RDF Employee Spotlight: Daniel Fan – Associate Attorney!

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On May 17, 2021

To succeed at the Reynolds Defense Firm, each employee must be a ‘solid’ individual. Now, ‘solid’ is a pretty high standard. And the fact that all our employees meet that standard is one of the reasons why we’re great at what we do – which is working together to support our clients.  It’s important that we take the time to appreciate our team members, giving an inside look to the culture and community that make up Reynolds Defense Firm.  This month, we shine the spotlight on Daniel!


What makes you a good fit for RDF the team?

My ability to connect with people. I seek to learn from those around me regardless of their titles. And, I care about my clients. They know that I am there to walk alongside them with knowledge and care.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less

Compassionate, poignant, articulate, honest, innovative.


How your professional experience has made you the attorney that you are today and how that separates you from your peers?

The law isn’t my first career. I know what it’s like to be from outside the system. It is incumbent upon us as attorneys to occasionally step out of the system we choose to be a part of, and remember that arraignments, hearings, and trials are not regular occurrences for normal people.  Our court system, while well-intentioned, can be overly complex and counterintuitive.  It’s my belief that an effective attorney is not not simply a court-facing advocate, but also client-facing-guide-in-the-legal-wilderness as well.





How do you like to spend your free-time?

I like to hike and take photos in the surrounding area. The Pacific Northwest is a landscape photographer’s paradise.


How does your life experience help you help people?

In all my travels and travails, I have learned that people are different, but also, the same.  We all wish to be heard, understood, accepted, and valued.
