In practice since 1979, Bill Reddin has successfully represented thousands of individuals just like you, from truck drivers with drunk driving charges threatening their livelihood to teens whose mistakes have the potential to haunt them for the rest of their lives. Attorney Reddin established his reputation as a homicide expert while a member of the State Public Defender’s Office, trying many high profile cases to acquittals. In private practice, his practice still includes violent crime, but has expanded to include white collar defendants, persons accused of sexual assault, drug offenses and internet child pornography charges. He is also a lifetime member of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) where he works to insure that no one spends another day in jail for possessing marijuana.

Even when cases cannot be successfully litigated, criminal defense clients of Reddin and Singer routinely receive more lenient sentences than other defendants. Through the use of Sentencing Memorandums, expert witness testimony, drug and alcohol treatment, psychiatric evaluations and careful attention to the art of humanizing his clients, Attorney Reddin helps the court to see the human side of accused citizens. Frequently the best lawyer is the lawyer who knows when to aggressively fight but also who knows when to work with the prosecution to achieve a fair and just result.
