Craig Orent is an experienced, aggressive, passionate trial attorney who has been trying criminal cases for 28 years and is the founder of Orent Law Offices.
He takes on any case where the government has accused someone of wrongdoing. He approaches every case with the same passion and dedication whether a minor traffic ticket or capital first degree murder.
This derives from Craig’s philosophy that each person should be represented in the same way that he or a family member would want to be represented if faced with similar accusations.
He applies 100% of his energy to each and every case because it is his case, and he knows that he is representing a person.
Craig graduated from Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island in 1984 with degrees in Administration of Justice and Political Science (magna cum laude).
He was awarded top honors in Administration of Justice by the school faculty. He was also nominated by the faculty for placement in Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges (1984 ed.), and he was awarded top honors by and membership into the National Criminal Justice Honor Society.
After following his family to the West Coast, Craig attended law school at the University of San Diego School of Law.
He graduated in 1987 with various honors (American Jurisprudence Award, Civil Procedure; American Jurisprudence Award, Conflict of Laws).
