I am an attorney in North Carolina with a DUI / Traffic practice in Federal and State courts. The Orr Law Firm, LLC, assisted us with a case for a client from Colorado. My experience with Orr Law Firm was on the highest moral and ethical plain; the firm's staff is made up of sincere, kind and compassionate folks who promptly responded to my requests and calls. The Orr Law Firm focuses on customer service and obtaining the best RESULTS possible in every situation. I cannot sing their praises enough, I strongly recommend contacting them for a consultation before retaining any other DUI defense or traffic attorney in the Denver area.
I have been overwhelmed at how professionally and thoroughly the attorneys at The Orr Law Firm have handled my DUI case. They have left no stone unturned, and have been extremely supportive during every phase of my representation. Without their knowledge and guidance, I would never have been able to navigate the labyrinth of the Colorado courts, not to mention the additional complexities of the DMV. I ENTHUSIASTICALLY recommend The Orr Law Firm for anyone facing a DUI or other offense with a motor vehicle. They are specialists in their field, and as my case moved forward, this made a huge difference. As distraught as I was in the beginning, they spent the time to ensure that I UNDERSTOOD everything that was going on with my case. From reminder phone calls about court appearances, to meetings to discuss a plan of action, they took the time to personally address my needs. This was invaluable to me. Looking back, I will never have to think "I may have had a better outcome if I'd had a better attorney" I had the absolute BEST team possible, and received the gold standard of legal representation.
I hired Rhidian and his "team" for a recent DUI case and was very displeased with my representation. I was fed a bunch of empty promises about being able to save my driver's license based on the facts in my case and when it came time for the DMV hearing, I ended up getting a totally different attorney who showed up and was clearly not prepared for my case. They are extremely overpriced and you are led to believe that you get what you pay for - which justifies their high prices. When the smoke and mirrors fades, you are left without a driver's license and having to do a TON of community service and attend a LOT of drug and alcohol treatment classes. I would not recommend them at all!
I cannot express how thankful I am that I hired the Orr Law Firm to help me with my DUI case. Having had a very high BAC I knew it could be really bad. Immediately, upon first meeting with Mr Orr, he was very quick to try to calm my nerves and help me feel less disappointed in myself. Throughout the process, the entire staff at the Orr Law Firm was amazing. Always returning phone calls within the same day and extremely knowledgable on every subject from the DMV hearing to my sentencing. Although they do charge more than some lawyers do, it is MORE than worth it! I was thrilled to have the outcome that we did and I am extremely thankful to Rhidian, Rick, Nate, Shawn and all of the supporting staff at the Orr Law Firm! Truly a first class group!!!
Don't expect Rhiddian or the other attorney's at the Orr Law Firm to give your case too much attention. My case was a first-time offense &, unless you think you'll have a great chance at trial & plan on taking it to trial, I think I would have received the same deal using a MUCH less expensive attorney. If you have interviewed them, you'll know they are one of the most expensive in town.
The Orr Law Firm may be a good choice for a second/third offense - I don't know. I had a different attorney from the Orr Law Firm represent me in court every time I was there. Rhiddian was only present at one. None of them were intimately familiar/involved with my case. I also thought the attorney that handled my DMV hearing had not prepared AT ALL and thought it was a lost cause before the hearing. Didn't receive the service I would expect from a high-dollar attorney. I did notice one of the previous reviews seemed rather cookie-cutter. The reviewer stated 'don't just think it's one person, it's an entire team' - this statement is exactly what Rhiddian told me in the interview & is intended to make you feel 'warm & fuzzy inside'.
At no point during my case, did I feel the 'team' got together to discuss my case. Each person I spoke to on the phone or in person, ALWAYS referred to my case file for details & there was no collaborative effort.
If you want a team that will work hard for you and give you honest advice then this is the call you need to make. I have used Mr. Orr and his team of Nate and the others for my DUI and they displayed a vast knowledge and approach that I believe to be unmatched. They communicated to me every step of the way as a DUI can take years to get through. They treated me right and even set up a payment plan that was fair and accommodating to my situation. I would strongly advise anyone to hire this firm to assure the best possible outcome for your situation.
