Jay Arnesen: Retired Police Officer Turned Defense Attorney, Protect Your Rights

In his fifth year of service as a police officer, at the age of 26, Mr. Arnesen was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident that almost claimed his life while responding to a 911 call. As a result of the accident, he received over 400 stitches to his face and head, tore a tendon in his left hand, broke a vertebrae in his lower back, and sustained partial vision loss in his left eye. After months of rehabilitation and follow-up surgery, Mr. Arnesen recovered from his injuries but sadly had to take an early retirement from the police department. However, early retirement allowed Mr. Arnesen to pursue his lifelong goal of becoming a criminal defense attorney.

Since then, Mr. Arnesen has spent his life dedicating his time to citizens who have been charged with criminal or DUI offenses. His credentials include the following:

  • Super Lawyers, Rising Star: 2012, 2013, 2014
