Wendy Howerton obtained her undergraduate degree with a BSE in English from Arkansas State University, and subsequently received her JD from the University of Arkansas School of Law. Howerton has practiced in the field of criminal defense from the first moment she entered her practice. She has handled everything from a simple disorderly conduct to a double capital murder case.

After Howerton’s first year of practice in the private sector, she took a job with the Washington County Public Defender Office defending any and all misdemeanors in Washington County for indigent defendants. During the two years Howerton spent with that office, she was the only public defender handling those types of cases for the entire county. As such, Howerton gained an immense amount of experience and became very familiar with the courts, prosecutors and judges in Washington County, and the laws surrounding DWI/DUI charges.

After returning to the private practice of law for a few years, Howerton decided to open her own firm where she can focus on the type of cases she enjoys most. Howerton Law Firm is composed of three associate attorneys, two staff members and one managing partner. The Howerton Law Firm Arkansas general practice attorneys are happy to defend your rights on any criminal case to ensure you get the best representation available and the best possible outcome.
