BEST LAWYER EVER
I hired Cathy at Norwood and Norwood and she did a great job! I had a DWI 2 and she kept me out of jail. I have used Norwood before and they always get me great results. She has always been very nice and let me make payments. Thank you for all you have done to help me.

Amazing law firm
I'm a young first year college student who went through a very unfortunate arrest. Stressed and lost my father and I searched for the best place to help my case. Norwood & Norwood happened to best the very best and top rated firm in the tri state area and I could not be more thankful that they were here to help me. By the end of my case I was able to have this weight lifted off my chest and all my stress relieved just in time for finals.

Drug Charges Dismissed
Norwood and Norwood did a great job of handling my case. After everything that happened within my situation they got the fine down to $365 and one charge dismissed. I definitely chose the right attorneys.

Great Firm!
This was a great firm, this was my first time in any trouble whatsoever and they were able to sit me down and explain exactly what was going on. Due to their diligence with the case they were able to find a discrepancy and have the charges dropped. Everyone was very personable and was easy to talk to, and worked with a busy schedule to make appointments. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone in the area.

MIP & Public Intox
I was charged with MIP and public Intox. Norwood & Norwood got my public Intox dropped and reduced my fines dramatically. In the end, I ended up getting money back from the court. Highly recommend this firm!

DWI - NOT GUILTY!
A few months ago I acquired a DWI arrest while under probation. This caused me to be charged with a DWI and a probation violation as well. I looked online and saw Norwood firm as one of, if not the top rated criminal defense team. I hired them and was kept informed every step of the way until they were able to have my probation violation dismissed, and my DWI case to be found not guilty!

Great Representation
Went to my DWI court hearing and met with Cathy. She helped me through the paperwork and the trial with the judge. Her strong defense of my case helped find me not guilty. What a great relief!

Harassment
I was charged with harassment by a family member. I hired Cathy Norwood as my leaf all defense team. They were a great firm to deal with and I am very happy with the defense they provided. I would refer them to anyone who needs legal defense. All of my charges were dismissed.

Won my case
I was charged with DWI, not taking the test, and fighting with the cops. The firm got all but a running the stop sign charge not guilty at trial. I would recommend this firm if you need an attorney.

Very helpful
They were very helpful and helped be get a great deal. They saved me more than expected. I hope to never have to use them again, but if I do I will hire Norwood again. They are a great law firm.

Pleased
As a first-time offender and never having lived in a small town before, I was shocked by the reaction to a relatively minor offense. I am glad I didn't try to handle it myself. I would have been in for a big surprise. Under the circumstances, then, I don't think I could have done any better, and I am pleased with the outcome. I found Kathy Norwood and her staff, moreover, to be considerate, understanding, and professional, and I would highly recommend her and the Norwood firm.

The Best of the BEST
The stark reality was that our son had been charged with a felony. We were in a foreign and desperate situation with no previous legal experiences. After extensive research, we chose Norwood & Norwood. Their "team approach" offered expertise from every attorney in the firm. Mrs. Norwood's years of negotiations with prosecutors was evident when a plea deal was reached, with an outcome that exceeded our hopes. The Norwood Firm gave our son a future without a felony conviction. Our highest recommendation is given to this excellent group of attorneys.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"When you need an advocate on your side, Cathy is the one to get the job done. I am routinely impressed with how well her relationships with prosecutors serve the best interest of her clients. She doesn't stop until the deal is as good as it can possibly be, or the matter is tried to the end. When determination and grit is needed to defend your case, Cathy is the one to call."
Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have never met such a savvy negotiator as Cathy Norwood. If you have been charged with a crime in Northwest Arkansas, you'd be well-advised to call Norwood & Norwood. These folks are sharks. They aggressively fight for their clients rights. When most people think of the firm, they may think of Doug Norwood. What they don't realize is that Cathy Norwood is the firm's secret weapon. And to a client charged with a serious crime, she is their new best friend."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I wholeheartedly endorse this attorney. She is passionate about helping her clients. I have referred many people to her and her firm."
Criminal defense Attorney | Dec 13
