Thurman and his great team were there for me when I really needed someone on my side. I was being bullied by my wife's attorney and was completely overwhelmed. Thurman and his team stepped in and took over immediately. Everyone from Thurman on down were professional, thorough, compassionate, and all around top notch. They weren't in it to just collect a fee; they listened to what I had to say and put together a first class plan to work through my divorce. Going through a nasty divorce is an absolute horrible experience! Thurman and his team communicated and guided me through every step, staying positive and aggressive in their approach. They kept me strong and focused on the tasks; always communicating with me so I could completely understand. I honestly don't believe anyone else could have taken me through this experience as pleasantly and thoughtfully as Thurman did; it was as if we were family. His ethics and compassion for what he does are unparalleled. I've never dealt with an attorney with so much heart, yet still such vigor and determination when dealing with a case. He stood up for me when I wasn't able to stand up for myself. Great character, great ethics, great knowledge, great attorney, great guy! You won't regret having him on your side.

Since July 2009 in which a had hired another attorney that lasted only 6 months. I hired Thurman to take over this tough family law case with ex. Which my ex has lie in court repeatedly, hidden large a mount of money and now after losing to Thurman in Family Law court trial has filed BK to try and stop him from pursuing in court on the large amount of money that the ex has hidden. I all can say is Thurman will work for you to make things right.

I am very pleased with the services Mr. Arnold and his staff have provided to me. They are thorough in their work and explain the law in layman's terms. Mr. Arnold personally interviewed me and searched for all the things that might improve the outcome of my case. Things I thought that might be negative he turned into a positive. Additionally, Mr. Arnold and his staff always treat me with respect even when I ask a dumb question.

I am a Mental Health Professional and Collaborative Divorce Coach in Palm Springs, and have had the opportunity to work closely with Mr. Arnold on several divorce cases. He is intense, hardworking and has the ability to combine knowledge/experience/advocacy and compassion to the particular needs each client brings.

Mr. Thurman Arnold III,
Is absolutely an increddible attorney I was supprized at how fast Mr Arnold responded to me on the first day it was almost immediately, I have had attorney's before and never have they responded to me so quickley and with some anwsers to my questions, I could tell right away that Mr Arnold seemed to be a very educated Attorney, that I definately wanted on my side.
I like his Strong Work Ethics, which are important when hiring an attorney. I have alot to get done in my personal case and I know I made the right choice with Thurman Wesley Arnnold III as my choice of Attorney's to get the job I need done.

I received advice rather than service from Mr. Arnold so I can neither accurately rate his trustworthiness, nor his ability to apprise me of information throughout a case. However, I assume his level of engagement and honesty is very good based on the knowledge transfer and his quick response to me.

Entering legal procedings is stressful and scary. Dealing with child custody and divorce, it feels like your entire life is dangling in the hands of other people, Mr. Arnold has the legal insight to defend you. You will need an attorney that has the knowledge and experience to handle your case, Mr. Arnold is that Lawyer. Mr. Arnold knows the law, knows what and what not to do and how to do it. I had a challenging case and He handled it with perfection. I am so pleased with the outcome. I would recomend Mr. Arnold and his office to my family and friends if they ever needed legal help.

I had lost hope in the world of "attorneys / legal counsel" to help and advise with skill and knowledge for a persons best interest concerning their legal issues in need of help with. An attorney who would be honest and straight forward with integrity and a heart of true compassion. An attorney who is excited about law and the justice it can bring and who is just as passionate when justice is wrongfully denied. An attorney who listens patiently when you are all over the place with anxiety and despair or ADHD :) Well, I can honestly say today I received "legal counsel" from an Attorney!.... After my appointment for a second opinion, Hope has been restored and the energy and fight to keep going is alive it was fading. For me to give up, is just not an option. Humbly, I will continue to move forward. Thank you Mr. Arnold.... Thank you Sir! Attorney Arnold is all and more of what many people have stated about him..it is a fact!

Mr. Arnold is extremely knowledgeable and committed. He knows the ins and outs of the system: if there is a way, he will find it. I am more than happy with his help in my complicated divorce case.

Thurman is that rare attorney who promotes cooperative, non-adversarial divorce. Where many attorneys exacerbate conflict because it inevitably results in legal fees, Thurman promotes resolution and fair settlement. On his website and blog, he provides more useful information than the family law facilitator in superior court. Many divorce information websites pass on outdated or erroneous information. If an important family law case is published anywhere in the state, Thurman will analyze it and post it on his blog within days of the decision. It is not exaggeration to say that he is ahead of the curve when it comes to family law. I highly recommend his services.

I decided to go take on my child support modification case without the assistance of an attorney until 3 weeks had passed and I had more questions without answers than I began with. Then on a Saturday I caved in and wrote Mr. Arnold about my case and issues I was having with the legal procedures. To my surprise, he responded within 30 minutes that same day with a detailed 10 paragraph response answering all of my very specific questions. Mr. Arnold has since continued to offer his expertise on my seemingly never ending Family Law issues and while I wouldn't tell people not to try and handle their case alone because it can be rewarding, I would definitely recommend Thurman Arnold if you find yourself in over your head. Thanks again!

Attorney Thurman Wesley Arnold returned my phone call immediatley after I found him by way of his website www.thurmanarnold.com. I've been representing myself in the Riverside Court for Divorce and needed help writing a Request for Modification. Mr. Arnold understood I had no money to hire him, but still took the time to answer my questions and offered suggestions. He quoted California Case files for me to use and suggested wording to help me get my point across. I appreciate Attorney Arnold as a busy professional taking a few moments out to help Pro Per- Stay at Home Mom like me.
