About Angela

Learn Angela’s areas of practice.

Angela was a prosecuting attorney in Northwest Arkansas for many years. She prosecuted cases in Washington County Circuit Court, Fayetteville District Court, Springdale District Court, Elkins District Court, Prairie Grove District Court, as well as other courts.  She has an intimate knowledge of criminal law and the procedures that prosecutors and law enforcement officers use to convict you of criminal charges. Angela has spent many hours in the court room trying and negotiating the outcome of criminal cases.  She will use this experience to fight for your case.

Mr. Norwood hand picked Angela to be on the Norwood & Norwood DWI/DUI and criminal defense legal team after observing for several years how skilled Angela was as a deputy prosecuting attorney.  Angela agreed to join the law firm because after being a prosecutor, and dealing with Norwood & Norwood on hundreds of cases, she admired how Norwood & Norwood fought for their clients.

Angela earned her undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Arkansas and went on to earn her law degree from the University Of Arkansas School Of Law in Fayetteville.  While in law school, Angela began working with the Innocence Project and continued to work with the Innocence Project after graduation. 

Angela is a member in good standing with the Arkansas Bar and a member of the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Amazing Results
I hired Angela after I was facing a pretty serious felony charge filed by the state. That's jail time, fines, loss of rights, loss of job opportunities, etc. I thought for sure my life was over, but Angela reassured me that there was much hope to be had in my case. In about a month, I received the news that no charges were going to be filed. Essentially the case was dropped! This has allowed me to get things back on track and a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. If you get into any kind of trouble, I would 10/10 recommend.

Highly Recommend!
I was facing a pretty serious charge that came up after quite a few years. Scared and unsure where to turn, I called Norwood and Norwood. From my consultation through the entire process, I truly felt truly at ease with Angela and her abilities. She worked directly with the prosecution and was able to get my entire charge dropped. After this experience I would recommend Angela to ANYONE. She truly saved my future.

Best Ever
Angela is the best lawyer in NWA. She held our hand through the whole process and the outcome was better than we could have hoped for. It was the worst experience our family has ever been through but Angela saved us. I would recommend her for any legal issue you ever have.

BEST LAW FIRM IN NWA
I was facing some serious charges three Felonies To be exact and I’m also currently on parole. I started with a public defender and she did not reassure me at all in fact I was pretty sure I would be going to jail. I got a hold of Angela Hyde At Norwood and Norwood law firm and as soon as I talked to her it was like a huge weight was lifted off me She believed in my innocence and told me she would fight tooth and nail to get the outcome that I wanted. Through the whole process the communication was excellent with Miss Angela and her assistant Miss Tonja I was even able to set up a payment plan to fit my budget which is a major blessing. Miss Angela got the outcome I wanted And all three Felonies were dismissed. So I guess it comes down to two questions, do you want to go to jail? or do you want to go home? If you want to go home hire Miss Angela with Norwood in Norwood law firm.

From Felon to Free Man!
I was dealing with 3 class D felonies, and likely to spend months in drug court as a first time offender. Angela worked a deal that was literally best case scenario; dropping my felonies to misdemeanors and giving me my life back. Her professionalism really showed throughout the entire 6 month process. She kept it real with me. Here’s what we’re facing, here’s the likely scenario. When I found out how great a deal she’d actually been able to work out, I was beyond happy. I cried tears of joy. I feel like Angela was a God send for my family and I. I will always recommend her to any and everyone in need of a lawyer. We are very thankful for her and her quality work.

Norwood&Norwood
After receiving my 3rd DWI I hired Angela from Norwood&Norwood. She handled my case through and through keeping me up to speed the entire time. She was able to negotiate with the prosecutors and land me a much better deal than I expected.

Residential burglary Dropped
She was great to work with. I sat back and she did all the leg work to produce a nolle pros on my behalf. That’s a class B violent felony for those of you keeping track and it’s just gone forever now. Truly a life saver.

Highly recommended!
Angela helped through a terrible time in my life. She led me through the steps to take for the best results given my situation. Wound up reducing a felony charge with potential prison time to a misdemeanor, a small fine and probation. Much better results than I thought possible and I couldn't be happier.

Angela Hyde saved my life when I was in a very bad situation. Without her I probably would’ve spent some time behind bars and I am very thankful for her and the Norwood and Norwood team.

Angela
I have hired Angela for all my legal needs. Angela and the team at Norwood and Norwood are amazing ! I was recently charged for DWI #3. It was important to me to keep my job and stay out of jail.Angela was able to do that and more! Many of the other charges were dismissed and fines were minimal. I would recommend Angela and the team to anyone with legal needs. I will not use anyone else ! Professional and friendly! Thank you for all your help

Expect the best!
Angela's ability to listen to your case, and communicate with you on everything that is happening with, and any changes is great. I have nothing but good things to say about the entire Norwood and Norwood staff. I was lucky that Angela Hyde was referred to me by Mr. Norwood. She represented me to where I had piece of mind to be able to continue on with my every day life. If your having trouble, and need a good lawyer she would be my recommendation!

I had two misdemeanor charges one was completely dismissed, and the other charge was reduced significantly, and negotiated to be off my record in just a year. Can’t recommend her enough.
