About This Firm

Bassett Law Firm LLP is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and performs a variety of legal services in the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. The firm is included in the 2012 Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers™, and has been recognized by the national publication Corporate Counsel as a full service law firm and by Fortune magazine as "go to" litigation firm for top U.S. companies. The firm is an equal opportunity employer.

Since the firm's founding in October 1981 by the late Bill Bassett and his two sons, Woody and Tod, Bassett Law Firm LLP has enjoyed a variety of accomplishments and sustained growth - in terms of both its lawyers and clients. The foundation of Bassett Law Firm LLP has been and remains each member's commitment to the service of our clients, our profession, and the communities in which we live. Regarding its professional standing, Bassett Law Firm LLP has grown over the past quarter-century from a three-lawyer office to a firm recognized by the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal as among the largest in the rapidly-growing Northwest Arkansas region, as well as in Arkansas as a whole. Although the firm considers its primary measure of success to be the satisfaction of its clients, Bassett Law Firm LLP is grateful for various recognitions over the years, involving the work of both the firm and its particular members. Bassett Law Firm LLP has consistently been included in Corporate Counsel magazine's list of "Who Represents America's Biggest Companies?" The firm's inclusion in this exclusive list is flattering and unique-it is the only law firm on the list with its principal office located in Northwest Arkansas. The firm has also been included in Small Firm Business publication's recognition of "Small Firms with Fortune 250 Clients." Recently, Bassett Law Firm LLP was also selected by Cityscapes Metro Monthly as the area's "best law firm" in the periodical's "Best of Northwest Arkansas" edition.

Three of the firm's partners have been inducted into the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, and one partner is a member of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers - an exclusive membership of only about 500 lawyers world-wide. Partner W. Dale Garrett has been recognized in the annual editions of Best Lawyers in America and, along with partners Curtis Nebben, Gary Weeks and Shannon Fant, in the annual Mid South Super Lawyers from Arkansas.

The primary - and ultimate - objective of Bassett Law Firm LLP is to provide clients with quality legal representation. While zealously guarding its reputation for cost-effectively delivering services, Bassett Law Firm LLP is careful to understand its clients' expectations and perform on plans designed to achieve the best possible results for its clients. Possibly Bassett Law Firm LLP's proudest achievement is its reliably congenial working atmosphere. The firm is committed to cultivating an atmosphere of respect and caring among our firm members. To that end, the firm is pleased that in 2009 the United States Department of Defense recognized Bassett Law Firm LLP as one of only three employers in Arkansas to receive the "Pro Patria" award for the most exceptional support of employees who serve in the National Guard or Reserve.

With the firm having recently observed its 30th year of law practice, the members of Bassett Law Firm LLP continue to look squarely at the future and are poised to exceed the high expectations of their clients, their colleagues, their communities, and themselves.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
