In most states, the Firm may represent clients in states other than Arkansas in matters incidental to its Arkansas practice. In other states, the Firm must associate with an attorney licensed to practice law in that state. This is a case and state specific inquiry which the Firm will discuss with its clients.
No attorney-client relationship exists absent a written agreement between the client and the Firm. The Firm offers a free initial consultation. To ensure that potential, current, and future clients are protected, a potential client will submit an intake form to so that the Firm can determine if a conflict of interest exists before the initial consultation. Upon agreement, and at the sole discretion of the Firm, the Firm will enter into a contract for legal services (this is called an “Engagement Letter) with the potential client. The Engagement Letter will detail the scope and duration of the representation, the fee to be charged, and the responsible attorney. In the event that the Firm must associate with another attorney to provide complete representation (such as out-of-state legal services, or legal services with mixed legal issues requiring multiple specialities) the Engagement Letter will detail that association if known at the time.

You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state or any particular state or case.
Statutes of limitations are especially important. Every state has laws called “statutes of limitations” that set a deadline to file a lawsuit. A lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries. Some states have a three-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other states may be longer or shorter. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.
