Thank you Arnold Law Firm! 🤗A very special Thank You to Sal, Dominic & Jeff! 🤗🤗🤗
They always keep me up to date on my case. I also felt it was done in a timely manner!
Arnold Law firm provided me with an amazing experience. They were super communicative and assisted me with any needs or questions that I had during my journey to recovery and through financial hardship due to my car accident. I was hit by an uninsured motorist and would have been completely overwhelmed by all of the bills, paperwork, insurance nuances, and legal action needed. Jesus Garcia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Met with a lawyer who is taking care of my wife's potential lawsuit. He was nice and his assistant is really on top of things.I'd recommend them if you need representation. No upfront costs and reasonable expectations when suit is settled.
