  • Robert James Doig

    I endorse Arthur Porter for any type of litigation matter - but most specifically in the Family Law realm. Arthur and I have opposed each other in trials in the past and, though he zealously represented his clients, he was always a gentleman. I would not hesitate to refer family members or close friends to Arthur - in fact, I have!

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in CO, 1999


    Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Arthur’s comment: “I have been aggressively representing clients for 30 years. This case, from the mid 90's, involved a claim by my client against his former attorney. The matter was admittedly mismanaged by me and my client suffered as a result. Fees were refunded. This punishment was accepted. I am not one to make excuses, or to shirk responsibility. Integrity matters.”
