      Thurman lives and breathes family law. I have been a practicing litigator for over 20 years and I consider Thurman like a Scientist of California Law. He is the only family lawyer I refer to in the Coachella Valley. He approaches his work with intellect, ingenuity and energy, and has been an inspiration to me as a lawyer.

      Having had to engage legal representation in the unfortunate situation of 2 divorces in 10 years, the latter as the direct result of a protracted 5+ year business lawsuit, I have experienced a number lawyers in these matters. Mr Arnold is the most thoroughly knowledgeable and effective of the 5 I have had to engage in Family Law. He is also highly ethical in his practice. I give him the highest recommendation.

      Within the past 5 years, I've had 6 attorneys that have done NOTHING to move my divorce case along but had allowed it to go stagnant. And in the meantime, they sat back and asked for more money. Not one of them was worth the money I paid them. Mr. Arnold was recommended to me and I couldn't be more grateful! I finally found an attorney that is very knowledgeable about the law, extremely thorough and fights for me! He has achieved more in 5 months than my past 6 attorneys had in 5 years combined!

      Mr Arnold accepted to represent me after a prior attorney's mal-practice and non-practice left me hanging with a merit-less 'Motion to Compel' in a Family Law divorce proceeding. No other lawyer in our area would accept my case because of the craziness of opposing counsel. His representation restored my faith in at least one person in what is a very broken legal system in Riverside Cty. His representation is adroit, direct, succinct and affordable.
