I want to thank Arthur for his outstanding support and knowedge. His dedication to my personal issues allowed me to focus my attention on my family and took pressure off me during a very difficult time. His personal approach provided me with a great deal of comfort. His attention was not just about business but what was right for me and my family. Throughtout my case he was there to answer questions and provide me with specfic directions both in person and by email. At no time did I have to wait for a return call or email. His attention to customer service provided me with a ease of mind. When going through a very difficult time, it is important to have answers and/or information to calm the nerves and/or reduce the stress with a situation. Arthur was always there to help me understand the issues. My family and I thank him for his supprt and help.

Art represented me in a very difficult and emotional case against a former employer, and was not only a great lawyer, but also the source of emotional support during a very difficult time. Very knowledgable, and I still continue to consult him to this day!
Really cares about his clients and will give you straight forward, factual information... always!

Represented me in several different types of cases from employment issues to family law. In every instance, always felt like I couldn't be in better hands. He is knowledgeable & skilled both in & out of the courtroom.
