Excellent representation
Mr Bennett represented me in my DWI case. I was not guilty and he was able to prove that. The day after my arrest he stayed late to meet with me after I got off work. His office staff is amazing and most helpful. Every time I called to ask a question he either answered the call or called back very quickly if busy. I felt like they all really cared about my case. He was recommended to me by a judge in another city so I knew it was a good choice. He is very knowledgeable about all things DWI. He assured me from the beginning that everything was going to be ok. I recommend him to anyone look for an excellent lawyer.

Great and compassionate attorney
Mr. Bennett is an attorney whom many could emulate! The professional work ethos projected by him is filled with integrity . I could go on but the simple fact is that if you find yourself in need of an ethical and very competent attorney, you would do well to visit him. He or his staff respond in a prompt and courteous manner, this means so much when you are overwhelmed by anxiety!

Helpful and accessible
Tommy is a great attorney and a wonderful person! He was personally involved in our case and always took my calls when in the office or returned calls personally. He is candid and realistic but always comforting. We always felt like our case was important and he took as much time as we needed to answer questions or get our thoughts. He feels like a family member wanting the best for you!

Very patient and reassuring
Mr Bennett made a very stressful situation as smooth and easy as possible. Whenever he was communicating with me he never made me feel like I was taking up his time and was always very focused on me as his client at that time and was patient with questions and I definitely appreciate his special expertise that he and his firm have sought to be as highly skilled as possible. He was very easy and comfortable to talk to and am totally satisfied with the help he provided. He came across as very down to earth and approachable which helps an already stressful situation. I'm very glad we found Mr Bennett and he and Jessica were wonderful, highly recommended but I hope to only ever need to say hi if I run into him in Kroger from here on out since my case is resolved :-)

How Tommy saved my life.
Tommy is an amazing attorney! I met with him briefly for a free consultation before deciding which attorney to hire. First, let me say he's one of the few attorney's I called that provide a free consultation. He was courteous and professional, explained my legal rights and helped me feel at ease in my case. When I left his office I told him I would follow up with him to let him know if I would retain his services. I was unfortunately arrested after I left his office. When I made it to jail my bondsmen called Tommy, who agreed to represent me in my first appearance. Tommy was there and fought to get me released on my own without affecting my previous bond. He worked tirelessly to get my case dismissed only a few weeks after he took the case. Truly there are not enough nice things I can say about Tommy! If you need the best criminal attorney then YOU should hire him.

Excellent Representation
Facing a DWI 2 charge, we met with Tommy and he spent an with us during the consultation. He asked alot of questions, was very thorough, and was up front with us on the uphill battle we faced. He explained options along the way, always covering the pros & cons, but I was very impressed that he always had a 3rd option - something that only experience and someone with his level of knowledge would know to challenge or search for. He ultimately challenged the probable cause of the stop, to which the judge agreed, and the charges were DROPPED! We can't thank Tommy enough for the work he did on our case. He is a life saver!!

Highly Recommended!
I walked in to Mr. Bennett's office for a consultation. After reviewing my case, and hearing my side, Mr. Bennett told me to "not worry about my charges" because he will "fight for me." He won! NG. The staff was knowledgeable, respectful and extremely helpful. They replied to my emails and returned my calls promptly. If you ever need a lawyer, Mr. Bennett is like a super hero-lawyer!

DWI w/ refusal
Wow---pretty much sums it all up.... I had worried about this day for almost a year.... Tara was awesome and an absolute sweetheart from the very beginning. Mr. Bennett pretty much told me what he would be able to do when he read over my citation, first visit. AND, as he had predicted...NG. I am so thankful for both Mr. Bennett and Tara....words will never express. Now, I can move on cause there will always be new challenges to face. Just so relieved this is not one of them!!!! Thank y'all so much!!!!

DWI case
Tommy Bennett was amazing! He was very helpful in answering all questions I had and educating me on everything I needed to know about my situation. He also genuinely cared about me and winning the case. I highly recommend Bennett

DWI client
Facing job termination, 6 month license suspension, heavy financial implications, etc. I had lost all hope on finding legal counsel that could successfully defend me against my DWI-1 charge until I spoke with Mr. Bennett. After multiple attorneys told me that I didn't have a leg to stand on. Mr. Bennett took my case won a necessary stay of license suspension and successfully defended me against my DWI charge and all traffic charges (3) were dismissed! Mr. Bennett and his office were always up to date on my case and kept me informed constantly over the entire 4 months. I couldn't imagine facing these unfortunate circumstances with a better legal defense team than Tommy Bennett and the team at Bennett & Williams.

