Frank Reynolds joined Foster Swift in 2009 as a shareholder in the firm’s General Litigation Group. His practice focuses on State and Federal criminal defense, family law and professional licensing. He has successfully defended many high profile cases in Ingham County and throughout Michigan. Through his career he has tried more than 250 cases - everything from a simple misdemeanor to the capital offense murder.
Frank's passion is teaching and developing young professionals. With his success comes many opportunities to speak and teach. He has presented and lectured across Michigan to educational, charitable, and professional legal organizations, high school classes, community college and college classes, and he has served in adjunct professorships at both area law schools, Thomas M. Cooley and Michigan State University’s College of Law. These reasons are just a few that make Frank a highly sought after criminal law attorney in Lansing and the state of Michigan.
In recognition of his contributions to the practice of law and his commitment to ensuring high standards of practice, Mr. Reynolds has received numerous awards and recognitions, including leadership positions in the local and state bar associations, numerous selections as Special Prosecutor, appointments to boards and inclusion in Best Lawyers® in America, Michigan Super Lawyers, and appointment by former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, William H. Rehnquist, to the Magistrate Judge Education Advisory Committee of the Federal Judicial Center. Frank was recently re-appointed to the Judicial Qualifications Committee of the State Bar of Michigan.
Mr. Reynolds received his law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and holds a Master of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan State University.
