Before Degen Clow became a criminal defense attorney, he was a respiratory therapist. Yet, something drew him to study law — and ever since then, he’s been practicing criminal defense.
Degen Clow joined whLaw in 2015 after serving as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for several years in Pulaski County. During that time, he spent every day in court, nicknaming it his “office away from the office.” There, he was able to develop the right confidence, charisma, and most importantly, he learned what it takes to beat a criminal charge.
Degen attended the University of Arkansas, where he was a member of the Razorback football team before going onto the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences with a degree in Cardio-Pulmonary Care. He worked as a respiratory therapist before attending law school. Now, Degen is licensed to practice law in all Arkansas state courts and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas. He and his wife Lauren live in Benton with their four children, Davis, Arden, McCall and Greer.
If you’ve been arrested with a criminal charge, contact Degen Clow at wh Law as soon as possible. Practicing exclusively in criminal defense, Degen can help you no matter the type of charge:
Whether you were pulled over under the influence or were the victim of a motor vehicle accident under the influence, the first thing you should do is call whLaw immediately. Since these trials can get very complicated, Degen will be there to analyze your case and save your reputation and record.
If you were arrested for possessing controlled substances such as methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, oxycontin, steroids, ecstasy, LSD, or other types of narcotics, your case might result in state and federal charges. Degen can help protect your rights and minimize your sentence as much as possible.
If you are suspected of drug trafficking, your local police department will have call in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to investigate your case. There is also a chance that you may be charged with federal indictments.
If an unregistered weapon was involved in a crime you committed, then be sure to contact Degen as soon as possible so he can help clear any accusations before charges are made.
If you are involved in forgeries or RICO violations (such as gambling, kidnapping, bribery, and arson), then contact whLaw immediately so that Degen can defend your rights.
Even the smallest theft can quickly advance into a severe case. In robbery or burglary cases, you may be charged with a prison sentence, especially if a weapon is involved. Wh Law and Degen can help present and argue in favor of your case.
Whether it’s manslaughter or murder, homicide is a very complicated case to navigate. Wh Law and Degen will utilize the appropriate tools and present arguments that will preserve your rights and represent in the best light possible.
Crimes that you commit as a juvenile can stay on your record for years to come. This has long-term effects and might prevent you from getting a job as an adult. Degen can help defend your case and work towards erasing it from your file.
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime, then you need an attorney to fight for you to avoid registering as a sex offender. Being a registered sex offender limits where you can live and takes away a tremendous amount of freedom, as it significantly affects your reputation in your community.
Degen and the team at wh Law are experienced in appeal processes, both first-time and repeals.
Firstly, never admit fault or imply that you are guilty of doing anything. The fact is that what you say can make or break your case. After you have been processed, ask for Degen Clow from whLaw, who will come to you and gather information so that he could lessen your chance of conviction.
When you are in the police’s custody, remain calm and silent. Be sure that you only talk to your lawyer about what happened. The police officers may try to interview you and get your side of the story, but be sure that you don’t consent to this unless your lawyer is present. Degen will help advise you on what to say and when to say it so that nothing accidentally jeopardizes your case.
Depending on the type of crime, there will likely be an investigation where the police will interview you and collect data and evidence. You may have the opportunity to ask for a judge or jury trial. In cases like this, it’s always best to have a lawyer who’s undoubtedly in your corner to help you get the best results possible.
Degen and his team will conduct their own investigation in which they will gather facts, evidence, and scientific arguments against the prosecution. By doing separate research, Degen can guarantee a better result for your case.
During the trial and investigation process, there will be many important decisions you have to make. Your attorney will stand beside you to help you, including deciding whether you want a judge or jury trial and if you want to look into negotiating a plea agreement. He will offer you personalized counsel and only suggest a decision based on what is most suitable.
The professionals at wh Law care about your rights and will work tirelessly to make sure you are represented adequately and aggressively. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, misdemeanor, or a felony, contact Degen Clow at wh Law immediately so that he can begin working on the best possible outcome for your case.