Would recommend Tommy to anyone without hesitation
Tommy is one of the best there is in DWI/DUI defense. Very knowledgeable in every aspect of the law. He was very smooth and down right perfect in his courtroom performance. Tommy fought hard and beat the odds. I would highly recommend Tommy to anyone that gets a DWI/DUI in Arkansas. Even if you feel your case is unbeatable, Tommy will find a way to get the job done.

Freekin Awesome!
Tommy just litigated my DWI Case, He always kept me informed as to what was happening and he was always ready to provide a "way ahead". This proved to be invaluable for the outcome of the case and my piece of mind.

Great Lawyer- worth every penny
Tommy knows DWI law very well. He does his homework and keeps you informed. He was very good in the courtroom and my outcome was exactly as I hoped. This is all to his due diligence. His Paralegal, Sarah, is very kind and helpful and returns phone calls right away. very highly recommend this firm, and especially Tommy.

Excellent Representation, Highly Recommended
You couldn't find better DWI lawyer in Arkansas. I would highly recommend this lawyer. He is hard working, dependable & persevering. My personal experience with Mr. Bennett was exceptional. I was extremely uneducated about the judicial system, but Tommy was very informative and guided me in the right direction. I felt I had an impossible case, but Tommy fought hard and showed that he is as good as they can get by proving my innocence. If you want a lawyer you can put your trust in call Tommy Bennett.

"Tommy and I have attended several DWI training sessions together over the years. He has always impressed me with his comprehension of Arkansas DWI law and his diligence in defending his clients. We practice in different areas of the state. When I have a client or friend with a DWI in the Central Arkansas area I always send them Tommy's way."

"Tommy and I worked together on a jury trial for a client charged with DWI. I have also seen him in action on a number of cases. At all times he displayed a level of commitment, knowledge, and aptitude in DWI cases that is rarely seen. I without hesitation endorse him."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Tommy Bennett is the best DWI attorney I know in the state of Arkansas. There are a few others who are great, but none of them have the training and qualifications, as well as just the bulldog drive to fight DWIs that Tommy has. He and his partner are the only attorneys at present in the state who have been certified in DRE (Drug Recognition Evaluation or Expert) cases, and they are uniquely qualified to fight DWI-drugs cases. I handle criminal defense, but when it comes to DWI, Tommy is the person I refer my friends and family to. I highly endorse him."

"I have had the privilege to work with Attorney Bennett at advanced seminars related to DUI defense. Atty. Bennett possesses the unique knowledge and trial skills to effectively defend his clients. If you believe in your case then Atty. Bennett is your man."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Other
"I met Tommy at a National DUI College training and then again at Gerry Spence's Trial College. Being a member/graduate of either of these select group of attorneys shows a tremendous committment to his profession and has to be acknowledged for the gift that it is to his clients. He sacrificed time from his family, practice and financial gain was clearly not why he has taken his level of training and experience to a level surpassed by few and possibly any in his state. If you want a lawyer that knows DUI/DWI law and defense inside and out and that has taken the time to develop his trial techniques to the 100th degree, this is the man/firm you need to retain; no if's, ands or buts!"

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Tommy Bennett's reputation precedes him! --I know him and I practice in Tennessee! -As a fellow DUI Defense Lawyer, Tommy recently provided me with some of the very best ideas of how to successfully defend a specific set of facts in many DUI cases. He has a vast knowledge base and his ideas on how to succesfully cross examine officers are truly remarkable! --So remarkable, that I have incorporated many of Tommy's ideas into my own practice. --If you want a true DUI defender, on your side. Hire Tommy Bennett. He is truly a dedicated and commmited lawyer, dedicated to fighting your case, --not pleading your case!"
DUI and DWI Attorney | Sep 02
Relationship: Friend
"Tommy Bennett is THE lawyer you want if you get a DUI. Even as a criminal defense attorney in Washington State, I would call Tommy with any legal or technical questions surrounding DUI's. He has a wonderful outlook and sense of humor that make working with him an extremely enjoyable experience. Thank you for your consultation Tommy!!"

We live in different states, but many of our DUI/DWI issues are similar. He has helped me with several difficult and technical issues in this area of law. I consult with him often. You should to."
