Professional Malpractice

As a professional—whether you are a lawyer, an accountant, an architect or designer, or a health care provider—you are held to the highest standard of care in delivering your work product or service. Sometimes the standards to which your clients hold you are impossible to meet. In any case, a malpractice suit filed against you is cause for considerable anguish. When you turn to us for help, you are assured that we will focus on the best possible outcome for you. You can take comfort that we are held in the highest esteem by our peers.

Our professional malpractice lawyers are Diplomates (100+ trials) and Advocates (50+ trials) in the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates. Among our ranks are Fellows in the American College of Trial Lawyers (an invitation-only association of trial lawyers meeting the highest criteria and limited to less than 1% of the practicing lawyers in the state). Our litigation group is ranked in the first band by Chambers and Partners USA, a highly regarded and research-based listing of lawyers. Benchmark Litigation also gives our litigation group its highest rating and calls us a “strong top-to-bottom law firm.”Super Lawyers lists 34 of our lawyers, including 13 litigators, and lists or has listed eight of our lawyers among the Top 50 Lawyers in Arkansas, including seven of our litigators. One of our partners is a Certified Fraud Examiner and a CPA. The interplay of his skills is invaluable in cross-examining experts and in analyzing claims for damages.
