We hired Jacy for what we would consider to be a complex case (unmarried, one night stand, father seeking custody, we had the bare minimum parenting time, etc.).
We intervierviewed several lawyers. Then we talked to Jacy. We knew within the first three minutes of our conversation, she was the one. She was thorough, honest, professional, and instantly made us feel like not only were we doing the right thing, but she was going to stand by our side start to finish. She absolutely did just that. Never were we uninformed. She returned every call, every email (even the ones where I was truly just babbling because I was scared); she was there. Her entire team was there. We felt like we were family. Her partners helped us, her assistant was nothing short of a hero. We met her husband/partner Mike. He assured us we were in the best hands, and that he would be there cheering us on. They are the epitome of Family Law in their treatment of clients, knowledge, staff. We felt like, and still do, family.
Jacy is a mom; kind, gentle, protective. And that's excacty what we felt from her. She was kind, gentle and when I say protective, I mean just that. She is fierce! She doesn't lose. She doesn't fold. She does what is right. And she protects her clients as she protects her young.
Jacy Arnold and her team (shout out to Jessica!) changed our lives. She did what we needed, and what was right. We knew she stood by us and never faltered. She told us what would happen from start to finish- and she was spot on.
She wins the battles. She wins the wars. She does this with competence, professionalism, strategy, fearlessness, and most importantly- love.
First we went for 50/50 and won. At that time Jacy thought we should have been fighting for full custody. We didn't listen. We were just too scared. Eight months later we came back. We won an emergency custody order, then we won full custody. I could tell you all the details in the case, but who cares? We won. It wasn't always easy, it wasn't fun. But we can't imagine being able to make it through this whole thing without Jacy and her team.
There's no doubt that Jacy Arnold and her team are the best you can find. She changed our lives. She can change yours.

Before I learned about Jacy Arnold I discreetly started my divorce proceedings w/ an incompetent attorney who provided dreadful advice and attempted to represent me inadequately. I quickly realized this and after further inquiring, Jacy Arnold came HIGHLY recommended. She represented me reverently throughout an extremely complex & unique case that lasted nearly a year. In conclusion, Jacy surpassed my greatest expectations.
My case initially involved a standard divorce and child custody, but shortly after acquiring Jacy as my attorney criminal charges evolved with my ex-husband. He was in a heinous car accident, in a rural area, while intoxicated with our 7 year old. He never notified me and deliberately delayed seeking medical treatment for hours. My ex-husband didn't have a scratch on him but my son sustained a deep contusion down to his skull with 15 stitches internally and externally which I saw personally when I finally arrived to the ER. He was under investigation by the district attorney & child protective services, yet somehow the DA's office recently determined they didn't have sufficient cause to prosecute him, despite not having a valid license for 8+ years, (due to multiple DUIs, including a hit and run) child endangerment charges, compelling evidence, witnesses and testimonies. Furthermore, our divorce was postponed three times due to unusual circumstances and by no fault of our own, during which Jacy ensured only supervised visits for his dad until we were finally able to go to court. She then presented my case to the judge as a fearless prosecutor and provided irrefutable evidence and testimonies, perjuring my ex-husband and those who testified on his behalf. Even more awe-inspiring was witnessing her prove what the DA's office neglected to even investigate, which I personally presented to them on a silver platter. My son and I have endured such unfathomable atrocities and would not have been able to survive this horrific nightmare without having Jacy on our side. She was available when I needed her, day and night, throughout my entire case, including weekends when necessary. Jacy was extremely personable, yet professional and kept me apprised continually.
I appreciate her candor and genuine concern and compassion for my family, which also reflected from her entire team of professionals. I trust Jacy implicitly and respect her immensely. I have and will continue to refer friends and patients to her. She has changed my outlook regarding a negative preconceived notion many of us have regarding attorneys. She is NOT an attorney practicing family law for the purpose of monetary gain or fame. She genuinely cares about her clients and fought incessantly for the rights of my family and safety of my son. I trusted Jacy with what I value most in this world, my son's life and his well being. I know with his alcoholic father she will be someone we will turn to throughout his life and find great comfort knowing this. Jacy Arnold is an extraordinary attorney and her resolve to help people in need is a quality that everyone should emulate. I am confident she will fight relentlessly and valiantly for you and your family as well.
(If you'd like to contact me personally I give Jacy permission to provide potential clients w/ my contact information upon request.)

Like other reviewers, Jacy gave me some attention up front after initially receiving my retainer. She then became increasingly unavailable, and was out of town for one week at a time twice within less than a month. She never told me she was on vacation and I was waiting for weeks for vital feedback. She also gave me numerous bad referrals for evaluators for the adverse party, none of whom do the work needed for the case. I did not feel she was familiar with the critical elements of my case. When I expressed concerns to her secretary she called me screaming and was very unprofessional. Very disappointed in services and will be continuing elsewhere.

Very knowledgeable! She is one of the most highly respected, sought after, and recommended attorneys in this state. I did extensive research to find the best possible representation for my children and I in my very complex case. I found her reputation is un-paralleled and well deserved.

When I first hired her, she paid attention to my case and returned my calls. As time went on she stopped taking my calls, would not return phone calls and did not keep me updated on my case. She passed duties onto others in the firm and showed little knowledge about the proper courses of action to take. It was clear that she was unprepared when the time came to go to court and she gave the incorrect course of action. I was very disappointed in this attorney's services.

Jacy Arnold was my attorney for divorce and domestic violence issues. She was always there when I needed her through thick and thin. She is a very competent and self-assured attorney who can handle even the most difficult situations with ease. I don't know what I would have done without her.

I hired Jacy Arnold to handle my custody dispute. When I first hired her, she paid attention to my case and returned my calls. As time went on she stopped taking my calls, would not return phone calls and did not keep me updated on my case. It was clear that she was unprepared when the time came to go to court and she pushed me into a settlement that was unfair to me. I was very disappointed in this attorney's services.

I cannot say enough about Ms. Arnold's incredible ability to listen to her clients, give updates as to the status of a case, attention to detail, give an amazing overview of what one's case entails. Jacy Arnold is an amazing attorney and one whom I highly esteem. She is adept and her knowledge of the laws, statutes, etc. is incredible. She is a straight shooter and does not waste time. She is highly recommended and a pleasure to work with. In addition, she knows how to handle what would be considered "complex cases". Superb attorney!

I was Jacy's first client, after she passed the Bar. In the past
9 years, it has been a pleasure watching her grow into one of the
finest lawyers in Eugene. Jacy is very professional and
knowledgeable. She is very detail oriented and has excellent presence
in the court room. I have utilized her services, both in disputes and
in lawsuits. I would highly recommend her counsel.
