Richard is the fourth lawyer that I've had the opportunity to work with, and is by far the best of them all. He was supportive, kind, and a very competent attorney. I was facing multiple felony charges and prison time, and Richard was able to get all the charges dismissed. Throughout my case, I remained confident in his legal abilities, and I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone facing a criminal charge in Oregon.

I was arrested for a first-time DUII offense and hired Richard's firm to defend me. Richard became my primary representative as a result of his specialty in criminal defense. I was facing a DUII charge, a reckless driving charge, a one-year driving suspension for failure to submit to a breathalyser, a $300 citation for driving without headlights, and a $650 citation for failure to submit to a breathalyser.
All the above elements have recently been resolved and the result is simply that I have entered Diversion on the DUII charge. Yes, that's it. The reckless driving charge was dismissed, the driving suspension proposal was dismissed, the headlights citation was dismissed, and the failure to blow citation was dismissed. Richard was very willing to take my case to trial but I decided to accept the assured outcome of Diversion.
Thanks to Richard's efforts, I continue to be able to drive -- a privilege I certainly took for granted until I thought it would be gone. I saved almost $1,000 in citation fees because of his skills. When I consider where I might be without his professional assistance, it's very clear to me the value of a talented lawyer in this situation.
Finally, Richard is a personable and empathetic individual who made me feel comfortable in the midst of an embarrassing situation. I never thought I'd be arrested and in need of counsel. I felt anonymous and ashamed after 12 hours in jail and numerous court proceedings in front of authorities. I've been deeply thankful to have a both knowledgeable and understanding attorney in Richard.

For a little background, I was arrested for a DUI after the police had been called by a drunk and irrational ex-girlfriend, and after I had a few drinks. I retained Richard McBreen for my defense as he came highly recommended by another lawyer I had spoke with. To make a long story short, DUI's are extraordinarily difficult to win, but, due to an equally extraordinary defense, I was able to get acquitted at my trial. Throughout the case Richard had been very informative, honest and easy to get in contact with. He helped me to retain a free private investigator and free testing that was beneficial to the case; this saved me thousands of dollars. I am pleased to write this review and would strongly endorse retaining Richard McBreen for your defense.

Mr. McBreen took my case to trial where I was acquitted on one count and the other two counts were dropped based on a motion we filed.

Richard Mcbreen is a great lawyer. When I showed him my charges he opened up the law book and immediately went right to work for me. I was always kept in the loop, and it seemed like we were always a couple steps ahead of the district atourney, and his dirt tricks. Richard was very cool and collected during trial. I was very impressed in how he guided me through this ordeal, and even more impressed when he won this case for me . I highly recommend Richard Mcbreen to assist you in any legal matters. You will be glad you did. I sure am.

Richard is a very capable lawyer. I am very impressed with his pro-bono work, defending the Occupy Portland protesters. He is one of the driving forces behind getting these folks their constitutionally guaranteed jury trials. The amount of analysis and work that went into that process is impressive. I would have no reservations about him handling a criminal matter.

I cannot sing enough praise for this lawyer. Being an attorney isn't just about knowledge, though his knowledge of the law is vast. It is also about skill in the courtroom, management of cases and case loads, client care, vigilance in one's watchcare over the community and the powers that be and many things more. What separates the average attorney from the great one's is the ability to do all these things well. If that is the case, your search for a great attorney is over. Richard is that great attorney. If you want the whole package, give him a call.
