There are only a handful of times in life when you need a lawyer. Criminal charges top the list.
After an arrest, your future suddenly rests in the hands of the government. Your response to the charges will shape the course of the road ahead, impacting your freedom and opportunities. I can provide knowledgeable guidance through this critical juncture.
Small-Town Attorney, Big-League Experience
I am Forrest Reid, a veteran criminal defense attorney with over three decades of experience in this high-stakes field of law. My entire practice rests on a commitment to defending the rights of the accused. I have represented more than 15,000 defendants and handled thousands of trials over the course of my career. My experience spans a broad range of state and federal offenses, including DUIIs, criminally negligent homicide, sex offense allegations, drug offenses and serious white collar crimes. Few other lawyers in the area can claim such an extensive record.
Beyond this big-league experience, I go one step further, offering the personal approach of a small-town attorney. I was raised in Albany and am deeply entrenched in the community. By appearing in court day in and day out, I have built a respected reputation. My work has also led to a valuable network of professional connections. I pass these strengths along to my clients.
Get the best of both worlds: Proven experience and friendly, one-on-one guidance.
Never Too Busy For You
After an arrest, you face many important decisions — none of which should be made without first consulting an attorney. The last thing you need during this stressful time is a lawyer whose schedule is too busy to meet with you or return your calls.
I understand the urgency of your situation. As a solo practitioner, I often have the flexibility to accommodate same-day appointments. My emphasis on responsive service means you can have peace of mind about what to expect without having to wait days or weeks to get ahold of me.
Get in touch today by calling 541-926-3823 or contacting me online. The initial consultation is free of charge. My office is conveniently located across from the courthouse in Albany, Oregon.
