Towards the end of last year, in a drunken state, I made one of the most terrible decisions of my life and called the cops on my husband. He was arrested and charged with DV. As I sobered up, I realized what I had done. Our life and relationship as we knew it was changed forever. He was innocent but there was nothing I could do. In AZ you can't just change your mind and drop the charges. I called a dozen lawyers and interviewed them over the phone, but we knew instantly that Mr. Orent was the lawyer for us. We just had that gut feeling. He was honest about the difficulties in our case and warned us of possible outcomes, but he was also positive. He didn't give us any promises, but assured us he was confident. He urged us to try to move past the situation and get back to living our lives and let him to the work. It was a tough couple of months to get through, but in the end our charges were dismissed. I have learned a great deal from this situation. I can say it has changed me for the better. We will always be grateful to Craig for his help. He is worth EVERY penny.
I was extremely satisfied by the legal representation provided by Craig Orent. I had spoken to numerous lawyers prior to stumbling upon his profile and choosing him was the best decision I made for my situation. He was very professional, knowledgeable, kept me fully informed throughout the process and most importantly he took the time to dig deep into the details of the situation. I highly recommend his services. Thank you very much Craig!
Me. Orent helped me with a challenging legal issue and I have forever grateful for his persistence and legal expertise. Highly recommend him.
I hired Craig Orent in a forgery case, that I got involved in, without any fault of my own. Craig Orent’s tenacious and assertive approach in my case, has given me the best result possible, a highly desired dismissal of the charge.
I am more than happy that I hired Craig Orent for this case, as I feel that many other attorney’s would not have tried as hard as he has. He treated this lengthy, tedious case with the same attention to detail from the first day until the last, and he kept going where others would have given up. He always informed me of next steps in the process, and why something was the way it was. He also gave me best and worst case scenario outcomes.
He was very compassionate with me, throughout this very difficult time in my life. Hopefully you will never find yourself charged with a criminal matter, however, if you do Craig Orent is definitely the attorney to go to.
A very grateful client.
Craig Orent was an amazing lawyer for my case. He was always there when I had any questions. He represented me very well and we got my desired outcome in the case. I couldn't be more grateful for his help and I would recommend him 100 percent to anyone.. He fights hard, is honest, and very timely in getting things done. If you need someone to represent you do not hesitate to call Craig Orent. I found craig after reading reviews on this website and I am so thankful that I did.
I've had the pleasure of working with Craig, as it was the first time I had ever hired a lawyer and I was not disappointed. His timing is impeccable. My case went on for three years, but that all played in my favor, and it was well worth the wait. He always made me feel like he knew what he was doing and he proved over and over that he was right! I AM SO GRATEFUL to him and would not hesitate to have him represent me again. :)
I saw other reviews of Craig and decided to hire him in a criminal charge matter. I can tell you that this is the best decision I have ever made. He kept my expectations down and at the same time he tried every thing he could to convince the prosecutor and eventually judge. In the end I am extremely happy and had the best possible outcome. He kept me informed and even gave counselling to deal with these situations.
My suggestion would be hire this guy with out second guessing.
We hired Mr. Orent to fight a crinimal speeding charge. He took the time to educate us about the law and the consequences if we were to lose the case. He never made any false promises. What HE DO was work this case to perfection. He remained patient and calm and at the perfect moment when he was before the judge; he unleashed his legal magic. There is no way we could have won this case without him. I did a lot of research before hiring Mr. Orent and I am very satisfied with his work and of course the results. If you are charged with criminal speeding, do your homework and then hire Mr. Orent. Be patient. It will take some time to resolve the case. Faster is not always better. And lastly, his fee was very fair and about in the mid range of what other attorneys cost. For this charge it was a flat fee and I liked knowing that I was not going to have to pay anything else down the road.
Very professional and outstanding legal representation. Of all the attorneys I vetted for possibly handling my case, Craig was the most responsive - returned my call on a Saturday morning and spent considerable time explaining things to me prior to receiving a retainer. Refreshing to work with someone so considerate and knowledgeable. Craig Orent kept me informed of all the developments in my case and also explained (so I could understand) what all the different aspects meant from a legal perspective. I would not hesitate to seek him out for any future legal matters.
While searching for an attorney to handle my case, I stumbled upon Mr. Orent and was impressed with his credentials. I met with him for 45 minutes and knew immediately I wanted to retain him as council. He was very sharp, professional and extremely knowledgeable which put me at ease. Also, I was very stressed from my arrest the day before but after the initial meeting, I was soon placed at ease. He showed a lot of care, compassion and understanding for me and basically walked me through every phase of the case. Anything that came up, there was a thorough explanation so as to not be left in the dark, no surprises here. It was almost like working with a family member, that's how comfortable I was. He's hip to texting which was very convenient and kept me up to date. All in all, I'm very glad I found him and of course, I was more than happy with the outcome of my case. You definitely want him on your side if you have a run-in with the law!
