Before I chose Craig Orent to represent me in an Order of Protection and concurring domestic violence case, I did what everyone does these days. I searched the internet and clicked on the top ranking most elaborate website that came up. That click led me to large firm in Phoenix that had an incredible web presence and top ranking Search Engine Optimization. I called them and was immediately routed to a “Closer” who convinced me that their firm was the best and that if I did not utilize their experience I would certainly be at a disadvantage. I analyzed their experience with similar matters, their attorney’s years of experience and their success rate. I was pleased, so I paid the deposit and felt like I was on my way to redemption. However, I quickly realized that I was just another cog in their machine. This was a frightening time for me and I needed a more personalized service. So I cancelled the agreement with the large firm, went back to scouring the internet, reading reviews and researching to find a “real” professional. My extensive search brought me to Craig Orent, who from the start gave me the personal service I so desperately needed. Craig did not sugar coat things, he was forthright and honest about the potential outcome of my case. But his decades of experience, honest demeanor and passion for his work convinced me to hire him. Craig took on my case with a slow-and-steady wins the race stance. At times I just wanted to get the case over with but Craig would real me back assuring me that with time, the odds of a better outcome would lean toward my favor. Craig worked extensively and seemed obsessed with winning my case. He used a strategic and unconventional approach in his methodology. He was accessible and kept communication open throughout. He knew I would not accept anything less than a full dismissal of the Order of Protection and domestic violence charges and when he could have easily worked to convince me to take a plea bargain, he continued to push forward. Extraordinarily, even though Craig had already been paid, and that no further payments were due, he took the time to communicate and follow through on his strategic plan which resulted in the full dismissal of all the charges against me. Life is full of decisions. Thank goodness I made the right one in my choice for representation. Craig’s tenacity and creative strategy won my case. He’s a caring professional who is accessible and communicates regularly. I made the right choice for representation, thank goodness.
There is no better choice you can make to protect your rights, reputation, or sanity than by electing Mr. Orent as your counsel. You, as the client, realize very quickly that even though you may know you are innocent or the charges are unfounded, your legal ramifications can be devistating without an expert at your side. Craig was the best decision I could have possibly made during the most helpless of times. He is empathetic, yet professional…thorough and methodical, yet opportunistic and persistent…understanding, yet candid. Most importantly, perhaps, he upholds the integrity of both the legal system and for his client. Obviously, one never plans on needing the professional services of a criminal defense lawyer, but without hesitation I recommend you to make the decision to lessen your burden and put them on the able shoulders of Mr. Orent.
Thank you, Craig!
Craig Orent took on my case with a professional, methodical stance and seemed obsessed with winning, which in the end he did.
His communication was extraordinary as he was accessible throughout the process. Craig never misled me and always clearly counseled me on the potential outcome of the case whether won or lost.
As the prosecutor offered plea bargains and began pushing for a quick trial, Craig fought, proclaiming that more work was to be done in the best interest of his client. He continued to push forward taking whatever time necessary to achieve a positive outcome.
The result of his tenacity was the complete dismissal of the charges brought against me.
I can’t say enough about this lawyer. He came into my life after I had hired another lawyer. Craig took over my case and made something out of nothing. I was facing a minumum prison sentence. Craig had me found not guilty by a jury trial of my peers. exonerated. All unanimously in favor of Craig’s and my case. Craig is the lawyer I suggest to anyone who needs a lawyer. I wasn’t disappointed in his work for me.
Compassionate attentive professional and one of the best attorneys you can hire in times of great need. Mr. Orent took my case last minute when I was in shambles due to a previous attorney not representing me or even doing the basics to defend me. This was terrifying and very concerning for me. Craig put my mind at ease having severe anxiety and never having dealt with the legal system before. He was above and beyond attentive and compassionate he cares about his clients and their futures and makes sure he does everything possible to explore every Avenue of Defense. I couldn’t be more grateful or thankful to him for having my case dismissed. Thank you so much for all your hard work and putting your client’s first in their greatest time of need.
