I had my driving privileges permanently revoked in 2006 after a 3rd offense misdemeanor DUII. Rich was extremely knowledgeable regarding the petition process, and helped guide me through the steps outlined in the statute (ORS 809.235). After 10.5 years of not having a license, yesterday I took my DMV drive test and had my Oregon driving privileges reinstated! Thanks Rich for your help and advice!

Mr. Oberdorfer helped me with a boating under the influence case in Jefferson County. It was a .003 case with a damning police report on what I allegedly said to the officer at the time of arrest. I was offered diversion, but I knew I was innocent. We took the case to trial, and with his expertise in this field, I was found not guilty. Richard fully prepared me for what to expect at trial. I have never been in this kind of trouble and Richard made a very stressful situation bearable. I don't foresee needing a lawyer again, but he would be the first I would call.

Richard Oberdorfer is the man! From day one he made me feel comfortable and optimistic about my situation. He is very experienced and would always make sure that I understood everything that was going on in my case. Communication was always prompt and thorough. I always felt completely prepared when entering the court room. Not only is he a great attorney but he is also a caring and kind man that I trust. What a great guy.

We found Richard to be a very nice and pleasant person to work with. The case was complicated, long and arduous. For the entire duration he was very persistent in paying attention to detail and in keeping us immediately informed with developments and progress.
Richard demonstrated an excellent ability to develop and implement a definite plan, but remained flexible to move in another direction as it became necessary (which it did on more than one occasion during the course of the case).
Richard's efforts led to an acquittal.
Richard's fee and terms were communicated clearly in the beginning and there were no changes despite the length of the case.
I would recommend Richard.

In reflecting on this rough year after the DUI and Diversion program, I would highly recommend Rich Oberdorfer! He (and Rob) were understanding, compassionate, knowledgeable and ON IT every time! With me being in Nashville, TN, I was afraid it'd be harder to communicate. Not at all. Every time I needed them for advice or information, they were quick to respond. And snags in the process were handled efficiently and smoothly! Plus they didn't nickel and dime me. Thanks so much to Oberdorfer Law Firm. I would highly recommend!

Richard Oberdorfer provides excellent legal support and expertise knowledge in criminal defense matters. Richard made what was an extremely stressful situation very smooth and painless. He has always been nothing but professional, sensitive to the situation, and available when I needed him, not to mention going above and beyond what was necessary (he drove me to the DMV following a suspended license issue). I would highly recommend his legal services in the future to friends/family, should the need arise for representation. Thanks again, Richard!

Back when I was in college, Volvo automobiles had a reputation for quality and safety that was unmatched. They were reliable, over-engineered, they handled well and if you ever found yourself in a tricky or dangerous driving situation or condition, you had an extra degree of security if you were in a Volvo. These days, Mercedes has a similar reputation for being an excellent and safe vehicle; but Volvos have the advantage that they give you qualityâ€¦for a much more affordable price. The automotive metaphor holds true for the legal profession as well I think: if you find yourself in a tricky or dangerous legal situation, you are lucky if you have an intelligent and experienced lawyer on your side. Rich Oberdorfer is that kind of lawyer and advocate: a consummately intelligent man who knows the law inside an out, and even better, who understands the complexities and nuances of Oregonâ€™s daunting legal system. Recently, my son, a responsible young man, found himself facing DUII charges after being arrested by an overly aggressive law officer, in spite of the fact that a subsequent breathalyzer test established that his blood alcohol level was well under the proscribed limits. But because of the complexity of our legal system, he nonetheless found himself in a difficult position. We were lucky enough to secure Richâ€™s services to represent him. Rich doesnâ€™t pull punches â€“ he gave us a thorough and thoughtful explanation and analysis and then recommended a course of action which ultimately proved successful. It was a stressful and trying time for us and our family, but Richardâ€™s clarity, articulateness, and quick and thoughtful actions ensured a good outcome. I have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending Rich Oberdorferâ€™s professional services â€“ especially if the situation or case involves a potetnial DUII charges. Heâ€™s someone we relied on and he delivered beyond our best expectations.
