I have used Mr. O'Grady's services on two occasions: once in 2010 and recently in February 2015. Both times Mr. O'Grady has done an excellent job. Recently, I had a ticket for excessive speed. As I sat in the courtroom, waiting for my case to be heard, I watched the proceedings take place. The actions were like an assembly line: how do you plead, request dismissal, denied, move to trial. Over and over, those who did not have representation (other than a public pretender) were sent to the guillotine as if they were faceless sacks of meat. Fortunately for me, and a few others, I had proper representation. Mr. O'Grady had far more experience than the prosecutor and he was able to call her out on her lack of knowledge of the state law and her disorganization. He got my case reduced to a minor traffic violation (standard speeding ticket). I paid the fine and went on my way, crisis averted, and hassle left behind. Without Mr. O’Grady, I know I would have suffered the same fate as those ahead of me. Moral of the Story: Never go in without a ringer! I would recommend Mr. O’Grady’s services to anyone in need.

I was charged with DUI in Hawaii in 2012 after dropping off a family member. This was the first time this happened to me and I was worried sick. I found Kevin O'Grady's website online and contacted him to handle my case. My case was dismissed without prejudice at first, and then dismissed with prejudice just recently. As attorney Kevin explained to me, this meant that my DUI case was dismissed completely, never to be raised again. Kevin never gave up on me as well as his colleagues in his office who responded promptly to my questions and concerns. Words cannot express my gratitude to Kevin and his law office. Whenever, you get booked for DUI, contact this attorney, he is a life-saver. Thank you again Kevin. Do not worry about the fees charged - well worth it.

I faced multiple charges due to an alleged OVUII incident, and choose Kevin O'Grady to represent me after speaking with other lawyers. Mr. O'Grady was the most professional attorney I had met. His behavior and attitude were indicative of a mature, businesslike attorney and I was very impressed by his attention to detail when asking about my case even before I had agreed to hire him. During our many court appearances, Mr. O'Grady was knowledgeable of the circumstances regarding my specific case and court procedures. All aspects of my case ended favorably and I credit Mr. O'Grady's skill and diligence.
