      Mr. Orr represented me after I was involved in an accident while under the influence of prescription Ambien. To the Judge's clear annoyance, Mr. Orr was late to court on the first day of the trial. He failed to meet a clear discovery deadline which led to the exclusion of my expert witnesses. He submitted several templated motions before the trial which were ineffective and dismissed wholesale. I found him to be abrasive. He successfully preserved several issues for appeal, however.