Mr. Orent’s dedication and passion for his profession was very evident in my case. His knowledge, strategy, and professional matter made me very grateful for his expertise. With no prior experience with the law, I found myself in a situation that puzzled me and needed some legal advice. When I first contacted Mr. Orent he did not hesitate to take the time to review and discuss my situation. In the court room things can get stressful and emotionally draining, however he continuously provide me with guidance and the support I needed. There is no doubt I would highly recommend hiring him as I hope he can make a significant difference in others life as he has done in mine.
I came to Craig’s office due to misdemeanor charges. He always went above and beyond on both of my cases, and genuinely cared about me. He was always honest with all possible outcomes. I’ve known him for a year and a half, and he is the best, most impressive lawyer. He fought for me until the very end, and even afterwards he still was there if I needed any further guidance.I highly recommend hiring Craig Orent as your lawyer.
Craig obtained the best possible outcome for my case. He kept me updated at all times and explained in detail how he would approach the case and what to possibly expect. Craig was very easy to talk to and always treated me with respect and was never condescending. Craig’s expertise let me live my life normally throughout my case. When you talk with Craig you will plainly see that he is very passionate regarding his work, is a hard worker, is honest and up front and always has your best interests in the forefront. I would not hesitate for a second to hire him again or to recommend him.
Working with Craig was a very positive experience. Although he could never promise anything, he worked diligently to get me the best possible outcome the entire time. I feel he went above and beyond to help me. I was charged with a super extreme, and he was able to get it down to an extreme with home detention (no jail time!). To my understanding, this was the first time anyone has ever done this in the court I was assigned to. They also waived community service, alcohol classes, and a mothers against drunk driving panel. This was the best possible outcome for me. I am very grateful for his hard work and competence. He is a great lawyer!
My husband and i had a terrible fight that had escalated and the cops were called. My husband was arrested and We found ourselves in a position were we needed a lawyer to help us navigate all of this chaos. I first spoke to Craig and was very much put at ease with his knowledge and caring approach, when my husband was released he went and had a couple of consults with different lawyers who were very pessimistic and unsympathtic to the situation. I told my husband to call Craig and he was soon put to ease, Craig was truly concerned and caring for our whole situation and much more willing to fight for what was the appropriate punishment even though we had a difficult prosecutor. I am so glad I trusted my gut feeling and very pleased that Craig was who we hired during our time of chaos.
Craig was not only personable, he followed through with his promises, kept us informed of all our options was very knowledgeable and professional. He answered the phone, and returned texts promptly. It was obvious that he cared an fought for us. I’m not sure I could ever thank him enough.
This was my first ever criminal charge and had no idea how to find a credible Phoenix defense attorney. I did some research online and called 3 attorneys. Craig was the only one that took the time to listen about my charge and set proper expectations of what I should expect. He was upfront on the process and I felt like I had a attorney that gave me the red carpet treatment. Although I was hoping he could promise me the outcome of my case before hiring him, I respected that he under promised and over delivered. I could tell he was a expert in his field because he gave me his opinion of each step in my case and sure enough it happened. I really appreciated that he gave me updates on any new news the same day whether good or bad and didn’t beat around the bush or try to hide anything. In my specific case their was 3 of us charged with felony burglaryand he was able to get the charge reduced to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct. As where the other defendants weren’t so lucky. Due to Craigs hard work and resiliency I was basically given a second chance and couldn’t thank him enough. Also it was nice to know I could call or text him anytime and he always would respond back to me. Even though I’m just a middle class guy he took my case on and the importance like I was family or celebrity.
Craig did a great job at defending me. I got the outcome I hoped for. He kept me informed of the case status every step along the way and actually answered his calls himself. I hope I never need legal representation again but if I do I will call Craig Orent at The Orent Law Offices.
Mr Orent was exceptional at helping my boyfriend win his criminal speeding case in Gila Bend. He was honest, respectful, polite, and generous with his time. Plus, he charged a very fair price. He was highly recommended to us and we are so glad that we elected to work with him. Hopefully, we will never find ourselves with the need to employ his legal services again, but if that were to happen, we know exactly who we would turn to. In fact, we’ve already paid it forward and recommended him to anyone we’ve come across looking for legal traffic advice. Thank you, Mr. Orent!!
