Biography

Donald's unwavering commitment to advocating for his clients stems from his upbringing in the tight-knit community of John Day, Oregon. He witnessed the power of collective support in celebrating achievements and assisting those in need, both during his formative years and upon returning to his hometown to establish his legal practice. This genuine local backing profoundly impacted him, shaping him into a more well-rounded attorney and reinforcing his dedication to championing others.
His journey into the world of law began when his 8th-grade history teacher recognized his academic excellence and analytical skills, inviting him to join the Mock Trial team in high school. His team's success in reaching the State competition ignited his passion for the legal profession.
Donald pursued his legal education at Lewis & Clark, gaining experience at a small law firm specializing in criminal defense, divorce, and custody cases. In 2010, he ventured out on his own, focusing on the same practice areas while continually expanding his expertise in defending impaired drivers. Serving clients in both Portland and John Day, he distinguished himself through his compassion and proactive communication, consistently earning their satisfaction. His practice thrived on referrals, fueling his drive to secure favorable outcomes for his clients.
Bringing a wealth of 17 years of diverse legal experience to Reynolds Defense Firm, Donald specializes in criminal defense, DUI defense, and family law. His extensive training in the technical and scientific aspects of DUI defense sets him apart as a proficient and effective DUI defense lawyer. Guided by top legal professionals, scientists, and retired police officers, he obtained certifications in administering Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, Drug Recognition Evaluation, and the Intoxilyzer 8000. Donald's expertise culminated in his contribution as an author to the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association 2020 DUI Trial Notebook.
