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 spot light on Alysa!

Alysa started out on our team as our Director of First Impressions. And she loved helping our clients so much, that she soon became a member of the legal team. Her role as a legal assistant allows her the opportunity to get to know our clients even more, and help them navigate the court process. Now, Alysa is here to share some insights on what makes her unique as well as some of their favorite things about RDF.


What’s your position and what do you do?

Legal assistant – and I love it!


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

The people! Everyone is so nice and understanding and really try to have a good environment, which I really appreciate.



Are you an Oregonian? If not, where are you from, how long have you been here and what brought you to Oregon?

Technically no, but I still consider myself an Oregonian because I originally was born in Orem, Utah but moved to Oregon when I was 1. Lived in Salem for a little while and then McMinnville from kindergarten to senior year. We moved because my dad went to law school at Willamette.




What was your first job?

I was a lifeguard at an indoor water park.


What are some of your hobbies and interests?

When I’m not working, I like to work out, do anything with music or relax. I like spending time with my family and friends and staying busy in general.



Describe yourself in 5 words or less

Strong, kind, smiley, loyal, ambitious
