Hired him to work on Custody and Visitation case as well as Child support..he was able to get me my visitation for my children and to lower my child support payment as a result of the visitation. As with any case the complexity of the situation must be addressed by a skill litigator.

Going through a divorce is not easy; it’s not only extremely stressful, but it’s even harder when you have kids involved. Not knowing where to start, what the process is, and being completely clueless totally described me prior to meeting Douglas Arenivar. I have personally had the opportunity to work with Douglas after I was working directly with a Paralegal whom I was dissatisfied with. I felt like my Paralegal was always in a rush and didn’t have the law background I needed to help me with my situation. I then reached out to Douglas and was so glad I did.

From the first consultation I had with Douglas I was blown away with his knowledge and professionalism. He was always very thorough in explaining the entire divorce process and guided me through each step. Douglas has always been someone who first listens, and then will give you his opinion and advice before making any decisions. He has always made himself available to answer any questions at all times of the day. Douglas was also big on resolving issues between both parties versus dragging on the case knowing how costly divorce can be. I would recommend Douglas in a heartbeat he has the education, legal skills, and dedication to assist anyone going through a divorce.

I hired Douglas after firing my previous attorney. My previous attorney was not responding to any of my feedback about how my case was being handled and how the case was progressing. After two years and no end in sight, I switched to Douglas. One of the things that I like about Douglas is that he is direct and forthcoming about the likelihood of a particular outcome in the case. No sugar-coating. I'm not looking for my attorney to promise me the world, just give it to me straight. Douglas is also a strategic thinker. He considers the outcome of each available choice carefully. Lastly, he is great at remembering all the details of a case. My previous attorney ran a mill pumping clients in and out and I had to keep reminding her of the details of the case. in hindsight, I'm kicking myself that I didn't make the change sooner. Douglas was focused on my case and with that steel trap of a memory could remind me of details that I had forgotten. I highly recommend him for anyone going through a divorce.


I have been a client of Mr. Arenivar for years. He has represented me and my family in several legal matters. He is always respectful of my time and has always provided me with outstanding service. He is very knowledgeable, professional and dedicated to his work. He takes the time to review your case and explain things and makes sure that you know what is happening every step of the way. He is a family man and understands the fears and insecurities his clients may be going through.
I have had to call him at odd hours of the morning, night and weekends, Mr. Arenivar always returns my calls promptly and gives me his full attention. He has always been upfront and honest with me. In one occasion I consulted with Mr. Arenivar about a case involving my son, he listened and at the end of our conversation he referred me to a colleague of his who he felt had more experience in that particular field. He did not try to take my money knowing that, that was not his specialty. I appreciate his honesty. I felt had it been another attorney he may have agreed to take the case just for the money, and that was not the case with Mr. Arenivar.
If you want someone well prepared and aggressive to represent you who will go above and beyond what is required, then you will want to hire Mr. Arenivar.
These are just a few of the reasons why I recommend Attorney Arenivar to anyone I know has a legal problem. I feel confident that he always does an exceptional job. Personally I seldom make recommendations but I feel very confident and trust Mr. Arenivars work to refer him to others, especially people I know.
