Areas of Practice

General Civil Practice

General civil practices are separated into criminal and civil law. We represent those who are being prosecuted by the government and are subject to prison or fines. Civil law consists of human affairs that are not punishable by the government. These cases include negligence, defamation, breach of contract, real property titles, wills, and more.

Personal Injury

We speak on the behalf of those and their family members who have been injured, hurt, or killed due to the carelessness of others.  Personal injury includes car wrecks, injuries from falling, riverboat injuries, barge injuries, factory machinery injuries, and medication related defects.

Auto Accident

Car wrecks cause serious bodily harm or even death to about 2 million people a year. Don’t go through insurance companies that create even more pain and suffering for those who have been in car accidents.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are typically more dangerous due to the size, weight, and destruction they can cause. About every 1 in 9 deaths are correlated to an accident with a commercial vehicle.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one can be very stressful on family members. Financial issues and expenses are even more overbearing. If you have lost a loved one due to carelessness contact us for representation to ease your mourning.

Agricultural Law

Arkansas is a large agricultural provider. Arkansas agriculture law is developing and vast. We represent cases involving land use, environmental protection, financing, water use, water rights, and construction.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice is also known as medical negligence. Medical Malpractice takes place when trusted professionals like a nurse or a doctor fail to provide medical treatment to the best of their ability that results in critical injury to the patient.


Condemnation occurs when private property is seized for public use. Local, state, and federal government bodies can take private land and should compensate owners with living arrangements.

Business Litigation

Business Litigation law is complex and starts when a complaint is filed with a court or administrative agency. Typically involving searching documents, consulting experts, investigation, interviewing witnesses, and more; it’s important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
