We currently represent the second largest and eighth largest school districts in Arkansas. We are more than equipped to serve all your school district's legal needs.

 

Product liability

 

Our products liability practice serves people injured by defective items. These injuries can be the result of design defects, manufacturing flaws, or a failure to warn consumers of potential hazards.

 

Conversely, we defend companies against products liability lawsuits. These challenges to your company's goods and services can seriously damage your reputation. We provide skilled representation in civil court and negotiations to dismiss these problems as quickly and effectively as possible.

 

Our years of experience on both sides of these cases serve all of our clients. We have the added edge of knowing what your opponent is thinking.

 

Personal injury

 

As with our products liability practice, Bequette, Billingsley & Kees works on both the plaintiff and defense sides of personal injury cases. Injured people and those accused of causing injury need skilled legal service.

 

We litigate and negotiate all kinds of personal injury cases:

 

  • Professional liability

  • Auto accidents

  • Big truck accidents

  • Wrongful death

  • Medical malpractice

  • Catastrophic injuries

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

  • Orthopedic injury

 
 
 

 

Class action lawsuits

 

Our law firm has served as counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants in class action cases. Companies which are often targets of class actions include:

 

  • Product designers

  • Schools and universities
