Thurman W. Arnold, III, CFLS
Mediator and Attorney

Thurman W. Arnold is the founder of Desert Family Mediation Services. He is a Palm Springs' native and was admitted to the Bar in 1982. He is based in Palm Springs but available in high asset and complex cases to assist parties elsewhere, and exclusively handles family law and related matters. He is a Certified Family Law Specialist (State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization). He frequently serves as a Judge Pro Tem of the Riverside County Superior Court in Indio, and is a family sciences student part time at Loma Linda University.

Mr. Arnold is a prolific writer and legal commentator, and has created a number of websites that have significant public value as a free source of important information and inspiration for people who find themselves enmeshed in the crisis of relationship breakup. He speaks to what divorcing couples and separating domestic partners need to know to protect their legal interests, but his writings and his mediation practice is devoted to helping people explore peacemaking alternatives to relation conflicts. There are numerous links to his work throughout this site, but you may find his California Family Law Blog of particular interest if you have questions about a huge number of legal topics.

When Mediation is not an option, Thurman Arnold is available to represent family law clients in litigation throughout Southern California with uncommon intelligence, vigor, and devotion.
