The lawyers in our firm include former deputy prosecutors, people who have worked on the other side, and understand the strategies and tactics the prosecutor will use to try and convict you. Even though you are only paying one legal fee if you hire our firm, you are receiving the benefit of having a team of lawyers with over 100 years of combined legal experience. Doug Norwood is our team leader and has input on all cases that need his knowledge and experience.  There are many cases where several of our attorneys review a case and give input.  The old saying “two heads are better than one” is very appropriate in the area of criminal defense.  Our team puts our heads together to come up with ideas that will help our clients.   The attorneys on our criminal defense legal team have a lot of experience in criminal cases and they all aggressively look for ways to win cases and fight to get great outcomes for our clients. We fight hard for our clients and would love to help you!

The consequences of conviction can be costly! You potentially face jail time, fines, court costs, and  even the loss of your job. Norwood & Norwood has either won or negotiated dismissals for many thousands of charges for our clients and most of our clients NEVER GO TO JAIL. Let us see if we can do that for you!  Your first visit with us to discuss your case is absolutely FREE, and you are under no obligation to hire us.  If you decide to hire us, we offer reasonable rates, payment plans, and accept VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER.

We have proven many thousands of times that,  just because you have been charged with a crime, doesn’t mean you will be convicted of that crime. If you have the opportunity to hire one of the best DWI / DUI and criminal defense law firms in Northwest Arkansas at a reasonable rate you can afford, why wouldn’t you?
