About Joshua

Learn Joshua’s areas of practice.

I have a passion for my clients and a deep respect for the law. I see each day as an opportunity to serve as an advocate for my clients, representing their interests in the courts and helping them navigate the legal system.

I handle a broad range of legal matters for my clients. My primary areas of practice are commercial and business related litigation, including contract disputes, securities issues, tort actions associated with various business entities, fiduciary responsibilities, ownership disputes, negotiable instruments and secured transactions, as well as the bankruptcy implications of such matters. I also represent clients in a variety of areas, including real estate litigation and probate litigation.

I am licensed to practice law in Arkansas and Oklahoma. In addition, I have been certified as a mediator by the Arkansas Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission, providing civil and probate mediation services.

When I am not practicing law, I love to spend time with my family, run long-distance races, hike up mountains, enjoy a good book, and take every opportunity I can to go hiking in the woods.

Our Credit Union has worked with Mr. McFadden for years. He is very knowledgeable and ethical. I wish that Joshua could work nationwide or at least in all of the states that we do business in. It is a pleasure working with him. He has a very uplifting attitude and is always willing to help. He returns phone calls and we do not need to follow up with Josh. He makes sure to take care of business. We have had success in most of the cases that Josh has worked. Josh pays attention to details and covers all aspects of each case.

Joshua McFadden
We were lucky to have found Mr. McFadden. He did exactly what we had asked him to do. We asked a lot of questions an he answered them in a was we could understand. He kept us informed at all times and we knew exactly where we were on the case at all times. We felt we were in good hands and never worried. He gave good advice when we did not know what to do and gave us options that we could think about. If we ever need a lawyer again, we would definitely call Mr. McFadden.
