Autumn Tolbert


I am an experienced trial attorney who has handled numerous homicide cases, hundreds of DWIs, and just about everything type of criminal case in between. I also take on certain civil matters and recently received a favorable verdict for two small business owners after they were sued over a partnership dispute. Whether in front of a jury or negotiating with opposing counsel, I believe in working hard for my clients every step of the way.

A native Arkansan, I graduated from the University of Arkansas School of Law and currently live in Fayetteville with my husband and children. My spare time is spent camping, reading, and writing about politics. Last year, I accepted a volunteer position as one of the coaches of the University School of Law traveling trial teams. I am proud to have recently received the President's Award from the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
