    Excellent Attorney
    -"Debra Reece"

    I used Ms. Reece’s bar setting services a year ago and was simply amazed. She was knowledgeable about everything I asked during my consultation and provided an unbeatable price when I signed her on as my attorney.
    She kept me well informed from day one through the pending of the court date and even gave me advice once she won my case. I nervously called her through the pending time period and she answered, our returned my call with a respectful caring perspective each time.
    Ms. Reece gave me advice as to how to act and what to wear in court and taught me the responsibilities I needed as a defendant.
    I had Charges of driving on a suspended license, no insurance, and not using my lights while driving in the rain. Debra had the charges dropped to driving without insurance and had my jail sentence suspended. This would have cost me my job and a lot more if I had been sentenced to the normal penalty of 10 days in jail with fine. Thankfully it was reduced to a low fine and the dropped charges are not on my record.
    I hope to never need the use of an attorney again but will call Debra Reece in a moment’s notice if I do. I Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good, trustworthy Attorney at an excellent cost.

    From the moment I talked with Debra on the phone, I knew we had found the right person. We live out of state and were desperate for an attorney we could trust to walk us through unfamiliar territory. The first time we spoke, she personally answered her phone at 6 pm. She told me about herself and what she would do to represent us, but there was no pressure to hire her. She patiently and thoroughly answered all of my many questions. She was very professional, honest, and took our situation very seriously; but at the same time she was exceptionally personable, likable and made me feel at ease during a very emotional and scary time.

    Debra was efficient and detailed as she gave us a quick lesson in Arkansas law! She sent us all the information we needed, let us know what paper work needed to be done, and was good to follow up with phone calls and emails. Every step of the way she helped us understand what was going on. Without sugar-coating, she was specific and honest about best and worst case scenarios. When there was a decision to make, she gave us all of the information we needed to make it.

    One thing that really impressed me is that she knew the personalities of the county judges, prosecuting attorneys, and other attorneys. Watching her interact with them, I could tell she had a respectful, professional working relationship with them.

    I sincerely mean it when I say "she went the extra mile"... both literally and figuratively! She drove many miles on our account during the duration of our ordeal. She never acted like it was out of her way, even though I know it was. She treated us like we were her only client, even though we weren't. Her services went well beyond what was required.

    She did an AMAZING job representing our interests and we got AMAZING results! I have the feeling she may have been seen as being a little "pushy" with people in the system, but the way I see it, she was fighting for us! She took our case to heart, had a full understanding of it, and presented our situation in a sincere and passionate way. She not only was our attorney, she was also our guide, friend and counselor.

    The final outcome of our case could not have been better. I would highly recommend Debra Reece as a trustworthy, hard-working, knowledgable attorney! We loved her, and feel grateful and blessed for having found her.

    • I recommend Debra Reece.
    • I hired Debra more than 3 years ago.
    • Debra handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Our case involved a complicated family matter which required us to intervene in a situation with a minor and attempt to pull them from a destructive environment. Debra was knowledgeable, professional and very aggressive in our case. She worked very quickly to help us get this person out of a harmful situation and into one where they could thrive and grow.

    Without representation, we would not have been able to help this young person. We are very thankful for her assistance during and following this matter.

  5. Very Knowledgeable & Dedicated Attorney With Tenacity and Excellent Skills.

    • I recommend Debra Reece.
    • I hired Debra more than 3 years ago.
    • Debra handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I had spoken to several Attorneys in the local area and one of them suggested Ms. Reece out of Russellville. I drove the longer distance to meet her and after explaining my situation and what occurred, I was instantly impressed with the knowledge she had and the enthusiasm to win my case. I chose her to represent me immediately and was not disappointed in my choice. She knew the law and all the landmark cases to support her reasoning. She filed a motion to suppress the evidence because of illegal entry and had a bulldog approach in questioning the Detectives and Officers involved. Setting them up in lie after lie proving my rights had been violated. In her Brief to the Judge after the Suppression Hearing, she restated several cases that made my case. The Judge had no choice but to throw out the evidence.. And my case was thrown out. I would recommend her to anyone...

  6. Really great lawyer!

    • I recommend Debra Reece.
    • I hired Debra 1-3 years ago.
    • Debra handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Debra Reece represented me last year when I was going through my divorce. It was a very difficult time, and I had no idea how everything worked, so I was very grateful to have someone so understanding and patient represent me. She also understood the tight budget of a single mother going through a divorce, and she came up with a payment plan that fit my needs. I've recommended her to numerous other people. I was so pleased with the way she handled my case. I got alimony and custody of my daughter, and I couldn't have done it without her! She's amazing! Also, I could tell she was really busy, but she and her assistant were really nice about contacting me regularly and answering my (sometimes many) questions via email and phone. If you need a lawyer, she will do whatever she can to help you, and she will make you feel like her most important client. I highly recommend her.
