Sacramento County



It was in 1901 that this successful lawyer came to Sacramento, and the admirable career that he has since made has brought him the congratulations of a wide circle of acquaintances. Aaron B. Reynolds was born in Fort Jones, Cal, July 28, 1878, a son of Isaac and Clara (Barr) Reynolds, pioneers of Siskiyou county. He attended the public school and the Siskiyou county high school and was graduated from the latter in 1898. He then entered the University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, where he was graduated with the degree of LL. B. in 1901.

Almost immediately after leaving college Mr. Reynolds came to Sacramento and was admitted to practice at the bar of the supreme court and of the lesser courts. He entered at once upon the active practice of his profession, and has appeared in several cases of note which are a part of the judicial history of the county and the state. In all of these, as well as in many less important cases, he has been very successful, not necessarily winning all of them, but accomplishing in all of them all that it was reasonably possible for any lawyer to achieve. His clientele, now large, is constantly widening, and as the years pass matters of greater and still greater import are entrusted to him.. His advice is sought not alone by those who seek litigation, but by wise and careful men who would avoid it, and, once given, it is found to be sound and based on the true fundamental principles of the law.

His birth within the borders of California made Mr. Reynolds eligible to membership in the Native Sons of the Golden West, an organization in which he is deeply interested and which he advances by every means at his command. He preserves college memories by affiliation with the University club. In politics he is independent. He married, at Sacramento, February 8, 1905, Miss Beryl Patrick, and they have a daughter, Beth, now six years old.
