My practice focuses on families and children, encompassing dissolutions of marriage, child custody, parenting plans, and protective orders. I have a passion for working with underserved populations and survivors of domestic violence.

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a BA in psychology and a minor in anthropology in 2013. I received my law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law in 2017, earning a Public Interest Law Concentration, a Family Law Concentration, and a Pro Bono Award for service to the community. I was admitted to the Oregon Bar the same year.

During law school, I worked closely with the Domestic Violence Clinic on campus, representing indigent survivors of domestic violence in family law matters. I also worked as a law clerk for Thorp, Purdy, Jewett, & Wilkinson, P.C. in Springfield, Oregon. After graduating from law school, I served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Charles M. Zennaché at the Lane County Circuit Court in Eugene, Oregon. I joined the Reynolds Law Firm in January 2019.

I am a member of the Oregon State Bar Family Law Executive Committee, and work on the Family Law Conference each year. In the past, I have been on the board of directors and a committee leader at the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence (CARDV), was on the Wine and Whiskers Committee at Heartland Humane Society in 2020, volunteered with Furniture Share, and participated in the 2019-2020 Leadership Corvallis program.

In my free time, I love to hike, camp, and spend time with my partner and our three dogs, Summit, Apex, and Denali.

Phenomenal Lawyer
Kayla went above and beyond to help me gain custody of my child. Kayla's professionalism, attention to detail, and big heart helped to restore my faith in the law. She is the most prepared person I have ever met. She was kind, thorough, and remembered EVERYTHING. She really showed a vested interest in my child's well-being!! I could not have asked for a better person to fight for my family. I highly recommend Kayla to support your case.

My emancipation
Kayla was a life saver. Literally. I was in a terrible situation where the system and the police constantly failed me my whole life. Kayla came into the situation and saved me within 4 months from my abuser! I knew that emancipation was hard and very unlikely but she didn’t give up on helping me❤️ Thank you to everyone at the firm for helping me out of a terrible situation! My life will forever be changed by her.

Outstanding
I hired Kayla to handle my divorce. Neither of us thought it would be difficult. As it turned into month after month of agonizing work and stalling by the opposing parties Kayla and Christina were stars for me. They worked 15 months on the case. I always stressed that I worked for them. All clients should hear that. You work for your lawyer. Kayla knew how to navigate this mess for me. Kayla and Christina did talk me of the ledge of the building a couple times. I knew early on that I had hired the best representation no doubt. No details to cover were missed or not addressed. They were meticulous. Kayla is now my personal attorney for the remainder of my life. The whole office operates as a team so you get all angles of help. Kaylas expertise and skills finished the case and I am satisfied beyond all doubt I had and still have the best law team out there.

Exceptional Attorney
I heard good things about the Reynolds Law firm and met with Kayla as a possible choice to handle my case. Kayla outshined all of the other attorneys I met with; even when they had years of experience. I was informed Kayla was younger in her law practice; however, you would never notice this based on her skills, integrity and professionalism. Kayla wasn’t just passionate about assisting me in understanding my rights; she aided me in understanding the complications of legal jargun. Kayla ultimately wasn’t my attorney; she really became my advocate and put my family first. Kayla’s compassion, empowerment and timeliness are just a few examples of her exceptionalism. There are not enough synonyms in the English language to describe all of Kayla’s capabilities. Ethical and appropriate attorneys can be hard to find. I am very grateful for making the right decision to hire Kayla for my legal needs and would encourage you to do the same.
