in Oregon my whole life. I haven’t found a good reason to leave yet!

Spin the globe where do you hope your finger lands on for your next adventure?

That’s tough – there are so many places I’d like to go. The first thing that comes to mind is a Hokkaido snowboarding trip.

What is the last thing you read?

Ah geez, I’ve been slacking on reading lately. I think the last thing I read was Mona Lisa Overdrive.

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