    "Jim Arnold is an excellent attorney. Shortly after I moved our family from Florida to Ohio, my wife was the victim of an auto accident during which she broke her wrist. Still with boxes to unpack and two children in diapers, it was a difficult time for us, to say the least. With the insurance company forcing delay after delay, I enlisted Jim, who came highly recommended, to help us. Not only did we receive a settlement expeditiously, it was also far more than we anticipated. Jim Arnold brings results. That was more than 11 years ago. Today, I employ Jim to collect challenging and sensitive delinquent accounts for us. Jim collected one account that had been written off for more than two years. It was an account that, frankly, I thought we'd never see a penny from. Jim collected a significant percentage of the account, which greatly surprised me. Jim is not only a rare attorney, but a rare business person and human being as well. He embodies the traits of intelligence, common sense, diligence, honesty, insight, integrity, thoroughness, humanity, and humor. Yes, Jim's even a fun guy to be around! Jim has been far more than an attorney and friend to me, my business, and my family. He is a wonderful confidant, mentor, and coach. I would never hesitate to recommend Jim to anyone. He's great - and a tremendous credit to the legal profession. I'm honored to have Jim Arnold as my attorney and friend, and I greatly appreciate having the opportunity to tell you about him. I know Jim would be humbled by being recognized with this honor. You ought to know, though, that honoring an attorney of Jim's caliber raises the esteem of your award."
    - Don DePerro

    "Jim is an excellent litigator because he makes sure that he understands all of the strengths and weaknesses of your case and then he prepares harder and more thoroughly than anyone I have seen so that he is ready for all the unpredictable turns that litigation inevitably takes. Additionally, Jim is a person that I enjoy doing business with. When you combine talent and personality with hard work and ethics, you have a winning combination - and that is what I found in Jim. Needless to say, I would hire Jim again in a heartbeat. "
