When you or a loved one is charged with a crime you need to move fast and be careful. I recommend you talk to a few attorneys before you carefully select one. Not all law firms are the same. There are only a handful of law firms dedicated to criminal defense in Arkansas. At Bowman Lewis we have the experience and drive to effectively fight for your rights in the criminal defense arena. We favor an aggressive approach to criminal defense, but understand how to be diplomatic without being weak. We find the challenge of working complex cases rewarding. When it comes to investigations, we put the time in. One of the most important things to consider when you select an attorney is communication. Can you talk to them? Do you understand them? If you don't, will the Judge? We are not too important to take you or your loved one's phone call and set up a case evaluation. As lawyers sometimes it can be tricky to explain complex legal issues, but we do our best. We encourage all prospective clients to read more about what happens when you get charged by the State.
Selecting your attorney is a decision that will impact the rest of your life. Not all lawyers spend their time in the courtroom. In fact, many have never seen one or are rarely there. Finding a trial lawyer that will fight your rights and not just convince you to take the first offer is not as easy as it should be. Prosecutors are always at the courts, and they know which attorneys are easy to push around or which ones they can force to take the plea. Unfortunately, if you hire an attorney with a weak reputation then your options are limited. If your attorney is not both skilled and respected, then you may be treated poorly by the court and/or the prosecutor. At Bowman Lewis Law we do not try to practice every area of the law. We only take certain types of cases and strive to be respected and effective in our limited fields. The Prosecutors and Judges know we are willing to go to trial, and I know that matters for my clients.
We know from experience that police reports do not always tell the truth. When this happens, you must fight to prove the truth. When you are charged with a crime, you must decide whether to just give up or fight for your rights. Not all rights are free. Not everything is fair. This is life. At this firm we deal with the real world. We don't feed you lines or try to make your situation sound better than it is. We give you the facts, straight up. You will never get a promise on case results from us, because that would be a breach of attorney ethics. I expect the same level of honesty from my clients, because I need to know to help. We practice criminal defense because we see the abuse in the system. Someone has to stand up against it.
We take cases around the entire State of Arkansas. We work from Texarkana to Osceola and Lake Village to Rogers handling issues from simple misdemeanors to complex felonies where life sentences are on the table. We also take cases when we see major civil rights violations or injuries. Please take time to read about our services and do not hesitate to ask questions. Our aim is to be accessible and understanding to our current and future clients.
With offices in Little Rock and Mountain Home, we offer fair rates and payment plans. When you call the office you deal with an attorney directly instead of an assistant. We answer the phone 24/7 (Please, for emergencies only.) We do not use an answering service.