The Orr Law Firm has helped me to reclaim my peace of mind. Their knowledge of how to proceed with my unique case allowed for me to put in order a plan for reinstating my license and to resolve my probation. If I were to describe the firm with one word it would be "Professional".
Having received a DUI was a horrific experience. I'm a professional female, wife, and mother and have never had a run-in with the law in any way. My last speeding ticket was around 7 years ago. My family and I were looking at this whole ordeal with a huge amount of fear and trepidation and had no idea what to do. I contacted literally EVERY DUI attorney in Denver and decided on the Orr Law Firm. They explained everything in detail and were very reassuring. They calmed our fears completely. We mostly worked with Rick Hernandez and he was absolutely wonderful! He has a vast knowledge of the law and a background in law enforcement, which gave him a unique perspective of both sides. The Orr Law Firm also utilizes an amazing investigator who was also a former officer of the law. His investigation of the whole event was so thorough that between that and their attorney expertise in dealing with the D.A., I received a much lower negotiated outcome than could have been reasonably expected. They work hard for their clients and are worth the money. Had it not been for their superior negotiation skills, my case would have gone to court and I am convinced I would have ended up paying much more in the long run had I chosen another less expensive attorney.
I am a young individual that made a mistake. It was an embarrassing and difficult time in my life and I knew I needed to find the best representation I could. So I went onto Tom Martino’s referral list. I knew I had found an amazing attorney when I saw all of their reviews. When I called and got the pricing and had an initial consultation, I was a little worried about their rate. Its true, they seem more expensive up front but only because you pay, completely up front! After careful consideration, I decided to go with them. Although it was more then what I wanted to spend, I needed the best to protect my rights and my future. It turned out to be the right decision. Not only did they do an amazing job, but their rate ended up to cost half the amount any other lawyer would have charged me for my complicated case (when all was said and done). The most impressive things I found about the Orr Firm was how well respected each member of the firm was in the eyes of the court (other attorneys, Judges, DAs). It is not just Rhidian that made my experience amazing; It was the entire staff. Each one has a specialty that they contribute to your case. They made me feel like I mattered, and they showed me how much my case mattered to them by how hard they worked on it.
Please, don’t look any further. This is the firm that you need to protect your rights and help you get through this ordeal.
About a year and a half ago, I found myself in a terrible situation that I never thought was possible. I prided myself on my pristine driving record and my responsibility with regard to alcohol. The BAC is always stacked against you, especially the lighter in weight you are. Despite having performed well on the roadside tests, appeared normal, and treated the officer with respect, I was nevertheless charged with DWAI and Weaving. Of course everyone’s case is different, though that is precisely the reason – if you are ever faced with a similar situation – to actively stand up and defend yourself. The process won’t be easy, emotionally or financially and it will require patience, however it is worth knowing that you did everything you could do to defend yourself.
I interviewed three different law firms in person and spoke to many others over the phone. Once you perform your due diligence, you will find no other team that will more vigorously fight for your rights every step of the way. They are professional, compassionate, and non-judgmental individuals who care about your well-being; they certainly did for me. Rhidian Orr, Stacie Woods, Nate Becker, and the entire staff at The Orr Law Firm define “excellence” in customer service. They always answered and returned phone calls as well as emails, even if it meant communicating after hours or for lengths of time.
Now that I’ve shared my opinion with you, it’s time to discuss the facts. The prosecution wasn’t making me any deals. Don’t be naive, DWAI and the associated charges are serious infractions with serious consequences.
Due to the tenacity, knowledge, and expertise of The Orr Law Firm, the morning of the trial, the prosecution offered me a Careless Driving offense. I am forever grateful for their assistance and would strongly recommend The Orr Law Firm for anyone unfortunate enough to require their services.
