"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Ogomori is an excellent construction attorney. He has an excellent work ethic and professionalism. Our clients were very satisfied with his negotiation skills and the results he obtained for them. The case was concluded with a win-win situation for all parties. Ron is easy to work with and promptly returned telephone calls and emails. I would gladly work with Ron again and would recommend him for any litigation matter."

Construction and development Attorney | Feb 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I met Ron as opposing counsel in a contentious construction dispute. There was a lot of hard feelings between the parties, and Ron fought very hard, and very intelligently for his client, but he was the consummate professional and never made it personal with the lawyers, the parties or the witnesses. He also never lost sight of the "big picture" and how the dispute, as ugly as it got, may be resolved in a reasonable way."
