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.

Grateful for his services!
I hired Mr. Orabona for 3 felony counts in which I was facing very serious consequences. Through the whole case Mr. Orabona did a very good job of explaining things to me, giving me updates and keeping me calm. Not only did he succeed in getting my charges dropped but he was also able to make me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone and I am grateful for his services!

Exceptional legal expertise with genuine compassion
Frank is an exceptionally skilled lawyer, as he is also a genuinely good person. You will sense this upon your first encounter with him. He is compassionate towards your situation, clearly explains the legal process, and places great importance on effective communication. He and his team promptly return calls and are highly efficient. While other lawyers had informed me that my case would take months to resolve, he resolved it within a few days and even provided additional legal services. I was fortunate to have found him.

Lucky to have been represented by him !
Attorney Frank Orabona is an amazing attorney and I feel extremely lucky to have been represented by him. I was in an awful situation and he was immediately there to defend me and help me avoid being charged. He is super smart, thorough and very professional. I called him again when my friend needed an attorney and he was there every step of the way, patiently answering any questions he had and reassuring us that everything would be ok. Because of Frank Orabona I can return to living my normal life! I cannot thank him enough. I recommend him to anyone looking for a strong defense attorney, you will not be let down!

FANTASTIC
Attorney Orabona is knowledgeable, attentive, and thorough. After speaking with him I was relieved by how kind, respectful, and honest he was about my situation. He took me through the process of how the case was going to go. He ultimately got my case dismissed. If I ever need a lawyer again, he would be my first, and only choice in legal representation!

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.
