An Excellent Experience
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr.Arnold after dealing with a prior attorney who just wasn't working out for me. I researched lawyers and felt that after reviews, Mr.Arnold was an attorney that I was looking for to help me with my parent's Will. I must say, the decision was right! From the first visit in his office to the last, I was treated most professionally and had things explained with much knowledge in a way I could understand. Communication was open the entire time! There were a few bumpy roads along the way within the Will, but Mr.Arnold and his staff were right on top of things. I could have never accomplished an end to these issues without them. There were a few times when the longer office hours were also much appreciated. I can't say thank you enough to him for taking on this case. It was a little hard to find trust after dealing with the first attorney, however the office of Donald Arnold brought back that trust I needed in an attorney. I highly recommend his office and will be using him for personal reasons of my own in the near future.

Donald Arnold is the best!
Donald Arnold is the best lawyer I have ever talked with and received help that I needed. Donald Arnold and his office are very caring people. Mr. Arnold has helped me with a couple different cases and also helped with writing of family Will’s and Power of Attorney Documents. He is very kind and explains everything. His fee’s were very good. He has even helped me with some documents without charging me. He just wanted to help me. I would highly recommend Donald Arnold for all your legal needs.

Client Review
I found this lawyer for a small non-profit I volunteer for when other attorneys turned our case down cold. He was excellent to work with and we won the case, so in every way we were happy. He has answered a few legal questions on contracts since then for us and we remain very happy.
