Great Divorce Attorney
Tom was my attorney for my recent divorce. He was great and his staff was very understanding and helpful. He is very knowledgeable and agressive with regard to family law and made the whole process much less intimidating and less painful. I would recommend Tom to anyone in need of a good family law attorney.

Excellent divorce attorney
When my life was suddenly turned upside-down, it was suggested to me to visit with Tom Orr. While offering me sound advice, Tom was able to negotiate a favorable settlement (which included getting my beloved dog back!) and successfully cut all ties with my ex. Tom's compassion and actions helped me through one of the toughest events in my life and I certainly suggest you consider him during yours.

Home in time for the Holidays
I highly recommend Thomas C Orr Law Offices! This guy and his legal secretary's were on top of their game. They got my case handled as soon as possible and gave me timely updates thru their My Case website. Having an ex-girlfriend legally removed from your own home can be a long legal process. Tom and his team made short work of what could have dragged out at least another month or two. If it wasn't for them, I would not have spent Thanksgiving at home this year. Thank you Tom for getting me back in the home that I own.

Best and Most honest Lawyer
Mr Tom Orr was referred to me, we had our consultation and he did not hesitate to want to get started on my case. I was impressed from day 1, he works nights/weekends to make sure everything for my case was top notch. Tom is very compassionate when working on a case, and works very hard for his client. Tom was financially reasonable for us to afford, thorough and an honest lawyer.

Knowledgable, Professional, Personable,
I have worked with Tom for many years. He represents our company in property management disputes. In every case he has been fully prepared, professional with the clients on the other side of the transaction, provided honesty with the case at hand in regards to our odds of prevailing, clarity on tenant landlord laws when they were questioned by us, and although the relationship is a professional business relationship... he is very kind, considerate and relate-able as a person. He is also very clear about his expenses. He provides thorough documentation of all time put into each task on the case, so there is never any confusion or misunderstanding of the expenses. I can't imagine working with anyone else in Missoula, or Montana for that matter, on property management disputes. I refer all private landlords to Tom when they are having tenant issues, and have always heard great things back from the referrals.

Great job!
Tom did a great job for us. It was a very frustrating case, dealing with an unscrupulous lawyer who used delays and games to defend his client. He was to the point and right on top of things in court. I told him if I start a life of crime, I want him on my side.

Fraudulent tenants taken to task!
Mr Orr was professional and understanding. He was highly recommended by a professional management company. I had the misfortune to have 'Scam Artist Tenants " take me for a ride. Mr Orr had knowledge of their game and we had our day in court.They were found guilty! Sad ,but I ended up testifying for another landlord , whom had hired Mr Orr , was scammed also by the same couple. Again they were found guilty! Tom Orr knows landlord/ tenant law very well. I recommend this office highly.
