Thanks so much for getting us the positive results we were hoping for!! We were extremely pleased with the outcome provided by Mr. Orent and we look forward to moving forward with our lives. In a difficult and unfortunate moment in our lives, we are so happy that we found and subsequently chose Mr. Orent to represent us, and we were very pleased with his representation, how he handled each of our different cases, as well as communicated the various options/scenarios/outcomes that we could have or did face.
All in all it was a seamless process for us. We would highly recommend Craig (as he preferred to be called) for any legal work that you may encounter.

I recently used the services of Craig Orent for a second DUI offense within 4 years of my last DUI offense. I was looking at significant jail time and a large fine with it being my second DUI. Craig worked a miracle for me and got me in a situation where I could plead for a 1st offense DUI. With that agreement, I only had to do a day in jail and received alot less of a fine than I should have received. With that result, I am very pleased with Craig and his services. He was very knowledgeable and very accessible if I needed questions or concerns addressed. I can't thank this man enough for his efforts and would highly recommend him for anyone that is in need of legal representation!

This is the first time I have EVER been in any kind of trouble with the law, it was a huge misunderstanding but I still ended up getting arrested. My first call when I was released was to attorney Craig S. Orent. He was very knowledgeable regarding domestic violence cases. He put my mind at ease knowing that I had someone fighting for me in this event. He met with me prior to the pretrial and got all information from myself and the other party involved. He kept me posted on everything that happened at the pretrial and when we did go to court, he went in confident and got my case dismissed. I would highly recommend him to anyone else that is going through what I went through. I can not praise him enough I am so happy with my outcome.

I had a public urination case handled by Craig, which he was ultimately able to get dismissed. In our interactions, Craig was always very professional and insightful, but also managed my expectations. After speaking with him, I felt confident he was the right person for the job. He is well respected by the courts, and I endorse him without reservation.

I chose Craig to defend me after vetting several lawyers. The others seemed very unsure if they would be able to help me. One even said "honestly, you are probably better off just paying the court fees and taking the conviction since you will probably get convicted anyways. Just cut out the lawyer fees." He was the only lawyer who said "No, I will not let you take a criminal charge for this. We will do what we can to get your case dismissed. Even if it takes us years." He was so professional, very well respected in the courthouse, even another lawyer I spoke with said "Oh, yea, Orent is a good lawyer." He walked me through every step of the way, told me all of his plans and strategies for my case, gave me suggestions and kept me calm. He took care of everything, but kept me in the loop. On my day in court, I was nervous about what would happen to me. He told me if he didn't get the result he wanted today, he would just come back another day until we got what he wanted for me. He treated me with respect and showed the judges who I am as a person, which really helped my case. I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am that I not only hired a lawyer to represent me, but that I hired the best lawyer I could find.

I called Craig because I saw a very to-the-point opinion he had posted online as a response to someone. Then I read his reviews. Without going too far into detail I will tell you why I recommend Craig for any legal needs you might have. Craig is straight-forward, honest and does not make you feel warm and fuzzy if in fact you have reason to be worried about your case. He tells you exactly what you are looking at as far as how your case might look to the prosecutor. What he won't tell you, and I imagine it is for his benefit to not 'bog you down with information', is that in the back of his head he is taking a microscope to every single aspect of your case and putting it all in a nice, neat little package for him to use as his platform. I had my defense all planned out....complete with documentation of how I wasn't where I was accused of being as well as testimonials from other witnesses that will support me. I wanted so badly to give Craig all of this info because after all, it was MY case and I knew what I had as far as a defense. Save your breath. Craig pulled apart my case to the point he presented a point to the prosecutor prior to the pre-trial hearing and my case was dismissed. NONE of what I had for my defense was even needed because Craig saw a huge infraction in the law from the opposing counsel's actions. My case was dismissed. I will also say I originally chose to represent myself (remember, I knew what my defense was going to be) and within hours of the prosecutor hearing Craig was now my counsel, the charges were dismissed. In my opinion, the prosecutor knew there were glitches in the case but as long as I was representing myself, they would probably still win it because there was no way I knew of the 'legal' problems in the case. Craig has such a good reputation of being thorough I believe the prosecutors knew he was going to see the glitch, call it out, and the case would go away. Can I prove that? No. But I was going to court. I hired him the day before. The case was dismissed that evening and he told me why. Craig and I are not friends. Let me make that clear. But we are not friends not because he has character flaws or has behavior I disapprove of, but we are not friends because he is such a good attorney he knows when "that information is irrelevant and you need to calm down and let me do my job" needs to hit me over the head with a hammer. I didn't listen 90% of the time and having someone tell you 'Stop...that is not relevant...go about your life and let me do my job' hits at your ego. I don't want that in a friend. You WANT that in an attorney. You want an attorney who looks at all the minutiae of a case and can get you the best outcome. Craig isn't mean or disrespectful. Quite the opposite. He is kind. He is respectful....he just does not want you getting worked up over details that will not only get you more upset than you already are, and are completely irrelevant. Trust me, if there is information he wants to know, he will ask for it. But he will shut the conversation down the minute you feel the need to tell him everything YOU think is important. Let him ask you the questions. He wants to win your case more than you want to win your case. You don't have to be friends. You just have to be his client. I highly recommend Craig as an attorney. God forbid I ever have another instance where I need one, but if I do, I'm calling Craig.

When I discovered ORENT LAW OFFICES, where would I begin to describe the satisfaction?! When I hired Mr. Orent, there was not one moment when I felt paranoid, discouraged, or worried about not winning my case. Mr. Craig Orent provided positive feedback to me every time we arranged meetings and he had reinforced his words and actions by going out of his way to dig deeper and investigate my case! In the beginning, I had already had an attorney and things started slipping such as no returned calls, emails, text messages etc. Alongside Craig Orent, I felt I had an attorney willing to fight for me and it was worth EVERY PENNY! As a military service member or a civilian, I would highly recommend ORENT LAW OFFICES at the highest extent. Again, Thank you Mr. Orent for all your valiant efforts to protect me in a time of need when I felt no one else would. Respectfully, Shawn

I was dealing with two DV charges that could have had an enormous effect on my life/career. After calling a couple lawyers over the phone and getting discouraged (the run around), I spoke to Craig. Craig provided the service, support and knowledge to get me through this very troubling time. Craig was very professional, honest and to the point in all our meetings and communications. I would not hestiate to refer Craig to anyone needing his services! Thanks again Craig!!

Craig is great to work with. Very professional and always available to answer questions and/or give me an update on what was happening with my case. Craig was confident about the results that he thought he would be able to achieve with my case, and it did not feel that he was giving me lip service just to appease me. I felt that he was always being honest with me.
Craig was very professional and very fair in handling my case. I would absolutely recommend Craig to represent family, friends, and acquaintances.

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.
