Arnie has provided legal advice to me for over 10 years, since our old neighbor days in Montecito. He has always been there to help, protect my rights and interests in all cases, and always honest and friendly.

Arnsen Blakely made us feel safely supported under overwhelming circumstances. He stayed calm but fought strong, not with emotion or reaction but with intelligence and professionalism. He knows what he's doing and he does it extremely well. Our outcome was magnificent thanks to Arnsen Blakely.

I've retained Arnie Blakeley for a number of "projects" over the years: developing a detailed business plan for my son who was entering a new business venture; drafting a pre-nuptial agreement, then revising my long-standing family trust when I remarried seven years ago; and more recently drafting and reviewing documents for the purchase and sale of real estate.
A key quality Arnie expresses is empathy. He instinctively senses the objective I'm working toward, and understands my needs, feelings and timing constraints in moving toward the objective. He just "gets it".

I recently had the pleasure of working with Arnie Blakely on a complex commercial real estate transaction and on related matters. He provided clear, concise, and prompt advice.
He evidenced excellent people skills in working with a challenging buyer on the commercial real estate sale. He performed the work on time and on budget. To make sure the transaction closed on time, he even arranged to have his paralegal visit my home when I was ill to arrange for signing and notarizing documents.
I could not be more pleased with his advice, friendliness, promptness, and thoroughness.
