We do one thing, and we do it very well – we represent good people facing Oregon DUI charges.
When it comes to legal services, there are two types of law firms: those that handle many different types of cases and areas of practice and those that specialize. I believe that that by focusing our firm on just one area of law allows us to do the best work possible for our clients. This is why I have chosen to only represent good people who are facing Oregon DUI and other related charges.
Who are the people we represent?
My clients are much more than the charges that they are facing. They are local business owners, mothers and fathers, good, hardworking people with integrity. People just like me, who found themselves on the wrong side of the law when they were arrested for DUI.
That's right. I, too, was arrested for DUII nearly twenty years ago and understand the toll that something like this can have on your personal and professional life. Since my arrest, I have gained a deeper understanding of the legal process surrounding DUI arrests, both from the perspective of a prosecutor and also as a defense attorney. I have combined both my personal and professional experiences to create the Reynolds Defense Firm, a firm that is committed to helping good people who are facing Oregon DUI charges. This firm provides people with the help I wished I could have experienced when I was arrested.
So, what exactly does my firm do?
The first step if you or someone you care about has been arrested for a DUII in Oregon is to find an attorney, preferably one with experience with DUI cases. Because these types of cases are all we do, our firm is second to none. The attorneys working at the Reynolds Defense Firm bring over 35 years of combined experience in Oregon DUI law to help our clients. This means that we are in these local courtrooms on a daily basis and have excellent relationships with all of the professionals we work with. Does this mean we get special deals for our clients? No, but the judges and prosecutors know that when a Reynolds Defense Firm attorney is standing next to a client that we believe in them. Our reputation of representing good people creates opportunities for communication that might otherwise not be available.
In addition to experience, the whole team at the Reynolds Defense Firm is genuine and compassionate people. We truly care about our clients and work hard to help them get through this process, not just legally, but on the human side as well. We understand how difficult an arrest can be for you and your whole family. We take pride in helping people get to a place that is better than before they were arrested, well beyond just providing sound legal representation.
And, lastly, we know that trust and communication are essential to working together toward positive outcomes. And, this isn't just an expectation on our clients. We work hard to earn your trust and will make sure that you know exactly what is happening throughout the legal process by having honest, sincere conversations with you.
While we work hard to provide quality legal representation for anyone who is facing DUI charges in Oregon, the truth is that the Reynolds Defense Firm isn't right for everyone. However, we are the perfect law firm for good people who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law. If you or someone you know is facing DUI charges in Oregon, don't delay. Contact us and schedule an appointment right away – at the risk of sounding immodest, we are very good at what we do.
