Arnold, Batson, Turner & Turner, P.A. is a general practice law firm in Arkadelphia, Arkansas that focuses on consumer issues. The firm was founded in 2004 by former Arkansas Supreme Court Chief Justice W.H. “Dub” Arnold, Blake Batson, Dan Turner and Todd Turner. Members of the firm have represented consumers in over 50 class-action cases involving claims of excessive fees, improper debt collection tactics, defective products, unpaid wages, improper foreclosures and similar actions. Attorneys at ABT&T have also successfully represented clients in individual lawsuits which have resulted in verdicts and settlements for negligence claims, personal injury, commercial and business disputes, condemnations, real estate disputes and similar matters.
Many firms tout big verdicts as a testament to their success. ABT&T has secured large verdicts and settlements for its clients but is also proud of its involvement in landmark litigation in Arkansas. Members of the firm were involved in a series of trials and appeals which ultimately struck down the Arkansas Check Cashers Act—a law which had legalized unconstitutional payday lending practices. Lawyers from the firm prosecuted these cases for no fee but were able to secure a positive legal ruling for usury victims.
The firm served as lead counsel in cases which forced surety companies for payday lenders to be held legally responsible for judgments. It also secured a ruling from the Arkansas Supreme Court which resulted in the retroactive application of an exemption to the state’s charitable immunity doctrine for a medical negligence claim. Since its inception, the firm has been involved in dozens of cases which resulted in large verdicts and settlements for clients in both individual and class action cases.
The members of the firm are actively involved in community and civic affairs. The firm sponsors youth athletic teams and is a strong supporter of area high schools and universities. The firm supports the Arkadelphia All-Sports Booster Club, the Arkadelphia Football Club, the Arkadelphia Little League and many local civic groups and youth athletic organizations.
