I live in Northern California and I recently hired Thurman Arnold III as a "Second Opinion Lawyer" for my long drawn out divorce case, and particularly for my upcoming hearing on modification of spousal support. While I have previously had three other attorneys, I could not find competent legal help from anyone for my latest legal issue in my Family Law matter. That is, until I conferred with Mr. Arnold. Mr. Arnold is not only an expert in the field of Family Law, but also courteous and compassionate. I received answers that I had never received before from my other attorneys. I found Mr. Arnold's website while searching the internet for legal help and had one of those gut feelings that he was the "real deal." I was correct! Mr. Arnold's website has a wealth of information regarding Family Law which is very helpful for those who have not had luck with former attorneys or those people that are representing themselves, particularly for complex situations. In addition, Mr. Arnold performed extra work for me, at NO charge showing his dedication to his profession. It is obvious that he is experienced and wants to help people. He is an honor to the legal profession! I urge anyone that is looking for a competent, knowledgeable and experienced attorney to consider hiring Mr. Arnold and read his reviews here at Avvo. I am sure you will see the same that I did. I am so very glad I found Mr. Arnold and I now feel I can move forward with my case with the legalese and expertise Mr. Arnold gave to me. I can't say enough wonderful things about this great attorney! I only wish I had found him a few years ago, but am so very glad that I found him now to help me with my case. Thank you Thurman Arnold!

As a young and now an old family law attorney, Mr. Arnold is my go to on getting the concise and up to date "low down" on developing family law issues. I am so grateful for his generosity in reaching thousands of practitioners and lay people in his selfless efforts to simplify and streamline the practice and participation in family law litigation. Thank you Mr. Arnold!!

Mr. Arnold and Mr. Peterson were very sympathetic to my situation. They kept me informed at every corner. They gave me options and advice with my interest in mind. They were very punctual and thorough with court filings and proceedings. We were able to settle out of court. Anybody looking to resolve a sticky situation should call Mr. Arnold III's office.

Thurman Arnold represented me in my prior divorce. He did an incredible job at representing me and I was more than pleased with the outcome. I had met with several other attorneys prior to retaining him and was told basically I would be paying much more than I expected in the settlement. Mr Arnold assured me he would do everything in his power to help and that he did. Saving me a great deal of money. He was always there to take my calls and when he was not his staff was very polite and helpfull. Mr Arnold would also return phone calls after hours. Divorce can be a horrible thing to go through, Mr Arnold made it so much easier. So I recently seeked him out on my recent divorce. I live in Nevada but he was able to help me quickly serve my wife in Calif. before she was able to serve me. The same day the case was filed she was served by his office within 2 hours. I couldn't be more grateful to him and his staff for all there help. Owning busnesses in the Palm springs area and living there for over 17 years I would highly recommend Thurman Arnold for your Family Law needs.

This is a long overdue review of Mr. Arnold and his team. Like a lot of same-sex couples looking to dissolve a long-term domestic partnership, I was shocked and overwhelmed by the vastly complicated and rapidly changing laws regarding California same-sex domestic partnerships/marriage laws. After meeting with several attorneys throughout Southern California, there was no doubt in my mind that Mr. Arnold was not only the most literate and up-to-date with current laws, he truly is an advocate for those who may have been mistreated and do not have the same level of resources as their ex's.
Mr. Arnold was amazing at explaining the process each step of the way and offered me options for proceeding with an extremely complicated and far less than amicable legal process with the other side. Mr. Arnold is genuinely empathetic but is also completely forward and honest with realistic settlement/process expectations, unlike many other lawyers I met. Honestly, he is the first lawyer that I have encountered who I could describe is having integrity. His legal assistant, Diane deserves a medal. She has been so helpful and kind but also very straightforward and responsive.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Mr. Arnold to anyone seeking representation for divorce or dissolving a domestic partnership. He is certainly the most experienced and knowledgeable attorney for any LGBT person in California to have on their side.

There are few legal resources for In Pro Pers and Mr. Thurman's website has been my go to site. The site has been tremendous help as a starting point for my research and spot on for the information I need.
The man behind the site is just as amazing and is certainly ahead of his field in integrity, insight and experience. He is the peoples attorney.

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.
