A good friend of mine recommended Coley and I'm so happy he did. I did not know what to do with my case but Mr. Reynolds walked me through the whole process. After seeing him in the court room I knew I made the right choice. When the judge came back with a not guilty verdict I almost cried. I owe my life and freedom to Coley Reynolds and I cannot recommend him enough.
Mr. Reynolds was AWESOME. He told me my options based on his courtroom experience and he was exactly right in how my case would play out. Mr. Reynolds was brilliant in court and really handled the cross examination well. I think he presented the evidence in an simple way that the Jury could easily follow along. When he was speaking, the Jury was nodding along and agreeing with him. Mr. Reynolds is a true professional and a specialist
Coley Reynolds was recommended to me by a good friend. I'd never heard of the man before. We had a sit down and he immediately saw through the weakness of the case against me and the bias of the Police involved. The day of the trial was like having Mike Tyson and Alan Dershowitz in my corner at the same time. The Officer repeatedly misrepresented the truth and was called on it instantly and convincingly each time by Coley Reynolds. I can't thank Coley Reynolds enough for representing me w/ such competence and zealousness. Coley Reynold's performance in the Court Room was exceptional. As a Client....I couldn't possibly have expected more
Coley O'Brien Reynolds has impacted my life in a way that I will truly never forget. He took the time to listen to my case and fight for me in court so that I would not lose the career I love. This career is my whole future and I was at the point of giving up hope. He kept his word and I trusted in him that he would fight for me as said. My case was relatively little to other cases he has worked with, so at first I thought he would possibly not devote enough time, or even believed that it wouldn't mean much to him. However , that was not the case and I thank him for getting my life back when I was going through a very tough time.
As someone who was being accused of a crime they did not commit, I was most definitely concerned for what may happen. After speaking to Coley for the first time, I instantly knew I wanted to hire him. He was very knowledgeable and took the time out to understand what exactly happened. Coley was straight forward with me about what I would be up against, and what exactly he would be able to do for me. Ultimately, Coley was able to get all charges dropped against me, and did so after using all his resources required to prove that I was the wrong guy accused. Coley didn't give up fighting for me at all, and to this day I'm very appreciative of his time and effort.
