Smart, Dedicated, Strategic Divorce Attorney
Arthur Sneider represented me in a post-divorce case involving both financial matters as well as child custody issues. He is thoughtful and strategic as a professional while his extensive experience with the law and his interpersonal skills make him the perfect negotiator--able to be both reasonable and flexible yet dynamic and convincing when necessary in court. His understanding of the nuances of the law, as well as his dedication to truly thinking through how to best prepare for alternatives helped me to think about what was most important. Attorney Sneider came on to assist "late in the game" and was able to settle matters that several very expensive "downtown" lawyers had botched. Attorney Sneider, along with the other attorneys in his practice, make sure that all documents are organized and that your case is well-prepared. Arthur understands children and families and will assist you to determine what makes the most sense. This was the first experience with an attorney I did not dread! I would highly recommend Arthur Sneider if you are seeking a divorce attorney or dealing with matters of child custody.

Strategic and trustworthy
Arthur is a highly experienced and knowledgeable attorney who did his best in my estimation for handling my divorce case. He is very responsive, and paid great attention to the important matters. He was quick thinking in response to difficulties/challenges posed by the other party and managed the case well.

A Old Client
My husband and I hired Mr. Sneider in 2012 to represent us for our case. I rate Mr.Sneider from temperament to professionalism for one star. Mr. Sneider definitely has no best interest for his clients. He cares about his feeling more than the client's case. He dropped out of our case even though we strongly against his action. He left us hanging. It's not a pleasant experience work with Mr. Sneider.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Mar 03
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Arthur Sneider was brought in somewhat late in the game as co-counsel for the wife in a difficult and highly emotional divorce negotiation in which I represented the Husband. The divorce negotiations and litigation had been going on for close to two years. Among the issues that were difficult to resolve was the division of the husband’s share of a small business and how much was to be paid in alimony. Despite being assertive and a strong advocate for his client, Arthur somehow struck the right tone in our four-way negotiations and managed to hit it off with my client, and we ended up with a settlement and avoiding what would have been an expensive trial. I found him to be highly professional and thorough. Almost as important in settling divorce cases, he took excellent care of his client while also managing to consider and acknowledge the interests of my client. Arthur obtained an excellent outcome for his client and won the respect of my client and me in the process."
