Norwood & Norwood, P.A. has defended thousands of misdemeanors and felonies over the last 30 plus years. Our NWA criminal defense legal team uses that experience, and problems we find with the prosecutor’s evidence, to work toward fantastic outcomes for our clients in Washington County, Benton County, Madison County and Carroll County. Those may include winning your case, getting dismissal of charges, keeping you out of jail, keeping charges off your record, keeping fines low, etc. We have handled over 35,000 criminal cases, including:

Our firm has either won or negotiated dismissals for more than 25,000 charges for our clients and most of our clients never go to jail. We pride ourselves with getting GREAT RESULTS for our clients. Let us see if we can do that for you! 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. Our team, which includes former prosecutors, has nearly 100 years of combined experience. That is why we were voted Best of NWA Criminal Lawyer by the NWA Democrat-Gazette and have hundreds of 5 star reviews!

We fight hard for our clients and we would love to help you!

About Attorney Doug Norwood

Attorney Doug Norwood, the founder of the firm and lead trial attorney, has been nominated and voted by his peers as a “SuperLawyer” for the Mid-South Region for the last ten consecutive years. In addition, on two occasions, he has been named by the Arkansas Times, as one of the “Best Criminal Law/DWI Lawyers in Arkansas.”

Doug also was named the “Champion of Justice” by the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and has been the recipient of the Arkansas Bar Association’s “Lawyer Community Legacy Award.” He has also received the coveted Martindale-Hubbell AV-Rating, which sets him apart as one of the Preeminent Lawyers in his field of criminal defense and DWI/DUI law.

In addition, Doug maintains the highest ranking an attorney can achieve on, one of the leading lawyer referral sites in the country. He also was one of the founding members in establishing the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and has served as the President of that association.

Not All Attorneys are Created Equal!

Let us give an example using doctors. If you have a heart attack do you want to use your family doctor, or the doctor that your uncle used for his sprained ankle, or a doctor who just got out of medical school? OR do you want a heart surgeon that has saved thousands of heart attack patients over decades and who stays up to date on all of the latest techniques for heart disease and has been a heart doctor for many, many years?

We are like the heart surgeon. At Norwood & Norwood, P.A. we only do criminal defense and related cases and we have been doing just that for over 30 years. We don’t do divorces, we don’t do bankruptcies, we don’t do personal injury cases, we just do criminal defense and occasionally sue the police for violating your rights. That means we study JUST that. We focus on JUST that. And that’s why we’re great at what we do.

Ready to Protect Your Rights & Future Today

Doug is our team leader. He studies criminal cases and new developments in the law daily This allows him to be on top of new cutting edge theories that help our clients. By hiring our legal team at Norwood & Norwood, P.A., you have all of that for a reasonable fee. Our job is to always look for a way to win your case and to minimize the damage to you.

We want to help you.
