Preventing Being Charged with DUI in Colorado

Key advice for avoiding DUI charges in the first place

At The Orr Law Firm, we understand that sometimes situations arise or mistakes are made that have regrettable results. Further, we are dedicated to truly comprehensive guidance, going beyond providing solely legal advice to help you with the issues that led to your DUI charge in the first place. In fact, the Valley Hope Association has recognized Attorney Rhidian Orr for his commitment to assisting individuals with substance abuse problems. When you need a knowledgeable, experienced and caring DUI defense lawyer in Denver, you can place your trust in our firm.
