Find An Elder Abuse Lawyer in Arkansas

There are many free, online directories you can use to find and read reviews of local attorneys or you can Google “Arkansas elder abuse lawyer” to see a list of attorneys near you.  However, you can also contact the Arkansas State Bar Association and ask for a referral for a personal injury attorney in your area.  Although many attorneys specialize in elder abuse and nursing home neglect cases, the general type of lawyer you need is a personal injury attorney.
