About me

My name is Shane Ethridge. When I'm not practicing law I enjoy hunting, fishing, hanging out with my family, and watching the Razorbacks.  Ever since I started practice I have been a defense lawyer and have never entertained the idea of being a prosecutor because I want to represent people and not an overreaching State.  I also help people in family law, divorce, and custody situations because I enjoy helping people get through difficult times. The remainder of my practice focuses on accident cases and civil litigation.

    Mr. Ethridge has a scientific approach to DWIs that other attorneys just haven't caught onto in the Hot Springs area. I recommend him without hesitation.
