Mark actually listened to what I had to say, never tried to cut me off or prejudge my case, was willing to look at any material I brought to support my position.. absorbed what my situation was.. I must have talked to 6 or 7 attorneys in the last few months... most are only interested in telling you what their fee's will be, not what they think they can do for you..
What a breath of fresh air. Open and candid, not any sign of ego, so down to earth. Definitely talk to this man before you make a decision on hiring an attorney, wish I had of found him 8 months ago.

Mark Hampton has become the best criminal defense attorney in Arkansas and is the standard by which all others are currently judged. A rare combination of intellect, street smarts and a fierce competitive edge, Mark defends with a vigor and compassion largely unseen in today's courthouse. He is a skillful pre-trial negotiator, masterful courtroom strategist and his ability to bond with a jury is a thing of beauty. He represented me when my life and freedom were on the line, negative publicity rampant and initially retained counsel inept and uninterested. He took over and stuck with me, never gave up even when my spirits were at their lowest and was a dear friend when all was said and done. Mark is a throwback to the days when lawyers were true professionals and respected members of their communities; an advocate willing to take on any cause regardless of the consequences he might suffer personally. Atticus Finch comes to mind and Mr. Hampton is more than worthy of the comparison. Perry Mason, F. Lee Bailey, Mark Hampton-each in his time unquestionably the best of the best.

I endorse attorney Mark Hampton as an excellent trial attorney in the area of criminal defense, both state and federal. Mark is an excellent criminal defense lawyer. I first met Mark in the late 90s when I was in law school and working for another criminal defense attorney on the first federal death penalty case in Arkansas. Mark represented one of the other defendants in the case. I was so impressed with Mark's trial skills in that case. There is no doubt that he will defend his clients to the VERY best of his ability.
