Mrs. Reynolds focuses her practice on probate and Juvenile law. Mrs. Reynolds is routinely appointed by the court to serve as guardian ad litem in minor and adult and decedents cases, where she represents the best interest of minors and disabled adults. Her knowledge of Trust Administration and investment advise is a unique qualification for managing guardianship and decedents estate matters where trust and investments are involved.

Prior to joining the firm, Mrs. Reynolds worked in the financial industry where she managed and led teams in trust and investment advisory services in the United States and Canada. Prior to the financial industry, Mrs. Reynolds was an attorney at the Cook County Public Guardian's Office where she represented children, the elderly, adjudicated adults and persons with diagnosed mental illness in Juvenile and Probate Court litigating contested child welfare and guardianship cases.

In addition to her litigation skills, Mrs. Reynolds has been chairing Cook County Arbitration hearings since 2009, where she hears arbitration hearings to resolve subrogation matters. While at BMO Harris Bank, Mrs. Reynolds developed Pro Bono opportunities at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) and the Elder Law Help Desk. She is an active volunteer for CVLS.

Mrs. Reynolds received her J.D. from Drake Law School in 1999 and her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology from Northern Illinois University.
