Our Fayetteville, Arkansas criminal defense lawyers have defended over five hundred cases in Fayetteville District Court alone, and about 1,200 cases in Washington County. If you need experienced criminal defense attorneys that have tried cases in every District Court in Washington County, King Law Group is ready to assist.
If the state has a rock solid case against you and you do not want to go to trial, our Fayetteville, Arkansas criminal lawyers have an encyclopedic knowledge of what the prosecutor will likely offer to settle your case. Additionally, many criminal defense lawyers in Fayetteville do not know that you can work off your fines and fees at $15 an hour while working for any non-profit anywhere in the world. You don’t have to choose to work off your fines, but we commend those who decide to give back to the community instead of paying money into the pockets of local government.
In fact, if you are a University of Arkansas Student and you are charged with a crime, the University will most likely find out and punish you to roughly 15-50 hours of public service. This is true even if it is not University of Arkansas Police Department that makes the arrest or citation. Our criminal defense lawyers in Fayetteville will then help you “double dip” those hours with Fayetteville District Court.
For example, if JBoard sentences you to 25 hours of community service, you already qualify for $375 of credit toward your Fayetteville District Court fines.
