When I needed a qualified attorney to help with a difficult case, I was at a loss. There are so many attorneys to choose from in Portland and my husband and I weren't sure where to find the right person to handle our case. A friend recommended Bruce Orr at Wyse Kadish and we contacted him immediately. Our friend neglected to tell us what a great person Bruce Orr truly is, which for us made all the difference. Bruce Orr has a calm, yet warm demeanor that made dealing with an unpleasant situation manageable. Bruce's confidence, kindness and thorough grasp of the law, made us feel as if we could survive our ordeal without suffering from long term side effects. Bruce Orr is not only a thoroughly competent attorney, he is a kind human being who understands that his clientele are oftentimes frightened and unsure of how to proceed. Bruce Orr not only won our case for us, he allowed us to stay in our home and mitigated what could have been in the hands of someone else, a very painful experience. We can't say enough positive things about Bruce Orr. My husband and I recommend him highly to anyone who needs an excellent attorney in their corner.

I retained Bruce Orr in 2014 to assist me in collecting a referral fee payment due from a professional services firm. Bruce provided outstanding insight and pragmatic advice in advocating on my behalf. Bruce was responsive, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend turning to Mr. Orr if you find yourself seeking expert legal counsel for payment disputes.
