"Michael Fink helped me with my divorce. he did a great job. from the moment i sat down with him he gave me confidence in my choice i made to get a lawyer. everyone has their ways how they would like things to go but not always are they the right actions. Michael Fink showed me every out come of how a situation would go down if i chose to walk the road i wanted to walk. he didn't hold me back from my choices but in turn he provided me a clear thought of how to do things in a right legal way.Michael Fink provides a comfortable environment. always friendly and respectful. Even when he was neck deep in paper work he still finds time to get a hold of you for what ever question you had. i honestly didnt want to get a lawyer but after looking around an making a few phone calls an running into Michael i was happy i found him. our divorce went very well. we only had to go 1 time into court. He promised me a smooth divorce for my situation an smooth is how it went. once i provided him information on what he needed he was set an we closed the deal smoothly. thank you Michael." - EL

"Before I contacted Arnold and Rodman, I have contacted couple of other Law offices but none of them took the time to explain to me the process thoroughly as Mr. Michael Fink did. After talking to Mr. Michael Fink on the phone for about twenty minutes, I have decided seem him in his office. After meeting him in person I have decided that he will be the right person to represent me in my marriage dissolution. My marriage dissolution ended as I expected it to be, because Mr. Michael didn't give me false promises and he walked me through the expectations that I need to have in my mind. He told me " it is like a marathon, and it can be slow sometimes", with that in mind, I was patient and hopeful with the process. After months of working with Mr. Michael Fink, I can say he was always accessible and prompt in his emails anytime anywhere, even when he was on vacation. I am very happy that I found him to represent me and I recommend anybody else who is looking for a good lawyer." - MM

"I have worked with Valerie Arnold for the past 9 months as she has handled my separation / divorce case. During that time, I have very impressed with Valerie and her team. They are highly knowledgeable, professional and responsive. She stayed on top of every detail and did an excellent job of setting realistic expectations regarding the multiple aspects of my case. It was very comforting know that I was represented by such a highly competent team which resulted in a better that expected outcome."

"I am a former client of Valerie Arnold and I would recommend her and her firm to anyone looking for excellent counsel from attorneys who really care for their clients. Valerie handled my very complex Child Custody case stretching across state lines, from Minnesota to Nevada, for over a period of almost two years. During that time I found Ms. Arnold and her staff to be very knowledgeable and professional, yet completely personable. Valerie Arnold truly has heart and compassion when utilizing her knowledge of the law to help families like my own. I feel very fortunate to have found Ms. Arnold; without her I am unsure that I would have custody of my children today."

"Ms Downing helped secure an equitable divorce settlement at a time when I was still grieving for the loss of two close family members. She was very concerned for my welfare and was fearless in dealing with the opposing attorney."

"Scott Rodman is exceptional. He has been my attorney for 3 1/2 years, through the various trials and tribulations of divorce. I have needed his services off and on during that time due to several issues (divorce settlement, domestic disturbance, parenting time conflicts) with a difficult ex-spouse. Scott is fair and thorough. He does everything he can do, while also taking cost into consideration. He is extremely knowledgeable and gives excellent guidance, yet is supportive of any decisions I choose to make. He knows the ins-and-outs of my case, and I trust him implicitly. Scott is responsive even during his busiest times. To me, most importantly, he is respectful and kind, knowing the emotional toll a divorce can take on an individual and often "talks me down" from arguments with my volatile ex-husband. He takes a personal interest in making sure my son and I are well represented. I am extremely fortunate to have him as my attorney. I highly recommend Scott Rodman."
- Angela

"Scott took over my case after I was forced to change attorneys due to the collaborative process. Scott has been in my corner and has worked hard to get the best possible outcomes in mediation and when I finally had to go to court over outstanding issues. He was successful in us winning every issue we presented in court. He has never nickel or dimed me like other attorneys do. He also maintains good relationships with the entire legal community which makes working with other attorneys / mediators a positive experience. I would and have recommended Scott to others and will continue to do so."

"When I found myself going through a divorce, a colleague of mine referred Zak to me and told me of his experience, fairness, and knowledge of what was to lay ahead. I have to say, I couldn't have picked a better attorney to represent me. He carefully explained the process and how it pertained to my situation, gave me excellent advice, always spelled out the options before we made any decisions and sometimes when needed, was just a good listener. The outcome was good for my family and I owe it all to Zak."
- BM

Zachary has represented me in my divorce case since June 2008. Even though my divorce isn’t over yet, my trial is, and I wanted to write this letter in support of his professionalism on my case. He has always promptly returned my phone calls and email messages. Zachary and his firm met all deadlines to have paperwork turned into the court. This was extremely important since I had more than one pre-trial and since my case did proceed to a two and a half day trial. Zachary always provided helpful input but also reminded me it was my case and asked me to think things over and make the final decision. He is well informed on the laws and statutes and applied them whenever necessary. I feel comfortable knowing my case is being handled as well as it can be.
