About me

The Overton Firm is devoted to helping small businesses, large corporate firms and individuals in the design and construction industry.


We serve start-up firms, emerging businesses and established companies, whether operating as sole proprietors, partnerships, limited liability companies, or corporations.


Our services range from providing general counseling on personal and business matters to highly specialized, sometimes nearly unique, services for design and construction industry participants.


Unfortunately in today's economy there has been an increase in issues related to the payment for labor and/or materials used for construction. This economic reality has caused a considerable increase in lien claims for non-payment of funds.
Recent revisions to the Arkansas Lien Law has made it more important than ever to have an attorney who is familiar with the entire lien process to assist in either the filing of or defending against construction liens in Arkansas to protect yourself.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Caution
    issued in AR, 2014

    updated

    A caution means that an attorney did something wrong, but may still practice law. The attorney was cautioned in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    J.’s comment: “An opposing attorney filed several pleadings and didn't forward a copy to this office and this caused my office to miss a filing deadline. The result was no fine and $100 in costs being assessed.”
