This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Arthur’s comment: “I have been aggressively representing clients for 30 years. This case, from the mid 90's, involved a claim by my client against his former attorney. The matter was admittedly mismanaged by me and my client suffered as a result. Fees were refunded. This punishment was accepted. I am not one to make excuses, or to shirk responsibility. Integrity matters.”

I retained Mr. Arthur Porter in March 2013 to manage and process the Estate of my deceased father. He was recommended to me by several friends and professionals in the El Paso and Fremont county areas. His property and probate law experience and community law expertise helped me and my family navigate all research and legal matters pertaining to defending the Will and Probate Court processes. In his defense of my deceased father’s Will, he achieved the goals we wanted and we believe the outcome is one my Dad would have wanted. My family and I are thankful for his knowledge, enthusiasm, and legal services required to bring this matter to a satisfactory close. Thank you. Gabriel and the Family

Mr. Porter is the Best Attorney anyone could ever hope to find. I say this without any hesitation and would trust him with my life. I am an old U.S. Marine and any Marine will tell you...Trust is something earned, never given !! With that said ...I would go into any firefight knowing Arthur Porter has my "Six"

The last four plus years dealing with my ex was a nightmare. Arthur saw right through it all and got down to business. He was professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, and got the job done. He devised a strategy that I was comfortable with and got positive results.
I finally have some peace in my life and can focus on what's important. Thank you!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Mr. Porter and I worked opposite on an extraordinarily difficult dissolution with children case. In the end, we were able to work out a detailed and fair settlement that was mutually acceptable to both parties, which was no small task. During that process, I found him to be a shrewd and zealous advocate for his client and, more importantly, a trustworthy and honest man. I endorse this attorney.
