Place & Arnold handled the will and estate for my grandmother under direction of my uncle (her son). Unfortunately my uncle's desire was to prevent an update to grandmother's will that would reduce his portion of the inheritance, and Place & Arnold assisted this by delaying the execution of the updated will. Upon her death, Place & Arnold sent out forms to be signed by various family members that effectively agreed to relinquish any rights we had in the manner, they gave inaccurate advice regarding New York State law around family rights (verified by my own attorney) and even resorted to attempts towards intimidation when we were reluctant to sign such documents.
Be very cautious when dealing with Place & Arnold; they have demonstrated questionable ethics.
As I am moving through the divorce process, I have found my experience with Robert Place to be nothing but positive. His knowledge and approachability are his assets. He has a "keep it real" attitude that has helped me stay focused on what's really important. He reminds me not to sweat the small stuff and keep the big picture in mind.
