Little Rock Criminal Defense Law Firm Fights for Your Rights

Courtroom-tested lawyers defending accused Arkansans since 1994

Since our founding in 1994, James Law Firm has successfully represented thousands of clients in criminal defense cases in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas. Our aggressive litigators are committed to protecting your due process rights and defending your freedom. Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or capital murder, your case is important to us. James Law Firm will not be bullied by government authorities. We have the experience, skill and resources to challenge every element of the case against you and to force the prosecution to prove its case to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt. Even if the facts are against you, we can often secure a positive outcome by fighting for a reduction in charges, entry into a diversionary program or more lenient sentencing.

These factors make our Little Rock law firm the right choice for you

James Law Firm is exclusively focused on criminal law cases. Every lawyer at our firm is ready to find solutions to your legal problems. The benefits of working with our firm include:

  • Aggressive litigation — Our team features accomplished trial advocates and appellate lawyers who are experienced in handling cases all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. We provide a consistent level of excellence throughout the cases we handle and the persistence required during appeals. We are one of the few criminal defense firms certified to defend people charged with capital offenses in Arkansas. We take this responsibility seriously and strive to win freedom for the defendant in every case.
  • Personalized attention — James Law Firm is one of the largest criminal defense firms in Arkansas, with all the resources you expect from a large firm. But we also provide personal, individualized service to every client. When you retain our services, you work one-on-one with a lawyer, and we offer 24-hour availability.
  • Reasonable fees — Our team approach helps keep your legal fees down. For most cases we offer fixed-fee arrangements.

Your choice of legal representation can be the single biggest factor affecting the outcome of your case, so it’s important to select a proven legal team that is determined to fight for you.

Area of Practice

Experience with a wide range of criminal charges throughout Arkansas

At James Law Firm, we are prepared to defend you or a family member against a wide range of criminal charges, including:

  • DUI/DWI — We will work hard to preserve your driver’s license and your reputation if you have been charged with a DUI/DWI.
  • Violent crimes — From assault and battery to capital murder, we have the experience to fight the charges against you for violent crimes.
  • Drug crimes — Whether you’ve been charged with simple possession or federal trafficking, we know how to challenge the prosecution’s case to create reasonable doubt in drug crime cases.
  • Sex crimes — The prospect of having to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life is chilling. You can rely on our firm to do everything we can to prevent this from happening.
  • White collar crimes — Nonviolent economic crimes, cybercrimes and criminal conspiracies garner aggressive prosecution. We match the authorities’ determination and resources every step of the way in cases involving white collar crimes.
