Join us in congratulating Bennett Nolan in his recent appointment as a special justice for the Supreme Court of Arkansas.

Bennett Nolan, of counsel at Caddell Reynolds, was one of seven people appointed to serve as a special justice and will replace Justice Karen R. Baker, who disqualified herself from the case.

This is a great honor for Bennett Nolan and our staff at Caddell Reynolds congratulates him on this appointment.

Governor Asa Hutchinson appointed seven people to serve as special justices to consider a petition filed by the Arkansas Supreme Court with itself seeking the dismissal of ethics complaints against the high court on Thursday.

These special justices were appointed to fill in for supreme court justices, who have filed a lawsuit challenging a disciplinary panel’s decision to charge them with ethics violations.

The complaints were filed against the regular Supreme Court justices by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission over how the high court punished Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wen dell Griffen for his protest against the death penalty in April 2017.

The high court banned Griffen from handling any more cases connected to the death penalty. Griffen had ruled in a case involving execution drugs, by blocking their use in scheduled executions, and then participated in the protest.

Caddell Reynolds. Make the right call!

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed. My attorney, was engaged in my journey, understood my pain and immediately addressed my worries with a solution. My attorney truly has treated my like an individual case, caring about my needs and why I was having to file. I had a team of excellent staff that provided a professional experience with a wonderful attitude and work ethic that has made a life changing event bearable. Brooke whom assisted my attorney is amazing and personable very attentive. The little time I had to spend in the office was great. I couldn’t recommend the Caddell Reynolds team enough- the team starts at the door with the incredible Yolanda to greet you when you walk in!
