Review for James Arndt
Jim was beyond helpful in several ways in assisting with the sale of my 80 year old cabin. He was creative and able to think outside of the box and really put together a contract that addressed all liabilities and issues that we faced. He was very timely in calls and all follow through. And he was very pleasant and professional. His team also gave exemplary service.

Mr. Arndt handled my lengthy/difficult recent divorce for me to receive a great settlement offer.
Mr. Arndt always included a copy for me when dealing with the other party's attorney, so I was always adequately informed. Mr. Arndt also took time to explain and answer my questions I had and handled the situation when the other party was confined to a Protection Order and was "breaking the rules" on it. Mr. Arndt was ALWAYS professional in the legal dealings when we were challenged in any manner and at the same time, tried to keep my legal fees at a minimum for his time spent. I would recommend Mr. Arndt to anyone, since he can be trusted and knows his facts and the rulings within the Court system.

A sensitive, caring, and experienced attorney
My neighbor and I had the need for legal representation and help regarding a regrettable neighborhood situation that could seriously harm us. We received referrals from local community residents that told us Jim had the background, experience, and capability to help us. He was responsive and I was truly impressed by, not only his willingness to help, but that I really feel he felt we were being treated poorly and incorrectly and he wanted to do what was needed to protect us. It was not just words but a commitment to help that also came from the heart.

I was sued by my HOA which was a very scary and stressful thing to go through. I felt that this lawsuit was an injustice but one never knows how a case may be judged. I needed an attorney immediately and Mr. Arndt came through and kept the HOA from gaining access to my property and placing a lien on my home. Jim has a calm demeanor which is important quality for dealing with a client that is upset and frightened. I felt that he really cared about my case and gave it a great deal of thought and follow through. He was open to my suggestions and input which was appreciated. Jim is very honest and would not tell me what I wanted to hear but he would tell me the truth and that gained my complete respect for him. The case went to court and I am happy to say the court ruled in my favor including the plaintiff paying my attorney’s fees. I would highly recommend Jim for a complicated case such as this one or for that matter any case. You will be in good hands with Mr. Arndt.

Attorney review
I live in Maine and several years ago was involved in a lawsuit which required legal representation in Colorado. Jim Arndt was recommended to me by a well respected Colorado judge. As well as his legal experience, Jim's down to earth personality, honesty, and integrity impressed me, especially since we were dealing with a less than honorable attorney and plaintiff. Jim kept me focused and grounded in the two year ordeal. I would without hesitation recommend Jim Arndt for legal representation. Also, I would like to mention that his staff was very helpful and friendly.

Jim is a fine mediator and community volunteer
Jim has been a volunteer mediator for our county-funded community mediation program since October, 2013. During his tenure with our program, he has completed 21 cases, mostly as a lead mediator. Most, but not all, of these cases have been family law cases, often referred to our program from county Child Support Services. Without Jim's assistance, many of these parties would not have the benefit of mediation to help them resolve their child support and parenting issues. Seventeen of Jim's cases have gone to mediation, and agreements were reached by the parties in 70% of them. This high agreement percentage is a tribute to Jim's skills as a mediator and evidence of his empathy for the needs of the parties in a very trying time in their lives. As Director of this program, I can say that I value Jim highly as a volunteer, I respect his skills, and hope that he remains with our program for a very long time. Although I know Jim is a skilled attorney, I also highly recommend him as a mediator. As further evidence of Jim's concern for our community, he has also served with me on our judicial district Access to Justice Committee and has been personally involved in the Committee's outreach efforts to bring real justice to more of our citizens. I am happy to have the opportunity to testify to the skills Jim brings to his role as a mediator. I am pleased to give him a very high rating and commend him to anyone who is considering him as a mediator for their dispute.

Empathetic, Calm, Focused, and Thorough
Not long ago, I was facing a difficult and terrifying probate case involving severe outside influence surrounding my wife's passing. I was blessed with a referral to Jim Arndt and his sympathetic demeanor and supportive approach were of great comfort during this emotionally devasting time. Just as importantly, Jim's extensive research into the factual elements of the case, thorough development of effective arguments, and highly focused yet calm presentation during the trial convinced the judge and jury of the truth and enabled us to prevail against an aggressive and often blustery opposition. While I hope I never encounter another situation like this one, if fate dictates I once again face this level of challenge, I would without hesitation engage Jim to represent me and the interests of my family.

Mr. Arndt as a divorce attorney
I found Mr. Arndt to be an excellent attorney and counselor during a very trying time and would highly recommend his services. He was professional and compassionate. He listened and gave sound advice. What was also very useful was that he gave accurate advice; he never promised more than what the Court was likely to order so I could plan accordingly and I wasn't shocked or disappointed by the Court's ruling. He was timely, something I have found is not easy to find in attorneys and he is easy to talk to. I have recommended him many times to friends and colleagues and they have experienced the same excellent work with him.

James Arndt
You might have added to your guidelines, "Be brief." Jim has been my attorney for over 25 years. I have referred my clients to him without reservation, and they never been disappointed. Most recently, Jim put together an agreement on the sale of a $900,000 marina. Jim is honest, sticks to the point, keeps people at ease, and competent. He knows the law. He will always be my attorney.

Excellent Family Attorney
After many years of trying to get my ex to help pay for medical bills for our child who had medical disabilities, Jim took my case all the way to hearing and won! At hearing Jim was eloquent with his arguments for my son and my ex was ordered to not only pay for his share of our child's medical expenses but was also ordered to pay additional child support after he turned 18. Both Jim and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and Jim was always willing to listen when i needed to vent my frustrations. while I hope i will not need his services in the future I would recommend him time and time again!
