The Real McCoy
Mr Arbuckle successfully litigated my defense against charges of Shareholder Oppression. His knowledge of the law was superb, his advise wise, and his demeanor professional and reassuring. I would highly recommend Mr Arbuckle without hesitation.

30 Year Client Lauds Superior Legal Representation
I have been a client of Mr. Arbuckle's since 1984. He has provided stellar representation for over 30 years. My association with Mr. Arbuckle has yielded impressive legal counsel against companies with very deep legal pockets. His firm is a giant when it comes to handling complex legal issues. He is accessable to his clients, knowledgeable of all topics and fearless in his presentation. He is well-respected in the community. There is not enough room on this page to praise the quality of his counsel. If you are going against Goliath, Kurt Arbuckle is the "David" you need in your corner.

Kurt Arbuckle
I was a client of Kurt Arbuckle He claimed he would fight for me against the insurance company, but when the insurance company gave a low offer , he did not seem to know what to do and withdrew from my case and I am now without an attorney
Response from Richard Arbuckle April 22, 2015
Dear Client, Thank you for your feedback. Sure, I like to see positive reviews, but a negative review is valuable, as it lets me know where to look to make my clients' experience even better. I will go back over our relationship from the very beginning to see what I and my staff can do to make every client's experience as good as the circumstances allow. I am sorry our relationship did not end on a positive note. I do insist that in representing a client, I be allowed to use my judgment to decide the best approach. I believe that is why a client hires me. You will have plenty of time to find a lawyer who is more in accord with your view of how to proceed with your case, and as I have said, I will be glad to provide any help to that lawyer you authorize me to give. This October I will have been practicing law 40 years, helping victims of others' wrongs. I want every client to be as pleased as possible. Best of luck to you.
