  • Michael Stephen Brandner

    I had a potential client in New Orleans searching for a DUI attorney in Denver. I referred him to Rhidian. Apparently the referral was extremely impressed with the service that the Orr Law Firm provides because I received a phone call from the referral thanking me for linjing him to the Orr Law Firm. Thank you Rhidian.
