Do I Need A Criminal Defense Lawyer?

 Patrick J. Benca Has Joined Our Pride.


  • Have you been asked to come “just answer a few questions” down at the station?
  • Have you been arrested?
  • Do you think you still might be?

Orange isn’t your color.

We won’t ask if you did it. Like the headline says at the top of the page, just because you did it, doesn’t mean you’re guilty. That is to say, your guilt — or innocence — isn’t relevant to the question of whether the State can prove its case under the law. 

Even if you are completely innocent, do not talk to the police before you talk to a lawyer. Why? Police interviewers are very good at what they do — and you may innocently say something that will come back to haunt you later.

We can help with DUI/DWI, felonies, misdemeanors, State and Federal courts, appeals, probation, sealing records and more.

Yes, you really do need a lawyer.

Many innocent people are serving time in prison, because mistakes happen. Criminal charges are extremely serious and missteps in the process often cannot be repaired. You need an aggressive, experienced, and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to guide you, and as soon as possible.

Our job is to know the legal system inside and out, and to use our legal skills to get the best outcome for you — whether that’s through negotiation or in the courtroom. 

Lion Legal is your Arkansas criminal defense law firm.

Our attorneys are experts in criminal defense law, and are here for you with straight talk, predictable fees, and superior services.

We promise to tell you what the most likely outcome is up front, and to be open and transparent in our communications with you until your case is resolved.

Most of our clients spend between $2,500+ and $5,000+ on their criminal-related legal issues — which is less than half the average cost of a criminal defense lawyer in Arkansas. Misdemeanor cases start at $2,500+ and felonies start at $3,500+. 

Our approach to practicing law is revolutionizing the way law firms deliver legal services. Call Lion Legal today.
