  • "A sensitive, caring, and experienced attorney

    My neighbor and I had the need for legal representation and help regarding a regrettable neighborhood situation that could seriously harm us. We received referrals from local community residents that told us Jim had the background, experience, and capability to help us. He was responsive and I was truly impressed by, not only his willingness to help, but that I really feel he felt we were being treated poorly and incorrectly and he wanted to do what was needed to protect us. It was not just words but a commitment to help that also came from the heart."

  • "You might have added to your guidelines, "Be brief." Jim has been my attorney for over 25 years. I have referred my clients to him without reservation, and they never been disappointed.

    Most recently, Jim put together an agreement on the sale of a $900,000 marina.

    Jim is honest, sticks to the point, keeps people at ease, and competent. He knows the law. He will always be my attorney."

  • "Excellent Family Attorney. After many years of trying to get my ex to help pay for medical bills for our child who had medical disabilities, Jim took my case all the way to hearing and won! At hearing Jim was eloquent with his arguments for my son and my ex was ordered to not only pay for his share of our child's medical expenses but was also ordered to pay additional child support after he turned 18. Both Jim and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and Jim was always willing to listen when I needed to vent my frustrations. while I hope i will not need his services in the future I would recommend him time and time again!"

  • I found Mr. Arndt to be an excellent attorney and counselor during a very trying time and would highly recommend his services. He was professional and compassionate. He listened and gave sound advice. What was also very useful was that he gave accurate advice; he never promised more than what the Court was likely to order so I could plan accordingly and I wasn't shocked or disappointed by the Court's ruling. He was timely, something I have found is not easy to find in attorneys and he is easy to talk to. I have recommended him many times to friends and colleagues and they have experienced the same excellent work with him.

  • I live in Maine and several years ago was involved in a lawsuit which required legal representation in Colorado. Jim Arndt was recommended to me by a well respected Colorado judge. As well as his legal experience, Jim's down to earth personality, honesty, and integrity impressed me, especially since we were dealing with a less than honorable attorney and plaintiff. Jim kept me focused and grounded in the two year ordeal. I would without hesitation recommend Jim Arndt for legal representation. Also, I would like to mention that his staff was very helpful and friendly.

  • "Paul Danborn's legal advice during my divorce continually focused on what was best for my children and the family as a whole. ... events ...could have easily escalated and become expensive and traumatic. When emotions were already running high because of the pain and trauma in our divorce, Paul had a settling affect on everyone involved. Our case could have easily blown up in a bad way with an attorney that had an agitating or inflammatory approach. Paul Danborn was the exact opposite. He hit a perfect balance between astute legal advice and that of the bigger picture of a family going through a very painful time in their lives. For this balance, I will always be grateful."
