Divorce Madness
I listened to a couple of my friends and took advantage of Brian’s free consultation concerning my divorce situation. He was the first attorney to give me concrete ideas. I hired him and was thankful I did. My case got under control and I was able to get some good results.

Custody Battle
I had a horrible custody situation. Parent time was being denied. The children were not wanting to come over. Brian told me how to handle the situation and what experts to get in order to prove my case. It took time but it was worth it.

Brian went over my case in detail and gave me a plan on how to use the strengths of my case to my advantage. He also warned me of potential problems in my case and how to stay away from them. Brian was aggressive and sensitive to my situation. Overall, I would recommend him to my closest friends and family.

Divorce Proceedings
I tried to do my divorce myself and was failing. I needed someone that knew the process and judges. After doing research I chose Brian. it was a great fit. He knew the process and knew how to approach the situation. His staff was great. He is busy but I know understand why.

Fought for me on my criminal case
I will not put my name for specific reasons but Brian listened to my opinion and facts and fought for me. At first it seemed the prosecutor did not care but Brian kept coming up with different ways to approach the case. It worked out great and came to a great solution.

Alimony Issues
I needed to modify how much I was paying in Alimony. I found Brian on Avvo and was impressed from the first meeting. His paralegal Jen is first class. He told me it could be a long process but highlighted what could be done to hopefully get it done faster. He also explained the cost/benefit of modifying alimony. I was able to get a quick and good result. Thank you to Brian and his Staff!

Helped Business
I hired Brian to help me with some issues in my business. He helped me see the bigger picture of the lawsuit and the best way to approach it. I trusted his advice and was successful in the lawsuit. Brian is busy, but I found if I set up times to talk to him on the phone he was available. He does not forget about your case and puts a personal touch on the case.

Fixed my Divorce action
I hired Brian in the middle of my divorce action. It involved custody and alimony. On the custody he know the custody evaluators and explained which ones he thought would be right for my case. Alimony was settled in a fair manner after Brian educated me on the financials and law. I wish I would have hired Brian in the beginning.

Creative and Researched my DUI
I came in to do a consultation with Brian on a DUI case. Right away Brian started to notice holes in my case. Brian really listened and realized that explaining and teaching me on the law helped the case. He found ways to help get me a better result. He also informed me of things he could try and the cost associated with such tactics. He would also explain how likely he thought certain tactics would work. I got a great result in my DUI that I did not think was possible. Brian was very helpful and aggressive in getting my case to a good outcome that I understood.

Divorce Done!
My divorce was done wrong from the beginning. I called and had a consultation with Brian. I could tell from the consultation that he was aggressive and creative in his approach on how he wanted to fix my case. The plan took time but it ended up helping me in the long run. I have referred him to several of my friends.

Brian is a Master of his trade!
Brian was the intelligent attorney I needed. He helped navigate me through my legal situation in a way that was not only very beneficial to me financially but he also took control of the case in a manner that did not make me worry. He helped me settle for three times higher than any other attorney quoted me. Thanks again to Brian and his staff.

Creative in getting to outcome
I hired Brian for a custody modification. Brian went through all my different options including him giving me his opinion on custody evaluators he felt that were best for my case and facts. His staff was fantastic. His paralegal was there to help if Brian was in court. I got a great outcome in my case not far from what Brian predicted. He did a great job. He listened to my goals and was honest with me in my risks. I would hire again.

AMAZING ATTORNEY!! Highly Recommend!!
Brian was great in representing me in my divorce. He was the third attorney I hired who finally negotiated what I wanted and his fees were the most reasonable out of all the other attorneys I met with. He is very professional and well respected In the courtroom. He is aggressive when he needs to be and was always on top of communication with me which was nice. I highly recommend Brian to anyone who wants an awesome attorney in Utah!!

Best Attorney Money Can Buy!
Brian Arnold was the best attorney I've ever had! I had 2 other attorneys before him that really caused me some grief with my child custody case I was going through. When my ex took me to court again I ended up with the best Lawyer money can buy. I trusted him with my family, my most prized possessions...my children! He didn't disappoint. In fact, he went above and beyond and I ended up being able to finally move out state with my kids. He will deliver what he says he will! I have already referred multiple people to him and his lawfirm and I will never walk in a court room again without Brian Arnold!

I was the opposition
Mr. Arnold not only demonstrated a mastery for his trade and understanding on the legal maze that was set through the trail. I observed his excellence in maneuvering around potentially damaging evidences without losing focus on his clients main objectives. While I whole-heartedly disagree with the case Mr. Arnold represented I can not deny he was skillful, professional, and dedicated to his client.
