Meet Cody W. Dowden, Attorney at Law
Your Bentonville Criminal Lawyer

I am here when you need to discuss the matters of your case in detail. Initial consultations cost nothing with no strings attached. With over a decade of experience handling criminal cases, my professional background as a former prosecutor equips me with the ability to navigate my clients through the complex justice system effectively. Obtaining a "not-guilty" verdict on your behalf becomes my top priority when you entrust me with your case.
