Richard Morgan will be the first to tell you he does not like to talk about himself. He doesn’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account, and he’s never sent a snap on Snapchat or taken a selfie. While he is professional and hard-charging in court, he prefers to fly under the social media radar. It’s his low-profile and humble attitude, however, that make him a fantastic listener, and a shoulder clients can lean on when they’re having a difficult day. Richard not only provides stellar legal counsel, he also understands that the time he is in a client’s life can be a stressful, scary, and emotionally-charged period. He keeps that idea in mind with every phone call, meeting or court appearance, and he does his best to provide emotional support in addition to legal counsel.

Richard may be a modest guy, but there are three things he is more than happy to talk about — his children, his favorite soccer and baseball teams, and his tireless representation of the good people who find their way to Reynolds Defense Firm. Richard is always ready to catch whatever legal challenges you can throw at him, just don’t ask him to brag about the results.

Growing up in Washington, D.C., Richard’s first job was delivering papers for the Washington Post. As a child who was raised in the capital of the United States, Richard observed first-hand the real-life differences between those with power and influence, and those without. Against this backdrop, Richard’s family instilled in him both a love for the law, and a value system that prioritizes helping others.

Richard’s view of how to be a great lawyer matches perfectly with the Reynolds Defense Firm’s philosophy. Richard understands that being a great lawyer requires more than just courtroom excellence – a great lawyer is also one who leaves his ego at the door, who realizes the importance of understanding and relating to each person he helps, and one who, at the end of the day, truly cares about his clients and the work he does for them.

After graduating from Princeton in 1993 with a degree in philosophy, Richard spent the next decade working his way across the country, gaining in life experience and insights. He ultimately found himself living in Portland and attending law school in Salem at Willamette University. Richard received his law degree in 2006, and has worked exclusively as an Oregon criminal defense attorney, representing and helping thousands of people in the years since.

Because of Richard’s success and professional history, he’s been recognized by many reputable organizations. You can visit our Awards & Associations page for a complete list, but one of Richard’s awards that speaks incredible volumes is his 2017 AVVO Client’s Choice Award. This award is exclusively given to lawyers who are reviewed at least 5 times in the same year with favorable ratings. Richard continues to receive perfect scores on AVVO from our clients and receives fantastic feedback from the good people he continues to represent.
