We Will Defend You from the Moment of Your Arrest
If you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and the surrounding area, the Law Office of David L. Powell will provide you with a comprehensive, tailored defense strategy. Our work begins as soon as you are arrested, and we will represent you at the arraignment. This is the initial court hearing during which you are formally charged and bail is arranged. We will work to secure your release so that you can return to your normal routine while we build your case.
A successful criminal defense strategy begins with conducting a thorough investigation and collecting evidence. We will obtain and review a copy of the police report to determine the facts and uncover any errors that may have been committed by law enforcement. For example, the arresting officer may have failed to read you your rights or the police may have obtained evidence without a search warrant. We will also identify and interview all relevant witnesses and determine if there is evidence of your innocence or any mitigating factors. In addition, we will conduct pre-trial discovery, prepare and file all of the necessary legal motions, and vigorously defend you at trial.
The Law Office of David L. Powell, PLC serves clients in Fort Smith, Van Buren, Greenwood, Barling, Alma, and throughout the states of Arkansas and Oklahoma.
