About This Firm

About This Firm
Northwest Arkansas DWI and Criminal Defense Lawyer Doug Norwood

My name is Doug Norwood, and I am offering my help to defend your case. I used to be a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney which gives me the ability to understand how the Prosecutor will work to try and convict you. For over 20 years all I have done is defend people charged with criminal and traffic offenses and protect their civil rights. Look at the enclosed list to see a small sample of the many cases in which we have gotten favorable results for our clients.


On a large number of these cases, we have either: (1) Won our client's case at trial (2) gotten a Dismissal of our client's case (3) gotten our client No Jail Time (4) kept the charge Off Our Client's Record (5) kept our client from losing their driver's license (6) gotten our client's charges Reduced to a Lesser Charge or (7) Several of the above.


I lead my very successful Criminal Defense Team which includes Cathy Norwood, Cody Dowden, and Alison Lee. One reason we are so successful is because our Criminal Defense Team has former Deputy Prosecuting Attorneys who understand how the other side operates. We examine your case to make sure that the police did their job properly: did the police have jurisdiction over you?; did the police arrest you properly?; did the police read you your rights?; did the police do the search properly if you or your property were searched?; did the police handle the evidence in the proper way?; and did the police give you a phone call?

We turn police mistakes into victories for our clients. Let us see if we can do the same for you!

No lawyer can guarantee the results of a case. However, we do promise that if we cannot find a way to win your case, we will try to MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE TO YOU! For instance, some of the ways we may be able to MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE TO YOU are: (1) getting your charges dismissed (2) getting your charges reduced to a lesser charge (3) keeping you out of jail (4) keeping the charge off of your record (5) keeping your fines low (6) keeping you from losing your driver's license (7) arranging for you to pay any fines out over a period of time rather than all on your court date and (8) keeping you from having to go to court.

There are two main ways attorneys attract new clients. For some, it is low fees. For others, it is a good reputation with high skills to match. We have a good reputation with high skills to match AND reasonable fees. A large percentage of our clients are referred by happy clients and by other attorneys who know our reputation. Our site has a list of questions that we encourage you to ask if you visit with any other attorney. The purpose of the list of questions is to help you decide which attorney to hire to fight for the best result on your case. We are very good at what we do and we believe that if you look at OUR answers to the list of questions and the quotes from judges, attorneys, and prosecutors below, you will agree.

They clearly explained the process. There was very little for me to do. Kept the ticket off my record. Friendly and easy to talk to.

I got myself into a little bit of trouble that was going to end up costing me my license, job, and alot of time and money I didnt have. I hired doug norwood to help me through this tough time and was extremely pleased with his work. Not only was he very helpful throughout the entire process but he won my case for me!!!! I dont know what i would have done without his help. If your ever in trouble I would without a doubt hire doug norwood to help you like he did for me, he was a great person that went above and beyond what was expected

It cost more than others I know have paid for a better outcome than I received. Needed to keep a ticket off my driving record for insurance purposes. A simple speeding ticket cost me $600 in fees and fines. Most people I spoke to said they have paid far less for the same service at other firms. Would have been nice to know this before I agreed to hire them. I expected a better outcome for my money, but they did get the job done. Everyone I dealt with was professional and friendly.
