Jim represented me in a personal injury, car accident case. I was rear-ended by someone who was not paying attention and sustained major neck, shoulder and back injuries. He was able to fight the insurance company and I was able to recover a very large amount which allowed me to pay all my bills and set aside enough that will enable me to have a comfortable retirement. This guy is the best. He returns calls, is on top of his cases, and is always willing to fight hard for his clients.

Jim has helped me with my divorce and several other cases including one criminal case in which he got all charges dropped. I am a free man today because of Jim's great knowledge of the law and ability to battle in the courtroom. He is the best around! You get in trouble you call Jim!

Mr. Oronoz generously helped me in my time of need. He was very considerate and caring. I felt that I could trust him to protect my interests while maintaining the highest forms of professionalism and integrity. He was always very honest with me, which I greatly appreciated. I knew all of the possible outcomes that I could face, and Mr. Oronoz openly gave me the best advice so I could make the most educated decisions in my cases. I am grateful that I had Mr. Oronoz on my side.

I had two criminal charges which I felt were about to destroy my entire life. I couldn't sleep. My anxiety was terrible. I constantly worried about my cases. Going to Jim Oronoz and hiring him as my lawyer was a decision that turned my life around. Jim's the best! He found defenses to each of the charges that I was facing and kept me out of jail. I was very happy with the outcome that Jim achieved. I highly recommend anyone needing a great lawyer in Las Vegas to hire Jim Oronoz.

Over the course of the last half decade or so, Mr. Oronoz has gone out of his way to personally help me and anyone that I have sent to him. He is diligent, extremely educated, very experienced in the courtroom and has a way of putting you at ease when having a meeting - even when regarding very serious cases. He goes out of his way to do what's right for you and has an enormous amount of perspicacity in the courtroom. I would highly recommend Mr. Oronoz for just about any legal situation that could come up.

I work in the same office building as Jim. Anytime I have a question related to criminal defense or criminal procedure, I turn to him for advice. He continually demonstrates a wealth of knowledge on criminal matters, and I endorse him as a criminal defense attorney.
