We are so happy that we hired Jason Short to represent our son. Jason was able to get our son's charges dropped and was competent, caring, knowledgeable, skilled and well-liked/respected by the DA, the arresting officer and the DMV administrative judge. We are grateful to our friend who recommended Jason Short and we are grateful to Mr. Short for taking our case and working hard and effectively on our behalf.
I hired John Gilroy to represent me in a DUI case involving another vehicle and numerous people involved. I am so glad I did. From the start, he was honest about the seriousness of the charges and possible repercussions, while in the same breath, confident and compassionate. The outcome of my case was more than I could have hoped for, and I am so grateful for his expertise and positive attitude.
The time in my life when I needed to hire an Attorney was terrifying. I am so greatful I found Jeff Napoli. He made a horrible experience much better than it would have been had I hired any other Attorney. He was very caring about my situation, and fearless when it came to defending me. Thank you Jeff!!
I highly recommend Alycia Herriot and the Gilroy, Napoli and Short law firm. They are all exceptional lawyers that handle themselves with the upmost integrity.
It is with much gratitude that I recommend John Gilroy as your lawyer if you are being charged with a DUI or any similar offense in Oregon. The outcome of my case was "best-case scenario" and I have John to thank for that. He knows what he is doing and the experience shows. I was able to maintain my license through the whole court process, which saved me a ton of stress and allowed me to continue working without any impediments due to driving restrictions. John knows the ins and outs of law in Oregon and was always available to answer any question I had about my case.
These people are great. Best possible outcome of my situation. I couldn’t be happier. So easy to work with. Unlike any other lawyers I’ve worked with In the past- They listen and care about your feelings and the best part is they get the job done!
If I could give them 6 stars, I would! I hired John Gilroy to represent me on a complex DUI case with charges in two separate counties. He did a fantastic job, and the outcome couldn't have been better.
I hired Jason Short to represent me and it was the best decision I've ever made. He is professional and very knowledgeable considering that he was a former DA. I strongly recommend Jason. You will not be disappointed.
