Knowledge and Skill to protect an Estate and Defend a Last Will and Testament in Colorado
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

Finally... someone who could and was willing to help!
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!

I would highly recommend Arthur Porter
I hired Arthur and his very capable staff after firing my first attorney. He has a can do attitude that he backed up with a ton of knowledge in family law. He was an ethical advocate for me. He succeeded where my first attorney said we would fail. He is a good man who is involved in our community in many ways. I would not hesitate to use Arthur in the future and highly recommend him to my friends who may need his services.

Defused a tense child custody issue with a woderful letter and explained the reasons why it was best to see it my way.
Mr Porter took a very tense situation between my exhusband and myself over a custody issue of re- newing my daughters passport so we could travel over the holiday and resolved within 48hrs. He has a wonderful way with words and explained why it was in my exes best interest to agree with me ad approve the new passport. I would work with Mr Porter at anytime, he's honest, fair and itelligent.

Wouldn't go to anyone else!
I would reccomend him to anyone seeking representation in a legal custody situation. He is very knowledgeable about what he is doing. Always kept me informed of what to do, and helped me be reasonable with the decisions that I had to make. He helped me to make the decision about what was best for my child, not always what I wanted. Though I did not always want to do what he was telling me, "be nice to your ex" "be the ex everyone wishes they had," it paid off later. He also KNEW about the case when I called, I wasn't a file to him. I could call and explain my situation and he advised me what the best thing to do was. I also knew that in my absence, since I was out of state, I knew he was going to make the decision that I would have made. He is by far exceeded my expectations!!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 1999.

Suspension issued in CO, 1999
updated on 07/11/2018

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 35 years. This case, from the mid 90's, involved a claim by my client against his former attorney. Unfortunately, my firm made a mistake and our 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.”
