Who We Are
James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A. is a Little Rock law firm which handles cases throughout Arkansas and across the United States of America. The firm’s practice areas are primarily litigation-based. The firm’s attorneys are licensed to practice law in all courts within the State of Arkansas, as well as many other courts across the country. Our attorneys have past experience working in large law firms, small law firms, and serving as in-house counsel at corporations. They have taught at numerous legal seminars, authored multiple law review articles and other publications, and are actively involved in their community and bar association.
Our clients not only know and have direct access to the attorneys working on their case but also maintain regular contact with the support staff members who assist the attorneys. The size of the firm is large enough to handle complex litigation yet small enough to ensure that clients receive individualized attention to their cases.
Who We Represent
The firm not only represents individuals, small businesses, sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, and limited liability companies, but also Arkansas-based, national Fortune 500 companies, the largest federally chartered credit union in the state, and other credit unions- locally and regionally. James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A. does not exclusively represent plaintiffs, defendants, individuals, business entities, or employers or employees – our practice caters to many types of clients needing assistance with respect to many types of legal matters.
James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A.’s experience has confirmed that litigation can often be a demanding, emotional, and expensive experience for any client. For this reason, we always consider it essential to first explore all available avenues that may lead to an amicable resolution prior to litigation, so long as both the client and our firm believe that the settlement offer is in the client's best interest. This step is critical because once we commence litigation, we never want the client or our firm to question why we didn't investigate every possibility to resolve the issue without litigation. This is especially true for plaintiffs or other parties seeking damages or other relief.
If you are coming to us as a present or potential defendant in a litigation case, we will utilize the same approach to ensure that all avenues for resolving the case amicably prior to full-blown litigation are explored. When we commence litigation, it is because that is what we and our client believe is the only reasonable option available. At that point, we will zealously litigate the case on our client’s behalf to achieve the best results possible.
Other than maintaining an internet presence with this website, James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A. elects not to advertise in the yellow pages or through other television, radio, or print media. Rather, the firm knows first-hand that the best “advertising” often comes from word-of-mouth and the referrals of our past and present clients, other attorneys in the community, and our contacts throughout the state of Arkansas.
