    Steve Arnold did an excellent job in successfully representing me during my divorce proceedings, which included a very emotional and bitter custody battle. Steve was prepared every step of the way. He was not only my advocate, but also an advocate for my young son. Steve stayed on top of things and kept me informed throughout the process. Steve's understanding of people was most impressive. I feel this quality helped him to keep me on course and prepare me for a very emotional trial.

    Steve Arnold represented me in a very bitter and contested divorce. His training, experience, perspective and compassionate judgment were critical in successfully litigating the divorce. I found Mr. Arnold or his staff available when needed, supportive and diligent. My legal costs were reasonable given the quality of representation, and the billing was always meticulously documented. Mr. Arnold came highly recommended and I would retain him again if I required legal assistance.

    I just don't know what I would have done without him as my attorney! I actually learned all about how my accounting worked for one thing and realized Steve truly wants people to be treated fairly as citizens in our community. He is passionate about what is right and will fight for that!! He will not step to the side and let a wrongful behavior go by!! He looked out for my best interest and looked ahead for me when I could not. He is my HERO!!

    I had no children with my X-husband and we had separate checking accounts. The divorce should have been simple. Mr. Arnold prolonged it for about 2 years. He was unresponsive, arrogant, hard to reach, & once came late to court. After spending about $30 K, and no progress, I fired him. He delayed giving me my file. When he gave me the file, it was a mess. The new attorney was honest and respectful to me. Moreover he finished my divorce in a few weeks and cost me only $5000.
