DETERMINED AND RELENTLESS REPRESENTATION - I HAVE OVER 24 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE LITIGATING CASES FOR THE RESIDENTS OF NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. HTTPS://WWW.JHATFIELDLAW.COM/

Since graduating law School Jason has represented the residents of northwest Arkansas in hundreds of depositions and bench trials. He has tried numerous cases to jury in Arkansas Circuit Courts and Federal Courts. He has successfully reversed trial court rulings at the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals. In 2009, Jason completed a three-week jury trial fighting against the improper usage of cancer-causing carcinogens in which his closing argument was quoted by New York Times bestselling author David Kirby in his book, Animal Factory.

Jason has a passion fighting for justice and fairness for Arkansans who have been injured at no fault of their own. He is not afraid litigating injury cases that need to be litigated and shaping the law on tough issues. Additionally, he has worked long hours attempting to educate legislators on the negative effect proposed workers’ compensation bills would have on injured workers and has testified multiple times to legislative committees in an attempt to keep a level playing field.

Injury Settllement
Jason Hatfield helped me with my injury case and was amazing! He’s sincere and quick with getting results. He went above and beyond to help me get my settlement, as he knew I was moving and made sure to get my compensation as fast as he could. I highly recommend Jason to anyone that needs a injury lawyer.

SS Disability Appeal Approved !
I originally was with another lawyer for my Social Security disability case but with a huge lack of communication etc. hey said to go another route with Jason Hatfield and I wish I would’ve went to him first. My first appointment he sat me down and went over the process with me and actually listened to me and made time for me. During the whole process whenever I had questions I was able to receive immediate answers. Mr Hatfield and his office staff were always there to guide me through, They are very professional and very courteous, I would definitely recommend him!

Car Accident
After being injured in a car accident and not being able to get the insurance company to pay me anything for my injuries I finally hired Jason Hatfield. He was able to settle my case quickly and for more than I thought I would ever receive. Hiring Jason was the best decision I’ve made and would highly recommend him to all of my family and friends.

Traffic Court
Yes , normally if you get a speeding ticket you just pay for it and it's not a big deal. In my situation it was a ticket in a construction zone on a Saturday when no one was working. So I asked Jason to help me out which he did by going the extra mile to call all the local city agencies to find out and verify if somebody was actually working that day. Which there was not . Jason is very thorough and ensures that all the loose ends are tied up and is prepared for court. The outcome was good and fair.

Exceptional
A few years ago Jason handled my worker's compensation claim and, most recently, my husband's Social Security Disability case. In both instances, the outcome was positive and we could not have been more pleased with the service we received from Jason and his staff. Our concerns and questions were always quickly addressed and, while no one wants to go through these situations, our confidence in how professionally they were handled made the process go smoothly. We would not hesitate to use Jason in the future and would recommend him to anyone needing legal services.
