- Arenson Law was a huge relief

Specifically Justin Riem: Justin was fantastic handling my divorce. He was always right to the point, and concerned about my time and billing. There was never a surprise at what I was being charged. He was good at telling me what I needed to get done and used his experience to say what he expected from opposing counsel. He took the time to get to know my personal situation and it sort of felt like he molded the case around my specific circumstance. He had great ideas for negotiating. He had ideas on how to show opposing counsel facts and figures which helps negotiating. Fortunately, I did not have to go to trial, but I felt very confident if he would have represented me in court. He’s fair, but definitely fights for his client. He’s very compassionate and understands this is a very rough event in a person’s life. He ran my divorce as I wanted him to, for example, if I told him to ‘wait a while’, he did. I’d highly recommend him for children.

- Justin was fantastic

Justin is awesome. My only regret is that I didn’t use him for my divorce because if I had, I know it would have been done correctly the first time and I wouldn’t have needed Justin again for it. He was a complete professional and showed genuine concern and care for my situation. Trust Justin because of the above and he will give it to you straight. Thanks Justin for your support and help with my situation.

- Huge help with Divorce Decree Modification

Justin is incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He continuously surprised me with him how quickly he got things done. There is no doubt that Justin works hard and fast! I never had to question if he had the time in his schedule to progress my case along as quickly as I had desired. More often than not, after meeting with Justin the work he needed to do was completed and sent to me by the end of that day. Every time we so spoke on the phone he knew exactly who I was and instantly recalled my case and details. Justin only has his client’s best intentions in mind and is very trustworthy. Financially speaking, Justin was 100% honest and always kept me in the loop; I had no surprises! I can’t thank him enough for the hard work he has done for me and my family!
