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.

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.
