Attorney Forrest Reid

A Second-Generation Advocate For The Accused

Forrest Reid

Some attorneys only dabble in criminal defense. They see it as a quick way to make a buck. They aim to settle cases — avoiding the work of trial — as much as possible. Others are former prosecutors who lack a passion for standing up for the underdogs.

I'm a different sort of lawyer. As a second-generation defense attorney, I have deep roots in the criminal defense field. I have devoted my entire career — which spans over three decades — to protecting the rights of the accused.

How My Approach Is Different

Big-city lawyers sometimes fancy themselves too important for the many detailed tasks that make up the legwork of criminal cases. As a local lawyer with longstanding connections in the community, I offer the friendly and responsive service you expect from a small-town practice. At the same time, however, I bring an exemplary track record of experience to the table. I have handled matters ranging from first-time DUIIs to serious violent crimes,drug crimes and more. Over the course of my career, I have gained invaluable insight by representing more than 15,000 defendants and handling more than 1,500 trials.

In my office, you will quickly find that your case matters. I will never skimp on your defense just to wrap up the file. On the contrary, I will devote the highest level of attention necessary for pursuing the best result possible.
