Options after a judgment is entered

Most consumers believe that the worst thing that can happen in a lawsuit is for a judgment to be entered against them.  However, a judgment merely establishes the right for one party to collect money (or property) as a result of a court order. A judgment creditor still has to collect on the judgment, which is not an absolute guarantee.

Proven family law attorney's traits include passion, empathy

At the Arkansas family law firm of Robertson, Oswalt & Associates (with offices in Little Rock and other locales across the state), we modestly submit that any attorney who does not deeply care for every client walking in the door could not last long in our business.

Credit agencies announce material reporting changes, Part 2

Our immediately preceding blog post touched upon a fundamental and troubling aspect relevant to credit-related information that is collected and evaluated by mega-sized reporting agencies.

Court decision could affect some divorced Arkansas military couples

Part of our broad-based family law practice at Robertson, Oswalt & Associates (with offices in Little Rock and additional locales across Arkansas) focuses upon our proven legal representation in divorces involving current and former military couples.

Opinion: recent "show IDs" case fundamentally concerning, Part 2

Here's something fundamental to note regarding the important realm of search and seizure in criminal law, which we stress on our website at the proven criminal defense firm of Robertson, Oswalt & Associates (with numerous offices across Arkansas): "It is critical to know when law enforcement has the right to reach into your pocket."

Commentary: recent police action a threat to personal liberty

It's hard to imagine virtually any resident of Arkansas or any other state not having a bit of a problem with a police officer who simply approaches and asks for identification, absent any reason whatever to suspect that a criminal act has been -- or is about to be -- committed.

What many Americans don't readily appreciate about estate planning

It's just for the comparatively older crowd. It's primarily -- if not exclusively -- applicable only to truly wealthy families. Yes, we've got kids, but not much of a personal stash, so there really doesn't seem much of a point to it.
