Picture of MacDaniel E. Reynolds

It is a little startling to me when I add it up, but for more than a decade now I've specialized in Oregon criminal law - I served nearly five years as a prosecutor and I'm now starting my tenth year as a criminal defense attorney.

I began my law career as a prosecutor in Multnomah County. The sheer volume of cases in Multnomah County is staggering - during my time there I took hundreds of cases to trial, and I negotiated and made charging decisions on literally thousands of cases. My office was located in a police precinct for two years, and on a daily basis I advised and trained police officers on how to legally conduct criminal investigations and to make arrests.

Now specializing as a Portland DUII defense attorney, I still draw on this experience and knowledge every day. I understand how a prosecutor will react in most given situations because I've been in their shoes. I understand how to read between the lines in police reports because I've trained officers on writing reports. Most importantly, I understand how to use this knowledge to help the people I represent.
