Reynolds Defense Firm is excited to introduce Associate Attorney Michelle Thomas!  Michelle knew right away that RDF was a perfect fit for her.  Not only is she well versed in DUI law and how it is evolving in Oregon, she was happy to find a place where she could make a difference in the lives of people that she is helping. We sat down with her recently to get to know her a bit better and had her participate in our rapid response Fun Fact Attack – here are some of her answers:

Michelle Thomas

DUI attorney Oregon

Michelle is native to La Grand, Oregon.  Although college and law school sent her to California and Chicago, her Oregon roots drew her back to Eugene, Oregon where she started her legal career as a Prosecutor.  Michelle credits her journalism degree for her strong desire to get to the bottom of her cases and express the individual and unique circumstances of the people she represents.  Outside of work, she enjoys exploring the Portland food and drink scene, as well as engaging in outdoor opportunities to connect with her friends and the community.
