Really an amazing lawyer, I couldn't have been more blessed than to have him. He's always guided me in the correct direction. He's never fought dirty and I really appreciate that.

I have searched for an attorney for my divorce and custody issues , I went to multiple different lawyer for a consult to have some kind of feeling about them so I can trust them with this life changing important matter.
Orion got back to me for a first consult promptly and he was LISTENING to me and let me pour my heart out to him .
He was very down to earth and I really felt like he cares as a human what I am going through and definitely not for the paycheck .
I can honestly say that Orion was the best lawyer that I could find because he is passionate about what he's doing and really knowledgeable about it and he has amazing social skills and he really do care.
He'll make sure that he fights for everything what you deserve and he will call you and returns your call and he will be there for you, plus he's very patient.
I never worked ever with a lawyer and I was skeptical like everybody else ,
But I feel so blessed that I found him
Hope this will help you to make a decision

I hired Orion to do my divorce and custody hearing. Choosing him was the best decision I made. He made the process so easy, and helped me understand what was going to happen and what COULD happen. He always responded quickly to me no matter how I contacted him (email, phone, text). He would call or email me on a weekend or after hours. When I was having problems with my ex and didn't know what to do, he was always there with great advice and taught me how to document everything. I also really liked how he always had a plan A and a plan B. He would be prepared for the best and worse case scenarios.