Upon arriving to my situation requiring a lawyer I had a variety of enticing choices while I researched online. What drew me to Craig was his responses to online questions regarding DUI/DWI cases. His answers were well informed unlike others who subsided to answering “in agreement with his statement.” When calling into his office I didn’t know what to expect, he was very well rated and I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to afford to have him help me, an ordinary person, boy was I wrong. Not only did he personally call me back, he was knowledgeable in responding to my questions offering legal advice over our first phone conversation. He made me feel very comfortable and informed as this was a very stressful situation for me. As a nurse and single mother I was afraid of losing my job or being placed in jail. I was able to text him with any questions and concerns at anytime and he promptly answered. He addressed the court, nursing board and MVD without my presence but informing me of the steps and process of each different account. He was able to get my case dismiss due to his findings, I could not have done it without him. I am very happy to have had such a GREAT lawyer as I never needed one I had always thought of lawyers as sneaky and untrustworthy but this is not the case with Craig. He handled my case with great care and concern and help me through the process. I highly recommend him and am very happy with the turnout of my case. His knowledge and expertise puts him in the top 10% but his understanding, caring and trustworthiness places him at #1. Thanks Craig 🙂
Craig Orent is an extremely competent attorney! What I appreciated most was the way he kept us completely informed of the possibilities. He has a quiet confidence that helps you feel better when facing a difficult situation. I definitely felt like he cared about me and my family which was really wonderful when dealing with a situation like this. There is absolutely no way you could go wrong hiring Craig Orent.
I contacted six lawyers the day after my domestic violence arrest and Craig was the first to respond personally by email and telephone, the others took several days or weeks to send a generic email or have a receptionist call. Craig was also the only one to clearly explain my situation, options and possible outcomes (including the ones that would be more work for him) during our first conversation. I felt as though the others were hoping I would be okay with pleading down, one even suggested that the court I was dealing with was too far from his office to take my case for the standard charge. Where the others didn’t see the point of fighting the charges, Mr. Orent was willing to do the work, take the time to really understand me, my family and my full situation and in the end all the charges were dismissed (yes I was actually innocent). Craig went above and beyond in every category. During the process he was in constant contact with me and when he couldn’t get back to me right away there was always a legitimate reason and an apology. I recommend him without reservation and I am very thankful of the work he did for me and my family.
Craig was extremely kind, responsive and helpful. If you need a lawyer look no further. He is extremely good and will do an incredible job, for a very fair price. By far the most responsive lawyer I have ever dealt with. I highly, highly recommend Craig!
We never thought we’d need the services of an attorney, but when we did and I spoke with Craig, I was immediately put at ease and confident that we had the right person on the line. He took as much time as I needed on that first phone call in order to answer all of my questions and concerns and was quick to return emails or calls during the entire process. We received a favorable outcome and would never have been able to manage the court system / process/ etc. without him.
Communicates well. It was clear he understood what I was trying to achieve. And he responded with clear description of my options. I felt well supported.
I would highly recommend Craig Orent if you are looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable attorney who truly cares about your case and you. He kept me updated on all the details that were going on during my case and provided me with all the documents as he received them. One thing that I really appreciated was how available he was. He would always get back to me quickly and was so easy to reach via phone, text or email. Another thing that I really appreciated was how caring he was. He allowed me to leave the case in his hands and took away much of the worry. When the case was over, it had been dismissed, he was the first to send the kindest email letting me know the outcome and celebrated with me. If you are looking for an attorney who goes the extra mile for his clients, Mr. Orent is your attorney.
I recently needed an attorney to represent my son in a criminal traffic matter. From the very first meeting I had with Mr. Orent, I knew that I was in the presence of a true professional. I can say that I have never seen an attorney care so much in every sense. I have never seen an attorney conduct his professional duties with such excellent standards. I was confident from my first meeting that Mr. Orent would obtain the best resolution on behalf of my son. I knew that he would be zealous in his representation (and he was). I knew that he would be ethical and that his extensive experience would ensure that justice would be served. I was very grateful that Mr. Orent took the time to keep us informed of our process every step of the way. I never had to contact him, for he always communicated with us (truly unusual, but exceptional). Because he was always “watchful” and engaged, and treated our case as though it was the “most important case”, he was able to obtain the best outcome for us! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a criminal attorney. He is truly “the very best”. Thank you Mr. Orent!
