You Are Innocent Until You Are Proven Guilty by a Court of Law

Regardless of what you have been told by the police or the attorney general’s office, there is no such thing as a “slam dunk” case. No one can predict what a jury will say or do. The prosecutor’s office must prove that you are guilty in a court of law. If you remain silent and you demand your right to have an attorney, you will have a far better chance of defending yourself. Rees Law Firm is ready to develop the best defense strategy possible for your case and help you fight for an acquittal or reduced charges with lesser penalties such as fines, jail time, or shorter probation.

Domestic Violence Charges in Arkansas

Arkansas pursues domestic violence charges very strongly, so it is important to hire the right lawyer to defend you if you have been accused of or charged with domestic violence. A shove or throwing an object can easily result in arrest and charges, and you must take the charges seriously. More often than not, the state will charge domestic violence as a felony, which can result in extensive prison time and huge fines.

Especially if you have been falsely accused by a relative, former partner, or through the process of divorce, you are likely extremely stressed and frustrated about the charges you’re facing. Our attorney will help you sort through the process with composure and will build you the strongest defense possible.

DWI/DUI Charges in Arkansas

Our law firm regularly defends clients charged with DWI or DUI. In Arkansas, the standards for blood alcohol content while driving are:

  • Adult 21 years or older – Cannot drive when BAC is .08 or greater
  • Person less than 21 years of age – Cannot drive when BAC is .02 or greater
  • Commercial driver – Cannot drive when BAC is .04 or greater

However, a prosecutor does not need a failed BAC test to achieve a conviction. Your BAC is just one way of proving intoxication, and prosecutors have a number of means of proving that you were legally intoxicated and not able to drive. DWI/DUI charges cannot be dismissed or reduced by way of a plea deal in Arkansas.Therefore, it is so important to hire an attorney in these situations. You can only deal with the charges by way of a guilty plea or a full trial.

Felony Crimes in Arkansas

The Rees Law Firm has significant experience defending people charged with felony crimes. We have successfully defended people charged with the following types of crimes (among others):

  • DUI/DWI with three prior convictions
  • Drug possession
  • Aggravated robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft of property of a certain value
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Murder

The majority of these crimes (with the exceptions of rape/sexual assault and murder) can also be charged as misdemeanors but will be upgraded to felonies if certain circumstances are present in the case. For instance, if someone is found with a small amount of marijuana, he or she might be charged with a misdemeanor. Conversely, if found with a large amount of marijuana, the same person will likely be charged with a felony.

Felonies carry very serious consequences if you are convicted, and you need the best lawyer to make sure you present a strong defense. Prison time, huge fines, and valuable rights are all on the line in these cases, and you need the right lawyer to stand up for you.
