I entered private defense in 2015 after serving as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for several years in Pulaski County. During that time, I spent almost every day in court, which I now consider my office away from the office. I developed confidence and, most importantly, learned what it takes to beat a criminal charge.

Before law school, I graduated from UAMS with a degree in Cardio-Pulmonary Care and worked as a respiratory therapist. And before that I attended the University of Arkansas where I was a member of the Razorback football team.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney in Arkansas !!!
I hired Mr. Clow to help me through a really hard time when I was facing a DWI and multiple felonies for drugs. He never stopped fighting for me. He was able to get all the evidence suppressed and he got my name cleared. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of real help with a criminal issue in Arkansas!

Best attorney in Arkansas!!
Mr. Clow's hard work allowed for my 22 year old son to have a serious felony charge dropped down to misdemeanor. What could have been 10 years in federal prison with an enormous fine, ended up being a sealed misdemeanor with one year probation. Thanks to Mr. Clow, my son now has a second chance for his future. Mr. Clow understood the severity of the charges, while still understanding good people sometimes make mistakes. He worked tirelessly, in collaboration with the prosecutor's office, to have these charges reduced due to being a first time offender. His background as a former prosecutor makes him so valuable as a defense attorney. I am beyond thankful for his hard work and dedication to his clients. Not only did he explain the entire process to my son along the way, but he also kept my husband and I aware of all aspects of the case. Degen wasn't just our attorney during the process, he was also a friend to our family. I highly recommend allowing him to handle your legal needs.

Best Lawyer Ever!!
I was looking at some pretty serious charges and Degen was able to point out multiple holes in the prosecutions case. He got all my charges dropped and was great to work with!

Deserves ZERO STARS
Degen did not do what was promised. Hired this attorney to show up to court & represent me so I wouldn’t have to take off work. Was notified last minute that I had to be in court on court date. I would never have hired him if I wanted to go to court. Waste of $500. I found out the morning of court I didn’t even have to show up. $250 paid to court & im on probation for 6 months. Degan could have done this without me, like I did it without him. Now I’m out $750.