I have used Craig in two Criminal matters, one for my son and one for my sister. Before using him I asked several other attorney’s that I know their opinion and they said that he is highly respected and is if not the best is among the best criminal attorneys in town. He was very professional and knows the law very well. I hope to never need his services personally but if I were to ever get into legal issues I would not look any further than Craig.
Definitely the calm to my storm. After some unexpected out of state legal issues, I searched for the highest rated lawyer online and quickly found Craig. I was not disappointed. He helped me navigate through the various issues, kept me well informed, and always took time to explain everything that was transpiring. He did not hesitate to take my case despite the ‘uniqueness’ of the situation (charges were quite old). He was straightforward and honest which did a great deal to help calm the anxiety and garner my trust. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly. My situation was dealt with swiftly, discreetly, and completely and for that follow through I am grateful.
I’ve never had the blessing of hiring an attorney who responded more to my questions and concerns than Craig Orent. He worked hard on my behalf and my case was completely dismissed. His only downside? He can’t represent me wherever I go…I could really use him now in another state. Professional, sharp, and friendly. I highly recommend Craig Orent no matter the nature of your charge.
I’m from out-of-town and never experienced the joy of photo radar speeding tickets. I called Craig for advice and he not only freely offered me the benefit of his knowledge in a lengthy conversation, but actually placed some calls to find out specific information regarding my case, which turned out favorably. So while I didn’t need to hire him, I can vouch for his openness, willingness to help, and copious knowledge in the area of photo radar speeding tickets, which is constantly evolving because of their tenuous legality.
I contacted Mr. Orent regarding a recent situation to see if he could assist me. He answered all of my questions within limitations that helped me make an informed decision. He took a few moments, answered honestly, and did this out of courtesy. I would definitely hire him if I needed his services! Very professional, caring, considerate and honest!
Attorney Craig S Orent, was very very effective always kept me informed with the known facts. A real Responsible person that you can tell his good and loves what we does for a living wich is helping human beings out. His knowledge and many years of experience plays a big part in the case and he knows how to use it to his advantage. Also a Trustworthy person that i highly recommend. 10 thumbs up no complaints!!!
Craig is the most compassionate attorney I have ever met. He spends plenty of time on making sure you are ok through the process.
I hired Mr Orent on a personal matter while visiting the Phoenix area…Reviewed his website and felt very confident he was the right attorney for me. It turned out Mr. Orent was first, very upfront about my case, did not paint a rosey picture and secondly very honest about the outcome. But due to Mr. Orent’s 25 years of experience/knowledge all went well and I would recommend him to anyone for any type of case. Thanks for all your hard work, time and professionalism.
Craig was an amazing lawyer!!! I was charged with public urination in Scottsdale, Arizona, and he got me the best results I could have asked for. He was very dedicated to my case and definitely went out of his way to get the desired results. I am so glad that I hired him as my lawyer because public urination is not usually a case that gets dismissed in the Scottsdale courts. I would recommend him for sure!
Very professional and on top of all issues! Treated me with respect and I perceived him as a friend helping to take care of a very difficult situation! I would recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance
I was referred to Craig by a trusted family friend to represent my son in two separate criminal cases. Our case was unusual and required an attorney with exceptional abilities. I knew he was the right man for the job because he explained everything to us, each step of the way, and kept us calm through this difficult time. His knowledge and persistence led to both cases being dismissed! I have recommended Craig to others and they have also expressed their appreciation for his services.
I have never been in trouble with the law before. I reached out to Craig after work hours as he was a reference from a family friend. He took time away from his family to calm me down and explain the process. I met with him the next day and he got started. The whole process was very stressful for me but Craig was very understanding and always there to calm me down. Long Story short, we got a very favorable outcome and the charge got dropped off my record.
We would absolutely recommend Craig. Craig’s communication and legal skills are unsurpassed. He was a calm and reassuring presence during a stressful time when our child faced minor in possession of alcohol and consumption charges in two separate incidents in one day. This was complicated by the fact that we do not live in AZ. The results of both cases were better than we ever hoped for and our child can now finish college and begin adult life without a record.
