Highly Recommend!!
I would highly recommend Kyle Vinyard and the entire team at Reynolds Defense Firm. I got a DUII, something I never thought I’d ever be involved with, and I didn’t have any idea what to do. I called them to inquire, thinking I’d probably not get an attorney and every single person I spoke to and worked with treated me so kindly and with such care and respect. I hired them and have never ever had any regret. Kyle, Amy, Jen and all others I spoke to did all the leg work, things I never would have known to do. I felt completely at ease with something that was extremely stressful. Kyle is knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. We spoke about 4 times prior to my court hearing. He put me at ease, answered my questions, and pretty much saved my sanity. Amy also answered all my questions and was so quick to respond to my inquiries. I could write so much more about this firm. Getting a DUII is life changing. Something I plan to NEVER do again, although wouldn’t it be nice to work with RDF on a happier subject….?? I will be forever grateful that they “held my hand” through this. Thank you Kyle-Thank you Reynolds

It is a pleasure to work with Kyle and the team. They genuinely care and listen to the client and are such a huge support. I very much recommend them to anyone in need. Everything I needed for my situation was right here and very much a blessing in disguise. I’m very fortunate to have such a great team to work with.

Amazing service!
Kyle and his team were outstanding. Throughout the whole process, from the consultation to the court date, I felt so informed, supported, and prepared. It really made dealing with the whole legal process so easy and knowing Kyle and his team were there to help see my case through helped minimize any stress.
