Esquire Extraordinaire
Mr. Orr is a seasoned Attorney who's extraordinaire legal skills championed my case to a winning conclusion. He strategically and skillfully navigated every twist and turn presented by the opposing side. I came to Mr. Orr as a workers comp litigant with a back injury sustained on the job. Severe pain was the norm for me. Mr. Orr showed me enormous compassion and empathy when i needed it most. His humanity coupled with his brilliant legal skillsets makes him a hero in my book. If your looking for an attorney who can champion your case..look no further... Mr. Orr is the real deal!

Number 1 for insurance claims!
He was able to help me get my insurance claim paid fast. He fought for every dollar of my claim to make sure I got everything I deserved. He was available any time I needed to speak with him. He even came to my home several times to meet with the insurance company representative.

Perserverance, Personal committed and knoweledge.
Exceptional, Highly professional, Outstanding and supportive. There are no words that are kind enough to describe Ian D Orr.. I was suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, Ian launch a full investigation to determine how and why I was exposed to the gas. He identify all parties that may have been liable for my injuries, such as a property owner, The company I was working even a product manufacturer. He worked with leading diagnostic experts who link my injuries to carbon monoxide poisoning to my work place. The agency I worked for sent three employees as witnesses against our claim. Ian discredited the first companies witnesses so bad the others refused to testify against me. Ian knows the worker compensation laws very well. Insurance rushed to make a settlement agreement. Any one I referred him to from legal advice, personal Injury, automobile accidents and workers compensation all agree " Ian investigate and evaluate cases rapidly aswell as accurately." Additionally, " Ian resolve cases on a fair and equitable basis as soon as possible, with minimal expense to his clients." He is an attorney that is not afraid to go to trial to get you the compensation you deserve. From the first call of emergency response to the jury trial to the last argument on appeal, Ian is highly engaged.
