Tony Pirani Wins Statewide Recognition for Second Time

July 28th, 2017 Firm News

The Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys (AACDL) has recognized Nolan Caddell Reynolds associate Tony Pirani with the group’s annual President’s Award. This is Tony’s second win of this coveted industry accolade.

The President’s Award is selected each year by the Association’s outgoing president. To be nominated, an individual must go “above and beyond” for the association. The AACDL works with defense attorneys across the state to ensure justice and due process for persons accused of crimes or other misconduct.

“This year’s award was a pleasant surprise,” says Tony. “Our firm tries to be very active. This year, we organized a series of CLE (Continuing Legal Education) seminars, which are required for any practicing attorney. We offer classes in Fayetteville and Bentonville.”

During his almost seven years of membership with AACDL, Tony has served as president, was a long-time board member and chaired the Legislative Committee helping coordinate advocacy efforts and testifying on various bills at the Legislature. This year, he also took on the re-drafting of the AACDL’s by-laws.

Tony is showing no signs of slowing, as he is also one of the attorneys heading up Nolan Caddell Reynolds’ new office in Fayetteville. “I like being in a courtroom,” he says. “I like mixing things up. The firm’s ‘client first’ culture allows me to help more people, and this new office allows me to help them faster.”

Nolan Caddell Reynolds has served Northwest Arkansas for over thirty years. They have offices in Fort Smith, Rogers and Fayetteville.

Typically I don’t leave much feedback for services rendered, however, in this particular case I think everyone needs to know about my experience with Caddell Reynolds. I have used various attorneys throughout my adulthood for various reasons. Recently I retained an attorney, Joel Hargis, from this firm. If anybody is just satisfied with meeting expectations you need to consider this firm for exceeding expectations. This attorney and his staff far exceeded any expectations I had at the onset. Tammy was amazing in making me feel comfortable with the various entries and documentation needed. Mandy goes above and beyond in being responsive to questions and needs. An example which has never happened to me before with any law firm, was I sent an email late Saturday night requesting an appointment and information and on Sunday I got a response back. What law firm does that? Never in my experience has that ever happened to me. Joel is absolutely amazing. He doesn’t circumvent the law he explains the law that any novice can understand. He left no doubt in my mind of his knowledge, his experience, his attention to detail, and his overall diligence in making sure that I was going to be represented in a manner that my confidence level in my particular case went up 150%. I very much recommend this law firm and if the rest of their legal team is as good as the one I retained within this firm they will go far in servicing any client that needs representation. Amazing and astounding don’t really define or describe how I feel. One word comes to mind, indescribable!
