    I endorse this lawyer. I am a retired Deputy D.A., with 34 years of daily experience in the criminal court system. I was the D.D.A. in the Mojave branch of the East Kern Superior Court for 22 years. I knew Mr. Reynolds for every one of those 22 years, and he and I handled many cases together, including several jury trials. Over the course of my 34 years as a prosecutor, I dealt with hundreds of defense attorneys .Harry always was well prepared on every one of his cases, and I can not say that about every attorney I encountered. Harry was always professional and courteous. He was always ready to point out to me the perceived weaknesses in my case, and to listen to what I thought were the strengths of my case. Harry always filed whatever motions were relevant to the case. Sometimes, Harry won a dismissal, sometimes a reduced charge, and sometimes we had to go to jury trial. Even for the most guilty of clients, Harry was able to get the lightest sentence possible.

    Mr. Reynolds is a very thorough, knowledgeable attorney. He regularly keeps up with upcoming DUI defense trends and issues by attending seminars with speakers from the best experts in the United States. Further, he has a very calm, patient demeanor that many clients have found comforting while Mr. Reynolds negotiates the storm of court hearings. I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Reynolds.
