Born and raised in Northwest Detroit, Duane Reynolds has worked in the Farmington / Farmington Hills communities since 1974, when he was hired as a police officer by the then, newly established City of Farmington Hills. Duane began practicing law in 1983, right here in Farmington Hills. Duane’s practice extends to the needs of a wide variety of individual and business clients, focusing primarily in the areas of business and corporate law, all manner of contracts and agreements, commercial and residential real estate transactions, and trust and estate planning.

Duane also helps to organize, and advise on an ongoing basis, a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. Duane periodically serves on the boards of any number of nonprofit organizations and is privileged to represent professionally the Michigan region of a large, international religious denomination.

Throughout his career Duane has remained active in a number of community organizations, civic boards and commissions, most notably, the Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce, on whose board Duane has served since the mid 1980’s.

Duane and his wife, Janice, have three adult children and five grandchildren. Duane is an inveterate DIY’er, and finds himself spending most of his time away from the office working on household projects.

"My approach to the practice of law is pragmatic. Instead of talking about issues and outcomes that are likely unattainable, drawing upon my experience and the shared expertise of my colleagues here at Wright Beamer, I strive to advise my clients on the basis of what is realistic under the laws and the circumstances as they exist."
