We have a plan for the unplanned.

If street smarts were peer-reviewed and ranked, we would have that plaque hanging in our office. Our reputation for swift, thoughtful analysis of a situation, rapid, strategic response, and attentive client communication has been earned through many years of experience. The ability to adapt quickly and make sound decisions in actively-evolving situations is perhaps the cornerstone of our reputation. Our attorneys and staff have a wide range of individual expertise and experience representing a broad cross section of individuals and companies.

Backed by thorough and persuasive legal research and writing and effective oral advocacy skills, White Arnold & Dowd P.C. provides outstanding representation in state and federal trial and appellate courts statewide, and beyond.

Since we have seen and guided clients through just about everything that can come out of left field to threaten the future of a company, individual, or family, we work with clients to anticipate and prevent these disruptions from ever occurring. The best plan for the unplanned is to head off a potential issue in a boardroom or conference room so that it never gets to a courtroom. But if a matter does end up in court, our clients can rest assured that they are in the hands of a skilled and accomplished trial team.

    Retaining Steve Arnold as my divorce lawyer was the best decision I have ever made. His knowledge of matrimonial law, professional conduct in the courtroom, guidance, reassurance & communication with me exceeded all of my expectations. Additionally, the care & concern he demonstrated to my children & me was genuinely sincere over the long haul we endured. He succeeded on my behalf in the divorce & in subsequent litigation that went all the way to the Appellate Court. He is the best!

    Steve Arnold did an excellent job in successfully representing me during my divorce proceedings, which included a very emotional and bitter custody battle. Steve was prepared every step of the way. He was not only my advocate, but also an advocate for my young son. Steve stayed on top of things and kept me informed throughout the process. Steve's understanding of people was most impressive. I feel this quality helped him to keep me on course and prepare me for a very emotional trial.

    Steve Arnold represented me in a very bitter and contested divorce. His training, experience, perspective and compassionate judgment were critical in successfully litigating the divorce. I found Mr. Arnold or his staff available when needed, supportive and diligent. My legal costs were reasonable given the quality of representation, and the billing was always meticulously documented. Mr. Arnold came highly Happy Clients and I would retain him again if I required legal assistance.

    My primary attorney could not attend my court hearing. Steve Arnold represented upon little notice to me, no court room preparation, etc. In other words, he offered nothing of expectations of the day. I was blindsided. I was in shock as he flailed around the room with innuendoes instead of acutely documented case facts. He failed to even address key decrees or grounds of our suit. The loss was enormous; he also agreed the judges rule was in the wrong and still, refused to appeal or assist.

    I had no children with my X-husband and we had separate checking accounts. The divorce should have been simple. Mr. Arnold prolonged it for about 2 years. He was unresponsive, arrogant, hard to reach, & once came late to court. After spending about $30 K, and no progress, I fired him. He delayed giving me my file. When he gave me the file, it was a mess. The new attorney was honest and respectful to me. Moreover he finished my divorce in a few weeks and cost me only $5000.
