Louis Lim one of the best!! When i was arrest for DWI. I felt pretty hopeless. A friend recommended Louis. Louis saved me by getting me a not guilty verdict at trial. Louis is not only a lawyer but a mentor, and a good person.

I highly recommend Louis Lim. He isn't just a great lawyer, but he became an awesome friend and role model. He gave me great advice to turn my life around, and he also got me out of my current situation. He did not guarantee anything, but he promised he would do his best to get me what I would like to say-a second chance in life and he did just that. I am forever grateful for his hard work and advice. I am in a better place today thanks to him.

Juvenile law
Mr. Lim represented my son in a juvenile matter. He was very knowledgeable about the law and helped us understand the process and the possible outcomes. I am so thankful my son ended up with the best possible outcome. I can’t imagine trying to navigate the situation without a professional. I highly recommend him.

CASE DISMISSED ON ALL CHARGES
That feeling of exoneration you get when you finally go to court and hear the Judge say “CASE DISMISSED ON ALL CHARGES”. Friends, life can come at you fast. And if you need an Attorney (and let’s face it sooner or later we all will) there is absolutely none better, hands down, no competition, than Louis Lim. He has represented me flawlessly now multiple times over a varying degree of legal matters over the years. Louis is well known, liked, and most importantly respected by the Judges and Prosecutors in our area. Throughout the course of my life I have dealt with several Attorneys in my business and personal affairs and none compare to Louis. He has offices in Springdale and Rogers and can be reached at 479-756-0101 or online at The Law Office of Louis Lim. Also feel free to DM me for any questions!

Caring Attorney
I've been going through a difficult time in my life, and Louis helped me get out of all of my situations one by one. He shows that he cares for his client's, and he definetly worked really hard to get all of my cases dismissed.

Excellent lawyer
Louis was recommended to me by family and I’m forever grateful to him and his team! Mr. Lim and his assistant were very professional and kind. They kept in constant communication and answered all questions I had. Thanks to him I was able to avoid jail time and reduce fines I was facing. I will definitely go back to him in the future if ever needed!
