Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense

Every criminal charge, whether a misdemeanor or felony, requires immediate action. Your rights can be affected as soon as seven days after your arrest, if not immediately, and your attorney needs to take action as soon as possible. Though criminal charges can be intimidating and confusing, don't put off the problem until your court date.

Criminal charges can have long-lasting consequences on your personal and professional life for years to come. Many times, you only have one chance to hire the right attorney. If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, you need an experienced attorney to help you get the best results possible on your case. The attorneys at Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan have more than 90 years of combined legal experience defending clients in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the surrounding area. We will examine your case, explain your rights and options and fight to get you the best outcome possible.

Handling A Wide Range Of Criminal Defense Matters

Our lawyers can provide strong criminal defense solutions for clients charged with:

  • DWI or DUI - including first offenses and multiple offenses, and related charges;
  • Drug crimes - both state and federal;
  • Federal and white-collar crimes - including identity theft, fraud, embezzlement, racketeering and related crimes;
  • Traffic offenses;
  • Violent crimes;
  • Sex crimes;
  • Internet crimes;
  • Domestic abuse; and
  • Probation violations.

Prosecutors generally offer plea deals on almost every criminal case. Our attorneys prepare every case in anticipation of going to trial and having our client found not guilty. This approach ensures that we find any weaknesses in the prosecution's case and achieve the best results for our clients. Don't be tempted to take the first plea deal that is offered without having an experienced attorney prepare the case.
