"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."Anonymous

"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."Sasha
