Summary

Kurt Arnold is a powerful force inside and outside the courtroom. Since founding Arnold & Itkin in 2004, he has had a hand in recovering billions of dollars for clients across the U.S. who have suffered harm through no fault of their own. Just last year, Kurt recovered over $1 billion for injured clients. He believes in upholding his clients’ rights and will face off against any opponent—no matter the odds. This attitude and his incredible wins have secured him a place as one of the country’s top trial attorneys.

Kurt set national records for the largest settlement for an individual burned at a worksite, for an offshore fatality, for an undocumented worker, and for families affected by a plant explosion. He is passionate about what he does because he recognizes the importance of holding negligent companies accountable for their wrongdoing. These results signify lives that have been changed for the better after people experienced terrible injuries and losses that threatened everything they knew.

Through the years, Kurt has been recognized time and again by national publications and his peers for his exceptional work across his practice areas. The National Law Journal has recognized Kurt numerous times for his record-setting results and named Arnold & Itkin to the country’s Top 50 Elite Trial Lawyer list. The Best Lawyers in America® recognized Kurt for his work in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs and Admiralty and Maritime Law. He was named one of the 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers and one of the 500 Leading Lawyers in America by Lawdragon, and in 2019 he joined the esteemed, invitation-only group of the top 100 plaintiff trial lawyers in the U.S.: The Inner Circle of Advocates.
