For over a quarter of a century, former deputy prosecutor Doug Norwood has devoted his legal career to defending the people of Northwest Arkansas against criminal charges. He started his firm as a solo attorney that did all kinds of legal cases. Doug quickly decided that DWI / DUI and criminal defense were the only kinds of cases he wanted to handle. He chose not to do bankruptcies, divorces, personal injury cases, etc. Over the last 25 plus years, he has hand-picked a team of top litigation attorneys who he leads. Mr. Norwood and his team have defended more than 25,000 criminal cases, including more than 8,000 DWI / DUI cases.
For five consecutive years, Mr. Norwood has been nominated and voted by his peers as a “Super Lawyer” for the Mid-South Region. In addition, on two occasions, he has been named by the Arkansas Times, as one of the “Best Criminal Law/DWI Lawyers in Arkansas.” Doug also was named the “Champion of Justice” by the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and has been the recipient of the Arkansas Bar Association’s “Lawyer Community Legacy Award.” Mr. Norwood has also received the coveted Martindale-Hubbell AV-Rating, which sets him apart as one of the Preeminent Lawyers in his field of criminal defense and DWI / DUI law.
