Practice areas

Graduating as a Student Athlete from Northeastern State in 2008 and from the University of Arkansas School of Law in December of 2014, Ben passed the Arkansas BAR exam and went to work for the Washington County Public Defender's Office. During his time there, he handled thousands of cases and gained immense trial experience. He was then selected by one of the largest criminal firms in Northwest Arkansas due to his ability to take cases to trial, negotiate the best deals possible and keep his clients out of jail. While at this firm, he increased his knowledge of DWI defense, Traffic Violations and Trial skills. After a year, Ben decided to open his own firm, founded on his criminal experience- he now offers a personal defense experience and other services to help as many people as possible.

OUTSTANDING representation in a complicated case!
I live in California, and was facing some very serious Felony charges in Arkansas. From the first call, Ben put my mind at ease with his clear knowledge of Arkansas Law and his professional yet friendly approach. I retained Ben immediately, and he went to work on my case. At the outset, Ben told me that he would work to get me a diversion, and although the prosecutor initially pushed hard for either an extensive Jail Sentence or a long term of Felony Probation, Ben worked hard with the State and Prosecutor to secure a diversion for me, and I'm now back at home in California, fulfilling the requirements to have all charges dropped. No probation - just time to make things right. I am so grateful to Ben and his team, and I would highly recommend him if you are seeking a defense attorney who understands how to navigate the courts, can negotiate effectively with prosecutors, and works hard to secure the best outcome possible for his clients. I don't ever want to get into trouble in Arkansas again - but if I do, Ben Catterlin will be my first call.

Fantastic representation
I was in a bit of trouble and Mr. Catterlin put my mind at ease. I honestly never even had to set foot in a courtroom. He handled everything for me and kept me up to date with it all. He managed to get all charges dropped. Would definitely recommend if you find yourself in trouble.

DWI DRUGS DISMISSED
I was with DWI-Drugs, PCS and IMP Lane Change. They were able to get the DWI and IMP Lane Change dismissed and on the PCS keep it under advisement and keep my DL from being suspended. Great Law firm, very friendly and easy to contact and they are very good with communication.

Successful Defense!
I am grateful to Ben and the team at Norwood & Norwood for their successful defense in my recent DWI case. Ben was professional, responsive and supportive during what was a very challenging time both professionally and personally. I would highly recommend Ben for your legal needs.

THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE
I am so happy with my attorney Ben Catterlin of Norwood & Norwood. He went with me to my driver's license hearing to fight a suspention for a DWI arrest. They were going to make me put a breathe machine in my car for 6 months and were going to take my CDL for a year. This would be horrible for my job and my family. Ben argued all the right issues at each step of the case and the hearing officer found not enough evidence to suspend. It is a miracle for me to not loose my License. I have heard how hard it is to win at driver control. think of your happiest day ever- multiply it by 10 and that is how I feel about this law firm.
