Really nice guy and works hard
I was completely completely comfortable with Okorie handling my wife's sexual harassment matter, which was very traumatic to say the least. He turned out to be very caring and worked very hard on the case.

Intelligent and Tenacious
I am a retired forensic scientist for the California Department of Justice. I first met Mr. Okorocha as an opposition witness in court. He was very good, intelligent, professional and likable as a witness. I respected he and his testimony so much that I ultimately hired him as an attorney for me. He did an amazing job representing me and I highly recommend him to others.

OKORIE OKOROCHA IS AN EXCELLENT ATTORNEY AND EXPERT WITNESS IN FORENSIC TOXICOLOGY
I am a former prosecutor who became a criminal and DUI defense attorney and I have both felony and misdemeanor trial experience. I have prosecuted and defended some very challenging cases. When I have one that requires the best forensic toxicologist, OKORIE OKOROCHA, always comes first to my mind. I frequently recommend him to my fellow defense attorneys. It is well known in our community of professionals that Okorie is among the best, if not THE BEST, expert witness in DUI and other kinds of cases that requires the testimony of a forensic toxicologist. I know of no one else who comes close to the excellent service Okorie provides. Moreover, because he is a fellow attorney, I even run my most challenging cases by him because that is commonly done in our profession among peers who respect each other's abilities to defend our clients in criminal cases.

Second to None in Forensic Expertise
Mr. Okorocha is my forensic expert of choice because he tirelessly keeps up on the evolution of forensic subjects and insightfully understands their historical beginnings, and because as an attorney he understands how best to present such expertise to assist a jury to understand the truths about science, in contrast to the falsehoods engendered by their own popular misunderstandings and created by misrepresentations of government witnesses. I recommend him as a forensic expert without reservation and would give him 6 stars if the system permitted.

Review of services
Okorie is an extremely Respectful and knowledgable attorney. He always kept me informed of the status of my case and made me feel as if I had someone in my corner. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice. He not only handled my case quickly but allowed me to be hands on and helped guide me in making important decisions. His fees are fair and negotiable and he is willing to fight for his clients to get the best possible outcome.

A Lawyer who finally gets it!
Okorie is the only lawyer that I consulted with who "CONNECTED" with me and empathized with my situation where other attorneys treated my case like another number, another case. He put his heart and soul in it from the inital consultation and made me feel the comort and ease that my case was in the best hands. Upon interviewing other lawyers, I reverted right back to Okorie without hesitation. He will roll up his sleeves and do what needs to be done to fight for you and persevere. My case is still pending but I am confident based on a personal reference (a previous client) and my own discernment that he is the best of the best and will prevail with the best outcome for my case. I will keep everyone posted. I am up against a third DUI. On a side note, he does communicate very well and thus far, has kept me informed and in the loop with things. He doesnt make himself to be superior to you but on the flip side, is side by side going through it all with you. He is someone I strongly recommend!

Response from Okorie Okorocha October 25, 2011
TIPS ON CHOOSING A LAWYER. Lawyers with 100 PERFECT REVIEWS and not a single unhappy client is using a service that posts FAKE REVIEWS. No one who only represents CRIMINALS always has 100% satisfied clients. Even Michael Jordan misses shots. Anyone who CLAIMS that they KNOW JUDGES, and PROSECUTORS and can get this and that done is DOING SOMETHING ILLEGAL. No LAWYER is allowed to SAY that THEY HAVE FRIENDS who cut them underhanded deals. Ask the other lawyers: 1. How many DUI Jury Trials have you done in 2011? Are you just a plea bargainer? I have done 20 plus. 2. Are you a specialist member of the California DUI Lawyers Assoc.? I am 3. Are you Nationally Board Certified in Criminal Trial Law? I am 4. Do you testify as an expert witness in DUI Forensic Science for other Lawyers? I do.

DUI Case
Okorie got me a better plea bargain than anyone thought possible and it seemed effortless on his part. My DUI ( .11 ) was dropped to a reckless and all fines were waived.
Posted by Kara | September 25, 2011
Excellent Attorney
I hired Okorie to help me with a restraining order. My previous attorney, supposedly the best in San Diego "didn't do restraining orders" were his exact words. I was mortified as this was friday and my trial was on Monday. Okorie was able to get someone over the WEEKEND to appear in court for me on monday morning. After taking over my case he was able to get my restraining order removed, which is very difficult. I live in a very small neighborhood and the person that had the order lives on block away from me. If I had a restraining order for 5 years it would have made my life hell. Okorie gave me my freedom back.
