I highly recommend Fred Arquilla and his law firm on family law matters. Fred brought the right blend of military and civilian law background and experience in representing me on a series of family law matters and the several court proceedings that followed. His strategies and recommendations, and his courtroom advocacy, worked the best possible outcomes each time we were in court. I plan to continue to rely on Fred and his law firm for all my future legal needs—throughout the rest of my life.
From my first meeting with Fred, I was impressed with his willingness to listen carefully and without interruption to the details of my situation – a divorce after 37 years of marriage. After listening, his comments and questions demonstrated his years of experience and mastery of the legal system. His military background was a particular asset in my case, playing a vital role in the divorce settlement. Whenever I had questions, they were answered promptly, thoroughly and thoughtfully. The charges for his legal services as well as arrangements for payment were more than fair. Throughout a very difficult and trying time, Fred was unflappable and kept me anchored and on task. He was honest, realistic in his appraisal of my case and ethical in our dealings with the opposing attorney. I can ask for no more. I have no higher praise. Without hesitation, I continue to recommend Fred Arquilla to friends and family members needing legal assistance of any description.
Exceptional legal support for custody issues: We have gone through two lengthy custody issues over the last 2+ years with Fred Arquilla. His rich and seasoned experience provided us confidence throughout the ordeal and relieved a lot of stress. The results in the courtroom proved our choosing him as our counsel was a wise and smart decision. We are very satisfied with Fred's legal support and our professional relationship with him and his staff.
If you are looking for an attorney who will stand up for what you believe in and what you deserve, Michael Poe is the attorney for you. Michael took on my divorce case and was able to negotiate terms that would help me support my children but also allow me to get back on my feet. He always kept me informed of how my case was going. I honestly do not know what I would have done without him being in my corner.
I was very happy with Mike's service and professionalism. What I thought (and hoped) would be a 'routine' case turned out to be anything other than routine and much more time consuming - a lesson Mike prepared me for up front. He was very patient with my questions and gave me answers I could understand, a.k.a. 'non-lawyer talk'. Despite several challenges and delays and kept me informed along the way ... and ultimately helped me through a difficult time.
Michael Poe handled a divorce case for me and did an outstanding job. He always kept me informed as to what was going on and always responded expeditiously to all of my questions. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a professional attorney.
Mr. Poe is an attorney who cares about his clients, he returns phone calls and emails promptly. He takes time to explain very complicated legal terms in simple words. He understands what clients go through with their legal matters. Mr. Poe has the respect of judges whom he stands before. He is great with representation before judges, simple and to the point. My utmost recommendation is to hire Mr. Poe to take care of your legal matters and have a peace of mind.
Mr. Fred Arquilla is detailed, attentive, patient. He is a veteran and understands our community. His work brought us a positive outcome.

Mr. Arquilla and his staff were a godsend! I did not enter the divorce process lightly so when I decided to move forward, I wanted to get through it as quickly and economically as one could expect. Mr. Arquilla presented an amicable settlement agreement and plan for divorce, my ex refused to compromise. In spite of the arduous road ahead, Mr. Arquilla and his team managed to get me through the process with many of my desired outcomes met and some exceeded! Divorce isn't pleasant for anyone involved and this one took much longer than anticipated. I am grateful for the skilled, effective, professional way in which Arquilla and Poe handled my case and thankful for the outstanding service provided.
SMART, EFFECTIVE, FRIENDLY. Mr. Poe has helped me with a difficult divorce and an unpredictable ex who enjoys picking fights. He has always shown patience and understanding, responded in a timely manner, and used clever arguments to help me maintain my sanity and protect my children. He is honest when my ideas will not work, and I completely trust his legal judgement. I highly recommend Michael Poe.
I highly recommend Fred Arquilla and the legal services that he and his law firm provided. Fred listened carefully to my recounting of the issue at hand, asked detailed questions, and proposed possible resolutions, including one that could be cost saving for both parties. Unfortunately, my former spouse rejected the latter. Fred then skillfully and professionally guided me through all the preparations for our case and the subsequent court proceeding. Questions that I had were answered thoroughly and promptly. Thanks to his experience, knowledge, skill, and the professional way in which he handled my case, the resolution reached by the court was exactly what I sought. I am grateful for the outstanding service provided by Fred and his team.
Our lives have been so blessed through the service Fred Arquilla & Christina Storr have provided our family. We could never repay or thank you enough. We have been so emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually drained through all that has happened over the last few years. Your help, kindness and professional clarity has rejuvenated us. You have taken one of the largest concerns and made it into a blessing in our lives.... Thank You!

