    • I recommend John Ogden.
    • I hired John 6-12 months ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    I was facing prison time (and a litany of other punishments) as a result of a Tier 3, Refusal, Second Offense DUI in Pennsylvania, Feb 2013.

    To say I was impressed with Atty. Ogden would be a vast understatement. The skill and strategy he employed not only provided a not guilty verdict, but allowed me to keep my job, my security clearance, and most importantly, kept me out of prison.

    His knowledge of traffic law and the State Police DUI handbook was astonishing. Atty Ogden was actually able to get arresting officer to rescind 6 of the 7 so called "indicators" that he observed, which led to my arrest.

    Additionally, his staff of Paralegals made sure I was always aware of trial dates, statuses of motions filed on my behalf, and most importantly, helped me relax and stay calm during the 8-month journey to trial. Shout out to Rita! You were a lifesaver!

    Lastly, Atty Ogden did not provide me with false hope or overstated promises. He was honest with potential outcomes and did not sugar coat. He did exactly what he said that he would and put extensive time and effort into preparing my case.

    I would HIGHLY reccomend Atty. Ogden to anyone facing a DUI/DWI charge.

    • I recommend John Ogden.
    • I hired John 6-12 months ago.
    • John handled my Commercial matter.

    Mr. Ogden provided me with an outstanding litigation prevention plan for my business. I deal with commercial contracts on a regular basis and as a small business owner I needed help. He was well worth the fee he charged me. Funny thing is that he was recommended to me by my cousin who Mr. Ogden helped get an amazing plea deal for various criminal charges. Mr. Ogden kept him out of jail!!!

    • I recommend John Ogden.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Attorney Ogden took my case Pro Bono. There was never a delay in communication. He and his staff kept me informed and were VERY helpful. I won my case.

    • I recommend John Ogden.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had consultations with two other Attorney's in York before meeting with Attorney Ogden who I chose to represent me. He explained everything in detail about my case and the charges against me in and for the first time in weeks, I knew and understood what I was up against. I was finally aware of both the best and the worst possible outcome in the criminal case against me. There was no more guessing. Lucky for me, because of Attorney Ogden, my case ended with the BEST possible outcome.

    • I recommend John Ogden.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ogden does his homework and doesn't use a "cookie-cutter" approach to DUI. He researches before court. I was MUCH happier with him than with my other attorney AND with our results!

    John has been my lawyer for the last few years. He has helped a number of my family memebers, and has aided me in domestics with my child. John is always very responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and keeps me very well imformed with any information obtained. I would recommend him to anyone.
