Only those who come into personal contact with Thomas E. Reynolds, of Vacaville, one of the popular and successful attorneys of Solano county, can understand how thoroughly nature and training have enabled him to succeed in his life work and have made him a fit representative of the profession to which he belongs. He is a fine type of the sturdy, conscientious, progressive American of today—a man who unites a high order of courage and patriotism with morality and sound common sense, doing thoroughly and well the work that comes to him and earning a reputation as a safe and reliable counselor and a successful practitioner at the bar.

Mr. Reynolds was born at Fresno, California, on the 25th of October, 1887, and he secured his early educational training in the public schools of San Francisco, Stockton and Vacaville. After concluding his elementary studies, Mr. Reynolds applied himself closely to the study of the law under private direction, and on July 18, 1911, he was admitted to the bar. He at once entered upon active practice, and during the subsequent years he has risen in the esteem of the public until today he stands as one of the leaders in his profession in this community. He has served as city attorney of Vacaville for eleven years and is now also city recorder. As a lawyer Mr. Reynolds has evinced a familiarity with legal principles and a ready perception of facts, together with the ability to apply the one to the other, and years of conscientious work have brought with them not only increase of practice and reputation, but also that growth in legal knowledge and that wide and accurate judgment, the possession of which constitutes marked excellence in the profession.

In 1908 Mr. Reynolds was married to Miss Mary E. Stipp, who was born and reared in Vacaville, and they are the parents of two children: Thomas E., aged thirteen years; and Norma J., aged eleven years. Fraternally Mr. Reynolds is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons and the Fraternal Order of Eagles, as well as the Vacaville Golf Club. He is a lover of outdoor life, being very fond of fishing and hunting, in which he is more than ordinarily adept. Genial and unassuming in manner, he is nevertheless a man of marked strength of character, possessing positive convictions on the issues of the day, and he stands stanchly for those measures which are calculated to advance the best interests of the community. He easily makes friends and is very popular in the circles in which he moves.