Honest, straightforward; was always there for me; kept me informed of all case activity; and got me great results. Charged with a firearms offense. My co-defendant plead guilty to a felony and got prison. My public defender wanted me to do the same thing. I was referred to Craig. He investigated the case completely, and later convinced the prosecutor to give me a misdemeanor which also saved me from losing my professional license etc.
I have nothing but good things to say about Mr. Orent. He knows his stuff and will do whatever it takes. I had a criminal case in city court and got reduced to a civil fine. I’m glad Mr. Orent is now in private practice. Thank you !
Craig handled a criminal traffic offense for me and got it knocked down to a non-criminal offense. He is also there for me whenever I need him. He gives great advice and really knows the law and knows how to handle things.
Looking for a Criminal Defense Attorney can be a task in itself; there are many out there with good reputations (some not so good) that choosing one can be difficult. As I was looking for an attorney to represent me, it became apparent that I wanted someone who was upfront about the situation and possible outcomes. I like a straight shooter, when it’s your future on the line, you want an honest assessment, and Mr. Orent did a great job with handling my case. It was apparent that he genuinely cared about my situation (in which EVERY attorney should), took the time to discuss the details, and outlined his thoughts. He takes an aggressive stance on his clients behalf, which is something I believe is attained through both his professional experience and personality. The several times I was in court with Craig, you could tell that he was in his element; he knew his way around the court room so-to-speak, and would not allow us to be bullied by the prosecution or judge by remaining respectfully firm. He was thorough with my “discovery”, and was able to find weakness in the prosecution that I would not, and perhaps a less experienced attorney would find. In the end, we were able to get a very favorable plea deal, so I feel that Mr. Orent surpassed our expectations and I’m very grateful for his services!
Craig, is amazing in court. He represented a family member and proved that he knows his way around a courtroom. He is so attentive to the details of a trial and picks up on every nuance which gives him a huge advantage over other attorneys. If there is a loophole or technical issue with the case you can be sure that Craig will find it.
Where the others didn’t see the point of fighting the charges, Mr. Orent was willing to do the work, take the time to really understand me, my family and my full situation and in the end all the charges were dismissed (yes I was actually innocent). Craig went above and beyond in every category.
“Excellent lawyer, who rescued me. Highly recommend to anyone facing criminal charges.”
He handled my case with great care and concern and helped me through the process. I highly recommend him and am very happy with the turnout of my case. His knowledge and expertise puts him in the top 10% but his understanding, caring and trustworthiness places him at #1.
Craig Orent is straight out of a Frank Capra film. He’s a can-do lawyer with a heart of gold and a keen sense for justice. Craig stood up and believed in us when no one else would. Before we even hired him, he gave us true, relevant, and straightforward information and advice. And when we did hire him, he worked tirelessly (even calling us from his vacation!), efficiently, and communicatively. He was never unreachable; in fact, he has remained available to offer advice regarding any remaining residual circumstances from our case. He came to our home and calmed us during the scariest part of our case, reassuring us without ever giving us a false expectations. This guy believes in justice; he has an assertive yet refined and patient demeanor, which means he gets results from police officers and prosecutors when no one else can. This is a good man and a good lawyer who knows the nuances of the legal system (believe me, many lawyers don’t). There’s not anyone I would trust more in a tight spot than Craig Orent.
“Highly recommend to anyone needing help; Honest, straight forward, made it easy for me to go through a difficult time.”
Craig was aggressive and determined, always on top of things. He had my future in his hands and not once did he give up on my case.
From the very first meeting I had with Mr. Orent, I knew that I was in the presence of a true professional. I can say that I have never seen an attorney care so much in every sense. I have never seen an attorney conduct his professional duties with such excellent standards. I was confident from my first meeting that Mr. Orent would obtain the best resolution on behalf of my son. I knew that he would be zealous in his representation (and he was). I knew that he would be ethical and that his extensive experience would ensure that justice would be served. I was very grateful that Mr. Orent took the time to keep us informed of our process every step of the way. I never had to contact him, he always communicated with us (truly unusual, but exceptional). Because he was always “watchful” and engaged, and treated our case as though it was the “most important case”, he was able to obtain the best outcome for us!
