    Arturo is brilliant, caring, hardworking, zealous - everything you could hope for in an attorney. He fights harder for his clients than anyone I've seen because he truly cares. He is a wonderful professional who is well-respected in the legal community. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor to me.