Divorce is not easy. In fact, it is painful, stressful and expensive; but with a good lawyer who understands your concerns and who is affordable, you can get through it. After being married for so many years, I was simply afraid. Eventually, I got enough courage to consider a divorce. I made an appointment and met with Mr. Arquilla, owner of the firm. He was very experienced with divorce cases, and a kind considerate person. He listened to all my concerns and made recommendations that I could understand. Mr. Arquilla, and his very professional, knowledgeable and capable staff, are warm, compassionate people who will listen to you and fight for what you deserve. Mr. Arquilla came through for me. I am so grateful for having been his client and for all the help he and his staff provided to me throughout my divorce. ~Miz Nell
I highly recommend Mr. Fred Arquilla if you need a competent, professional, experienced, responsive, and compassionate attorney. Fred's professionalism was the primary reason my divorce was finalized as quickly as possible, with a favorable outcome. His patient guidance and responsiveness were exceptional. As different situations occur, I am still discovering the brilliance of some of the terms in the separation agreement he drafted. My children and I were well represented and his humor often defused tense situations. ~Theresa G.
Mr. Arquilla and the entire staff of this law practice is the "best of the best." There are not enough superlatives to describe this entire experience. Mr. Arquilla handled my elderly mother's estate. He was thorough, professional, compassionate and gently explained everything to her throughout the entire process. He represents honor, dignity, and integrity. Without a doubt, our family "highly recommends" Mr. Arquilla and this law practice.

I went through a very drawn out, stressful divorce. I don't know where I would be right now if it wasn't for the professionalism of Michael Poe and his staff. He was always looking out for my best interests and I just knew I had nothing to worry about with him on my side. I am so grateful for all Michael did for me.
Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Mr. Fred Arquilla to anyone in need of representation in divorce proceedings. He was nothing short of amazing in all aspects of my divorce, which included dealing with a very stressed-out client. I know I posed the same questions in different formats on multiple occasions, but Mr. Arquilla always spoke to me in a kind and calm manner. He is steady, diligent, and extremely knowledgeable. Although he had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at him by the opposing party and his counsel, he handled their shenanigans with posture and professionalism. Mr. Arquilla’s rates are more then competitive. He offers a free consultation to anyone looking to retain counsel and I would encourage anyone reading this review to meet with him.
Mr. Arquilla led us through a military discharge review process, and his experience as a military attorney and judge was invaluable. He did not profess to know everything (how refreshing is that?), but spent time researching the issues and listened intently. Fred helped us navigate the complexities of the procedure and worked WITH us to produce a complete and compelling package for submission. His written statement to the Board of Review was masterful - it was clear and persuasive while referencing the appropriate sections of the Military Code and regulations. The Board granted our petition, and we will always be grateful for Fred's representation.

After my ex-wife and I separated, I contacted Fred upon a referral from a relative. Being separated from my wife and facing a potential divorce was a most trying and emotional time for me. I had no real idea of what was involved in a divorce proceeding. Fred was very understanding and empathetic to my situation, provided me with sound advice, and helped me proceed one step at a time, recognizing that reconciliation with my wife was still a hope for me. When it was apparent that a divorce was going to be the outcome, Fred guided me through each step of the process. During the six months that I was separated from my wife, Fred provided me with wise counsel, fully explaining available options, in response to developing situations/difficult interactions with my wife that ensued. In following Fred's expert legal advice as we collaborated on the "Separation and Property Settlement Agreement", I was able to minimize the financial impact of the divorce proceeding. I highly recommend Fred if you find yourself in a situation where you are facing a potential divorce and need the legal services of someone you can trust and have full confidence in their legal expertise and advice. Fred and his team are consummate professionals.
Mike is a great, patient lawyer! He ensured to voice my concerns and understood the outcome I wanted. I would hire Mike again and recommend him for anyone going through a custody situation.
Divorce is not a pleasant process, but with Fred's representation I knew I had a solid advocate who would be compassionate toward me but would also provide blunt, pragmatic advice when I needed it. He helped me through the process, and along the way demonstrated that his long experience has provided him with insights into how the "other side" will behave that I would not have received from a lesser attorney. Fred's knowledge of military processes and how the law applied to military couples was invaluable in my case as well.
