Michael helped my husband's child custody/support case and was always informative and professional. As numerous problems arose he continually provided us with the facts and helped us with presenting the best case possible. I was impressed with his honesty and trusted his opinions. He exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone looking for a great attorney.

Mr. Peterson exceeded my expectations and I prevailed in my case. I found him to be realistic, above board, highly intelligent, and he really seems to care about his clients. Additionally, he has a very good reputation and I can't help but believe this matters a great deal when representing a client before the courts. I highly recommend him and the Law Office of Thurman Arnold. Once you walk through the door you will know you are in very good hands.

Mike Peterson will fight for you with knowledge, assertiveness and compassion. While he knows the law cut and dry, he also knows the emotions that both sides come needing legal services. You will not feel alone in your battle! For me, he quickly researched detailed and obscure case law related to a very complex family law matter. He found vital points that other lawyers had missed and he helped me put forth the strongest case possible for me and my children. It is rare to find this combination of people skills, thoroughness and knowledge of law. I am grateful that he is on my side!

Our attorney of choice is Mr. Michael Peterson. We have relied on the advise and representation of Mr. Peterson a few times over in the past five years for various reasons. His knowledge of the law in the areas he practices is outstanding. He is direct and precise, combined with compassion and commitment to his clients. One conversation and you'll have a sense of complete relief because you know you are in good hands. We have had previous attorneys in past years, but honestly, Mr. Peterson is superior in intelligence and commitment. My husband and I highly recommend Mr. Peterson as your attorney.

I was fortunate to find Attorney Peterson at a moment of absolute crisis. He spoke with me at length on the phone regarding my case and was so knowledgeable about minute aspects of the law that I knew I wanted to have him represent me. He made time to meet with me immediately, and discussed the case in detail. From that first meeting through the date of the court appearance, one month later, he responded immediately to any questions or concerns that I had, and kept me updated about the progress of the case. I truly felt that we were working together and I was confident that he would represent me to the absolute best of his ability. I was not disappointed when we appeared at court. He was very professional, throughout, fair and level-minded, and I was extremely impressed with his demeanor in the court. Suffice it to say, Atty. Peterson's diligent preparation enabled me to win the case. As a side note, I must also give praise to the excellent support staff at his office.

Mr. Peterson assisted me with my child custody case and negotiated a fair settlement for both parties. The Judge presiding over the case actually thanked Mr. Peterson in court for his timely filing and organizing of all required paperwork for my case. He also works for one of the most respected lawyers in the Coachella Valley, Mr. Thurman W. Arnold. I have no doubt that if Mr. Peterson keeps up his good work he will someday be as respected as Mr. Arnold himself.
