About me

Brad J. Williams grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is a graduate of Catholic High School, Hendrix College, and the William H. Bowen School of Law. He is also a graduate of the Trial Practice Institute of the National Criminal Defense College (NCDC) at Mercer University School of Law.


 


Almost the entirety of Brad’s practice is devoted to drunk driving and criminal defense. Brad is a trained field sobriety test practitioner and instructor. He was the first lawyer in Arkansas to complete the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course and the DRE Overview Course for lawyers. Additionally, he has received years of extensive training in pharmacology, toxicology, and forensic science.


 


For every year since 2010, Brad has been named a Mid-South SuperLawyers Rising Star. Little Rock Soirée magazine has named Brad among the “Best Lawyers” in Little Rock every year since 2012. Brad enjoys passing on his knowledge to others by teaching other attorneys at various educational events throughout the year.


 


He is a faculty member of the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) and a founding member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association (DUIDLA). He is also a member of the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (AACDL), the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association (ATLA), and the Arkansas Bar Association.


 


Recently, in 2016, Brad became the first and only lawyer in the State of Arkansas to be designated by the American Chemical Society - Chemistry and the Law Division as a "Forensic Lawyer Scientist."

  • Marcos M. Garza

    "Brad" Williams is a true DUI warrior. I had the distinct pleasure of getting to know Brad at a recent Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor Course. Brad is dedicated to obtaining the very best training and education possible in order to obtain the very best results for his clients. His knowledge of DUI is almost unlimited and he is dedicated to defending his clients cases -- as opposing to the common practice of walking them in and pleading them guilty. If you want to fight your case with a skilled and knowledgable lawyer, Brad is your man!

  • Debra Joan Cheatham Reece

    In both DWI and immigration law, Brad Williams is one of the finest attorneys I know. He and his partners have the best DWI firm in the state. He has been trained and certified in field sobriety testing, testing on BAC datamaster and Intoximeter machines, DRE (Drug Recognition Evaluation or Expert), and all areas of how to challenge the state's case in DWI/DUI cases. In addition to that, he is very knowledgeable about immigration law, and particularly understands the intersection of criminal and immigration law, which is important for anyone who is undocumented or who is a legal permanent resident, and runs into trouble in the criminal justice system. He is a dedicated trial attorney, scholar, and is a gentleman with the highest integrity, and I highly endorse him.
