I WAS A FORMER CLIENT IN 2006-2007. WITH HIS INEFFECTIVENESS OF COUNSEL, I WAS SENTENCED TO 11-YEARS IN A COLORADO PRISON FOR A CREDIT CARD THEFT OF ONLY $1000.00. THE CASE NO. IS 06CR62. I JUST WON A 35(c) POST-CONVICTION MOTION AGAINST MR. ARNOLD MORDKIN IN THE 9TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT WITH JUDGE JAMES BOYD PRESIDING ON AN INEFFECTIVENESS-OF-COUNSEL CLAIM. I GOT OUT OF PRISON 2-WEEKS AGO AND HE HELPED ME WASTE EIGHT YEARS OF MY LIFE. THE JUDGE RULED OVERWHELMINGLY ON JANUARY 6TH, 2015 THAT ATTORNEY ARNOLD MORDKIN WAS INDEED INEFFECTIVE THRU A BLATANT DISREGARD OF ETHICS AND A CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST. HE RECOMMENDED THAT I GO TO TRIAL INSTEAD OF TAKING A PLEA AGREEMENT OF LESS THAT HALF OF THE TIME THAT I RECEIVED. ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IS PUBLIC RECORD IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FUTHER INVESTIGATE AND VALIDATE. HE DID NO INVESTIGATION WHATSOVER ON MY CASE AND NEVER EVEN CALLED ONE SINGLE WITNESS AT MY TRIAL IN APRIL 11TH, 2007. THERE WAS A MAJOR CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST THAT WAS DISCOVERED BY MY APPELLATE ATTORNEY AND GOT 6-YEARS TAKEN OFF OF MY PRISON SENTENCE AND HAD ME RELEASED. MR. MORDKIN REPRESENTED ANOTHER CLIENT WHO WAS A DRUG DEALER IN ASPEN AND GOT HIM PROBATION 3-MONTHS BEFORE MY TRIAL , WHERE THIS EXACT SAME CLIENT OF HIS TESTIFIED AGAINST ME AT MY TRIAL. JUDGE BOYD STATED THAT ATTORNEY MORDKIN SHOULD HAVE INFORMED ME OF THE CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST AND WITHDRAWN HIS REPRESENTATION OF ME. I AM NOW PROCEEDING WITH A FORMAL COMPLAINT WITH THE COLORADO SUPREME COURT ATTORNEY REGULATORY COUNSEL IN DENVER, COLORADO.
SINCERELY , J. KEY

I worked with Arnie on an issue that presented many road blocks. Arnie was not deterred and showed great dexterity in overcoming and resolving the issues. He was forthcoming in his assessment and exceeded my expectations in the end. I would say Arnie is a valuable resource and would highly recommend his services.
Mr. Mordkin was totally effective in negotiating on my behalf regarding a difficult business matter. His dealings were straight forward, honest and to the point. He was a tough advocate for me while simultaneously making sure that I understood my responsibilities in the matter.
My lawyer was very supportive and very active during our time together. He understood my situation and responded as quickly as he could. He allowed me to call him anytime for advice and i was very appreciative of it. I would recommend him to anyone!! Arnold was very personal and let me know about every detail that i asked for, and those i didn't. He surprised me with his knowledge and his will to fight for every little thing i asked. Thanks Arnie!!!
