Best Choice
Frank Orabona, the attorney I was recommended to use for my brother was the best recommendation we have ever received. Frank was extremely knowledgeable, compassionate beyond belief, always available and worked all the moving parts of this case magnificently to a successful end result. I would highly suggest if you are looking for a criminal defense attorney there would be no other choice but FRANK ORABONA.

I was charged with a d.u.i and i knew it was a serious offense and one that i did not need on my record. I looked around and spoke with different attorneys but I did not get the same confidence and knowledge that Frank Orabona offered. He suggested that we take my case to trial and we did I was found not guilty!!! I could not be more satisfied with his service. Thanks!

Best Attorney in Rhode Island
Frank has been of service to myself and my family many-a-time. What separates him from other attorneys is, no matter his workload he makes sure to keep you UPDATED. He calls me directly, updates myself on the status of things, and ultimately gets RESULTS. Many attorneys work with smoke and mirrors; once you’ve paid the fee, they disappear, leaving me personally stressed an anxious. I owe Frank my deepest of thank you’s. I would also like to recognize the extremely diligent and professional Rosie for always sending me gentle reminders, and acting in a timely manner. Best attorney in the state, Frank I appreciate you more than words can say.

I recommend Frank Orabona
Anytime I have a legal matter I call Orabona because he does excellent work in not only fighting FOR me, but also PROTECTING my interests! I highly recommend him for any family or superior court needs you might have. I not only recommend attorney Frank Orabona, but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledge, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. He helped me with my car accident, he is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else.

Lifesaver
When a situation arose that caused me great concern for my future, I called Attorney Frank Orabona immediately. His calming tone eases anxiety immediately. His knowledge of the law and confidence was reassuring. He is prompt and to the point. He was able to take control of the situation and set out a strategy that saved me from a potentialy unfair and awful outcome. I would not go anywhere else for legal help ever! Thanks so much!

Five Star Service
The service at Orabona Law has been nothing but the best. I have always had clarity on what is going on in reference to my case with the best representation from attorney Frank Orabona. At most law firms you don't have an intricate connection with the attorney and/or staff, but here you do. This firm only wants the best for you in terms of winning your case and receiving the justice you deserve. Highly recommend!

Highly Competent, Attentive and Supportive
I am so impressed with the service I received from Attorney Frank Orabona that I had to write this review. When you are going through a criminal case and your freedom is in jeopardy, it is of the utmost importance to have a lawyer that is not only highly competent and attentive, but also supportive. I found that in Frank. From my first call, he understood my case, and immediately got to work. Frank or Rosie always kept me informed every step of the way. In the end we achieved a successful result. Frank was supportive and encouraging, while not overpromising. He was able to keep me calm throughout the process. I know I have told you privately thank you, but I want to make sure I thank you publicly as well. Thank you!

Best You Can Find
I hired Mr. Oabona for the first time about 15 years ago. He gave me much personal attention and had very competent assistants in his office helping in my case. I was awarded far more than i had expected and was very pleased that justice was served. Since then, i have hired him throughout the years and have referred my family members also. We have been nothing but pleased with his results. I will turn to him in the future if necessary.

Frank Orabona is the best!
I first met Frank after letting go of another attorney and needed help with my case. He was instantly attentive and most importantly he cared. He is very professional and honest. He is straight up with you and explains possible outcomes. He doesn’t make false promises and tell you what you want to hear just to get hired. Frank responds quickly to texts and phone calls. Within just a couple days he made more progress on my case than my prior attorney made in over one year. Attorney Frank Orabona is the best! Thank you.

Impressed
Frank did a fantastic job! I was impressed on how professional and understanding he is. He represented me for two cases and handled one that was difficult in the beginning and took care of it quickly. I didn’t even have to show up to court! The other case went smoothly as well. I would definitely hire him again, God forbid I ever have to. I recommend him to anyone having serious legal issues or minor!

My Case was Dismissed!
Having never been in trouble with the law, Attorney Frank Orabona was exactly what I was looking for. He made sure to explain the process to me and made me feel very comfortable every step of the way. Frank was able to get my case dropped and has helped me to get my file expunged. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you Frank

Very Pleasant and Helpful
I was in a car accident and contacted, Orabona Law Offices. I was transferred to Frank Orabona right away. He was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. His office set up an appointment the next day. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them.
