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 was faced with a 4th ovi. I wreaked my car and was injured in the accident. They took blood at the hospital. It was a very hi bac. The courts waited 3 months until I was healed up before they even let me know I was going to be tried for the wreck and ovi. The tickets and court summons came in the mail. No one would take my case, but two separate attorneys recommend Mr. Rudes they said he was the best. They didn't lie!!! I never had to step before a judge or even enter a courtroom. Mr. Rudes did it all...the blood test was no match for him, it was thrown out. I walked away with less than 200 in fines and just a failure to maintain control, and no probation or license lose! I would recommend him to anyone that's in a looks like a know way out situation. He can help!!
