Where do I begin?... Well, I will start off by saying Terry is a down to earth man who really knows his stuff which is exactly what you need in a lawyer! He really went above and beyond to help me with my unique case.
I was charged with an OVI and violation of probation. However, I really wasn't drinking and driving. It's a long story, so to sum it up, he listened to what I had to say and fought for me.
I work in the medical field and could lose my medical license by getting in trouble with the law. He understood how detrimental this was to me and to my career.
The outcome of my case was that the OVI charge was dismissed and community service for the probation violation. I could not have asked for a better outcome!!
He cost more than other lawyers, and is worth every extra dollar. It is true that you get what you pay for!
I would highly recommend him! I'll forever be grateful for the impact he had in my life. He seemed genuine as well, and talked to me about issues in my life that led up to this incident, and gave me "fatherly" advice.
Thank you Terry for everything!!!

I was charged for an OVI in the small municipality of Oregon. I initially hired a family friend, who primarily practices criminal law. This being a 1st offense, my expectations we to be offered a lesser plea. My initial counselor was not able to convince the prosecutor to offer such plea. He suggested that we schedule a jury trial and proceed down that route. While my initial counselor bought me some time, I did a bunch of research with some other friends in the legal field. They discussed my case among themselves and met with me for details. They then referred me to Mr. Rudes. After a lengthy phone call and completing his questionnaire, he offered to represent me. Mr Rudes asked me tons of questions and provided an incredible amount of information. He shared every detail of the process and what I should expect. He also prepared me for the worst case results. We met at court a few days later and we had postpone the pretrial due to some paperwork mix-up in the court. We met again a week later at court to see if we needed a trial.
He met with the prosecutor, and whatever conversation they had, he returned with a greatly lessened plea, much reduced punishment, and managed to reduce my suspension from 1 year to 6 months. This seemed extremely unlikely but he pulled it off.
I could not be happier with Mr. Rudes. He is an honest, attentive, available, and responsive professional. He knows his craft inside and out and developed a strategy in preparation for the worst. He carries himself with confidence but not arrogance. I would hire him again without hesitation.

I endorse this lawyer. I've known Terry for years and we often travel to similar courts. Terry is a very thorough attorney and great practitioner in OVI law. He presents at numerous seminars teaching other Lawyers about OVI law. Anytime a potential client tells me they are represented by him I say with confidence that they are in "good hands."
