Firm Details

Anderson, Murphy & Hopkins, L.L.P., in Little Rock, Arkansas, founded in 1980, specializes in defense of civil litigation. Our attorneys are known for persistence in getting cases resolved. We do not take a uniform, "one size fits all" approach to any of our cases. We make the effort to learn as much as possible about each case, so that our representation will be tailored to meet our client's targeted outcome. We recognize that each case has its own unique set of facts, which are affected by witness statements, physical evidence, medical records and other matters that shape the course a case will take.

We provide clients with a great depth of experience combined with a high level of personal service. We strongly believe that each legal matter calls for the right combination of innovation, creativity, and commitment. Our goal is to meet and exceed client expectations in the handling of their legal matter. We work hard and are adept at finding swift, creative solutions.

While we are experienced and aggressive trial lawyers, we understand that often it may be in our client's best interest to settle without going to trial. When necessary, we are always prepared and willing to try a case in order to achieve the best outcome.
